A Professional Environment

The TechDEC at the Metro Data Center offers a professional and comfortable environment where it is easy for you to work, collaborate and learn. The TechDEC is the complementary center to the DEC in Dublin.

This newly created Technology based Entrepreneurial Center has been established for the sole purpose of fostering health and growth within local IT businesses by creating an environment that contributes directly to their individual success.

IT businesses often operate in a traditional silo model, the TechDEC model breaks down these barriers and provides a platform that develops a more Shared Service approach to business delivery.
