IN PICTURES: Westcon Imagine 2014, Sydney (+64 photos)

The second leg of Westcon Imagine 2014 landed in Sydney at the Hilton Hotel. More than 450 attendees heard from a broad range of speakers including Westcon MD A/NZ, Dave Rosenberg, and Asia-Pacific (APAC) services and Cloud solutions director, Darryl Grauman. Famed pilot, Richard de Crespigny, detailed how the collaborative efforts of pilots, air hosts, and air traffic control led to the effective risk assessment which resulted in the safe landing of an Airbus A380 (Qantas Flight QF32) after it suffered uncontained (and at the time, unexplained) engine failure after leaving Singapore Changi Airport. There were also panel discussions on Data Privacy in 2014 and Making Cloud Profitable.Photos by IAN SHARP.
