Data is the new global currency. Cloud computing, mobile devices, big data, compliance, government and industry imposed regulations, customer demands, redundancy, data security and business recovery plans… are all factors which add to the complex role and omnipresence of data these days. Quebec has all the required aspects to become a major player in this new global economy.

In 2013 analysts predict that over a third of data centers will face problems related to lack of capacity in terms of space, power and/or cooling. Owners and operators therefore need to make strategic decisions based on a multitude of factors. What are your needs in terms of cost management, environmental considerations, security and availability, redundancy, latency, proximity, etc? What are your critical services and what could be outsourced? What are your priorities and how can you guarantee continuity?

Up-dating existing facilities, migrating and consolidating, building a new data center, outsourcing, moving to the cloud – there are as many answers as there are questions! As 2013 is set to be the year of massive cloud adoption, this will obviously be a key topic at DCD Converged Montreal 2013. According to industry estimates, the cloud computing market will generate over a billion dollars by 2014. Despite the questions and doubts which still surround this model at the moment, it is becoming an increasingly popular solution. We will cover all aspects and shapes of the cloud, the myths surrounding it, the real risks involved, advantages and real-life results.


"Very well structured, great line up of presenters, extremely informative and professional."
"Superbe structure, intervenants excellents, extremement instructif et professionnel."
- William Collier, CEO, Interstitial Systems


The data center, as a vault for this new currency, is at the heart of each and every company and organisation and must be seen as an integral part of the business. It is a highly complex and intricate world though, rarely understood by those who are not directly involved in it. The lightning-speed developments of the technology world can overwhelm the under-prepared professional and in light of this, how can you guarantee your team’s effectiveness and efficiency?

DCD Converged Montreal 2013 will address the data center industry and operations as a whole and in depth on the basis of real-life examples, end-user case studies and shared views of data center thought-leaders and experts from Canada and abroad.

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.

Access and restrictions

The conference presentations you can view depend on your membership level.
