DALLAS – March 15, 2021 – Compass Datacenters’ new Horizons video series brings together experts from a variety of fields to discuss how our lives will be impacted by internet-based technology in a post-COVID world. Featuring guests drawn from the worlds of business, science, IT, academia and the media, each episode will discuss how emerging trends will have dramatic impacts on the way we work, communicate and entertain ourselves.

“The COVID-19 pandemic is, to-date, the defining event of the 21st century and has dramatically increased our reliance on technology,” said Raymond Hawkins, Chief Revenue Officer of Compass Datacenters. “Everyone agrees the exponential increases in information will drive greater data center demand, but Horizons looks beyond technology and brings together thought leaders across a number of disciplines to examine the long-lasting societal, economic and regulatory changes coming in the years ahead.”
