APAC is where some of the world’s strongest AI spending growth will be found, at 72.9% CAGR through 2018. There are many drivers for this, including growing demand for greater business insights, improving productivity, and harnessing the ever-growing data volumes (APAC cloud traffic by 2021 is forecast to be just behind North America). Accelerating the potential are the advances in cloud storage and infrastructure, along with...

Singapore is the most cloud-ready region in the Asia-Pacific (APAC). The city state overtook previous number one Hong Kong in the latest iteration of Asia Cloud Computing Association’s (ACCA) Cloud Readiness Index (CRI). The CRI, which aims to assess APAC markets' readiness to adopt cloud computing, found that Singapore scored strongly in broadband quality, cybersecurity, regulation and business sophistication. The shift of Singapore to top position was...

Virtualisation in technology is nothing new. Services, platforms, infrastructure – all are now available on-demand, scalable, pay as you go. But the concept of virtual, software-defined networks (SDN)? By 2024 the SDN market is expected to reach $88 billion. What’s fuelling the projected increase? The growth in cloud computing and data solutions. Global IP traffic is predicted to grow “3-fold from 2014 to 2019, a compound annual...

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the biggest data shake-up in years. While it’s EU-enacted, its influence extends across the world. Any company providing services into the EU must comply. Compliance also extends to any company which gathers personal data from within the EU and processes it elsewhere. Naturally, GDPR will have far-reaching impact on APAC, a region home to around half the world’s internet users. GDPR...

Asia Pacific is one of the world’s fastest growing regions for internet users, growing at an estimated 8% per year. This speed in take-up (the global average is 7%) is only matched by its diversity of reach across countries. Reports estimate by the end of last year, over half the world’s online population would be APAC residents. Naturally, countries with the widest internet coverage will see the...

Once upon a time, the concept of satellites in space would have been limited to science fiction books. The idea that data centres could be virtualised into the cloud? Similarly far-fetched. Fast-forward to today, and these former pipedreams are staple parts of the technology landscape. That’s why there’s now serious discussion regarding data centres being located in the Earth’s orbit. Of course, there are plenty of hurdles...

When it comes to computer development, Moore’s Law held firm for 50+ years. More recently, some feel it’s slowing down – or even dead. Here’s the thing: many of the challenges facing the world won’t wait for Moore’s Law to catch up. Enter quantum computing. The reason why quantum computing is so transformative is because of its ability to create simulations. With unprecedented levels of scale and complexity....

The world is on the brink of a new age in computing. Quantum computers have the potential to solve problems that ‘on a classical computer… would have taken the life of the universe to solve’. That’s according to Todd Holmdahl. The head of Microsoft’s quantum team is one of many analysts who expect real-world quantum computing applications within five years. Finding the answers to these problems requires...
