#2. The Networking

Industry thought leaders will be sharing the same space as you. The upcoming Summit offers you the chance to showcase your products and services, generate quality leads, and meet with business partners, and network with OCP customers, contributors, and executives. At the most recent summit, attendees came from the technology sector in addition to finance, government, and consulting. These attendees represented executive-level roles of vice president or higher as well as IT directors and managers.

#3. The Collaboration

Openly sharing ideas and collaborating with industry leaders is the key to maximizing innovation and reducing complexities in your environment. You’ll have many opportunities to discuss industry best practices and lessons learned that you can immediately leverage in your business.

#4. The Content

Your forward thinking peers are more than likely already booked. You wouldn’t want to miss an opportunity to join the conversation on the hottest topics in the industry. Topics such as Server Design, Storage, Networking, Open Rack, Hardware Management, and more will be discussed throughout this fact-filled conference. The event organizers have also added an Engineering Workshop on Monday, March 9! Register today for this year’s event.

#5. The Weather

According to the AccuWeather forecast for March 10th and 11th, average temperatures in San Jose, CA are around 60o F (15o C) during the day and 46 o F (8o C) at night. Sounds like a heat wave to those of us who live in the Northeast and who have been shoveling historic levels of snow!
