    The 13th of a techUK series of webinars discussing the world in the aftermath of COVID-19

COVID-19 presented data centre operators with a number of challenges: demand for services and capacity increased significantly whilst restrictions on movement threatened to disrupt supply chains and access.  Urgent negotiations with Government resulted in the immediate establishment of a dedicated team within DCMS who rapidly obtained key worker status, protection for construction projects and quarantine exemptions for the sector.

This marked a seismic change in the sector’s relationship with government, but what does this really mean? What did we learn, collectively, from COVID-19?  What policy changes will be needed to protect the sector’s resilience and competitiveness in future and how are these likely to be implemented? What are the implications for operators, the supply chain that supports them and the customers who depend on them?


This is the 13th of a techUK series of webinars discussing the world in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.
