Datacloud Europe 2016London/Monaco, 11 January 2016Datacloud Congress Europe which meets this June 7-9 in Monaco, will feature the critical eco system of cloud connectivity, fiber networks and data centers as the utilities to the world’s businesses.

The enterprise driven programme for the international forum and exhibition, now in its 12th year with 60 countries represented, will extensively draw on business users from financial services, transport, auto, media and gaming, pharmaceutical, retail, oil and gas, telco and other key verticals. The congress will explore how they are responding to the challenges of energy, security, connectivity, interoperability, and using Cloud enablement, continuous delivery and DevOps lifecycles for faster rollout of new features and applications and for sustaining business innovation.

“The content focus is extremely timely with most enterprises shifting at least half of their infrastructure to Cloud-based platforms over the next 24 months,” commented Philip Low of BroadGroup, the event researchers and producers.

“The need to connect outside of the data center to business Cloud users is not only critical, but also more complex as already evidenced in the selection of location for new facilities.”

Kathy Schneider, SVP Product and Marketing EMEA, Level 3 Communications said: “Leveraging the cloud successfully should be underpinned by a solid network strategy. Level 3 is a trusted connection to the networked world, including the cloud, providing network services that enable organisations to achieve their growth, efficiency and security goals.
