The engine of the digital economy

As IoT, Smart Cities, Big Data and Cloud drive the IT industry into new unchartered territories DCD at CeBIT helps IT professionals make the right infrastructure decisions to support all of this.

Data centers are the mission critical infrastructure that underpins all of these new platforms, and whilst these platforms are getting easier to provision and manage, the infrastructure layer is getting more complex.

Driving performance and efficiency with mission-critical ICT infrastructure is a major challenge. It requires multi-skilled professionals, who need to understand ‘the data center’ from an organisation’s many viewpoints and who are adept at cross-discipline collaboration in order to drive effective results.

DCD at CeBIT brings together the entire IT stack, tackling issues faced by professionals with blended or hybrid infrastructures and the technical challenges of tomorrow’s hyperconverged world.


Exhibition Program

We are evolving the expo floor to encompass all elements of the IT stack to include not only infrastructure, but also the network, storage and server hardware, software and operating systems needed to build the new software defined world.
