Singapore is ranked the second-most network-ready country in the world and the first in Asia. By 2015, Singapore will see a surge of data-driven acceleration due to a surge in cloud services, mobile content, personal content, social media and big data demands from sectors like financial services, healthcare and education.
Organizations that plan well can adjust to rapid growth in computing capacity without requiring more data center floor space, cooling or power. Together with the growing cloud computing adoption, this will also provide relief for the evolving demands on data centers and as the software-defined technology becomes more established, an increasing proportion of data center functions will migrate to specialist or hybrid cloud providers, enabling organizations to make use of the same data center space in the future to generate significant cost savings and competitive business advantages.
Themed “Transforming Data Centers through Software Defined Infrastructure”, the 10th Annual Data Center Summit will bring together top IT industry leaders in the region to address the latest developments, emerging trends, challenges and key success drivers in optimizing data center efficiency, agility and ROI. This Summit gathers 180 senior IT decision makers from across industries and a first-class speaker panel from the region for a day of insightful presentations, case studies, best practices, incisive panel discussions and one-to-one meetings.
“Good conference that provides numerous case studies from various industries”
Jeffrey, Keng Siang Hong. Head Of Data Centre Support, National Institute of Education Singapore (NIE)
“The event was an excellent platform to exchange experiences, good practices, and lessons learnt. Able to find out more from my fellow IT professionals, in terms of challenges they encountered, and potential / probable solutions that I can consider to adopt to solve similar challenges in my organization”
Lee Siew Kit,Vice President, IT Services, SATS Limited
“The 2013 Annual Asian Data Centre Summit was a real success, the agenda was different from many traditional mission-critical events, and the caliber of the presenters kept the audience engaged, even at the end of a long day. I do lots of these events and typically towards the end of the day, the energy levels and more specifically the attendance level drop significantly. However I didn’t notice any significant difference between the headcount at the beginning of the day and the end of the day. That Is the sign of a good event.”
