Digital Week 2021: Singapore

DIGITAL

DIGITAL WEEK SEA: SINGAPORE

EVENT BRIEF

The rise of Singapore in the Cloud Computing, and Datacenter sphere is remarkable, and startlingly impressive for a nation with limited space. Its position as a mature datacenter hub both lends it industry credibility, but at the same time motivates regional counterparts to emerge as market contenders. To that end, Indonesia, and Malaysia have emerged as the most formidable Cloud Computing and Datacenter competitors. Having led the industry in APAC for over a decade, the market is pivoting towards efficiency and sustainability. Its reliable power grid, coupled with skilled personnel have proved to be overwhelmingly attractive against space scarcity concerns.

As new entrants establish their presence in Singapore, they have innovated to adapt to the unique features of the market landscape. The tight regulatory structure in Singapore is fueled in part by the design inefficiencies inherent to the architecture. But these restrictions have bread ingenuity, and Singapore’s seen a massive leap in sustainable design among key industry players. Singapore’s immense amount of digital infrastructure and economic position in the region has also created an ecosystem for Fintech companies to flourish, along with other industries working to pioneer cloud technologies.

This session will highlight the remarkable innovation taking place in the Lion City, along with all the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead in 2021 and beyond.

The Digital Week Singapore Session will take place 25 February 2021 from 9AM – 12PM.  Request Sponsorship or Speaker details below to get involved!

This session is part of our larger, virtual conference: Digital Week Southeast Asia. To see the complete speaker and sponsor details, click below:

Japan Cloud & Datacenter Convention 2021

Event Summary

Japan was an early adopter of digital infrastructure and has been a leading voice in discussions championing digital transformation in circles as high up as the UN G20. But what does the state of their digital economy look like on the ground?

By many accounts, Japan performs well above its APAC neighbors–it has the second highest region share in fibre connections and currently half of all businesses use cloud computing. But,

as was the case with many countries, the pandemic revealed weaknesses in their connectivity that they’re being quick to address. 

Japan’s digitalisation is decidedly uneven. Transmission speeds are high but so are costs. Sectors like eCommerce have been able to thrive due to the quick adoption of cloud technology, and yet only 7.5% of government administrative procedures can be done entirely online. 

In the last few months, Japan announced a “Digital New Deal” to upgrade the capabilities of their governmental agencies and public services. This initiative would increase investment in the pillars of fintech, AI, infrastructure, logistics, and healthcare, providing an economic stimulus domestically while setting out a blueprint for digital transformation that countries around the world could follow.

On the data center front, however, the country continues to attract investment from big names in colocation, such as Equinix, MC Digital Realty, NEC, NTT, and AT TOKYO, thanks in part to the Internet Initiative Japan instated last year. Japan is expected to see 11% year on year revenue growth in their data center market. Submarine connectivity between Japan-Guam-Australia, and the addition of another cable running throughout South-East Asia, demonstrate Japan’s commitment to and sophistication of its connectivity initiatives.

What work is there still to be done to realise Japan’s full digital potential? Join us at W.Media’s Cloud & Data Center Convention to find out!

Taiwan Cloud & Datacenter Convention 2021

Event Summary

The explosive momentum that the Taiwanese cloud market saw up in 2021 is expected to continue well into 2022, spurred on by the digitalisation demands of COVID-19. 

Taipei has emerged as the epicenter of this rapid digital expansion–implementing plans to construct  a 5G network and additional data centers within city limits. But the nation is also looking elsewhere, pursuing both domestic and international investments to maintain their competitiveness in the region. Google, for instance, recently selected the central city of Douliu as the site to begin construction of their third data center in Taiwan.

But while some of Asia’s emerging economies like Indonesia and Thailand are making great strides in the cloud market, corporations still prefer mature economies that can provide them with a strong power network and more reliable uptime. Because multiple deep-sea cables between the USA and Asia pass through Taiwan, the island also provides a geographic advantage to the American tech giants. Recent multinational agreements with western nations have cemented Taiwan as an essential partner in the rollout of 5G networks in the APAC region. 

On the state level, Taiwan is investing in bolstering five IT sectors: technology and digital, national defense, green energy, renewable energy, and biotech. Specifically, this involves such initiatives as recruiting 80 cyber security officials to establish a national team or creating another “Asian Silicon Valley” comparable to Hsinchu Science Park. 

