Jim Hart – The Impact of Covid on the Data Centre Industry

In the first episode of the Hot Topics series I speak with Jim Hart from Business Critical Solutions about the impact of Covid on the data centre industry.

First we look back to a report conducted by Business Critical Solutions (BCS) at the start of the pandemic – ‘New Normal, New Thinking’. We talk about what developers and service providers were thinking at this stage and how it was impacting on the growth plans of the sector.

We then look at the latest report released by BCS – ‘Covid, the lasting legacy’. We discuss how the pandemic has dramatically changed the landscape of the data centre industry and how it has resulted in a period of change and rapid growth. We also discuss how the industry has adapted and what lessons we have all learnt during the last 12 months.

This is a whistle stop review of the last 12 months in the data centre industry!
