Is South Korea following the green data center trend?

The green data center and sustainable solutions market is rapidly growing, as governments crack down on the growing energy consumption and carbon emissions caused by data centers.

In South Korea, data center operators like IBM, EhostIDC, LG CNS and Naver have all invested in green data center solutions, including raised flooring, solar power and outside air cooling and liquid cooling.

The Korea Information Technology Service Industry Association also launched the Green Data Center Certificate in the country, with the goal of reducing energy consumption and having more than 15% of local data centers obtain the certificate. 

But South Korea is still the seventh largest emitter of carbon dioxide in the world, and the twelfth largest emitter of total greenhouse gas emissions.

Meanwhile, data center providers are recycling waste heat for hyperscale facilities in Indonesia and exploring hydrogen-powered data centers in Singapore.

So, how does South Korea compare to the rest of Asia in implementing green data center technologies? Join industry experts on Thursday 13 August to discover the latest green data center solutions and how you can get involved in saving the environment!

How to select the best data center for your needs?

From colocation and enterprise facilities, to hyperscales and edge data centers, the choices in Asia Pacific are growing exponentially. This makes for a challenging decision in selecting and migrating data centers.

You may be asking ‘Which type of data center is best suited to my needs?’, ‘Will my data be secure?’ or ‘Is it suitably connected to allow my business to scale and digitally transform?’

You can get the answers to these questions and more at our ‘Data Center Selection & Migration in Asia Pacific’ digital event on Thursday 23 July.

Register now to join fellow industry peers from Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, China Mobile, Alliance Bank and more. 

Reliably powering your data center with Raritan

Having reliable power sources is paramount for any data center, as outages could lead to detrimental monetary loss and reputational damage.

Data centers have traditionally been built on the foundation of business continuity and more recently on security. But with more businesses going digital, agile and reliable data centers are needed to allow organisations to adapt to fast-changing environments.

“How data center players bring agility to the infrastructure layer and enable facilities to adapt to changing business requirements is the key to success,” said Sanjay Motwani, Vice President for Asia Pacific at Raritan, a brand of Legrand Data Center Solutions, our Platinum Sponsor for this event.

Raritan manufactures hardware, including power management solutions for data centers as well as remote server management and audio visual solutions.

Mr. Motwani will share his expert insights in selecting and identifying the best reliable and sustainable power solutions for your business.

Ensuring efficient data center management with TalariaX

The evaluation process serves as the foundation for your company’s virtual infrastructure when selecting a facility for the first time or migrating to a different data center. This decision will last a long time, so it is important to get it right.

Choosing how your data center is managed and the extent to which incident management is carried out is crucial. Supplementing these decisions with a robust notification system could mean the difference between costly downtime and no downtime.

“Data center selection needs to be comprehensive and not merely on cost or compute, but looking at the whole package,” said Jeat Shyan Wong, the Founder and CEO from our Bronze Sponsors at TalariaX.

TalariaX delivers efficient data center management through their DCIM and sendQuick services to provide alerts and notifications for any issues affecting critical parts of a data center.

Mr. Wong will provide more detail on the importance of data center management and strong notification platforms at our event this Thursday.

Selecting the best data center in Southeast Asia

Competition is mounting across Asia Pacific, as mainstays including AIMS, Keppel Data Centres and Equinix are accompanied by a long list of telcos like DITO and FPT Telecom and tech giants such as Google, AWS, Huawei, Microsoft and Alibaba in the data center scene.

With more data centers coming online, the choice can be overwhelming.

Our experts during the first panel session on 23 July will enlighten us on how to select the best data center for your needs as well as overcoming the challenges associated with this.

We will be joined by Jeffrey Tay, the Vice President of Global Strategic Market Development at SpaceDC. The Singapore-based data center provider recently achieved the recognition of being the first to achieve the OCP Ready™ certification for their JAK2 facility in Indonesia.

