  • Presented by Rachel A. Dines


What comes next if you are running low on data center capacity, your facilities are aging, and you can't support the latest IT infrastructure? IT professionals have an ever-expanding set of options. You could build a new facility, retrofit your current facility, or contract with colocation, outsourcing, or the cloud service providers. But which option makes the most economic sense for you and your data center? This session evaluates the factors to consider using Forrester's Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) methodology. This session helps attendees make the right decision and justify their investment by:

  • Evaluating the pros and cons of different facility procurement models.
  • Understanding the necessary tools for building their own TEI model for data center facilities.
  • Exploring the hidden costs of data center operations.
