Event Summary

In this excerpt, Per Dahlberg, President of Asian Cloud Association gives an overview of the cloud market in the region, and Andy Burton, Chair CIF leads the panellists in a debate on their experiences and lessons learned in setting up cloud operations serving  the region.

Cloud computing is a top priority for most CIOs in the UK today. Deciding where, and how to deploy cloud infrastructure locally can be challenging enough, however, what happens when it comes to hosting and managing enterprise data in Asia Pacific?

IT decision makers must learn about new regulatory frameworks, underlying infrastructure and local business and government environments – all of which can vary tremendously in complexity across the region.

Despite this, CIOs need to understand and overcome these challenges to ensure security of data and a satisfactory experience for end-users.

This breakfast seminar aims to provide CIOs and IT Directors with a solid understanding of how to effectively deploy cloud infrastructure in Asia and will feature a keynote presentation from Per Dahlberg, Chief Executive of the Asia Cloud Computing Association.

Per will provide guidelines for effective enterprise cloud deployment in Asia and an overview of its latest Asian Cloud Readiness Index – a country-by-country analysis of cloud computing across Asia Pacific.

The event will also feature a panel session with experts and end-users who will share their experiences of cloud computing in the Asia Pacific region.
