Critical Systems Expertise Valued at Conference
Waterman Middle East representatives including Greg Morgan (Managing Director), Kevin Millar (Senior Associate, Data Centre Design) and Keith Askey (Senior Associate, Mission Critical Operations) participated in the Inaugural Data Centre Dynamics conference held in Muscat, Oman.
The conference brings together personalities from across the mission critical business community in the Middle East and was particularly well supported by the government departments and regional business leaders. The opening address was presented by Dr. Salim Sultan Al Ruzaiqi, the CEO of the Oman Information Technology Authority (ITA).
Greg moderated the open panel discussion at the end of the conference with Kevin as one of the keynote speakers. The conference, one of a global series presented annually is seen as the industry benchmark conference. This is the first time Waterman has been asked to provide a keynote speaker for an event in the Middle East which is a major achievement for the company.
Kevin opened the event to a packed conference hall of 300 attendees with a presentation on Sustaining Operational Effectiveness that was very well received and considered by many to be the best submission on the day. It was so well received that the event team has asked Waterman to provide another keynote presentation for DCD in Dubai & Doha.
Mission Critical Operations are rightly seen as one of the key success drivers to our business in the region and Waterman is at the forefront of advancements in this field.
