Usually, companies are not very interested in IT and technology, unless it’s their way of making money. So what are they interested in? They’re interested in using and expanding their core competencies, making money in the process.

The EvoSwitch Green Fan: Helping businesses demonstrate corporate environmental responsibility to their stakeholders through ICT
We use the latest technology to reduce our energy use, from minimizing hot-spots to motion-sensor lighting, and do everything we can to make a significant, positive contribution to a climate-neutral environment. All these innovations together enable us to be a 100% carbon-neutral datacenter. But we’re not the only ones – many of our customers have the same sentiment, and as a result have begun to form a collective of like-minded organizations. These businesses are committed to corporate environmental responsibility and are working towards helping to reduce the 4.3 million tonnes of CO2 emissions that Europe generates each year. This is a huge figure and given that the IT industry accounts for 2% of global CO2 emissions – as much as global air traffic – it’s vital that we support our customers in working towards these targets.
This week saw some really exciting insights come out of the Gartner Data Center & IT Operations Summit. The buzzwords from the conference were: ITaaS, Management, Service Catalog, Convergence, Fabric, Efficiency, Agility, BigData, Virtual, Cloud and Next-Generation.
We, at EvoSwitch like to stay on top of the latest industry trends and what’s happening in the industry so we can make sure we take the key learnings and compare them to our own practices. So, what are the trends from this year’s conference?
