Jakob Carnemark, senior vice president at Skanska USA, indicated that businesses operating data centres will need to go beyond traditional practices in order to build economically sound facilities.
“Data centre supply chains – like all supply chains – are collapsing around efficiency and speed to market,” said Carnemark, who leads Skanska’s Mission Critical Center of Excellence. “To take advantage, companies need to alter their approaches and move away from the traditional design-bid-build process. It doesn’t make sense to build dynamic computing platforms on top of traditional high-cost, inefficient infrastructure. New solutions can optimize IT and asset utilization by capturing a broad spectrum of information about data centre facilities and how they are being used.”
