Industry 4.0 is here and it’s happening fast
The world wants, needs and expects instant access to apps, data and technology. From any device in any location and with baked-in security. Data centres, over to you.
…you know it’s not that easy.
Today’s tech-fuelled transformation era is putting traditional data centres under unprecedented pressure. This pressure is coming from businesses, users and consumers – from every physical, virtual and cloud-centric angle.
The answer is next-generation infrastructure supporting a digital ecosystem. However, the question is how to make it happen.
(that’s where Digital Centre comes in)

ASIA CLOUD COMPUTING ASSOCIATION
The global market for cloud computing started growing in early 2010 – and hasn’t looked back since. Spending on cloud services continues to grow at compounded annual rates, and the industry has generated millions of new jobs worldwide. New innovation is being created every day with the potential and power that the cloud gives to everyone – enterprises, small businesses, and the individual. Cloud computing, once considered as a possible fad, has proven itself clearly to be a new and major trend in computing. Going forward, it is also very likely to prove itself a major game-changer for businesses.
While several global industry consortia, including the Asia Cloud Computing Association (ACCA), are actively involved in making cloud computing a reality by addressing the needs for common platforms, the ACCA is the only one doing so with a focus on the opportunities and issues in Asia Pacific (APAC).
