This summer, we all felt the uncomfortable effects of global warming as UK temperatures soared to over 40°C – the hottest on record.
With climate change on everyone’s mind, there’s a laser focus aimed on the digital infrastructure industry – a sector already infamous for its energy-guzzling credentials, with data centres reportedly accounting for around 1% of global electricity use.
But the world’s demand for, and consumption of, data and compute is only increasing. Some estimates say that by 2025, we could be generating more than 463 exabytes of data globally.
As the industry grapples with the post-pandemic impact on things like how we use and play with data, cybersecurity and connectivity – as well as an enduring skills shortage – the next few years are critical to get right.
So, what’s the state of play in the digital infrastructure sector – and how will we navigate an increasingly challenging and rapidly evolving landscape?
At this year’s inaugural Critical Insight, Ali Moinuddin, Chief Corporate Development Officer & Managing Director (Europe) at Uptime Institute, will be launching the two-day event with an overview of the data centre sector in 2022 and beyond.
Ali brings with him more than 20 years of experience in supporting high growth companies. Before joining the Uptime Institute, Ali served at Workshare as CMO.
In his previous roles, he has driven sales and marketing initiatives for high growth companies and served as CMO at SkyDox, Director of Marketing at Interxion (NYSE:INXN), Director of Marketing EMEA for SPL WorldGroup (now a part of Oracle (NYSE:ORCL), and Marketing Manager EMEA and Asia-Pacific at Kana (NASDAQ: KANA).
Tune in to his keynote session on day one of Critical Insight, 22-23 November, and don’t miss this vital sector analysis.
