But technology is becoming a driver that also -of course- push rapidly and strongly all the DC business/industry. Today we -O.C.Ds.- have to get a vision on the quality, amount, source, of the data that we are or will be handling in thos mission critical blds. that are called data centers.
The new challange -as new as tables and smartphones- is to give service to almost the same amount of worldwide population that is operating mobile gadget, taking trillions of photos, "googling" inquires, texting, emailing, sharing & networking the actual society communications.
But how -we-the "pros" will give the "rigth" answers to those investors and organizations that own the DCs? How to calculate the total energy consumptions or srrver/storage capacity or cooling needs for a industry that can reach billions of dollars just in construction investments the following three-five years around the world? Well I am asking also, and the few answers that I got are:
+ be prepare for SHIFT
+ study EVERY day
+ follow trend techies in business, storage, process, telecom IT equipment
+ keep inform in global business -your industry- trends All of this in a daily basis (Weekends also)
BIG DATA. Is here no one can avoid, but all of us will deal rigth now!
But what do you think?
