Data Center 2025

An Omdia Research Forum

Monday, March 28, 2022  |  10:00AM - 4:00PM


The only certain thing about the data center industry is uncertainty. 

Any industry that is on the forefront of innovation is subject to disruption. In the case of the data center industry the combination of new technology development, microeconomic trends like acquisitions and mergers, and the nearly constant macroeconomic uncertainty of recent years, has made the task of planning, installing and operating data centers a survival of the fittest.

The Omdia team of industry veterans turned analysts will shine a light on the key trends and technologies data center operators should care about.

From applying AI to physical infrastructure, to risk management, open computing, the future of cloud and sustainability; we will double click on the points that matter most and highlight key disruptors.

Join the inaugural Omdia Research Forum at Data Center World for a day-long event within an event featuring expert data center and cloud analysts who will lead in-depth sessions covering key trends to watch in 2022 and beyond.

Featuring exclusive Omdia research and data, interactive sessions include:

  • The global data center network is changing. What are the largest operators investing in? What do end-users need?

  • What are the start-ups you should care about? Finding the unicorn amongst the horses and the decacorn amongst the unicorns. Your map and guide to data center start-ups.
