Today, data centers are the lifeline of any business and support a broad range of business objectives. Experts expect the data center construction market to grow at a 6.35% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2017 to 2021. In the first half of 2017, data center investment in the U.S. surpassed the $18 billion mark—more than double the amount spent during all of 2016, according to CBRE. This tremendous growth has sent facilities and construction manager juggling various priorities and struggling to find enough hours in a day. And then there’s the continuous challenged to save on OPEX and CAPEX, add efficiency, and at the same time avoid downtime; not all heroes wear capes, some are in-charge of Facilities Management and operations too.
In a recent e-book, AIIM presented survey results from facilities all over the world. The survey found that very few facilities, less than 15%, have their MOPs on mobile/cloud networks and readily available no matter how messed up the building. The survey also outlines a real opportunity for improvement in the management of facilities, operations, documents and information in general. MOPs and all procedures must be maintained accurately for maximum productivity, analytics, and responsiveness in times of crisis. Organizations maintaining multiple facilities need to standardize their operations and reduce operational costs.
Furthermore, even when there isn’t a crisis, facilities teams spend hours every day trying to find the information they need to do their jobs. In fact, 36% of respondents to the survey said the getting access to the information they need is their biggest challenge. Members of facilities teams spend an average of 47 minutes per day just looking for the information that they need.
Maintenance is vital, but even here a lack of clear and easily obtained MOPs. Having MOPs scattered around leads to missed maintenance schedules and can exacerbate any catastrophe.
While many organizations attempt to create their own solution to the problem, using Word and Excel, can be problematic. There is a lack of cohesion, a lack of organization, and, often, multiple version floating around.
