IDC Cloud & Datacenter Roadshow

Leveraging the Economics and Sustainability of Cloud in the Digital Era

Overview

Organizations across the region have reached the conclusion that the clearest path to cloud lies in having a flexible and resilient IT model that enables them to ensure business continuity and deploy their IT strategies. IDC's latest research shows that 46% of organizations in the META region plan to significantly increase their investments in infrastructure transformation capabilities (the digital infrastructure that enables cloud, software-defined solutions, etc.) over the next 12–18 months.

Cloud-centric operating models have grown to become integral components of modernizing IT environments across the Middle East. Those organizations that adopt resilient cloud-based models are perfectly placed to transform the application of technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning into on-the-ground competitive advantages that can be leveraged to execute their visions for the future.

The 2023 edition of the IDC Cloud and Datacenter Roadshow will examine the current state of the Qatar cloud market. Regional and international experts will explore topics such as cloud management, security, governance, orchestration, sustainability, and customer engagement as they present proven strategies for implementing digital-first business models, accelerating development and delivery, and enabling innovation.
