Colombia. The economic reactivation is a fact in different markets and Latin America is not far behind. Although inflation has impacted the markets, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) forecasts, for example, that in Colombia, this factor will return to a target range between 2% and 4% between 2023 and 2024, facilitating business growth.
That's why 2023 comes with business-focused technology trends. Given this growth, it is clear that organizations need to make an investment in technology that drives business and leads them to be at the forefront and deliver solutions focused on meeting the needs of their businesses to their users and customers.
"The first thing that organizations must keep in mind is that they must invest in solutions that contribute to the business, that drive them to automate processes and that make efficient use of energy and manage the data produced. With this, they will ensure that their processes are better and that the business is really using resources in the best way," explains Roberto Chavéz, SAM Business Development Transactional Manager at Schneider Electric.
For this, Schneider Electric, presents the five trends that will be imposed in this 2023 for companies.
1. Net - Zero
As disruptive technologies of the Internet of Things, IoT, generate a growing demand in Data Centers, it is necessary to establish and create solutions that reduce energy consumption and contribute to the environment, achieving Net Zero or Carbon Neutral. Therefore, solutions such as the Micro Datacenter C43U Series are ideal, since it does not require 24/7 cooling, as it has an energy-efficient cooling technology that automatically switches between three cooling modes: active, ecological and emergency, according to the real-time needs of the system for greater energy efficiency.
2. Data Centers of the Future: a sustainable alternative
Pointing to the United Nations Sustainability Goals, companies must invest in devices that allow storing the data generated, but making efficient use of the energy used. To achieve this complement, there are solutions such as the Micro Data Center EcoStruxure C Series 43U, which has intelligent cooling technology, which allows energy consumption to be much lower and efficient use of it. In addition, its size is ideal to have in small spaces.
3. Cloud Data Storage
According to IDC's study on predictions for 2023, cloud services are expected to grow 30% in Latin America, with a 30% growth rate for enterprise-focused services. This, anchored to Edge Computing, will allow latency to decrease and information to arrive in real time.
4. Industrial Edge
This technology has three key segments to automate processes and reduce the speed of response: Intelligent Hardware, Industrial Software and Industrial Edge Computing Services. These elements allow software management and technology implementation to be appropriated in enterprises. It includes artificial intelligence; networks, sensors and Data Centers that automate different processes, so that they can be implemented in different industries and allow the interoperability of their elements.
5. Artificial Intelligence for sustainability
Using Artificial Intelligence to manage, predict and optimize your energy consumption allows you to improve data-driven decision making, agility and decarbonization. It has never been more visible that resource efficiency and energy sobriety drive business profitability, all through leveraging data for operational efficiency, electrification and automation.
