Singapore Cloud & Datacenter Digital Summit

Event Summary

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. The magnified focus on Data Centers and sustainability underscores the government’s dedication to Cloud Computing. 

Singapore’s “Services 4.0 Plan”–detailed in IMDA’s digital services report 2018–is in full effect. With the nation’s characteristic flair for infrastructure roll-outs, Cloud Native Architecture remains the focal point of IMDA’s digital roadmap. The Financial Services Industry(FSI), Ecommerce, and Government’s technology stack are the key drivers of Cloud in the nation. The scalability benefits alone have proved enormously attractive and pushed these sectors into adopting Cloud service delivery models. 

Cybersecurity sits at the very heart of a well-designed Cloud Architecture, user confidence in the infrastructure remains crucial to the continued adoption. Fundamentally, the question of fortifying Cloud systems in order to fully gain industry and consumer confidence, and secure the growth of Cloud, will be debated. 

Join us at the Singapore Cloud & Datacenter Digital Summit as we bring the top 200 IT and data center professionals to hear from industry leaders and new entrants on what to expect from a hub market, the downstream opportunities to the edge markets, and the innovation of technology in the space of Cloud Computing, connectivity, cybersecurity and data centers.
