Framingham, Massachusetts – (The Hosting News) – July 13, 2007 – Managed technology services firm, Global Netoptex, Inc. (GNi), will be featured at IDG World Expo’s inaugural Next Generation Data Center Conference and Expo (NGDC). Derek Wise, President and CEO of Global Netoptex, will present at the event, scheduled to take place August 6-9, 2007.
The event will focus on new technologies and their impact on the data center, covering mission-critical applications and the technology supporting those applications including power and cooling issues. Mr. Wise’s session ”Why Outsource? What to Know and Consider,” will be held Thursday, August 9 from 11:30 to 12:30 PM.
The session will discuss some of the advantages of outsourcing generally, and more specifically, of using Master Outsourcers. Outsourcing often means access to economies of scale, expertise and vendor leverage not available to the traditional business in the SMB, Digital Media, Games, and SAAS spaces. But, outsourcing to 25 highly qualified individual companies in segmented spaces causes too much burden on internal management teams, quality control is nearly impossible, and focus is taken away for the core business. Using Master Outsourcers adds to the value chain and provides the best TCO for Servers, Bandwidth, Support, Colocation, Power, among the many other products typically used in a datacenter.
Mr. Wise is a decorated Marine and his current position is the culmination of over ten years of technical networking, communications and security experience.
