Research shows there is more demand for data center resources and that power and power density continues to increase. The amount of power we're providing into the rack continues to grow with more use-cases around business demand. And, with more demands being put on data centers, as well as more data center builds including energizing components such as substations, the wire and cable requirements to power your data center are becoming more complex with limited resources available for installation.
A massive shift in the way we work has already been shaping up for years, but has drastically transformed since the start of the pandemic. Further to this, the move towards hybrid and remote working, coupled with a data explosion unlike anything the world has seen, highlights the need for both digital and cloud transformation and a rethinking of how organizations need to protect their most vital assets.
Consider this: 40% of workers in open plan offices report that they’re always or very often distracted. What’s more, nearly a third of all workers say they lose an hour or more of productivity each day to distractions.

Every stage of a network’s lifecycle, from planning, rollout, to maintenance and restoration, needs to be built on solid data from multiple dimensions. This includes data not only from the services providers but also from their engineering, construction, and equipment vendors. A “geospatial data model” of the core information is critical to the successful management of assets throughout the “life-of-the-network”. Therefore, all the parties involved in the network lifecycle management should collaborate to acquire and maintain physical network data to build workflows and adopt technology that enables speed and accuracy.
