Saudi Arabia: Datacentres are rapidly booming in Saudi Arabia, the second-largest Arabian country, because of digital and technological progress. The datacentre market is expected to exceed $1.77 billion by 2027, propelled by multinational corporations expanding their cloud regions in the country. The cloud services market alone is expected to reach nearly $2.4 billion by 2026.
Consequently, Asia-Pacific’s most anticipated Datacentre & Cloud Infrastructure Summit (DCCI) will take place on November 29–30 in Riyadh at the JW Marriott Hotel.
The summit will gather the world’s best entities, including Ministries, National Banks, Insurance Companies, F&B, IT Enterprises, Sports Federations, Government-owned Universities, Real Estate Giants, Electricity Department, and many others. It will present a platform like none other for the Datacentre & Cloud professionals.
In a statement issued post confirming his participation announcement as a speaker, Mr. Fahad Bedaiwi, Executive Vice President and Head, Facilities Management & Engineering, Saudi National Bank, stated that, “Going beyond expectations and consistently delivering progressive solutions is something that keeps Saudi National Bank ahead of the future. Amidst this constant evolution with technology especially datacentre and cloud, it has become our responsibility to lead by example in leveraging these resources for more advanced offerings. At DCCI we are expecting to have game changing discussions that can change the course of industries for a better tomorrow.”
While the platform will bind the different sectors together and give way to a holistic approach for datacentre & cloud landscape upliftment, the organizing body – Tradepass, will host 300+ delegates including CEOs, CIOs, CTOs, CISOs, CDOs, Heads of Information Technology Operations, Datacentre Facilities Managers & Engineers, VPs, GMs, Heads of Cloud, Security, and many other influential profiles from the Kingdom’s leading organizations.
Another key speaker for the summit, Mr. Abdullah H. Alfahaid, CITO, Ajlan & Bros Holding Group KSA, has expressed his splendid vision while inviting the delegates.
“Join us to explore the limitless possibilities at DCCI, as we can’t wait to welcome you for futuristic discussions on digital transformation and cloud automation”, Mr. Alfahaid further added.
Taking into account the great volume of work and the massive achievements of DCCI for key markets in Asia-Pacific, the platform’s upcoming edition in Saudi Arabia has gained strong support from Invest Saudi and ISACA Riyadh Chapter. While Invest Saudi has always promoted the Kingdom as a world-class investment destination, the latter has always given full support in terms of information systems governance. It fairly explains the importance of their participation at the summit, which’s also going to uncover new investment and IT governance opportunities in the datacentre & cloud landscape.
In the race to close more deals with the key profiles at the exhibition hall, organizations like Huawei, DETASAD, AlJammaz Technologies, CommScope, Sunbird Software, Legrand Data Center Solutions, Aksa Power Generation Co., and Sana Engineering have already reserved their booths to showcase their best solutions.
The CIO from Saudi Pro League, the highest division of association football in the Saudi league system, Dr. Ahmed Althuhaibi, gave a special message to all the delegates coming to attend the summit: “I am deeply embedded in the world of digital transformation and technological advancement. The summit represents a pivotal gathering point for thought leaders and industry specialists from an array of sectors. I am excited to share my insights and learn from other esteemed participants. This summit is more than just a meeting of minds – it’s an opportunity for us to shape the future of datacentres and cloud services in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, driving us closer to achieving our vision for 2030. I anticipate thought-provoking discussions, innovative solutions, and strategic collaborations to emerge from this event and look forward to contributing to its success.”
When asked about the recent move towards Saudi Arabia, organizer & CEO of Tradepass, Mr. Sudhir Ranjan Jena stated that, “The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is where the future lies as the nation is giving way to the most advanced digital developments, including the most futuristic cities of the world. Therefore, while expanding DCCI’s footprint we were in no doubt that the platform would be of utmost benefit not just to the many stakeholders across KSA’s digital ecosystem but also to the nation and its Saudi Vision 2030.”
