Join us as the results of the highly anticipated State of the Data Center survey are revealed!

Each year, Data Center World and AFCOM publish the highly anticipated results of the annual State of the Data Center survey to offer the industry a revealing perspective about trends and transformations that impact data center professionals and their businesses. The report provides valuable guidance on technology advancements, workforce trends, design and management challenges, and energy efficiency best practices to help data center managers make smarter decisions about their enterprise strategies.

This year’s report, the results of which will be unveiled during a virtual event on May 13, includes a new focus on talent and workforce challenges and best practices, as well as an increased emphasis on the impact of automation on data center management. The report will also provide a full year’s update on the changes brought about by the rapid shift to working from home, and the resulting security concerns for the data center.

As part of this virtual event, Data Center World contributing editor Bill Kleyman will provide the results of the survey in his annual report to the industry, and then distinguished members of the Data Center Institute will parse the information and provide their unique perspective on what the results mean to the industry from a variety of angles that include environmental issues; risk management; cloud and edge computing strategies; and facilities and operations best practices.

  • How to plan for unexpected and rapid changes coming to the data center
  • Ways to reallocate budget toward emerging technologies to stay ahead of competitors
  • What the true impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on data center management and risk
