Boardroom Discussions - 2021 Industry Trends – Data Centers, Edge computing, Telecoms & Technology

At the fifth session of the fourth generation of the Boardroom Discussions: Digital Transformation from CEO Perspective program, the keynote speaker was Mr. Igor Grdić, Country Manager Central Eastern Europe, Vertiv.

The lifestyle shifts brought about by the global pandemic essentially established a new baseline for digital infrastructure, and investment in the IT ecosystem is expected to accelerate in order to enable more secure, reliable, and efficient remote work capabilities.

Understanding data center trends is essential for companies deciding how to most effectively manage the digital infrastructure on which their businesses rely. In fact, this reliance on data centers has only grown as digitalization accelerates, in large part, as a response to unprecedented, pandemic-driven changes in data generation and usage.

Most telecommunication service providers have been talking about the benefits of 5G for many years as the technology is expected to bring about unprecedented change for businesses and consumers.

The coming year will see greater focus on managing significant increase in energy consumption by exploring more efficient products and practices.

5G is one piece of a broader sustainability story. As the proliferation of data centres continues and even accelerates, especially in the hyperscale space, those cloud and colocation providers are facing increased scrutiny for their energy and water usage.

Four accelerating or emerging movements impacting the global digital ecosystem:

  • Digitalization on fast forward
  • Bringing large data center capabilities to small spaces and the edge
  • The 5G conversation turns to energy consumption and efficiency
  • Sustainability comes to the forefront
