Value of Attending
The goal of Tier1 Research in producing its first-ever European event is to provoke unique dialogue, in the context of in-depth insight from T1R analysts, on how to meet head-on the challenges that face hosting executives, financial professionals and industry leaders. The Hosting Transformation Summit focuses on the economics of the hosting market and how, by appreciating today’s management challenges and understanding the long-term evolution of the sector, a hosting, datacenter or Internet application provider can position itself to succeed.
For three years, the Tier1 Research analyst team has examined the hosting market at our annual conference in Las Vegas. Over the course of those three years, T1R analysts charted the rise of the hosting industry out of the ashes of the telecom crash. Now, Tier1 is taking on the European market with a special focus on the hottest technologies and products. Tier1 Research believes that the rise of green datacenters combined with virtualization heralds game-changing transformation that will enable European managed hosting providers to prosper as never before. At the same time, Tier1 will keep the focus on client requirements and ‘closing the deal’ with enterprise customers.
The 2008 Hosting Transformation Summit Europe will focus on these vital issues in a senior executive-level environment, with frank discussion. It will present a unique opportunity for industry leaders and their customers to interact one-on-one.
