Deploying industry-standard and regulated OTT Platforms across Asia Pacific: Featuring SEA Region Publishers

Event Summary

The Southeast Asian OTT market is generally in a rapid growth phase, and according to a report released by Dataxis, SVOD subscriptions in Southeast Asia will keep on an upward trend from 2017 to 2022, with SVOD subscribers expected to grow to 6.2 million in 2022 and mobile subscriptions expected to grow to 60% by 2022. Meanwhile, the SVOD market in Southeast Asia is expected to reach $390 million in revenue.

While the Southeast Asian market is attractive, it is home to a variety of different cultures, religions, consumer preferences and, for many, strong government regulation. And, the Southeast Asian OTT market has a diversity of participants in a fierce competition – including some traditional media organizations that are also actively involved. Among them, multinational organizations, represented by Netflix, have made the market more competitive by strengthening localized content and implementing low-rate mobile offerings. In addition to many regional OTT players and national service providers, digital giants from the e-commerce and online taxi hailing sectors have also crossed over into the OTT space in recent years, making the market landscape even more complex.

At the same time, most countries in Southeast Asia are lagging behind in terms of digital infrastructure levels. Of 600 million Southeast Asian households, only 50 million have access to stable and high-speed broadband services, which is undoubtedly a huge challenge for OTT service providers that rely on Internet broadband to deliver content. How to provide high quality streaming media without latency and buffering in different regions has been a challenge for OTT service providers.

How to properly understand and evaluate the development opportunities in Southeast Asia OTT market? How to follow the industry regulatory policies of different countries? W.Media will focus on the above topics and invite industry experts to share the most cutting-edge industry information and deepest market insights.

东南亚OTT市场总体上处于快速增长阶段,据Dataxis发布的报告,东南亚地区SVOD订阅用户从2017到2022会一直保持上升趋势,预计2022年SVOD用户将增长到620万,移动订户预计到2022年将增长到60%。与此同时,东南亚的SVOD市场收入预计将达到3.9亿美元。

东南亚市场虽然吸引人,但这里有各种不同的文化、宗教、消费者的喜好,对很多人来说,还有强大的政府管理。并且,东南亚OTT市场存在多元化参与主体,处于激烈的竞争中——包括一些传统媒体机构也积极参与其中。其中,以Netflix为代表的跨国机构通过强化本地化内容、推行低资费移动端产品等手段,使得市场竞争更加激烈。而在众多区域OTT玩家和本国服务商之外,近年来来自电商和在线叫车领域的数字巨头也跨界进入OTT领域,这使得市场格局更为复杂。

与此同时,东南亚多数国家的数字化基础设施水平落后。在6亿东南亚家庭中,只有5000万人能获得稳定高速的宽带服务,对于依赖互联网宽带传送内容的OTT服务商而言,这无疑是一个巨大的难题。如何在不同地区提供无延迟、无缓冲的高质量流媒体,一直是各OTT服务商面临的难题。

如何正确认识和评估东南亚OTT市场的发展机会?如何遵循不同国家的行业监管政策?如何通过技术创新提升用户体验?W.Media将聚焦上述议题,邀请行业专家分享最前沿的行业信息和最深刻的市场洞察。

Inside Asia – Challenges Faced by China OTT Platforms

Event Summary

OTT(Over the top) is rapidly changing the way consumers consume content and their preferences globally. In Asia, subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) is expected to reach 470 million households by 2022.

China, in particular, as the country with the largest number of OTT subscribers in the world, is showing strong and sustained growth, with total SVOD revenue in the Chinese market expected to reach 94.8% of traditional TV channel revenue by 2022, meaning that traditional TV media and Internet TV programs, will be neck and neck in terms of program revenue. Meanwhile, cutting-edge technologies such as AI, 5G and IoT continue to empower OTT, thus driving this growth trend.

However, as more players enter the market and consumer demand for content becomes increasingly diverse and experience needs highly standardized, it becomes increasingly difficult to differentiate from the competition, whether it is broadcasters delivering open internet content (OTT) services, franchised OTT providers or telcos delivering online video for commercial profit. From programming to pricing, the differences between services are minimal. As a result, video streaming quality and exceptional user experience across all devices is becoming a key differentiator. This means that these companies must ensure the best quality video delivery and a fast and uninterrupted experience on all devices, anytime, anywhere, and do so in a cost-effective manner.

So, how do you achieve these goals? W.Media will invite experts to discuss these topics in depth. This will be an insightful, bi-lingual event (English/Chinese), so register now!

