Xebia to outline the smarter, faster, and more cost-efficient opportunities of the cloud while underscoring the challenges of implementation and how to overcome them

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 30 August 2022: Leading global IT consultancy, Xebia, will extoll the importance of data-driven transformation as businesses across the UAE accelerate their digital initiatives and the adoption of cloud-based applications, in line with the growing trend of work-from-anywhere teams.

A trio of Xebia experts will be speaking at the forthcoming event, IT Transformed: Data-driven transformation, which is slated to take place tomorrow, 31 August at The Address Boulevard, Dubai. Panellists include Shankar Garg, Managing Director, MEA; Bharat Srivastav, Global Head – Partnerships & Alliances; and Ram Narasimhan, Global Head of AI and Cognitive Services, who will outline the pros of utilising the cloud, including working smarter, faster and more cost-efficiently while also highlighting the challenges.

“Organisations across the UAE are accelerating their digital initiatives and the adoption of cloud-based applications to power their work-from-anywhere teams. There are, however, challenges to achieving this,” said Garg.

“Insufficient migration capabilities, managing multi-cloud complexity, unpredictable application performance and security continue to be roadblocks for organisations as data moves back and forth between corporate networks and the cloud,” he added.

According to the Markets and Markets MEA Cloud Computing Report, the UAE’s cloud computing market is expected to grow from US14.2 billion in 2021 to US31.4 billion by 2026. Furthermore, according to McKinsey Digital, the global market for enterprise IT services is worth US2.4 trillion, indicating cloud computing still has a wealth of room for growth.

The increase is expected to come to fruition on the back of an uptick of businesses in the region transforming processes, data centres, departments, and even entire companies with technology.

With ever-changing business demands, including anywhere-anytime access, IT departments are strategically positioned to rapidly deploy efficient solutions to support organisational growth and innovative initiatives relating to flexibility, scalability, cost reduction, and faster time to market.
