KEYNOTE

The Future Defined Data Centre

 

Data is not the new oil – data is the blood keeping the company fed with the oxygen it needs to survive.  The data centre is made up of many and various blood vessels, from the arteries of an on premise cloud environment, through the veins of an ageing SAN to the capillaries of the laptop SSD or even smaller onto a USB data key.  In order for the company to thrive in this ever changing world -  where so many of today’s top companies exist only in the data which they hold -  we need to take very careful decisions about how we store, access, manipulate and indeed use it to impact our P&L.

 

Get it right and we can thrive.  Get it wrong and we know what happens when there are obstructions in the flow of blood.

 

Lenovo Data Centre Group do not have to be concerned about maintaining a business on the back of selling traditional data environments; we don’t need to sell the next SAN to survive.  We also don’t have any particular infrastructure solutions which we need to tout as our own.  Instead we work with our customers and our many partners to recommend and deliver the best possible solution in the management of that data.

 

After all, it’s in our DNA.
