Firstly, the concept of a ‘Dark NOC’ [Network Operations Centre] is gaining traction. This reflects a shift towards fully automated, AI-driven network management systems that promise enhanced network quality and support for engineers, all while modernizing infrastructures.

Secondly, there’s a growing emphasis on sustainable energy sources for data centres. Tighter regulations and a collective push for sustainability are prompting businesses to seek innovative energy solutions, marking a significant shift in how data centre infrastructures are powered.

Thirdly, while artificial intelligence [AI] continues to revolutionize customer experience [CX], the value of human skills remains irreplaceable. The integration of AI in customer service underscores the need for a human touch, highlighting the importance of balancing technology with human insight and empathy.

Lastly, the role of data centres as pillars of digital and technological infrastructure is becoming increasingly crucial, especially in Africa. With the continent experiencing a digital boom, the demand for reliable data services is soaring, underscoring the need for robust data centre infrastructure to support this growth.