Mr. Tay will share his vast knowledge of delivering end-to-end solutions for data centers and bridging strategic solutions with partners and vendors to create a strong value proposition for the end customer.

Accompanying Mr. Tay will be Chan Kee Siak, the Founder and CEO of Exabytes Group, a web hosting company with more than 100,000 worldwide customers and one million users  in 121 countries.

Mr. Kee Siak is set to enlighten our audience on the importance of selecting data centers that are safe and secure.

Migrating your data center with ease

With more choice in the type of data centers available in the future, you may even consider migrating to a new operating environment to increase connectivity, enable growth or save costs.

But selecting the best data center to migrate to comes with concerns around strategy, planning and security.

To answer your data center migration questions, we will have Sanjay Motwani of Raritan to share his experiences on moving your data securely and strategically.

We will also be joined by Tran Viet Hoan, the Group CIO of THACO Group, one of the leading car manufacturers in Vietnam and an end-user of data centers to empower digital transformation.

Mr. Hoan will deliver his insights on successfully implementing project plans and management as a CIO.

W.Media Tech Talk: Revolutionising industries with OCP open networking

W.Media Tech Talk: Revolutionising industries with OCP open networking

For years, large companies have been disaggregating their data center networks through solutions like open networking, but now this is rapidly moving into the enterprise space as well as telco and public sectors.

More than 100 delegates joined W.Media’s and Open Compute Project’s most recent digital event to shed light on open networking, one of OCP’s fastest growing projects.

Steve Helvie, the VP of Channel at OCP, described three main reasons for the growth of disaggregation in the data center, which allow for greater flexibility at the enterprise level:

  1. Reduction in data center capital expenditure opportunity
  2. The increase in Software-Defined Networking (SDN) offerings
  3. The rise in merchant-based silicon

Steve said: “When people are moving toward this disaggregation model, they are moving towards an OCP-based switch, which has been open sourced at the specification level and design level.”

OCP’s 0pen networking disaggregates the hardware from the software allowing for freedom of choice to prevent vendor lock-in, creating a flexible combination of software based on workloads. This creates a highly efficient network resulting in significant savings of up to 50% in CAPEX compared to traditional OEM networking.

Open networking for vendors

The number one contributor of open networking in the OCP Community, Edgecore Networks, is a leader in regional vendor communities and has a seat on OCP’s technical steering committee which oversees the various OCP projects like open networking.

Bui Banh, the Business Development Vice President of Edgecore Networks, described OCP open networking solutions as providing greater control for customers by empowering them to choose the right hardware or software and develop an innovative solution for their needs.

While working with OCP, Edgecore Networks has contributed to more than 17 designs accepted by OCP’s Community, including Photonics Switching for data centers, Aggregations and Core switches for telecoms and Open Wi-Fi for enterprises.

Bui said: “A few telcos including Telefonica have decided to use our Cell Site Router for their 5G deployment.”

Bui also mentioned there are many more telco customers working on the Cell Site solution, but he was unable to publicly announce the names of these companies at present.

OPC successfully helps customers transform to open networking

DCConnect Global, a software-defined networking vendor and carrier that has the ability to reach more than 1,500 different data centers worldwide, found success transforming to an OCP open networking solution.

Michael Rascoe, the Head of Solutions at DCConnect Global, said: “We tried to take those same principles and thoughts [of disaggregation] and move them into the telco space where there is not traditionally good penetration of the open source hardware and software.”

Originally, DC Connect Global had more than 120 pops using H3C switches to help hyperscale their network and meet their immediate goals. But they began to suffer from vendor lock-in, as the H3C SDN Controller only worked with H3C switches.

Jonathan Leung, the Head of R&D at DCConnect Global, said: “That leads to a limited feature set, which means that if we wanted to have some features that H3C currently doesn’t support, we will have to wait for H3C’s pipeline.”

He added: “For us, as a very agile company, the speed of development is not acceptable.”

DCConnect Global eventually moved to Edgecore Networks and Linux, allowing them to treat the network more like a piece of software by changing up the source code to add the features they needed.

