The Cloud & Data Chapter aims to build capabilities of industry by facilitating awareness of new technologies, related standards and access to new markets. In addition, it seeks to enable organisations to develop a competitive advantage by harnessing the power of cloud, data and analytics.
More importantly, it hopes to develop a vibrant ecosystem of providers and users from related industries for the industry at large to thrive.
Services 4.0 is the next paradigm shift in the future of services. Now, more than ever, businesses must transform to meet changing customer needs quickly, innovate and create new value to stay relevant and differentiate themselves from competitors.
ICT solution providers are a crucial part of the equation, and the solutions they provide must be scalable and flexible. To achieve this, Cloud is the way to go.
The Cloud & Data Chapter therefore aspires to help SGTech member companies leverage Cloud as a platform or utility to grow their business over the next 3 years.
