THE INDEPENDENT DATA CENTER ALLIANCE TO SERVE AS A MEDIA PARTNER FOR BROADGROUP’S UPCOMING EDGE GLOBAL CONGRESS 2019

NEW YORK CITY - October 29, 2019 -  The Independent Data Center Alliance (IND-DCA),an industry-led group of independent data center operators dedicated to advancing the market presence of smaller operators, announces its media partnership with BroadGroup, a leading provider of deep data center, cloud, edge and global IT infrastructure analysis and intelligence and presenter of the Edge Global Congress 2019. The partnership will deliver added value, increased visibility and augmented exposure throughout the market for both parties as the Edge Global Congress event, taking place on November 6, 2019 in Austin, Texas, draws near.

With a powerful agenda covering the convergence of new technologies and developments such as IoT (Internet of Things), 5G, AI (Artificial Intelligence), autonomous cars, smart cities, connected things, edge and micro-data centers, the Edge Global Congress delivers vital insights into the future of IT and telecommunications. Bringing together leading innovators, solutions providers, location agencies, power companies, infrastructure and connectivity leaders, data center service firms, cooling specialists, government agencies and more, the event creates an ideal environment for international networking with key industry innovators and insiders. In addition to the main conference on November 6, the event kicks off with EdgeCon, an exclusive pre-event, on November 5.

“We’re thrilled to expand our industry network with this strategic partnership, providing great value-added opportunities for BroadGroup and its industry-leading event,” comments Ilissa Miller, Co-Founder of the IND-DCA and CEO of iMiller Public Relations. “The mission of both the Edge Global Congress and BroadGroup aligns with the core goal of the IND-DCA — shaping the future of the data center and communications infrastructure sphere by delivering greater access to information and education, networking opportunities and vital insights. I look forward to seeing how the amplification of our respective key messages and value across a range of channels and platforms benefits the wider industry, opening up new avenues for exploration and discussion.”

As the data center sphere grows more competitive with the advent of emerging applications and 5G capabilities, smaller operators face an increasing struggle to compete with larger operators, gain market share and reach potential customers. To showcase the assets and capabilities of smaller data center operators throughout the industry, the IND-DCA brings together global data center operators, promoting the collective’s combined services, providing access to valuable resources and effectively displaying their global reach, proximity and accessibility to data center customers.
