Learn What the Missing Link Is in Your Data Center From Wachovia and Tideway Systems at Next Generation Data Center Conference

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 08/06/07 -- Jim Houghton, Head of Utility Product Management for Wachovia's Corporate Investment Bank Technology Group, and Richard Muirhead, Chairman, CEO and Founder of Tideway Systems, will deliver a joint presentation at the inaugural Next Generation Data Center(TM) Conference & Expo (NGDC(TM)). The event, taking place August 6-9, 2007 at the Moscone Center, will focus on new technologies and their impact on the data center covering mission-critical applications and the technology supporting those applications. Houghton's and Muirhead's session, "Is Data the Missing Link?" will focus on the complexities created in the data center with IT becoming the largest part of capital spending and the critical role data plays. The session will be held on Tuesday, August 7 from 11:30 to 12:30 PM.

Jim has over 15 years' experience using and leveraging technologies that enable enterprises to solve business problems. At Wachovia, he is responsible for implementing and supporting the bank's dynamic Utility environment that provides the scalability, availability, and flexibility required to enable Wachovia's SOA strategy in an efficient manner.

"Wachovia has made a series of strategic investments in IT that have elevated its role beyond that of a mere support service to one that actually drives the business," said Jim Houghton, Head of Utility Product Management for Wachovia's Corporate Investment Bank Technology Group. "Doing so has reduced operational costs and delivered a host of business efficiency and environmental improvements, while providing a framework that is properly aligned with the business and can adapt to its changing needs."

For the last decade, Richard Muirhead has commercialized ways to make the management of advanced data centers effective, efficient and fun. He is a regular speaker at industry events, regularly quoted in the press, a member of the Cambridge Computer Lab Ring and the IEEE, and a participant in the IETF and TeleManagement Forum.

"There are significant gains in efficiency, productivity and ultimately profitability available to those companies that allow IT to play a more strategic role in the business," said Richard Muirhead, Chairman, CEO and Founder of Tideway Systems. "An added and equally important benefit is in the improvements in energy consumption and reduction in waste that can transform business' environmental impact and CO2 emissions."

NGDC focuses on new technologies and their impact on the data center, covering mission-critical applications and the technology supporting those applications including storage, servers, networking and communications. Targeted to many types of data center professionals, ranging from IT architects, to system administrators, to application and information administrators, NGDC will help IT Pros identify the right products and services to add to their end-to-end solutions as they adapt to ever-increasing needs for flexibility, scalability and performance with reduced risk and complexity.
