KAO Data sponsor 2016 DatacentreDynamics Award

  |   Kao Technology

KAO Data are proud sponsors of the 2016 DatacentreDynamics Young Mission Critical Engineer of the Year Award.

 

Supporting the next generation of future leaders within the data centre industry KAO Data are proud to sponsor the young Mission Critical Engineer of the Year Award.

The future of any industry depends on the quality of the young people it can attract. The data centre industry is no different and the historically low profile of the data centre as a career choice combined with increasing management and operational complexity and local shortages of suitably qualified staff places a premium on attracting new blood into the industry. New technologies and new platforms require new skills, so this year we are opening up this category to the whole mission critical “stack”, to include not only M&E but also systems, architecture and software professionals.

This Award will be presented to the individual that shows a track record of achievement in project leadership and delivery and a higher profile in our industry than their tender years would suggest.

Congratulations and good luck to all of the finalists: Andrew Higgins, Arup (UK); Viktor Arnetz, CBRE Data Center Solutions (Sweden); Paul Harrison, Future Facilities (UK); Tom Blundy, Keysource (UK).
