And the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex is no exception. Collin County, Dallas County, Denton County, and Tarrant County have all seen double-digit population growth in recent years while continuing to be really popular places to build and operate outsourced data center facilities. Considered by many industry experts to be among the healthiest and largest data center markets in the United States, most operators of colocation and wholesale data centers in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex are in a great position to help businesses grow and capitalize on emerging markets trends. While some of the strongest opportunities exist within the banking, energy, healthcare, IT, telecommunications, and transportation sectors, some data center providers in and around the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex are much better equipped than their competitors to attract and retain these new clients. The “Dallas / Fort Worth Data Center Market Opportunity Report” compares 29 colocation and wholesale data center providers for how effective each is at competing in the modern buyer’s journey that’s dominated by digital transformation. 

The 165-page report analyzes the entities operating 73 Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex data center facilities in Dallas and Fort Worth, as well as Allen, Carrollton, Garland, Lewisville, Plano, and Richardson. The research report focuses on 55 metrics with regard to how each company stacks up when looking at differentiation in the modern buyer’s journey, thought leadership strategy, website authority, competitive positioning, company social media presence, lead generation, paid search acceleration, digital infrastructure, and full-funnel revenue growth.

“The Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex has become a really popular region for building and operating colocation and wholesale data centers that provide outsourced IT infrastructure along with related value-added services. Besides being the fourth most populated metro area in the United States, data center providers and end users of data centers continue to serve and fuel very strong demand for standalone single-tenant facilities, as well as a retail colocation and wholesale data center facilities. While almost half of the facility owners and operators compared in this report are in Dallas (45.8%), with the exception of a high concentration of data centers in Richardson (19.4%), most facilities are pretty spread out throughout the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex,“ explained Joshua Feinberg, President of the Data Center Sales & Marketing Institute. 

“Among the 29 providers that own or operate these data center facilities, there’s a mix of local, and national companies, and even some publicly-traded data center real estate investment trusts (REITs). And while most of these companies are profiting from and preach the value of digital transformation, many executives at these companies have severely underinvested in their own digital transformation -- overlooking its far-reaching impact on demand generation, desired customer experience, differentiation, competitive positioning, and the ability to stave off market disruption. In the Dallas / Fort Worth Data Center Market Opportunity Report, we analyzed which colocation and wholesale data centers in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex are the most digitally-savvy and best positioned to win more business from companies across a variety of industries.”
