Supply chain issues continue to impact the data center industry and highlight the need for developers to align with major suppliers to develop tighter supply relationships than ever before. An effective, adaptive supply chain now delivers a competitive advantage in the provider marketplace.

In this BUILD Keynote presentation, Nancy Novak, Chief Information Officer at Compass Datacenters, and Phanney Brevard, Head of Strategy and Business at Schneider Electric, will discuss the next evolution in supply chain partnerships: on-site manufacturing partnerships.

Among the topics Nancy and Phanney will cover are the rationale behind their companies' decision to build a Schneider manufacturing facility on Compass' Red Oak campus, new ordering and delivery paradigms, and the strategic advantages delivered by a truly integrated supply chain.


Attendees will:

  • Be provided with an understanding of the current state of data center supply chains
  • Learn the new definition of an integrated supply chain
  • Gain an understanding of how actions like the Schneider Red Oak factory constitute the next evolution of supplier/provider relationships
