To guide the conversation and provide a starting point for input, Emerson established potential scenarios for the future of computing. They reflect potential directions the industry could go based on evolution of existing technologies and emergence of disruptive technologies. Over the next four months, Emerson will ask the industry to predict how those scenarios might impact various aspects of the data center—and how, in turn, the data center might evolve to support those models.
“What kind of converged technologies will be available, and how will they change the data center model?” Hassell asked. “Where will these facilities be located? How will they be powered and managed? What skill sets will data center and IT personnel need to possess? These are just a few of the questions we want to offer for discussion, and we are genuinely excited to engage in those conversations.”
Data center and IT professionals are encouraged to participate. They can learn more about the potential 2025 scenarios, comment, and complete the survey at http://www.EmersonNetworkPower.com/DataCenter2025, or email thoughts or questions to DataCenter2025(at)Emerson(dot)com.