Michael said: “What we actually found ourselves doing is, instead of adopting another traditional carrier solution and their controller, we wrote our own controller that could talk to our legacy H3C devices as well as the newer Linux NOSes.”

Both Edgecore and Cumulus Linux flew out engineers to DCConnect’s new Hong Kong office to support them and build out their proof of concept in a weekend.

Michael added: “We were really excited and really energised by the amount of attention and focus that we got from both Cumulus and Edgecore.”

DCConnect began to switch around a year ago, and it took just a few months to begin using the Cumulus-Edgecore combo on the new pops. They are now going through to replace hardware on legacy pops, though this has been slowed down slightly due to the current economic state caused by the pandemic.

In total, DCConnect had less than a dozen people work on this project.

Overcoming the challenges of moving to an open networking solution

Michael said the hardest part of the transition was thinking how to get a network engineer to think like a software engineer and vice versa. This challenge eventually became a net positive, as they found their network engineers learnt more about the software world and the same for software engineers learning more about the network.

Another challenge could be the lack of experience on platforms like Linux, but Michael suggested you talk to younger and newer developers on your team.

He added: “They’re straight out of university and they’re still in that learning mode and they know a lot more about the modern architecture.”

Michael has also noticed that the uptake of open networking in Asia Pacific has been somewhat slow due to the fear of the unknown and fear of Linux as well as pushback from those that have traditionally lived in a CCIE hierarchy.

To get started, you could go on to the Cumulus website and spin up a virtual lab, or if you have a hypervisor or a good server that you can do some virtualisation in, you can pull down all the Cumulus Linux demo labs.

Michael added: “There are plenty of people that are happy to talk to you about this because a lot of us are just nerds that really love Linux.”

What’s next after implementing open networking?

Jonathan believes that now that separation of hardware and software is made possible, the data center will become more disaggregated and the cloud will become more important as the place to build virtual network functions or virtual data centers.

Jonathan predicted: “I think OCP technologies are going to open up many markets in developing economies with the idea that the network resources can be bought and sold from anywhere without any physical restrictions, which is going to revolutionize the networking industry.”

OCP was started by Facebook in 2011 with the intention of creating a collaborative community focused on redesigning hardware technology and providing efficient data center designs for scalable computing. 

Since then, OCP has been joined by over 150 companies to work on common problems, developed more than 190 contributions and 6,000 engineers working across 15 to 20 different projects.

Steve was very pleased to announce during the Tech Talk that Google joined the board of the Open Compute Project on May 12 2020.

The Open Compute Project expects to become its own US$5.3 billion business in 2020 and reach US$11.8 billion by 2023.

W.Media Spotlight Digital Event: A promising post-pandemic future for digital transformation in Southeast Asia

Businesses across Southeast Asia are looking to rapidly initiate digital transformation strategies after being forced online to continue operations during the pandemic.

More than 180 top executives joined C-level speakers from a broad spectrum of industries to hear a promising outlook for our digital transformation future in a post-pandemic world during W.Media’s Spotlight digital event.

We kicked off our pre-show with Tran Viet Hoan, the Group CIO of Vietnam’s second largest company and leading automaker, THACO Group. He noticed digital transformation is happening fast with banks, microfinance and life insurance industries pioneering DX strategies during the pandemic.

Mr Tran warned: “If you don’t transform your business digitally, you will die faster.”

Telcos in Southeast Asia is just one example of where digital transformation is happening constantly, moving from traditional landlines and cell phones to a digitally connected platform.

Mr Tran said: “VNPT, the biggest telco service provider in Vietnam, only moved to the platform for agriculture. You could not believe that 10 years before, a telco company did agriculture.”

A Gartner study revealed around 50% of successful digital transformation strategies focus on people issues and 37% on process issues. Mr Tran advised listeners to focus on customer experience, operational efficiencies, business model transformation and pain points, with the customer coming first.

