London, 4 February 2010 - International consulting firm BroadGroup is to join an academy of top speakers at the forthcoming ICT Spring Europe, hosted by the government of Luxembourg and under the patronage of Mr Jeannot Krecké, Minister of Economy and Overseas Business, Luxembourg.
The ICT Spring Europe 2010, includes a conference, exhibition and interactive workshops, and takes place on March 15th & 16th, in the European Congress Center at Kirchberg.
More than 60 international speakers will feature at the event including Absolu Telecom, ArcelorMittal, Clearstream, Deutschland Online, eBay, HP / System Solutions, Microsoft, Paypal, Philips, RTL, SES Astra, TomTom, and many more.
Among the topics to be discussed is the critical role of data centres in sustaining competitive advantage for European ICT. Steve Wallage, managing director, BroadGroup Consulting, will address the challenges and opportunities for data centres and highlight the unique advantages offered by Luxembourg.
“Given the 15 year plus investment timeframe of a data centre, the risk facing CTOs are becoming ever broader – from power availability and cost, to technology innovation, to developments in data centre design and management, to environmental legislation, best practice and taxation,” commented Mr Wallage.
“Luxembourg has created an enviable position with excellent power and connectivity, attractive taxation and cost environment, and a secure and reliable location. It can also boast some world-leading facilities already in operation in the country.”
BroadGroup is also due to launch the third bi-annual edition of Data Centres Europe, which will provide the latest market forecast for data centres across 15 EU economies.
BroadGroup is an international consulting firm specializing in providing professional advice, creating knowledge platforms through publishing and events and connecting information communities.
