Thailand’s cloud and data center market could be on the verge of greatness. As the second-largest economy in ASEAN continues to improve its international connectivity, multinational companies are eyeing it for investment. But as these improvements are made and more of the population goes online, broadband quality and energy sustainability become increasingly pressing challenges for the market to overcome.
With 61% of Thailand’s gross domestic product expected to be digitalised by 2022, and 95% of the population with broadband access by 2023, this market is quickly becoming one of the most interesting case studies in the region.
What is in store for Thailand’s cloud and data center industries?
This November, join the W.Media team and hundreds of IT Professionals for our Annual Cloud & Data Center Convention to find out how you can be a part of the country’s digital future.
