This Transform the Datacentre Workshop is a ½ day event delivered jointly with Microsoft on 8th April 2015. Microsoft has been developing its Modern Datacentre and Cloud solutions over the past years and recently announced the availability of its latest private, hybrid and public cloud solutions that allow your organisation to build, deliver and manage hybrid cloud services on your terms.
Today’s applications need a modern platform that enables IT to manage all datacentre resources across multiple clouds, allows applications to scale dynamically, and allows you to secure and unlock insights on any data anywhere. Microsoft’s Cloud OS approach delivers a consistent and comprehensive set of capabilities via Windows Server, Hyper-V, System Center and Microsoft Azure, across 3 clouds: on premise, Microsoft Azure and service providers, allowing you to take advantage of the hybrid cloud on your terms, without fear of lock-in.
With Windows Server 2003 reaching end-of-support on July 14th 2015, now is the right time to transform your datacentre and plan your migration to a modern platform built on Windows Server 2012 R2, Hyper-V and Microsoft Azure, and managed by Microsoft System Center 2012 R2.
The Road to a modern datacentre and the cloud might seem like a daunting journey for organisations that have already made significant investments in technology and applications. We will discuss how you can take a structured approach to migrating your legacy infrastructure and applications to a modern platform and extend your datacentre to the public cloud.

- Understand how the Microsoft Cloud OS vision can benefit your datacentre and business
- Learn about Microsoft’s Modern Datacentre and Hybrid Cloud solutions
