The data center has often been regarded as a bastion for consistency, reliability and stability but the introduction of software-defined has entirely transformed the way how networks in DCs function, with virtualization now a key foundation to cloud computing, servers and infrastructure. Is moving towards a software-defined driven DC anytime in the near future in Southeast Asia and how can operators ensure that all of the different components of a DC are working together as one big family in a trouble-free environment?

Today's cloud and tomorrow's IoT are driving explosive demand for data center services, which in turn require new data center stock to be made available, and building new facilities is not as simple as flicking a switch as the public might sometimes be led to believe; bricks and mortar require time, planning and money. We ask our panel of experts, each involved in this complex business, how they are coping. Where in SE Asia is the next data center investment hot spot and why? What are the main regional challenges today in digital real estate development? Is there adequate financing available for these types of projects?
In some companies the CIO role includes head of business transformation, head of business process change or management, head of service delivery and even head of supply chain. In others they are being called chief technology officers (CTOs), and in some cases the role of CIO is divided between two or more people. How has your role changed? We ask CIOs from the region.
With minimal up-front capital investments and flexible and easy-to-adopt deployment options in your mind, you also need to address the ever-changing capacity needs, ensure that Business Continuity needs are truly met, with SLA’s that align with both the commercial needs of the stakeholders and the realistic delivery capability of the provider. You can really make it happen! This session will focus on how you can transition your DR to the Cloud simple and pain-free in the most heterogeneous of environments.

Our panel of experts explore the challenge of what availability means to data center end-users and operators in today's rapidly changing environments. Does a software-defined world no longer need highly engineered environments? Is the Tier Classification system still relevant? Is software eating the world and dispensing with need for costly redundant systems?
Mayank Kapoor, Industry Principal - APAC Data Center and Cloud Computing , Frost & Sullivan
Hybrid IT is fast becoming the new normal across organisations in Asia-Pacific. With the increasing utilization of data centers and cloud services across the Asia Pacific region, companies have gradually updated or upgraded their existing IT systems, giving rise to the Hybrid IT environment. Frost & Sullivan research shows that more than half of enterprises surveyed last year are planning to move to a Hybrid environment over the next 12 to 18 months. This session will explore why Hybrid IT is gaining mass adoption, what enterprise customers are looking for and Frost & Sullivan's view on a true Hybrid IT portfolio.

We ask our panel of technology end-users how they are navigating the increasingly fragmented world of cloud platforms. What has been your experience of public cloud? What's more important, interoperability or security? How have you managed to scale your business through technology effectively?