OTT的发展正在迅速改变着全球消费者内容消费的方式以及偏好。在亚洲,订阅视频点播(SVOD)预计到2022年将达到4.7亿户。

特别是中国,作为世界上OTT用户数量最多的国家,正表现出强劲和持续的增长,预计到2022年,中国市场的SVOD总收入将达到传统电视频道收入的94.8%,这意味着传统电视媒体和互联网电视节目,在节目收入方面将不分伯仲。与此同时,AI、5G、IoT等前沿科技持续为OTT赋能,从而推动了这种增长的趋势。

然而,随着越来越多玩家的入场,以及消费者对内容需求的日益多元化和对体验需求的高标准化,无论是交付开放互联网内容 (OTT) 服务的广播公司、专营 OTT 提供商或是交付在线视频以谋求商业利润的电信公司,要从竞争中脱颖而出变得越来越困难。从节目编排乃至定价,各种服务之间的区别微乎其微。因此,在所有设备上的视频流媒体质量和非凡的用户体验正逐渐成为关键的差异化优势。这意味着这些企业必须确保在所有设备上随时随地实现最佳质量的视频交付和快速且无中断的体验,并且还要以经济有效的方式达成这一目标

那么,要如何实现上述目标呢?围绕上述议题,W.Media将邀请相关专家进行深入探讨。这将是一个富有洞察力的双语言活动(英语/中文),现在就注册吧!

Middle East Cloud & Datacenter Market Insights 2021

Event Summary

The Middle East region is strongly preparing itself for the post oil era and most importantly it’s going full throttle to unlock its full potential of becoming a technology ready region and here are some points to prove that: –

1) Countries in the Middle East are looking to improve their digital economies through smart city projects, which is fueling the demand for edge computing and data center deployment. The IoT revenue in the Middle East is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 15% by 2025. Also, the adoption of 5G networks has commenced in the region. The Middle East Data center market is expected to cross 3% in revenue by 2025. 

 

2) Demand for Data Centres has been underpinned by technological advances and an increasing adoption of cloud-based services. As AI, ML & 5G trends play out, the levels of data produced, stored and analysed will grow exponentially, which will drive significant demand for Data Centres.

 

3) The Middle East Cloud application market is expected to grow by USD 4.5 Billion by 2024 at a CAGR of 17.5%. Localisation of Data Centres will be required going forward for the Middle East thus it will become a key market for cloud based on-demand computing service providers.

 

The above points prove that yes, the middle east region is adopting fact to tech and adoption is high but there are still challenges as well as opportunities on the road to become a technology leader like: –

1) Many organizations in the Middle East believe that their digitization process is taking much longer and many feel that their organizations would benefit from hybrid cloud adoption to overcome operational  & talent challenges.

2) The Middle Eastern region in general has ambient conditions which can take a major toll on the efficiency of data centres. Two of the main factors include temperature and dust which has a negative effect of efficiency. Building of Operationally efficient and localized hyperscale & sustainable data centers is an urgent need for the Middle East region.

3) There is a huge skills gap for IT personnel in the region. More often these roles are outsourced and at times may not be available locally. The region has to make some concerted efforts in ensuring that these technical skills are nurtured and in turn work towards a stronger industry.

4) Security practitioners in the Middle East are concerned with data privacy and security, ITO practitioners are interested in operational efficiency, and CEOs and CFOs promote cost savings. So how can these key stakeholders meet half-way – that’s the question of the hour.

As a tech enthusiast In order to make sure you are well versed with these updates W.media has created the largest platform for Middle East tech enthusiasts to join together and get insights from the top experts of the world.

The Asia-Pacific region is leading the global datacenter industry with a Compound Annual Growth Rate (“CAGR”) of 12% and is expected to reach US$28 billion in 2021, becoming the world’s largest datacenter market. At the top of this wave is the two largest economies of China and Southeast Asia.

In China, the industry is developing rapidly, owning the second-largest number of datacenters in the world, after the United States, with an annual growth rate of more than 20% both in terms of quantity and scale. At an industry level, 5G, IoT, the industrial Internet and digital transformation abounds with waves of good news, propelled by the “new infrastructure” policy. From 2021 to 2022, China’s datacenter industry will usher in an outbreak period of landing and production.

In the Southeast Asia (“SEA”), market growth is expected to hit CAGR of 13% from 2019 to 2024. Amongst SEA, Singapore ranks third in the global datacentre market of 38 countries and is the only mature market. Vietnam, on the other hand, recently announced its 2025 National Digital Transformation Plan and 2030 Development Direction, whereas Malaysia has developed a “dual-core” datacenter deployment plan. Meanwhile, the Thailand government is strengthening domestic communication and network infrastructure to support the construction of hyper-large datacenters.

