Risk and Reward for Investors in Data Centre, Cloud and Edge Businesses

Grimaldi Forum Monaco, 5 June 2019

2018 witnessed a record level of investment in the data centre sector, with optimism fuelled by the digital transformation of organizations globally, the rising influence of Industry 4.0 and the diffusion of the Internet of Things (IoT).

With business models ranging from pure wholesale space to value add managed services, managed security, on top of capacity, power, and cooling the market has expanded to Hyperscale facilities, and now Edge represents a potentially huge market opportunity.

Allied to these trends, the emergence of a new range of technologies such as AI, IoT, blockchain, 5G, robotics and more presents different sets of risks and rewards.

To evaluate these new opportunities for investors, Data Economy will hold a one-day special summit in Monaco, during the Datacloud Global Congress attended by more than 2k delegates.
