Cloud Computing is a form of internet-based computing where the user stores and processes data over the Internet on demand, instead of the user’s computer.Cloud Computing technology – which is regarded as one of the most disruptive online technologies today – offers local companies both new productivity tools to optimise their overseas operations, and also new business models for providing services to clients.

Studies have shown that an estimated 78% of Small businesses in the USA will adopt Cloud solutions by 2020, up from 37% in 2015. 
Why are so many businesses adapting their operations to Cloud, and how are they making this transition? More importantly, how does adapting to the Cloud improve the capabilities of businesses to internationalise?

Join us as we demystify the concept of the Cloud and simplify its benefits for companies looking to scale internationally.

Seminar Highlights: 
  • Updates on the latest technology trends in the USA
  • Sharing by Microsoft, Qualcomm, HRM Labs, Boon Software and other companies on the benefits of moving onto the cloud and its relevance to local companies looking to internationalise
  • Technology showcase on various cloud solutions that enable companies to simplify and manage international operations more effectively
  • Sharing by a local company on their cloud adoption journey

Who Should Attend: 
  • Business owners, Business development managers of SMEs and key decision makers with interest to learn more about technology.
