State of the Data Center Industry Address

Coming Untethered: Trends Impacting Data Centers - Challenges and Opportunities

Breakout Session - Mitigating the Industry Shortage: Recruiting, Training & Retraining

The digital economy's appetite continues to drive explosive growth in the data center industry. The infrastructure supporting this growth needs to keep pace with demand and the rate of change. The double problem of the quantity and quality of people with the skills and ability to learn and adapt quickly is a significant barrier to the market forces driving the pace of growth and change. The complexity of the problem is multi-dimensional and any one area does not adequately provide a sustainable solution, so this panel will address the challenges of this labor shortage and how the industry is responding to close the gap.
