MainOne’s new subsidiary MDX-I, has called on the major companies in the country to leverage outsourced Data Center services to drive down costs and optimize operational efficiency.
In view of this, MDX-I and its parent company, MainOne organized a breakfast seminar targeted at senior level IT managers to discuss strategies for companies that require improved Data Center capacity. This session revealed valuable global insights from leading IT research company, the International Data Corporation (IDC), and global Cloud specialist, EMC2 Corporation, in addition to specialists from MainOne.
Speaking at the seminar, MainOne’s Head of Marketing, Jumoke Akande said that the recent macro-economic issues in the country and fluctuating global oil prices necessitated the need for companies to use the session to explore how they can utilize Cloud and other Data Center hosted-business applications to enhanced productivity at reasonable costs.
With leading data experts from IDC and EMC2 Corporation as speakers, the session shed light on global trends in Data Centers, planning issues to consider, and the case for businesses to colocate in commercial data centers which offer extraordinary levels of performance, as against building in-house data center facilities from ground up.
Ms. Akande stressed that high level of attendance at the seminar, themed “Making the Business Case for Data Center Migration”, revealed the enlightened perspectives that IT managers in Nigeria are adopting to withstand economic pressures and reduce costs.
