Ce cours est destiné les professionnels souhaitant devenir experts dans le domaine du Data Center. Il cible aussi bien les architectures d'infrastructure, concepteurs, consultants et auditeurs, que les responsables des moyens généraux, les managers IT, les chefs de projets et ingénieurs. Le DCES vient donner des arguments plus approfondis aux Spécialistes d'Infrastructure Data Centers (DCIS) ® par des connaissances fines et pointues qui assisteront les ingénieurs dans le choix du framework personnalisé à leur Data Center. Ce cours se veut également d'accroître la sensibilisation et permettra l'évaluation précise des investissements dans les Data Centers à travers la Value Engineering (VE), menant à une haute disponibilité, fiabilité, efficience, confiance, sécurité et l'optimisation des coûts.
