For this edition Datacloud spoke to Tommy Nalley, Senior Directory, Critical Infrastructure Solutions at CPG.
Datacloud: What do you see as the future drivers for the industry?
IoT and Big Data growth are not slowing down, and to support that, the Cloud, in all of its delivery formats, will continue to grow. There’s no way around that. We just need to deliver more secure, more flexible solutions that not only meet demand, but anticipate how that demand may shift or change. Additionally, client demand for increased security combined with a desire for 24x7 access will drive significant growth for solutions like CPG’s SmartTec.
Datacloud: What regions within Europe do you see as primed for IT asset expansion?
Switzerland. The ongoing growth in that market, combined with the tax incentives they offer makes them a prime location for IT asset investment.
Datacloud: What is one of your goals for the next year and how do you expect to achieve it?
CPG is looking to expand our business into Europe over the next 12 months and we have formed a strategic partnership with Hub Consulting Europe to help us realize this goal.
Datacloud: How can our sector help to improve society?
Ultimately, what we do impacts almost every area of our society in some way. So, for our sector to improve society through this connection, it is critical that we do 3 things:
Focus on innovations that benefit both customers and end-users. This is where products like our SmartTec come into play. Simplicity, security and ease of use are built into the portal design – this enhances the value this solution offers to everyone involved.
Keep the data secure. IoT and Big Data Analytics, and in turn Cloud solutions, are being used to improve safety, make medical advances, ensure people feel connected and both simplify and enhance everyday life. We owe it to them to do all of this AND ensure their information is secure.
Keep an eye toward the future. Anticipate what society will need next and start designing it now so it’s ready before it’s needed.
Tommy Nalley will be at the Datacloud Europe 2018 congress in Monaco June 12-14th. To learn more about SmartTec and CPG’s capabilities, visit him at Booth #40.