Such rapid growth and expansion of the Asian datacenter industry has increased competition amongst new entrants. However, whilst many will be enticed by the huge market potential and opportunities, whether it is the Chinese companies expanding to SEA or others looking to enter the Chinese market, they are set to face steep challenges in the various countries. To name a few; geographic landscape, imperfect infrastructure, policy constraints, business culture differences, and geopolitical instability all pose significant risks. 

Hence, W.Media is convening datacenter experts to offer an insider peek into the world’s two fastest-growing markets. Join us as we hear from industry leaders on the current situation, opportunities and challenges of the China and SEA market, and what you can expect in 2021 and beyond.

Hong Kong Datacenters: Market Insights 2021

Event Summary

Datacenters serve as a pillar of Hong Kong’s industries–ensuring the operation and growth of the city’s finance and logistics services. Indeed, the digital transformation enabled by these centers is forecasted to add US$9 billion to Hong Kong’s GDP in the next three years–a year on year increase of 0.5%. So while Hong Kong is actually below the global and APAC average for automated processes deployed in the workplace, these figures are a sign of change to come.

In fact, Hong Kong has been quicker to adapt to new technologies now that 89% of the workforce is subject to flexible working arrangements in lockdown. The 5G, AI, Cloud, and IoT industries contributed only 5% to Hong Kong’s GDP in 2019 but are expected to grow an astonishing 60% by next year. This rapid proliferation of data-driven tech is only going to increase the demand on local data centers.

One of the big challenges facing Hong Kong will be retrofitting it’s legacy datacenters to accommodate these new requirements. How can sustainable technology be deployed effectively on the hyperscale, co-location and even edge network level? Even cloud native companies are being forced to reconsider their current systems in order to reduce limitations on their technology and strengthen their overall security.

Data is being generated and transmitted at a higher rate than ever, so where and how this data is stored bears huge implications on Hong Kong’s economic health and resilience.

W.Media is convening all of Hong Kong’s experts on data center management, sustainability and security to give you an inside look into one of the world’s most unique markets. Hear from industry leaders themselves on what other APAC markets can learn from HK’s data centers, and what you can expect in 2021 and beyond.

Japan Datacenters: Market Insights 2021

Event Summary

With a sustained CAGR of 3.7% between now and 2025, Japan’s Data Center Market is poised to reshape the nation’s entire economy. Increased speculation from foreign companies and accelerated adoption of digital technologies across public and private sectors are the underlying driving factors to this rapid evolution.

This data gold rush is taking place mainly around the Tokyo metropolitan area, with Osaka close behind. Local systems integrators like Fujitsu, Hitachi and Mitsubishi have been integral in making ICT the largest industry in the Japanese economy, and now global players like Equinix are moving into Japan’s data center sphere to meet the correlating surge in demand for cloud services. 

The Japanese government signed a deal with AWS to migrate all HR systems to the cloud by 2025, a sign of the cross-industry embrace of cloud technologies currently transforming the country.  But while the data center market is experiencing this unprecedented investment, there is simultaneously a growing call for such investment to be sustainable. Japanese Data Centers are pioneering renewable energy and energy-efficient power and cooling solutions 

The growth of IoT and remote work is driving the cloud services market to an incredible 15% CAGR, but in order to properly capitalise on this explosion of data it’s important to scrutanise where the data is being held: the data centers themselves.

Our second show in our “Japan Market Insights Series”, this event will focus on the Japanese data center market: its business prospects, technological breakthroughs, and future trends to be aware of.

日本のデータセンター市場は、現在から2025年の間に持続的に3.7%のCAGRを達成し、日本の経済全体を再形成する構えです。こうした急速な進化の背景には、増加している外資系企業の数及びデジタル技術の官民に普及の加速があります。

このデータゴールドラッシュは、主に首都圏周辺及び大阪中心の関西の地域で行われており、富士通、日立、三菱電気などの国内システム統合会社は、日本国内の経済を最大の成長する役割をしてあり、エクイニクスのようなグローバル企業も日本のデータセンター市場に進出してクラウドサービスの需要の相互増加に対応しています。

