Smart Data Centre Summit

8th September, 2022

V Hotel Dubai, Curio Collection by Hilton

Cloud has become the de facto standard for technology innovation. As a result, enterprises in the Middle East are rapidly adopting a cloud-first approach to enable business transformation, and cloud investments are outstripping on-premise spending.

The local presence of all major public service providers has accelerated the pace of adoption, especially in the post-pandemic new normal. The critical role cloud plays in digital transformation initiatives is expected to increase in the coming years. For businesses grappling with unpredictable environments, the cloud offers many compelling characteristics such as flexibility and scalability.

CXO Insight ME’s Cloud Connect Conference and Awards 2022 will discuss the key trends in cloud computing and bring together thought leaders to provide technology advice, deep learning, and practical solutions. We will also recognise top cloud computing use cases from end-users and compelling products and services from vendors for the first time.

If you are involved in the cloud, you can’t miss this event that will define the future of cloud computing.
