- 5th DCD Converged Indonesia Conference and Expo to be held in Jakarta
- Double-digit growth expected for data centre, outsourcing, and cloud industries
LONDON-headquartered DatacenterDynamics (DCD) has announced that it will hold its 5th DCD Converged Indonesia Conference and Expo on April 7 at the Ritz Carlton Mega Kuningan, Jakarta.
The event will focus on the growth and innovations in the data centre industry in Indonesia, and will provide insights into overcoming challenges by bringing together over 450 experts in the IT, data centre, and business sectors, DCD said in a statement.
DCD is a subsidiary of the DCD Group, a global business-to-business media and publishing company.
“Indonesia as a data centre market is relatively young by global standards, but looking at the voracious appetite of its large population for technology and Internet services, the country has [great potential],” said DCD Group Asia Pacific general manager Vincent Liew.
“According to our data, Indonesia will experience double-digit growth in data centres, outsourcing services, and cloud investments – one of the highest growth rates in the world.
“We forecast that the country’s data centre industry will be valued at around US$280 million in 2016,” he added.
One of the key drivers of this growth is Regulation 82 (2012) regarding electronic systems and transaction management, where electronic systems providers have to run data and disaster recovery centres on Indonesian soil.
Alongside the rise of Internet usage and web companies, this created a surge in demand for data centres, which led to challenges such as rising costs and limited skilled manpower, DCD said.
The 5th DCD Converged Indonesia Conference and Expo will feature six key areas of discussion, and to celebrate DCD’s 15th anniversary, the company is offering free passes to senior level end-users.
