The Storage Networking Industry Association for Australia and New Zealand (SNIA ANZ) in conjunction with IDG Australia, publisher of Computerworld Australia and CIO Australia, have announced that the two organisations will develop and host a new technical symposium for managing information infrastructures.
The event, Implementing Information Infrastructure Symposium (IIIS), will take place at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney on 2-3 August, 2011 and will inform, educate and demonstrate the latest technologies in data security, data management and protection, Cloud, infrastructure convergence and virtualisation.
“SNIA ANZ has designed the event to showcase all of the technologies businesses need to manage storage information architectures,” said SNIA ANZ chairman, Craig Scroggie. “The event is designed to bring the industry together.”
“We anticipate all major vendors, integrators and channel partners will come together in one place, meaning delegates can derive value from having access to a broad range of technology solutions demonstrated by leading subject matter experts.”
IIIS will be held over two days at Sydney’s Hilton Hotel and will feature expert presentations, technology workshops and implementation guides, training sessions, and most importantly a state of the art technical demonstration laboratory.
“SNIA ANZ is pleased to be partnering with IDG to bring what we hope to be a regular event to Australian end users,” Scroggie said. “As the industry standards body we will work with our Australian members and others in bringing to users the skills necessary to solve the complexity of today’s infrastructure issues.
"IDG will help this process by reaching out to their extensive technical and professional readers from Computerworld and CIO Magazine.”
Davy Adams, managing director of IDG Australia, added “IDG has a long history with SNIA worldwide and we are delighted to be an event partner for them in this region. Our local research clearly shows that many of our readers are planning to implement information protection solutions this year and the IIIS event will be most helpful to the CIO and technical user in providing guidance.”
