On Wednesday January 13th, I will be co-hosting a Roundtable Dinner with Chicago area CIOs on the topic of data centers and the data center industry at large. The event is sponsored by CIO Magazine and is likely to be a wide ranging conversation given the mix of executives slated to come. The group will be made up of technology leadership from a diverse set of industries including Universities, Manufacturing, Financial Institutions, and Hospitality.
I am betting the topics will range from data center legislation, impact of the cloud, technologies, and key trends.
I am looking forward to some good mid-western steak, great conversation, and walking away from the meeting with more important perspectives on what we are facing as an industry.
I will try and post a summary of topics discussed later this week.