How will these state-level actions impact the private sector? Digitalisation in Taiwan has the potential to impact all aspects of life, from healthcare to city planning. This event will focus on the most compelling trends in the cloud computing and data center industries in Taiwan. Tune in to find out more!

Singapore’s tight regulatory structure–fuelled by the design inefficiencies inherent to data center architecture–pushes providers to innovate sustainably. In the cloud computing sphere, though, Fintech is king, and the flexibility these cloud enterprises enjoy drives competition and ensures that only the very best stand out. 

 Will the Lion City continue to punch above its weight?

W. Media is gathering a whole suite of experts to share their local insights at our upcoming Singapore Cloud & Datacenter Convention 2021.

Malaysia Cloud & Datacenter Convention 2021

Event Summary

Malaysia stands at the very edge of maturing into a fully-fledged Cloud Computing hub. In Budget 2020, a total of MYR 21.6 bn was earmarked into the National Fiberisation & Connectivity Plan (NFCP). Put in place to accelerate the roll-out of 5G connectivity throughout Malaysia, the resulting high-speed access from NFCP, allows for a total evolution of how businesses exist in the digital sphere. 

At the very heart of the question of the rise in Cloud Technologies in Malaysia, is the market position that the country has its sights on.  

With its expansive terrain, and proximity to a relatively developed cloud computing hub such as Singapore, it has the potential to absolutely challenge mature markets. Recognising this yet to be maximised window of growth, global players like Alibaba have shrewdly and rapidly moved to set-up operations in Malaysia. The Malaysia Cloud and Datacenter Convention 2020 (MYCDC2020) is tailored precisely to the massive game-changing nature of 5G, and the reverberations it carries for all major players in Malaysia’s Cloud Ecosystem.

At W.Media’s Cloud and Data Center Convention, both industry leaders and new entrants alike can expect to be in the forefront on the debate of issues surrounding these rapidly transforming industries.

Is Effective Cybersecurity Expensive?

Event Summary

Discover the newest cybersecurity solutions suited to your business needs and best practice to combat cyber threats.

Cyberattacks can cost a business millions or even billions of dollars on top of irreparable reputational damage.

Here are some alarming statistics:

  • By 2021, cybercrime will cost $6 trillion globally
  • Asia Pacific had the most cybersecurity incidents in the world
  • 96% of Singaporean businesses suffered a data breach in 2019
  • The Philippines ranked the 7th most attacked country in the world
  • 94% of Vietnamese enterprises were victims of information breaches
  • 84% of organisations will continue to support remote work after the pandemic, but 41% have not expanded their security.

Effective cybersecurity requires time and money spent on appropriate software, training staff and empowering a culture of cybersecurity.

But despite the detrimental risks, cybersecurity spending in Southeast Asia was estimated at $1.9 billion in 2017, a tiny 0.06% of the region’s GDP. 

And though spending is expected to grow by 15% in Southeast Asia and US$133.8 billion globally, will this be enough to prevent the increasingly complex cyberthreats?

While the pandemic might be one of the largest security threats the world has ever seen, the need for cybersecurity isn’t new and will continue far into the future. 

So, the question is, can you afford not to have effective cybersecurity?

Enterprise Cyber Security in South Asia – Why it Matters?

Sponsors

Event Summary

Almost 7 lakh cyber attacks were faced by commercial and legal entities and the citizens in India in 2020 as per The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeITY).

Enterprises in many countries like India, Bangladesh, Sri-Lanka are being subjugated to complex cyber-attacks which speaks for the vulnerabilities of the cyber landscape in South Asia. This can be easily attributed to lack of necessary cyber intelligence and the political and regulatory processes.

This cyber threat landscape across South Asia poses significant challenges due to rapid technological developments such as Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence, lnternet of Things, 5G.

The Government of India is working on a draft of the National Cyber Security Strategy 2020 that envisages creating a secure cyberspace in India. Similarly, a Cyber Security Act is being proposed under the National Cyber Security Strategy of Sri Lanka.

With the support of the various Government initiatives, enterprises are now looking at creating a comprehensive framework to prevent, manage cybersecurity threats and incidents effectively, and protect critical information infrastructure.

Join us for the Enterprise Cyber Security in South Asia webinar as we bring the top 200 IT Security professionals to hear from industry leaders on risk mitigation mechanisms and cybersecurity.
