Our 13th Data Center Executive Roundtable showcases the insights of thought leaders on the state of the data center industry, and where it is headed. In our Fourth Quarter 2018 roundtable, we examine four topics: the top trends for the industry in 2019, the challenges in staffing and talent acquisition for data centers, which geographic markets we should be watching in 2019, and the state of IT security and the role of the data center.
