DCD says India will increase its data infrastructure investment at a faster rate of 19.6% CAGR

Local & International speakers will discuss The Future of Digital Infrastructure Industry at The Enterprise Datacenter Transformation Event: DCD Enterprise > in Mumbai on November 9, 2017. 

DCD Enterprise > Mumbai Annual Conference is set to welcome 350 senior IT professionals as well as 20 exhibitors and 20 speakers on the 9th of November. Designed to showcase the latest innovations, covering the full ecosystem for how enterprise data centers are being re-defined and how the economics of digital business, IT and data center service delivery is being re-shaped. As the IoT, Big Data and Clouds drive the industry forward, DCD>Enterprise is about not forgetting the engine.

Key findings and panel topics include: 
Accelerating Digital Transformation in India: The Future of Innovation and Building Smart Infrastructure Systems for the Digital Age. Research conducted by DCD indicates that from 2016 to 2020 the proportion of India’s IT footprint kept ‘on premises’ will drop from 57% to 43% in line with most maturing markets. Over the same period, colocation will increase its share from 18% to 21%, public cloud from 11% to 21% and other outsourcing environments from 14% to 15%

Technology Industry Outlook 2017: Insight on growth opportunities and challenges with digital infrastructure in India: The increase in investment in data infrastructure will increase at a faster rate in India (19.6% CAGR between 2014 and 2020) than the global average (6.4%). The asset base needed to achieve this across the time period will also increase (by 11.5% CAGR) compared to the global CAGR of 3.6%. There are a number of key drivers for this rate of increase –meeting the expectations of a growing population which is young, increasingly IT-literate and eager to be part of a digital world. Like other maturing markets, India does not have to follow the path of the established IT world. Its companies can move straight into using the different data housing and processing options now available here rather than the established path of starting on=premises and then migrating 

Emerging Trends Shaping the Data Center of the Future: While the proportion of IT work kept in-house will be eroded, especially by cloud and outsourcing, there will always be a role for the ‘in-house’ data center. Learning’s from how the very large global players design and operate their data centers can be applied to smaller facilities once the business case for so doing is established. Concerns about the reliability of the grid will add to pressures on efficiency, while edge processing has established a foothold in India and this will shape the requirements of devices and facilities to drive future consumer and business IT capabilities

The program is geared towards C-Level executives, senior managers, department heads as well as technical, operational and other specialist staff within end-user, colocation, cloud and IT service provider companies.

The day will include 18 sessions across 2 halls from 8am to 5pm, including case studies, thought leadership presentations, hour-long participatory panels, as well as technical break-out sessions and thought labs. Displays and demonstration will be available in the adjacent Exhibition Hall.

Sessions will include coverage of Software Defined Infrastructure, Big Data & IOT, Power usage efficiency, Datacenter Modernization, new services and providers arriving in India, and the evolving hyper-converged and automated data center.
