Frisco, Texas – March 6, 2020 – MOPstar has been named as one of only five finalists for Data Center World’s Innovation Startup Challenge to be held at Data Center World 2020, March 16-19, 2020 in San Antonio, Texas.
“Method of procedures (MOP) have been overlooked and are due for modernization and automation. Doctors use computerized check lists. Pilots check lists are all automated and digitized. But data center engineers are often left to their own memories or must refer to Word documents or 3 ring binders of procedures. This situation needed to be addressed,” said Ajay Nagar, Founder and CEO of MOPstar and a veteran of data center and critical infrastructure industry.
He went on to say, “the cumbersome nature of managing procedures is at odds with every other process or department in any business organization. IT have dedicated systems like ITSM, sales have automated CRMs, construction is not done on spreadsheets anymore. But the crucial function of data center infrastructure operations in a centralized and controlled way was somehow overlooked. MOPstar digitizes MOPs and automate every single aspect of the workflow, enabling engineers and technicians to focus on more important things.”
MOPstar is a SAAS (software as a service) offering and currently has clients in colocation, utility and healthcare data centers among others. Studies suggest human error as leading cause (as much as 80%) of down time with each minute costing thousands of dollars. MOPstar is designed to prevent expensive operational errors and save time on operations and maintenance activities.
To be considered for the Start Up Challenge, MOPstar was competitively selected because of its unique and innovative solution for the data center industry. All contestants have revenue of under $5 million, 50 or fewer employees, are Series A or before, and 5 or fewer years of age. This is a highly competitive and coveted award.
“The inaugural Innovation Startup Challenge at Data Center World aims to recognize startup companies who are making a significant impact on the data center industry,” said Brian Gillooly, Content Director, Data Center World. “We are thrilled to host our finalists on the expo stage to learn more about the exciting innovation happening within these organizations. Each finalist is truly influencing the future of the industry and should be proud of this well-deserved recognition.”
