Join us at the Conference on University Purchasing 2019 at the University of Leicester. Hosted by North Eastern Universities Purchasing Consortium (NEUPC), the event runs from the 4th to the 5th of September. The conference provides a unique opportunity for Heads of Procurement, Category Managers and buyers from across the UK to meet with colleagues from other institutions and suppliers to the Higher Education sector.
Reductions in budgets, increasing overhead efficiencies, the squeeze on real estate and the drive for better utilisation are all challenges we are seeing becoming increasingly more common, not least of all within the public sector.
It is commonly know that with the rising growth of the Data Centre economy, efforts to diversify the data centre industry's workforce and addressing the skills gap is becoming more and more significant.
Data centres continue to be a growing industry. Our digital future and the ongoing significant increase and dependency, both globally and in the UK for digital technology, demonstrates that it is here to stay.
Last week the Keysource team attended the Careers and Graduate Fair at the University of Bath as part of our drive to educate the students about the critical environment sector.
We are proud to announce the successful renewal of our appointment on the NEUPC Data Centre Framework.
Critical environment specialist Keysource has completed a strategic audit of the critical data centres for a leading UK University, placing in the top 25 of this year’s Times Good University Rankings.
It’s a commonly known fact that there is a growing skill shortage within STEM industries with Gartner estimating there will be a shortage of 90,000 IT professionals by 2020 in Europe alone.
Furthering our commercial success in the education, technology and utilities sectors, we have secured new contracts to support three customers’ changing data centre needs.
Keysource, the expert in business critical environments, has been appointed by the University of Leicester on a three-year extendable contract to provide critical data centre facilities management (FM) services. It builds on a seven-year relationship which started in 2009 when Keysource designed and built the University’s award winning data centre which they then expanded in 2011, almost doubling it in size.
