The Middle East and North Africa’s (Mena) data centre spend will reach a record-high of nearly $5 billion in 2019, industry experts said, as organisations drive data centre modernisation as the foundation of their digital transformation.
Organisations are modernising data centre infrastructure to optimise costs, increase agility, foster innovation, and operate more efficiently, argues the UAE-based IT infrastructure and information management consultancy and solutions provider Condo Protego.
“As Middle East and North Africa data center spend reaches record highs, CEOs recognise that data centres have moved from a cost centre to a profit centre,” said Savitha Bhaskar, COO, Condo Protego. “Modernising data centre infrastructure is a top priority in 2019 for organisations to store, secure, and analyse more data than ever before, deliver new digital business models, and scale up as businesses grow.”
Condo Protego has worked closely on the data centre modernisation strategies and implementations for a wide range of Middle East public and private organisations.
