Logicalis Answers CIOs’ Managed Services Questions, Shows IT Pros How to Make Strategic Outsourcing Decisions

Who:  Logicalis (http://www.us.logicalis.com/), an international IT solutions and managed services provider with corporate headquarters based in Farmington Hills, Mich.

What:  Logicalis is hosting a series of “Fast Five” live video-streamed events designed to show IT professionals the top five secrets to a high-efficiency data center and how to get theirs running at peak performance. In these short, interactive events, IT professionals will hear what experts have to say, get peer perspectives from organizations like theirs, get a live look at real-life high-efficiency data centers, and then have a chance to ask questions via live chat.

The fifth in the series, “Managed Services, IT Automation and Modular Computing” is a 30-minute live event video-streamed by Logicalis from the IO data center facility in Edison, New Jersey.  The event will examine the benefits of managed services as well as the types of IT tasks that consistently prove advantageous to outsource.  In addition, it will examine how the ideas of “Data Center as a Service” and virtual private clouds can be met with a modular data center – locally, regionally or globally – that expands a company’s IT footprint, quickly adding capacity when and where it’s needed most while allowing the customer to retain control of the environment without the capital expense of building an on-site facility.

When: October 23rd, a 30-minute live video-streamed event from IO’s New Jersey data center, beginning at 11 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. MT / 1 p.m. CT / 2 p.m. ET.

How to Attend: Registration and other information about these exclusive events is available athttp://www.dcfast5.com/.

Quote:  “Outsourcing well-defined IT tasks – even the creation and operation of an entire data center –  can offer companies a distinct competitive advantage, both from a cost and labor perspective.  The key to a successful managed services strategy is knowing what to outsource, what to keep in house, and how to marry these two methods of conducting business to create a seamless exchange of effort with an outsourced team that acts and feels like an extension of your own.  Helping IT pros learn how to achieve the maximum impact for the dollars spent is what this event is all about.” – Mike Alley, director of Outsourcing Services for Logicalis
