Technology Experience Lab: Where new ideas in technology become reality
In today's business environment, organizations need to move quickly and remain committed to their projects in order to remain competitive in the long-term. Technology is a strong ally in this respect and helps to create opportunities to further digitize platforms, streamline processes and transform business. A digital strategy is a large component of your overall business strategy and to stay relevant and viable, you need to continuously innovate and constantly evolve. Many organziations realize the benefits of leveraging technology to gain more efficiency, reduce costs or develop game-changing products and services. However, the path to achieve these goals can be challenging, especially for large scale projects. How much will it cost? Do we know if it will work? Where do we find the expertise? How do we move the project out of the idea phase?
The Technology Experience Lab, part of the Global Data Centers division and operating out of several of our data centers, is where ideas can indeed become reality. We offer a large and collaborative partner network where technology providers, business partners, and end-users come together to discuss ideas and join projects. Our community is made up of large and well-recognized companies, as well as start-ups with cutting-edge and disruptive technologies. Organizations can then test their new solutions in a Proof-of-Concept (PoC) but real-world environment, while mitigating risk and the outlay of expensive resources. The "Try-Before-You-Buy" concept makes for an attractive option for many organizations. We have seven labs currently operating in several cities in Europe and Asia and we have exciting plans to expand to our other regions.
- A robust and experienced partner ecosystem allows for the testing and validation of a wide range of technologies such as Cloud, Blockchain, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Enterprise Applications and more
- A wide range of pre-installed use cases for immediate operation are currently available. Custom PoCs can also be designed
- Knowledge community: Share information via a regular series of webcasts, host and join bootcamps, meetups and hackathons
Organizations know all too well that delays and uncertainty can stifle innovation before it even becomes an opportunity. The Technology Experience Lab can help guide you towards a path of testing, validating, and launching successful projects quickly and with minimum risk.
