On April 19, 2015, the Cormant team embarked on a journey to our neighboring state for AFCOM’s Data Center World (DCW), Las Vegas as we do every year. DCW combines various information sessions on a wide variety of topics from renowned industry thought leaders with over 1,000 attendees, hundreds of vendors, and a vibrant Vegas setting.
Just some of the reasons why we love Data Center World:
- Speaking sessions are vendor-neutral. There’s no sales pitch and speakers are selected based on subject matter expertise, not marketing budget, providing more benefit to attendees since the goal is education.
- Well organized. Whether you’re an attendee or a vendor, the entire event runs flawlessly year after year.
- Trending topics. DCW does a great job selecting the topics that attendees really care about with multiple tracks to choose from so there are plenty of sessions of interest to you.
- Opening networking reception: At DCW Las Vegas in particular, the opening reception is at the Dolphin Bar which is just a great setting to meet peers.
DCIM was a highlight of the show, with multiple information sessions on the topic. On Day 1, Cormant was invited to participate as thought leaders in two vendor-neutral, DCIM sessions.