日本政府はAWSと共に2025年までにすべてのHRシステムをクラウドに移転する契約を締結しましたが、これは現在日本を変化させているクラウド技術の産業間の包容のシグナルと判断するのができます。 しかし、データセンター市場が前例がない投資を経験している中、投資が持続可能であるべきだというニーズが同時に増えています。 日本データセンターは再生可能エネルギー及び冷却ソリューションを積極的にリードしています。

IoTと遠隔作業の成長はクラウドサービス市場を驚くべき数値である15%CAGRに導いていますが、このような爆発的なデータを適切に活用するためには、データが保管される空間、すなわち、データセンター自体を具体化することが重要であります。

日本市場における今後の展望」の2回目であるこのイベントは、日本のデータセンター市場、すなわち、ビジネスの展望、技術革新及び今後の動向に焦点を合わせて進行する予定です。

W.Mediaはこの全てのテーマについて、より一層の情報を得るため全ての専門家をここに集めました。 皆さんが日本市場への新たな参入を考える専門家、または現在の立場を広げようとする専門家であれば、急速に発展するデニターセンター産業に対する新たな洞察力を提供する意義深いイベントになると思います。

Digital Economy in Vietnam: Dragon Unleashed

Event Summary

Vietnam is the fastest-growing digital economy in Asia Pacific at a rate of 38% per year. The country is making efforts to push up digital transformation as a key strategy to boost the national economy. As a result, its digital sector is expected to contribute 30% to Vietnam’s economy by 2030. 

Vietnam’s digital economy in 2019 was valued at $12 billion, making up 5% of the nation’s GDP, or four times higher than 2015. The figure is predicted to reach $43 billion by 2025, with the fields of e-commerce, e-tourism, e-communication and e-hailing leading the way. Will Vietnam’s economy speed up to rank 1st in Southeast Asia?

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Vietnam Government has applied policy and regulation encouraging enterprises to apply technologies in their workplace, especially with sectors that are thought to be slow to adopt digitalisation like public services, hospitals and healthcare, schools and education organisations. 

Many technologies and cloud players are also giving away free usage for enterprises to start educating them on how to improve their remote processes and create brand awareness through digital transformation. But this raises the question if Vietnam currently has a strong digital infrastructure enough to power the increasing demand and speed up digital transformation.

Cybersecurity is also a vital role that the Vietnamese Government cannot neglect. An alliance of Vietnamese enterprises, supported by Vietnam Ministry of Communication, called CoMeet was recently established with the purpose of providing tailor-made solutions for online meetings replacing Zoom. How could these initiatives speed up digital transformation?

These advancements are an extremely good sign for the Vietnam market, providing the local players are capable enough to survive on their own and compete against the international brands. 

How can Government and businesses drive this digital evolution? What are the challenges and how can we overcome these? Will the Vietnam dragons be unleashed after this pandemic?

Join us at the Digital Economy in Vietnam: Dragon Unleashed on to explore how Vietnam’s digital economy is rising up and find out how your business can soar in the digital age.

Taiwan Cloud & Datacenter Market Insights

Event Summary

The explosive momentum that the Taiwanese cloud market saw up in 2020 is expected to continue well into 2021, 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!

在COVID-19抗疫期間數位化需求的推動下,台灣雲市場在2020年出現的爆炸性增長勢頭預計將持續到2021年。

 台北已經成為這種快速數位化擴張的中心–實施了在市區範圍內建設完整的5G網絡和添加額外數據中心的計劃。此外,政府也將目光投向外界,尋求國內外投資,以保持其在該地區的競爭力。其中,近期谷歌選擇了斗六市作為他們在台灣的第三個數據中心的選址。

 雖然亞洲一些新興市場,如印尼和泰國等在雲端市場上有了驚人的進展,但普遍企業還是傾向於能夠提供更穩定及可靠的電力網絡和正常運行時間的成熟經濟體與國家。由於美國和亞洲之間有多條深海電纜經過台灣,該島也為美國科技巨頭提供了眾多的地理優勢。近期,台灣與多個西方國家所簽訂的跨國協議,更是彰顯了台灣是在5G網絡正盛行的亞太地區裏的一個重要合作夥伴。

 在國家層面上,台灣正在投資五個IT領域:技術和數位化、國防、綠能、可再生能源和生物科技。具體來說,這涉及到招募80名網絡安全人員成立國家團隊,和打造另一個可與新竹科學園區相媲美的 “亞洲矽谷 “等舉措。

 這些行動將如何影響私人企業?台灣的數位化也將會影響人民的生活方式,從醫療到城市規劃多方面等。本次活動將聚焦台灣雲計算和數據中心行業最引人注目的趨勢。即刻 登入與了解更多吧!
