JOHOR, MALAYSIA, Dec 10, 2015 - (ACN Newswire) - International consulting firm BroadGroup has announced the launch of Datacloud South East Asia, the networking and deal making forum for IT and Cloud Infrastructure executives, investors and innovative solutions providers, which will be hosted for the third time in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, 6-7 April, 2016.
The South East Asia region's attractiveness as a data center location relies on a mix of lower resource costs and taxes and incentives offered by inward investment agencies, often with the availability of a pool of highly educated workforce and good standards of governance.
Malaysia has moved remarkably quickly over the last 2 years to establish itself as a new data hub. In terms of metric space, it is approaching the same size as Switzerland's data center market. The country is now poised, through well advanced development plans in the southern state of Iskandar to attract a new eco system of cloud and technology infrastructure services.
Datacloud South East Asia forum is a unique opportunity because:
-It brings together enterprises, investors, data center and cloud service providers and telcos to exchange and promote new business opportunities with a highly targeted audience.
-The forum is very timely and highlights the unique value of locating or outsourcing data center, cloud and IT infrastructure across the important and fast growing South East Asian region.
-It is the only regional forum and appeals to both users and outsourcers, with companies who are offering an exceptional platform of services and technologies to support them in the efficient management and exploitation of their IT assets.
The region is already experiencing significant growth in the deployment of mission critical facilities and offers new business, outsourcing, investment, hosting, colocation and cloud opportunities. BroadGroup forecasts growth of 43% across the combined markets of Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam through to the end of 2017.
"The Datacloud brand has achieved recognition as an exceptional forum for content, networking and deal making in data center and cloud businesses," commented Philip Low, managing director at BroadGroup.
