Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 15, 2006
Every year IT departments have to deal with increases of 60-80% to their data warehousing load. Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPPA compliance and regulation issues account for most of these retention increases and IT departments are under pressure to curb warehousing spending and to effectively manage data storage assets and infrastructure.
What are the solutions? CIO’s are scrambling to find cost-effective data warehousing options. Data consolidation provides IT executives with a way to reduce maintenance fees and to cut back on overall IT personnel but data standardization seems to be the preferred option of many Infrastructure Architects.
These options provide their own questions, though. How can you cost-effectively align your IT environment with performance and scalability to achieve long lasting benefits from your data assets management and infrastructure?
Join us for this live, interactive web conference for an analysis of how companies are dealing with the growing volume of data. Guy Charron manages more than 2,000 data centers at Statistics Canada and he recently organized the data centers consolidation. He will present the latest results of the data standardization process that is scheduled to be completed by the end of the 2006 summer.
Take away points include:
- Data consolidation; is it necessary for your company? What are the benefits and disadvantages?
- How to get maximum ROI from your data storage cost center and decrease management costs
- Overall data standardization strategies within particular platforms to improve security and compliance. What’s the standard hardware configuration, software stack, middleware stack around those applications?
- Management software to support control of all data centers, including infrastructure centers in remote areas