Mr Tran added: “No digital transformation is successful without investment throughout the business, this includes every single staff in the organisation, including the Chairman or CEO.”

We were then joined by Nelson Tan, the Director of InfoComm Infrastructure at Nanyang Technological University, who shared a fascinating case study on how NTU digitally transformed their operations during the pandemic.

Thriving through automation and digitisation

In our first panel session, we explored how startups and enterprises can overcome the challenges of digitisation.

Maximising sustainability is crucial for companies going through these unprecedented times. Jae Lee, CTO of online travel agency WorldRoamer, believes applying process automation is one initiative that could achieve sustainability.

At WorldRoamer, they focus automation on business operation and product development workflow to find areas where they can reduce the lead time in communication and resolution time for product delivery.

Aik-Phong Ng, the Managing Director for Fave, a leading lifestyle app in Singapore, believes the outlook for digital transformation is a positive one with a lot of opportunities to increase business and reduce costs.

Mr Ng said: “I think one of the reasons is because there really is no choice. You’re forced [to go digital] by regulation or because your revenue drops to zero.”

Before the pandemic, Fave would physically onboard around 1,000 merchants a month for their cashless payment product using QR codes. Now, during the Circuit Breaker period in Singapore, they digitally onboard merchants, leading to an increase in efficiency and sales productivity.

Mr Ng added: “Those who can adapt and thrive in this new environment and work remotely are going to be the winners.”

The Chairman of the global professional body of IT architects, IASA, Aaron Tan Dani noted that case studies of successful digital transformation have applied an enterprise architecture model by understanding how the changes to operations have impacted internal and external stakeholders.

Creating a innovative culture through technology leadership

Digital Transformation efforts often require a transformational culture in their people, processes and technology, but many separate the business teams from the IT teams. Transformation strategies require strong commitment from senior management to enable both teams to collaborate and work closely on strategy.

Axel Winter, the CTO for Thailand’s largest retailer, Central Group, said: “Empowerment is important, but you need the CEO, CIO, CTO, CMO to be in the day to day perspective going into the details.” 

He added: “This is not something you can have a traditional people manager looking at your report once a week. There has to be instant messaging, there has to be daily touch points across the bottom to the top.”

Wilbertus Darmadi, the CIO of Toyota Astra Motors, started digitally transforming the business by setting a technology benchmark against large companies like Microsoft and AWS to open the mindset of C-level staff and showing them examples of how businesses can change using technology.

Mr Darmadi also highlighted one way to digitally transform staff and help them become digitally ready was by modernising the physical environment of their offices and promoting an innovative culture with competitions.

Stay tuned for more insights from our Digital Transformation Spotlight Digital Event

In the coming weeks, we will take a deeper look at the sessions from the digital event, including answers to your unanswered questions!

Thank you to our supporting partners across Southeast Asia. We will be back on Thursday 21 May to discover how Open Compute Project Foundation’s open networking solutions can transform legacy data center systems.

Transforming legacy systems with open networking

Author

As we move into a new cloud-enabled world, the need for flexibility and lower networking costs in data centers is increasing, along with rapidly changing network requirements across various applications.

The Open Compute Project, a collaborative community focused on redesigning hardware technology and providing efficient data center designs for scalable computing, has a solution: Open Networking. This will be the focus of our next Tech Talk with OCP.

The solution involves disaggregating bare-metal hardware from the software layer, allowing for freedom of choice through flexible combinations of software. The open networking switches enable a highly efficient network that can save up to 50% in CAPEX compared to traditional systems.

Started by Facebook in 2011, the Open Compute Project shares best practices for data center design with some of the biggest names in the industry, including Google, Microsoft, Alibaba Group, IBM and more.

Since its production in 2013, OCP’s switches have grown rapidly and now account for 55% of bare-metal switches sold in the data center market. And this is continuing to grow, as hyperscalers, enterprise data centers, telcos and campus WiFi are adopting the open networking switches. Why? Because open networking can achieve lower operating costs, improve performance and empower scale-outs in smaller increments.

