Data Center Modernization
Project of the Year
The upgrade and retrofit of existing data centers has become more important as the world’s data center portfolio grows older and as the business requirements of IT have evolved. It can be more complex than a new build, as it entails keeping services running, and accommodating existing staff.
Judges will be looking for modernization projects which deliver the operational and business outcomes required, and which also demonstrate how modernization beat other options such as outsourcing or a new build in their particular case.
