  • The Strategic Need for Operational Focus in the Data Center Jul 24 2019 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Rich Van Loo, VP - Facilities Management Services and Todd Traver, VP - IT Strategy & Optimization
    Even the best designed, fully commissioned and fault tolerant data centers can and will fail, if operational processes and procedures are not well documented and closely followed. In addition, the complexity of today’s data center infrastructure and control systems make facilities operations increasingly difficult to execute flawlessly.

    To provide error-free facilities operations, there are many critical infrastructure activities that need to be executed, day in and day out. And, due to complexity, preventable operational errors continue to be the predominant source of data center facilities outages.

    This webinar will discuss critical facilities operations areas for focus along with lessons learned from hundreds of M&O (management and operations) reviews conducted around the globe.
