Of events and strategies
Come October and the community of CIOs/CTOs and IT Heads in India will witness
Asia's largest ever IT conference hosted for the Indian enterprise user communityTechnology
Senate 2004. It'll feature a series of focussed seminars that deal with enterprise
IT management issues and solutions.
Network Magazine will fly down India's most successful CIOs to Colombo, Sri
Lanka, where they'll spend two days talking technology, management, and solutions
with the industry's most talented and finest professionals. And in their leisure
time, will enjoy fabulous cuisine, sights, and shopping sprees.
Since the CIO has always been number one for Network Magazine, this month's
cover story features strategies and solutions that will enable them to manage
their storage infrastructure better, and consequently sleep soundly at night.
Infrastructure Lifecycle Management (ILM) is a set of strategies, policies,
technologies, and solutions that CIOs can use to optimize their storage infrastructure.
The cover story articles talk about the benefits, practical approaches, user
views, and market opinions about ILM.
A firm believer in the benefits of ILM, Sagar Sule, President, Cyquator Technologies
Limited says, "ILM allows an organization to manage information in a manner
that is based on its changing value to the business over time. It means that
the organization can map the value of information and the resources to align
it to the goals of the business-all at the right time."
Elsewhere in the magazine, we feature the first-ever case study on an organization's
security auditing practices.
Since last month we've initiated a new section aptly named
'Hi-tech Hotshots', where we take you face to face with some of the India's
sterling CIOs; CIOs that run a well-planned IT strategy, bring in business value,
and excel at what they do. This month, we feature P Rambabu of Asian Paints
