Mark Seymour Wins Data 50 Award

19 May, 2017

Last night Mark Seymour, CTO was named Best in Class Winner for Business Services and Consulting


The Data 50 Awards is the UK’s premier initiative for celebrating data leadership and excellence among the sector’s highest achievers. Organised by Information Age magazine, the Data 50 list is updated annually to recognise the top individuals and companies driving data innovation and business value in the enterprise, with ten ‘best in class’ winners. 

Mark was recognised from more than 300 nominations for his leading role in the development of The Green Grid's Performance Indicator (PI) metric which is used to assess and visualise data center efficiency, risk and cooling performance.  At its most advanced, PI provides a framework to assess the effects of changes before they are implemented, whether from IT deployments or the installation of infrastructure changes such as containment. This gives the business the ability to understand how safe any IT expansion will be, how to best utilise the design capacity or run through ‘what if’ scenarios to develop strategies for managing issues before they arise.
