As I read the results of our recent Data Center 2025 industry survey, one finding was of particular interest to this longtime HR professional. According to the survey, 16% of all participants expect to retire by 2025. That number is notable on its own, but in the U.S., it jumps to 33%. That means one-third of all data center personnel could be leaving the workforce in the next six years – a massive loss of talent and institutional knowledge that would be difficult to manage under ideal circumstances.
Like anything technology-related back then, data centers were massive and inefficient and provided roughly the same IT power a modern calculator would consume today. In that time, they’ve evolved in much the same way most technology has – more power, more compact and unrecognizable levels of efficiency. Despite the incredible changes we’ve already seen in this space, the biggest data center revolution may lie ahead and be realized in the next five years.
When we decided to do a mid-point update on the 2014 Data Center 2025 report we released five years ago, I had one piece of advice for our team: Don’t turn this into a report card. It’s not about grading the accuracy of those predictions. It’s about doing our best to help everyone better understand what’s around the corner. This industry moves far too fast to expect a 10-year forecast to anticipate every inevitable twist and turn. That said, the experts hit the target more than they missed with their 2014 forecast.
