The Cambridge and Oxford College IT Management Groups (CITMG) are pleased to announce the 11th College IT Conference (CITC) exclusively for the College Computing communities of Cambridge and Oxford University. The conference will follow the highly successful formula of the previous ten conferences, offering stand-out keynote presentations and a rich mix of technical seminars with round table discussions covering non-technical areas such as policy, strategy, communication and management.
The conference is a chance for College IT staff of the 70 Oxford and Cambridge colleges to mix with their colleagues, to discover their interests, the ways they work, their problems and solutions to managing IT in this unique environment. The 12th CIT Conference will be held at the National Space Centre on Friday 22nd March 2019.
Keynote: The data landscape of the future will be very different from the one we know today.
Grant Caley, NetApp’s UK & Ireland Chief Technologist, will discuss why we need to build a data fabric to underpin our hybrid cloud applications. This data fabric will layer over on-premise ultra low-latency storage technologies, servers with petabyte scale persistent memory and the public clouds of AWS, Azure, Google etc. Ultimately the data fabric will then bring Enterprise data management wherever applications and their data are deployed. With a dynamic data fabric Applications, deployed as microservices, will be fully portable and self-automated, to some extent becoming self-managing. Beyond this near future Grant will also provide an insight into some of the new technologies being even further researched.
Coach transport to and from Oxford or Cambridge is included. If you plan to make your own way there, the venue has plenty of parking onsite. As an attendee of the conference, you will be able to get a parking permit from staff to avoid paying the parking charge.
The evening dinner has been kindly sponsored by NetApp.
