Inside the big data truck: a digital workplace in action


Take look at what happens inside our digital workplace-on-wheels. Read more…

Evolving from a mobile data centre into a hyperconnected, mobile collaboration hub, the big data truck is a central node for the Tour de France technical solution. It’s a shining example of a digital workplace in action this year. Inside the truck, ‘local’ teams collaborate with international colleagues to deliver the solution, using a range of the latest digital workplace tools, including HD video screens and videoconferencing facilities. The big data truck is also connected to the Dimension Data’s mobile Client Experience Centre, stationed in four different cities in Germany and France at various times during the Tour, as well as to other locations and offices in which team members will work. The technology used creates a virtual end-of-race experience for the team, in other words, colleagues working remotely will have access to the same video feed of the race action as local team members viewing HD display screens inside the truck.
