TechFire: How free is free cooling?
The Gibson Hotel, Dublin
A lot has been said about Ireland’s climate being perfect for free cooling of data centres, with all the savings in cooling costs that brings, as well as being kinder to the environment.
But is this true? How hard is it to achieve real free cooling? What are the inhibitors, and is it really suitable for all?
With major developments in recent years regarding safe operating temperatures in data centres, the need for cooling the air coming into data centres has arguably been significantly reduced. In light of this, can chillers simply be turned off, effectively achieving the same thing?
TechFire, in association with Schneider Electric, will examine data centre cooling and power management in Ireland, to see where real savings and efficiencies can be achieved, asking where and how free cooling can be employed, and if it isn’t right for you, exploring the practical alternatives. The morning session will cover the various cooling architectures and contributory factors to improve cooling efficiency.

IVI Autumn 2015 Summit
Carton House, Kildare
Do you have 21st century technology but a 20th century corporate structure? Are you equipped to attract, develop and retain digital talent? Do you know what it takes to lead in an era of digital transformation?
According to the Harvey Nash 2015 CIO Survey, digital innovation is dominating the agenda of technology leaders, but many companies are struggling to manage it. The pace of digital and the race to innovate has left many organisations lacking an enterprise-wide digital strategy and desperately seeking to acquire the right skills and talent.
This Autumn’s IVI (Innovation Value Institute) Summit focuses on the key priority of developing IT management skills and organisational capabilities for today’s digital organisations. The most important component to optimising a company’s capability in leveraging its technology investments is its people. Skills and talent are in short supply as mobile, social and analytical tools permeate the length and breadth of every function across the organisation. Missing digital skills are a key hurdle to digital business transformation.
The 2015 Summit will hear best practice from top companies including the many natioanl and international organisations the IVI has worked with in researching and delivering increased capability to expand and develop this priority area. The IVI will also launch a major research finding at the conference on the relationship between increased capability in managing technology and the level and type of skills that are needed by the organisation.
Key Agenda Topics Include:
•Connected, Inclusive & Creative: Towards Ireland’s Digital Future delivered by Ireland’s Digital Champion, Lord David Puttnam
•Finding & building the talent to get there – hiring, integrating, nurturing & developing talent in leading the drive to digital
•New thinking & approaches to talent management
•The European perspective: E-skills Manifesto: Joining forces & working together
•Case Study: IVI IT Capability Management Framework for success in talent management
•The digital talent challenge: How disruptive digital technologies are creating new working environments & demanding new skills forcing companies to adjust and innovate. What talent challenges do organisations face as they adopt technology-driven business models?
•Diversity and why it matters
•Digital transformation through e-Leadership: Perspectives of the CIO
•The 3 killer capabilities that define successful digital leadership
•Where will the digital leaders come from? How can a business be confident it has the right talent & leadership models in place to deliver its future strategy?
Who Should Attend?
This international conference is aimed at all business and IT professionals involved in technology, innovation, HR and skills management.
The IVI annual Autumn Summit attracts senior corporate and IT decision-makers in Ireland and internationally. Speakers provide thought-leadership insights into the frameworks, tools and best practices for managing IT value and IT-enabled innovation.

National eHealth Summit
Carton House, Co Kildare
Our healthcare system is one of the most technology dependent parts of our economy and yet, one of the most primitive.
It is over 18 months since the publication of the National eHealth Strategy. But, while the framework may now be in place, changing organisational culture and the habits of a lifetime can be a long and laborious task. So, what has been the reaction and progress on the ground? Do our health professionals still very much rely on the old pen and clipboard or are they successfully and efficiently moving into the digital age?
The inaugural National eHealth Summit in 2014 focused on the framework, but this year, we focus on adoption i.e. are the key stakeholders buying in to the National eHealth Strategy and moving away from paper based to technology based solutions? And, if not, why not? And, if not, how can we convince them of the merits of making the transition?
The 2014 Inaugural National eHealth Summit provided a unique forum that brought together the main stakeholders of the ehealth ecosystem to discuss and debate the critical issues in making Ireland’s National eHealth Strategy a reality. Enthusiastically received by the industry, feedback was overwhelmingly positive. And as organisers, iQuest and The Sunday Business Post, wish to grow and develop the summit this year to provide attendees with a fully comprehensive, educational and enriching conference experience.
2014 Attendees included delegates from:
Department of Health, The Beacon Hospital, Health Service Executive, Servisource Healthcare, Performation Ireland & UK, Rotunda Hospital, Trinity College Dublin, Kefron, VHI Healthcare, Cerner Ireland, Temple St. Children’s University Hospital, Oracle, AIB Corporate Banking, Barrington’s Hospital, Uniphar Group, Abbey Healthcare, i360 Medical, Age Friendly Ireland, National Epilepsy Programme, Wincanton Records Management, Accenture, Deloitte & Touche, GlaxoSmithKline, Bon Secours Health System, Grant Thornton, Medray Imaging Systems, Northgate Public Services, McKesson, National Disability Authority, Business Information Systems, Enterprise Ireland, National Ambulance Service, NUIG, Ace Health, Health & Social Care Board Northern Ireland, Gartner, Irish Blood Transfusion Service, McLernon Computers, Mater Private Hospital, Janssen, Microsoft Ireland, Bearing Point, AssessPatients.com, Irish College of General Practitioners, Kainos, TEKenable, Helix Heal th and Boehringer Ingelheim Ireland……..
If you work in health IT or have a close interest in the use of information in healthcare, eHealth 2015 is a must-go event for you. In addition, we also expect to see healthcare leaders, managers and clinicians involved in the design and delivery of services and those involved in the specification, procurement, management and front line use of information systems such as:
• Directors and heads of IT and ICT
• Information security directors
• Heads of information governance
• Chief Information Officers (CIOs)
• Healthcare managers
• Data centre managers
• Hospital managers & CEOs
• Finance directors
• Clinical & medical directors
• eHealth & telehealth care project managers
• Private healthcare sector
• Health policy makers
• Those with an interest in healthcare interoperability
As healthcare is about to enter the digital era, join your peers for a day of stimulating insights, ideas and analysis on how technology is changing healthcare and applying its uses for the enhancement of service delivery and patient care.

.Next Computing Forum 2015
Light House Cinema, Dublin
This full day conference will cut through the hype and explain how the current wave of disruptive data centre technologies will affect future IT plans and will provide a unique opportunity to get to grips with:
- Creating a Next Generation Data Centre for the Real World: Data centres have become too complex caused in part by the clash between emerging technologies and legacy architectures. New technologies promise to simplify IT but are they right for you and where do you start? What will your Data Centre Look Like In 5 Year’s Time? Will it be Software Defined, Web Scale, Hyper-Converged, Flash Optimised and how can ordinary businesses benefit from these new technologies?
- Serving the Next Generation Workforce: The era of digital business is radically changing how and where users work. IT must develop a ‘workplace of the future’ strategy that enables individual user work styles while still meeting business goals. What technologies are relevant to your organisation and what is a practical roll-out strategy for your workforce?
The conference will bring together a number of international independent speakers, industry experts, as well as visionaries from our leading vendor sponsors to include Citrix Systems, Nutanix and Arista Networks.
This free to attend conference will provide you with a unique opportunity to learn from the experts on the front-line, connect with your peers and hear practical experiences from real life customers.
