Sustainability in Practice

An Omdia Analyst Summit

The 2023 Omdia Analyst Summit took place Monday, May 8, 2023. Stay tuned for 2024 summit information.

Analyst Advice on Data Center Innovation and Sustainability

The hot topic in the data center industry is sustainability but we rarely find ourselves on the same page when discussing activities and priorities. Between buzz words, marketing messages and green washing, it can be difficult to prioritise actions and navigate the course to truly sustainable data center operations.

Omdia’s Cloud and Data Center Research Practice is back for its second annual Analyst Summit, presenting a third party, vendor-agnostic perspective on industry and technology trends. During the 2023 event, expect to see the team’s latest technical observations and market forecasts, and a deep dive into sustainability practices. The discussion will go beyond from-the-grid access to renewable energy and efficient equipment, delving into new technologies and services that can be exploited by data center operators who want to decrease their carbon footprint. 

Industry behemoths like Google, Microsoft and IBM rely on Omdia for a data-driven, technical perspective to connect the dots and stay ahead of the curve. The Analyst Summit will feature exclusive Omdia research and data on topics including:

  • The relationship between efficiency and sustainability
  • Powering data centers using microgrids and energy-as-a-service
  • Reducing energy consumption through IT, Infrastructure and Software
  • Trend in equipment reuse and the circular economy

Like last year, expect insights into disruptive start-ups, new technologies and investment strategies from around the industry, without the marketing buzz. Additional topics include:

  • IT-side discussion (low power computing)
  • Infrastructure-side (liquid cooling)
  • Software-side (lightening the load)

At the Omdia Analyst Summit, you can expect:

  • An opportunity to network with the analyst team over lunch
  • Exclusive research content normally accessible to a limited audience
  • Access to the 2023 Omdia “Trends to Watch” report ($2,999 value)
