Are Thailand’s cloud and data center markets on the verge of greatness?
Published 30 October 2020
Thailand’s cloud and data center market could be on the verge of greatness. Moves are being made by significant players in the industry to enable digital transformation in the country.
As more data centers come online and cloud players make their presence known, connectivity and latency could improve to empower businesses to grow or go digital.
“COVID-19 has accelerated the adoption of digital transformation in Thailand at a pace we have never witnessed before. Together with 5G adoption, the digital platform has played an important part that drives the businesses and social interactions in the next normal world,” said Supparat Sivapetchranat Singhara Na Ayutthaya, the Chief Executive Officer at ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (Thailand).
ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (Thailand) are building Bangkok’s first hyperscale data center campus in response to the country’s growing digital requirements for connectivity, low-latency and data processing.
With 61% of Thailand’s gross domestic product expected to be digitalised by 2022, and 95% of the population with broadband access by 2023, this market is quickly becoming one of the most interesting case studies in the region.
These advancements are leading to multinational companies eyeing the country for investment. But as these improvements are made and more of the population goes online, broadband quality and energy sustainability become increasingly pressing challenges for the market to overcome.
On Wednesday 4 November, join us at the Thailand Cloud and Datacenter Digital Summit to find out how we can work together to overcome these challenges and be a part of the country’s bright digital future.
“I am confident that time to drive a digital strategy has become essential for all businesses, thus I look forward to sharing key success factors, not only driving digital transformation, but on digital leadership,” said Mr. Supparat.
On the show, we will be joined by experts from ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (Thailand), Alibaba Cloud, the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society, AIS, True Internet Data Center, Fortinet, ZNet Technologies, Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, Microsoft, Krungthai Bank, Sistema Asia, Acumen Consulting and APTelecom.
“I’d say all the speakers are remarkable. They are the experts in their areas. By attending this event, you will be able to get updates on the newest trends, cloud and data insights, as well as different interesting perspectives. I hope everyone could eventually apply what they learn and contribute to their organisations in some way,“ added Mr. Supparat.
During an insightful thought leadership presentation on Digital Leadership, Mr. Supparat will aim to uplift the industry by sharing his expertise as a leader in Thailand.
“I will focus on digital transformation, because we have industry insights and we see the growing demand in digital consumption in the Southeast Asia market,” he said.
Also on the show, we will take a look at how IT leaders and emerging technology are converging in the future with Damien Scalzo of Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, how to build digital resilience for the new reality with Arpaporn Skunkittiyut from Microsoft, and building a safety-first culture in the workplace with Surachai Chatchalermpun from Krungthai Bank.
