The answer is "no.” End users & manufacturers must find new and creative ways to manage their builds and refreshes, as mission critical spaces continue to expand exponentially & increase in density. In this session, we will discuss the broken world of supply chain, review how it impacts the operations of our data centers, and possible ways to combat by thinking outside the box.
