UAE firms ‘set for major shift to cloud'

DUBAI, October 8, 2015

A phenomenal technological transformation is taking place in the next 12 to 18 months across industries in the UAE’s private and public sectors, predominantly facilitated by dynamic ‘cloud computing’ solutions, said an industry expert.

Cloud computing facilitates total transparency in the UAE’s business ecosystem, a paradigm shift in the way the business is conducted, said Dilip Rahulan, executive chairman of Pacific Control Systems (PCS), the UAE-headquartered global leader in Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions.

He was speaking at a conference titled "Cloud Computing - Transform Your Business with the Cloud" in Dubai, UAE. The conference aimed at creating a road map for leveraging ‘Cloud Computing’ to business advantage.

Addressing an audience of 150 delegates from different industry sectors across the UAE, Rahulan said: “Cloud computing is an emerging, active infrastructure that enables Government, business and people to transform their current business to digital business creating new paradigm shifts in the way service delivery takes place. The cloud infrastructure also needs security to be dynamic in terms of its scalability and elasticity, and be capable of enabling concepts that are able to deal with large growth syndromes.”

“Fundamentally, ‘the cloud’ is involved in facilitating infrastructural and service transformation around us. Everything in the world is being wired and censored. This is a wake-up call in terms of adopting changes in line with people’s experience with technology. We are facilitating this transformation, having partnered with the world’s leading technology companies to deliver our cloud offerings,” he added.

The global conference covered a range of topics that include: ‘Accelerating deployment of cloud based applications, that is appropriate to business needs’; ‘Responding faster to new business opportunities using cloud based solutions’; ‘Effortlessly integrating public cloud services and on-premises applications to attain robust IT infrastructure’; ‘Extending IaaS & SaaS applications using enterprise-grade cloud platform’; ‘Leveraging IaaS & SaaS to enhance efficiency, productivity and innovate business process’; and ‘Developing new aftermarket revenue models’.

PCS, a world leader in managed services, is a pioneer in the convergence of networked computing and large scale data management with real time machine intelligence and is driving the integration of physical and virtual worlds. – TradeArabia News Service
