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!
