List: C-Level briefing: Breaking down artificial barriers is just the first required step to address a shifting market, Arun Shenoy the new VP in charge of Schneider Electric’s UK IT Business warns that the industry must learn and mature fast.
1. Artificial barriers between IT and facilities
"Part of the challenge for the data centre industry over the last 20 years has been this big separation, which has been artificial in some ways, between the IT community and the facilities community."
2. Challenges posed by IOT
"Most new IOT devices will produce content, at which point the argument becomes that the small collection of hyper scale mega data centres is probably not the right way to meet the need."
3. Data centre at the edge
"We will see very large infrastructure deployments as the telcos modernise, and we will see the emergence of edge infrastructure."
4. Future paths
"I would like to know how my data centre is going to behave, over the lifetime of the asset, in whatever way I choose to use it. Is that a difficult thing to do? In many ways, no it is not."