Following a successful first Tech Talk, OCP will return on 21 May 2020 at 11am for Open Networking – A look at the growth and transformation of networks across Asia and Oceania.

Register now to join OCP and end users who have transformed their network from traditional legacy systems to agile open networks using OCP switches. Attendees will also get the chance to explore how they can embrace open networking with a question and answer session with industry experts.

Open Networking in telco and data centers

After an introduction on Open Networking by OCP’s VP of Channel Steve Helvie, attendees will learn about the key benefits of open networking and overcoming transformation challenges from Edgecore Networks’ Business Development Vice President Bui Banh.

Bui is a veteran who has worked for more than 30 years in the telecommunications, media and technology industries. He is a top contributor to open source groups, including the Open Compute Project and Open Networking Foundation.

Transformation from a traditional legacy system to an agile open network

We will also hear from Jonathan Leung of DCConnect, an end-user that has successfully transformed legacy systems into an agile open network using OCP’s solutions. DCConnect Global is a pioneer in innovating on-demand global cloud connectivity.

Jonathan leads a team of talented developers to enable telcos to be free from vendor lock-in and allow their networks to migrate to an OCP-based infrastructure.

W.Media Spotlight Digital Event: Surviving the challenges for a thriving digital transformation plan

Digital transformation has become a necessary step for businesses, with 70% of companies either having a strategy in place or working on one. 

For our next digital event, we will explore the importance of digital transformation, particularly in a time where industries have been forced to go digital due to the pandemic.

Even before the pandemic, Asia has been leading the way in digital transformation, as businesses have moved to implementing digital tools like artificial intelligence, cloud technology and the Internet of Things to enhance their processes. 

The signs of Southeast Asia’s digital transformation are obvious from small enterprises, to its impressive fleet of tech unicorns like Grab, Lazada, Shopee, Agoda, Tokopedia and Shopee. 

These advancements, along with increasing Internet traffic and social media usage, are driving a high level of interest from the region’s governments who are implementing various strategies to grow the digital economy.

But despite the growing interest, 70% of digital transformation plans are known to fail in reaching their goals. Why are so many businesses failing and how can we overcome the challenges?

You are invited to join industry experts and peers to explore the benefits of digital transformation and ways of overcoming the challenges on 14 May 2020 from 11am SGT at our next free digital event Digital Transformation – Through Lens of CXOs and SME Business Owners.

Key executives and digital transformation decision makers from various industries throughout the world have already registered to experience one of the largest technology and market digital talk shows in Asia. Register now to secure your virtual place.

Digital transformation roadmap, change management and the common approach that are applicable to all organizations

Join the Director of InfoComm Infrastructure at Nanyang Technological University, Nelson Tan, as he shares a case study on how NTU implemented a cloud strategy that helped the university during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Nelson will discuss the key benefits and challenges of digitally transforming their education offer as well as complying with COVID-19 regulations through cloud services.

[Leaders’ Discussion] Key challenges in enterprise digitization. How much process automation exists in your organisation today?

W.Media Power Talk: Finding optimism and inspiration during the pandemic

W.Media Power Talk: Finding optimism and inspiration during the pandemic

By | Cloud, Cybersecurity, Data Center, Digital Transformation, News, W.Media Events

W.Media Power Talk: Finding optimism and inspiration during the pandemic

More than 370 technology experts and enthusiasts came together for our first Power Talk, sponsored by Keppel Data Centres, to explore the state of our industry and the digital economy in these challenging times.

We kicked off Inside Asia – Technology & Market Next Moveswith a pre-show interview from young cybersecurity pioneer Ben Chua that was both empowering and gave hope for a bright post-pandemic future.

Mr Chua, the CEO of Cyber Youth Singapore, gave some advice to his younger peers looking to break into the industry: “The key thing is to never give up. When we first started Cyber Youth Singapore, we faced many rejections and people didn’t take us seriously. It’s really the perseverance and strength of us banding together that made everything work.”

