About This Conference

Canada’s most anticipated conference of digital infrastructure transformation

Registration now open

Digital transformation is accelerating into the zettabyte era of the Internet-of-Everything, the connected Canada 4.0 economy. The mission-critical data center, telecom, and cloud infrastructure underpinning this rapid change is explored in depth here.

This event brings together senior-level business executives and technology and engineering professionals who are the decision-makers accountable for designing, building, managing and operating the full infrastructure ecosystem that makes business transformation possible.

From smart energy "in", to the software-defined network edge "out", the purpose-built, smart, efficient, connected, resilient and secure data center is ground-zero for digital transformation. This conference is designed to help those designing the digital future of their enterprises to tackle both the strategic and operational challenges posed by the relentless barrage of new, disruptive business drivers impacting the smart, digital factory of the future.

SMB CLOUD SUMMIT

The SMB Cloud Summit is designed for management that is looking to explore the business side of cloud – to ask questions, to understand barriers and benefits, to identify the keys to developing and executing on a cloud plan for their own organizations. Led by InsightaaS the SMB Cloud Summit melds a ‘roll up your sleeves’ approach to cloud strategy with extended opportunities to learn from and talk with Canadian cloud thought leaders and industry experts.

This by-application-only event follows key aspects of the U of T SCS curriculum, combining focused instruction, expert panels and small-group interaction with extended networking and Q&A opportunities. Attendees will be provided with Certificates of Completion, invitations to follow-on sessions (principally, the Connected Canada 4.0 event, held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre the following day), and will be given access to a library of cloud best practices and ongoing industry research to support the application of concepts discussed in the event to real-world business challenges.
