Quickly assess site suitability, network connections, and labor markets

Selecting the right location for a data center requires deep understanding of vast amounts of data including network capabilities, workforce skills, government regulations, and environmental hazards. Visualizing variables from multiple domains on smart maps with advanced spatial analytics reveals connections that are hard to discern in spreadsheets. Use innovative geospatial technology to understand site-related data from global to hyperlocal scales. Ensure that data center expansion investments are in places that will support fast, reliable performance for customers.
