The DCS Awards continue to go from strength to strength - testament to the data centre industry's continuing innovation and excellence at a time of significant global disruption. Sky high energy prices, ongoing sustainability challenges, supply chain issues, geopolitical instability - all having a significant impact on the data centre sector. And, as the saying goes: 'When the going gets tough, the tough get going'. The data centre industry has responded magnificently as it helps its customers on their digital transformation journeys, with a range of new ideas, services, products and technology ideas.
The DCS Awards 2023 will, once again, celebrate the data centre industry's impressive achievements, recognising customer success stories, technology innovation and both individual and company contributions to the sector. We've made a few changes to the awards categories to reflect industry changes (we're particularly pleased to have added the Rising Star award, as well as Best Company to Work for awards), but what we haven't changed is the successful formula that sees several hundred nominations, which are then turned into a short list for voting, and culminate in a great evening in London, where the winners are acclaimed and the industry gets together for a great night of eating, drinking, comedy and celebrating.
So, it's time to plan your nominations
As ever, we're looking to recognise and congratulate data centre industry innovation - whether it be projects, products, services or corporate or individual excellence. The Awards' categories cover both the facilities and IT aspects of the data centre, reflecting the gradual convergence of the two disciplines as a prerequisite for digital transformation. The achievements of vendors, their business partners, staff and customers are the focus of the 30 Awards categories.
