CEDaCI Data Centre Sector Specific Surveys

CEDaCI is bringing together the Data Centre Industry representatives which normally do not converse. Data Centre Industry Representatives gather together in CEDaCI Working Group Meetings and Co-Creation Workshops to help us develop the circularity solutions in line with the needs of the industry.

However, our sessions are limited to a certain number of representatives in each CEDaCI Country. Therefore, we will develop a series of surveys to collect the views of the industry on specific topics.

CEDaCI Refurbishment Survey

CEDaCI refurbishment survey is seeking to receive the inputs from companies using the IT hardware and understand the reasons for upgrading. This survey aims to learn your challenges, how often you upgrade and why, and whether you use refurbished equipment. Click here for the survey
