Disruptive Innovation: Innovating Beyond Technology

April 11, 2022
Truly game changing data centers recognize that innovation must be a holistic process and look beyond technology to every other aspect of the business. DCF’s Rich Miller and Aligned’s Andrew Schapp and Eric Jacobs will discuss disruptive data center innovation during an April 19 webinar.

Innovation is one of the biggest buzzwords in the data center industry. New and challenging customer demands for higher densities, faster speeds, and the ability to quickly scale operations require data center builders and operators to innovate. The drive towards sustainability demands data center innovate. The very nature of a quickly evolving data center landscape necessitates innovation.

And so data centers innovate, focusing their efforts primarily on the technology needed to meet those demands for density and speed. But truly game changing data centers recognize that innovation must be a holistic process – it must are look beyond technology to every other aspect of the business. For a data center to keep pace with today’s ever changing market, disruptive innovation must happen across the entire organization.
