Q&A: CentricsIT's Derek Odegard On Rolling With Changes Over 10 Years


Does the market for IT asset disposition service have long legs?

It absolutely does, especially with the heightened awareness around data security and the need for organizations to be environmental stewards. That aspect of the IT lifecycle has got a lot of legs. What we're seeing organizations really move toward is more of a hybrid cloud solution. So there will be constant refresh and there will be -- especially in the next three to 10 years as more and more organizations [move] applications to the cloud -- … an opportunity to help them with that process [with] their legacy equipment. And then that equipment typically either gets recycled or, in a perfect scenario, it's more of a re-use situation where that equipment gets marketed to, typically, other markets overseas that are not as developed and are not yet transitioning to cloud-type scenarios.
