The Independent Data Center Alliance (IND-DCA), an industry-led group of independent data center operators advancing the market presence of smaller operators, recently announced its media partnership with BroadGroup, a leading provider of data center, cloud, edge and global IT infrastructure analysis and intelligence and presenter of the Edge Global Congress 2019. With the Edge Global Congress taking place on November 6, 2019 in Austin, Texas, this partnership will help both parties enjoy added value, increased market visibility and augmented exposure in the lead up to the event. 

The Edge Global Congress 2019 will deliver a powerful agenda stacked with vital insights and presentations on emerging technologies and trends like IoT (the Internet of Things), 5G, AI (Artificial Intelligence), autonomous cars, smart cities, connected things and edge and micro-data centers. The event will bring together industry leaders, innovators, solutions providers, location agencies, data center service firms and more to discuss the future of IT and telecom and promote international networking opportunities. In addition to the main conference on November 6, the event will begin with EdgeCon, an exclusive pre-event taking place on November 5. 

The IND-DCA brings together global data center operators to promote the collective’s combined services and showcase the assets and capabilities of smaller data center companies throughout the market. With the data center industry growing more competitive as data demands rise, independent operators are finding it harder to compete against larger operators and REITS to gain market share and reach new customers. To help bridge the gap, the alliance provides access to valuable resources and effectively displays the members’ global reach, proximity and accessibility to data center customers.

“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, 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.”
