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!

Trending in South Asia: Edge Computing & Digitalization

Event Summary

According to McKinsey & Company, India is the second-fastest digital adopter among 17 major digital economies, which include South Korea, Singapore, Australia, Japan, Indonesia and more. Companies that innovate and digitize rapidly will be better placed to take advantage of India’s large, connected market, which could include up to 700 million smartphone users and 840 million internet users by 2023. In the context of rapidly improving technology and falling data costs, technology-enabled business models could become pervasive over the next decade. That will likely create significant economic value.

With more Indian enterprises striving to go digital, the increased speed and bandwidth of 5G networks will drive a new round of transformation across India. The Indian IoT market is expected to touch $9 billion by 2020, and this will contribute as a key driver to the edge data center market in India.

Join us on the 18th of December as we dive deeper into the market trends and drivers of India’s digital economy and the impact on data centers.
