About Andrew

Andrew Donoghue is a senior technology analyst with 451 Research. He works within the Datacenter Technologies (DCT) research unit, and Eco-Efficient IT research unit.

DCT is focused on the supply side of the datacenter including the many companies, large and small, that have created products to help companies build and manage advanced, resilient and energy efficient datacenters. The supplier and product areas covered by the service span datacenter specific IT and M&E (mechanical and electrical) equipment; IT hardware and software for the management of datacenters; and emerging IT technologies that help to optimize datacenter efficiency, availability or agility (such as intelligent power management).

Eco-IT covers the IT marketplace as companies move beyond their traditional competencies and understand developments in energy supply, compliance, carbon trading and facilities management. We do this with an international perspective, and according to the four key drivers in our ECCO model: Economics (financial), Compliance (legal and government policy), CSER (corporate social and environmental responsibility) and Operations (practical and operational IT issues).

Andrew is also heavily involved in European Commission research projects including Optimis, CoolEmAll and RenewIT.
