Supporting this award is an obvious fit for EkkoSense. We’re 100% focused on helping operations teams across our industry to Monitor, Manage and Maximise their data centre performance. This category focuses on Data Center Managers who are able to think quickly, apply ingenuity, and resolve difficult operational challenges, something we do every day with our customers.

Supporting this award brings EkkoSense and the capabilities of our EkkoSoft Critical SaaS-powered software to an even wider audience. And with our ability to help DC managers unlock significant energy savings, release further capacity and ensure ongoing ASHRAE standards compliance, we’re ideally placed to help DC managers perform even better in 2019.


Data Center Manager of the Year


Day-to-day, the data center manager's job is about transformation. Staff levels and skills are changing, new services are on offer, and the hardware and software in the facility will be different from one year to the next. But the demands on the data center manager are the same. Prevent failure by great planning, react superbly to the unexpected, communicate the facts and take the right actions. And make sure your team can cover when you are not there.

The judges will be looking for exceptional success stories. Did they triumph in an abnormal or unlikely situation? Did their quick thinking prevent a catastrophic failure? Did their ingenuity solve a tricky problem? Has their leadership created a stronger team or a better workplace?
