The existing trusted relationship Foundry has with this audience allows for the collection of insights developed through first-party data around behavioural, intent and declared demographic information.

Asia/Pacific is one of the most agile developing data centre regions in the world according to IDC. The growing importance of smart technologies, IoT-powered devices, Big Data, Industry 4.0, 5G and Cloud Computing has led to data centres taking on a more prominent role in businesses in recent times in the region, according to Avneesh Saxena, group vice president, domain research at IDC Asia/Pacific. Factors driving the growth of the APAC data centre market are largely related to modernisation and expansion of data centre footprint by enterprises and service providers.

“Beyond informing the 2 million tech buyers in this market, we are excited to open new channels for tech marketers to connect with this influential audience to help them enhance their business.” continued Huegel.