Mr Chua added established generations in cybersecurity can help by mentoring and keeping an open mind by giving youths a chance.

In attendance, Rendy Rinaldy, Data Center and Client Administrator at Alfamart, said: “Ben Chua, you give us inspiration that cybersecurity is important.”

A new hope: The digital economy and tech spending post-pandemic

Amongst the negative news surrounding the pandemic, our first panel session, led by DC1st’s Ka Vin Wong, gave us an optimistic outlook for the digital economy’s future.

The Co-founder and COO of Princeton Digital Group, Varoon Raghavan, said it was business as usual, despite the pandemic.

Mr Raghavan discussed a positive view on the data center industry: “ There is extremely high demand that’s not related to the pandemic, that’s just the way that the business is.”

With surges in internet usage from more remote working and data center operators considered essential workers throughout the world, the necessity for data centers is becoming even clearer.

Mr Raghavan added: “We are doing all we can to keep up with that demand to ensure that the digital economy goes on and gives people some diversion in this difficult time.”

And it’s not just data centers seeing increasing demand. Jason Frisch, the CEO of Tsukaeru Group, is finding that cloud services are reaping the benefits from the work from home situations that many of us are currently in.

Mr Frisch said: “Obviously there’s going to be a big shift to cloud services and I don’t see it going backwards.”

But Mr Frisch warned that costs may start to rise with all the new money flowing around, but this is difficult for providers to do when trying to make a profit margin, particularly for non-hyperscale players.

The rising use of cloud applications like Zoom has also brought concerns of cybercrime to the forefront. 

Cybersecurity expert Anthony Lim said: “All these issues make the end user become more aware of cybersecurity and cyber hygiene requirements … which is good because it heightens the awareness of cybersecurity.”

How 5G, Cloud and Datacenter Outlook have been shaped by recent events

In the second panel session, we explored the current state of the 5G, cloud and data center industries and opportunities for investment.

Our panel agreed there will be a slow down in 5G rollout schedules due to the pandemic. But Sachin Mittal, the Head of Telecom, Media and Technology Research at DBS Bank, believed the outbreak will generate new use cases to further enable remote work in industries such as healthcare where there was originally some hesitancy in adopting 5G.

Importantly, 5G will enable much more data creation from faster surfing speeds and more device connectiving, placing greater pressure on data centers. 

There is no doubt that 5G can enable new revenue streams and open up new business opportunities. The new technology is likely to improve smoother accessibility and efficiency for cloud-based applications with its promise of low or zero latency.

Kok Chye Ong, the Head of Global Strategy and Investments at Keppel Data Centres, said: “We look forward to seeing how 5G will evolve, and how data centres will continue to play a critical role to support network latency and network architecture of this new technology.”

Telcos could see a lack of increased revenue when traffic increases due to the rollout of 5G. But we have seen attempts to monetise existing customer bases in the past with Singtel and Grab teaming up for a digital banking venture.

Ajay Sunder, the Deputy Director of Strategy at SC-Nex, said: “There is a use case for 5G which is not being talked about, which is the private networks.”

Private networks allow for non-carriers of 5G to come into the ecosystem and explore monetizable new use cases, splitting the infrastructure spend between non-traditional carriers like industrial and public safety players.

How will new investments and technologies digitally transform business?

Along with the pandemic forcing the world online, advancing technologies in data centers, cloud services and 5G will open the door for organisations to consider or rejuvenate strategies to digitally transform their business.

Thank you to our sponsors at Keppel Data Centres and our supporting partners across Southeast Asia for helping to make the first Power Talk a huge success. And a big congratulations to Darmadi, the CIO of Toyota Astra Motor, who won our grand prize for asking the best question during the Power Talk.

