Colliers APAC Occupier Services -  The reimagined workplace Q&A data centres

The increased adoption of cloud solutions, and how data centres play a part in disaster recovery and business continuity planning.

Following our insights from WORK3 on The Future of Work, we explore how the the greater use of technology in the workplace has shifted perspectives on disaster recovery, as a business enabler.

In this edition of The Reimagined Workplace Q&A series, we collaborate with Patrick McCreery, Global Head of Commercial and GM for Southeast Asia at Keppel Data Centres, to focus on disaster recovery - also known as business continuity planning - and discuss how the work 'place', 'space' and 'pace' are evolving within the data centres sector, as well as the opportunities for both occupiers and asset owners, going forward.

Q&A Highlights:

  • How has occupier demand for disaster recovery changed in the past 12 months?
  • How is cloud adoption transforming occupiers and why are operators following suit?
  • What are the long-term outlook for disaster recovery and demand, and the opportunities in this space?
  • How do data centres support business continuity planning and the disaster recovery business?
