“How to Plan, Justify, and Manage a Major Data Center Project” is scheduled for Oct. 30-31 in Dallas. This interactive seminar delves into the most successful approaches for getting a new data center project off to an optimal start. The seminar stresses the importance of understanding how to develop the right requirements, get the necessary sponsors, and have the right schedule and budget to ensure the data center is able to functionally respond to an organization's evolving business requirements and avoid premature obsolescence.
“How to Apply Tier Performance Standards to Improve Data Center Availability” is planned for Seattle on Sept. 9-10 and Gaithersburg, Md., on Nov. 13-14. Led by the creators of the Tier Performance Standards model and the authors of the Tier Classifications Define Site Infrastructure Performance white paper, this seminar will provide attendees with firsthand knowledge on the relationship between topology and availability.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