Prepare for a post-pandemic future with W.Media’s first digital Power Talk event

Prepare for a post-pandemic future with W.Media’s first digital Power Talk event

By | Cloud, Cybersecurity, Data Center, News, W.Media Events

Prepare for a post-pandemic future with W.Media’s first digital Power Talk event

The pandemic has thrown the world into a state of uncertainty, but this is our opportunity to come together and prepare for a future where technology and digital transformation in our professional and personal lives is becoming a necessity.

On 30 April 2020 from 11am SGT at our free Inside Asia – Technology & Market Next Moves digital event you can join industry experts and peers to explore the current and future outlook of 5G, cloud services, data centers and cybersecurity.

Our first Power Talk, proudly sponsored by industry leader Keppel Data Centres, will include two panel sessions that you won’t want to miss.

The first panel will invite you to engage with a discussion on the digital economy and tech spending. Our second panel will focus on the current outlook for 5G, cloud and data centers as well as future investment opportunities.

Close to 500 key executives throughout the world have already registered across telecommunications, OTT, finance, banking and more industry verticals to experience one of the largest technology and market digital talk shows in Asia.

A new hope: The digital economy and tech spending post-pandemic

The Southeast Asian digital economy is booming and tech spending is growing steady. But how could this change now that the pandemic has forced many to work from home, increasing the demand for data centers and cloud services?

In the first panel, we will be joined by experts in the data center, cloud and cybersecurity industries to share their perspectives and answer your questions on the current value of the industry and how we can make our future brighter.

With more than 30 years of experience, the Managing Director of DC1st Wong Ka Vin will be the lead moderator for both sessions. Before DC1st, Ka Vin led a major rebranding process for 1-Net and continued to grow its revenue by expanding their customer base. He also led the development for SEA’s 1st Uptime Tier III DCCF DC in Singapore.

Supporting Ka Vin will be Anthony Lim of Fortinet, a pioneer in the Asia Pacific cloud and cybersecurity space with over 20 years’ experience. Anthony is a trusted voice on cybersecurity and governance matters, appearing on television and news publications multiple times.

Our moderators will put your questions to two key names in the industry. 

Varoon Raghavan, the Co-founder and COO of Asia’s data center giant Princeton Digital Group, will share his experience of more than 15 years in the internet infrastructure industry. 

Jason Frisch, the founder of top cloud services provider Tsukaeru Group, will be there to explain how COVID-19 can be an opportunity for you to invest in long-term strategies.

How 5G, Cloud and Datacenter Outlook have been shaped by recent events

Virtually every industry imaginable has been impacted and forever shaped by the recent coronavirus outbreak, but this doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom. 

From increased internet traffic and cloud adoption to demand for greater connectivity, there are opportunities to turn this negative present into a positive future.

For our second panel, we will have three more fantastic speakers to share strategies and bold predictions for the investment outlook of our industry.

The Deputy Director of Strategy for SC-Nex, Ajay Sunder, will provide his extensive investment knowledge on various industries built during more than 13 years across Southeast Asia.

Along with Ajay, we will have Kok Chye Ong, the Head of Global Strategy and Investments from our sponsors at Keppel Data Centres. Kok Chye has helped to grow Keppel Data Centres’ presence in APAC and EMEA as well as expanding into new markets such as Netherlands, Germany and Indonesia.

And sharing his vast expertise on 5G and the impact of digital technologies on banking, retail and telecom sector, we have Sachin Mittal. His achievements include being ranked as the number one telecom analyst in Asia by the Wall Street Journal in 2013.

And joining Ka Vin as supporting moderator will be me, Stuart Crowley, W.Media’s Editor. I am looking forward to welcoming you online to our first Power Talk. It will be exciting to see some fantastic engagement – asking a great question could even win you a $50 Amazon gift card!

You are encouraged to register online as soon as possible. Spaces are limited and going fast. Make sure to secure your place to join industry peers from Southeast Asia, China, Japan, India, Australia, New Zealand, UK and USA.

See you at 11am SGT on 30 April for Inside Asia – Technology & Market Next Moves!
