Big Data is all the buzz for most organizations today. Whether you are a research laboratory or a retail enterprise, Big Data Analytics has been identified as the solution to any challenge.

Before rolling out any Big Data platform, organizations need to ensure that they have the infrastructure that can support it. This means retrofitting their data centers with sufficient power, adequate computing hardware, and a reliable network for fast connectivity. In addition, it requires planning, establishing procedures, and allocating resources in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

DCD’s Preparing Data Centers for Big Data conference gathers CIOs, CTOs, IT managers and data center professionals to discuss the strategies and infrastructure needed to make your data center Big Data-ready.

Don’t get caught unprepared for your Big Data deployment. Register your place now to hear from leading industry experts and practitioners who will lend their expertise and ensure that you are equipped for the demands of complex analytics.

Viewing presentations after a DatacenterDynamics conference

Registered attendees of an event are able to access the majority of the material presented after an event. We are introducing a new system - PresentationPLAYBACK - which enables you to listen to a full sound recording of the session along with the PowerPoint and any associated movies in a single file.

You will therefore need to have a recent version of Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer in order to view them (Google Chrome Users need not worry about this, as it's pre-built-in). Although we now endeavour to record all presentations in this format, occasionally - for technical reasons beyond our control - it is not possible to fully capture all sessions; in such cases you will only be able to view a PDF.

To access PresentationPLAYBACK you must be signed into your account. Click on the MyDCD button on the top navigation panel which will take you to your personal homepage - on the right hand column you will find an area headed 'My Presentations'. Here are listed the conferences you have access to (see access and restrictions below). The links will take you to the programme page of that conference, and by clicking on a session you will be taken to the individual conference asset where you will find the feature. Alternatively you can navigate to the conference site you wish and acess the file directly from there - remember you must be signed in.

DatacenterDynamics Conference sessions with this feature available will display the PresentationPLAYBACK icon:

The player is simple to use. Click on the play button for automatic playback, or advance through the slides.
