August 5, 2009

Five Minute Briefing - Data Center: August 5, 2009. Published in conjunction with SHARE Inc., a bi-weekly report geared to the needs of data center professionals.

News Flashes

With the SHARE event in Denver coming up this month, 5 Minute Briefing caught up with Pam Taylor to talk about what attendees can expect in terms of hot topics and programs. As important as the online community is, Taylor observes that the in-person event provides unique opportunities for education and networking. "I think we have proof positive from just our experience as an organization that it's not ‘either/or.' It's 'both/and.' There are things you can conduct in a virtual online environment that are highly positive and extremely important and very helpful. But there's also that face-to-face engagement where you have the opportunity to take the conversation in real time in a way that it might not go if you're doing an online kind of exchange."
