The IDC Technology Spotlight, sponsored by Equinix, provides an overview of the current economic and digital challenges that Irish enterprises face. It investigates how leading organizations are embracing hybrid and multicloud strategies to build business resilience and accelerate digital transformation. Learn how the digital data center is crucial in building a “future-proof” digital enterprise. See how this will evolve into a more distributed and fluid digital infrastructure layer that interconnects digital platforms and ecosystems to enable digital innovation.


  • The public cloud services market in Ireland will be worth $1.2 billion by 2024
  • The ability to generate digital revenues depends largely on the resilience, flexibility and scalability of an organization’s infrastructure
  • Security is the number one cause of failure of public cloud deployments for one in four European organizations
Companies will increasingly shift to usage-based IT services, with colocation becoming a popular requirement for those looking to optimize their IT estate to save money. In a similar vein, access to consumption-based, dedicated hardware will also become more common through bare metal offerings, something Equinix is seeking to make increasingly available in new markets.
