Global Cloud Native & Opensource Summit: What you need to know in 2022 & Beyond

Global Cloud Native & Opensource Summit: What you need to know in 2022 & Beyond

Cloud Data Architecture: What You Need to Know in 2022 and Beyond (Big Data Analytics) talks about cloud solutions, cloud analytics, decentralized storage, data democratization, and more.

Key takeaway pointers:

1) Cloud analytics is often associated with artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and deep learning (DL). And it is commonly used in industry applications

2) Democratize advanced technology by allowing your employees to work efficiently within their current knowledge. With innovative technology, there is a learning curve that developers/technicians need to go through to make the most of that technology.

3) Decentralized storage works on a reasonably democratic concept where data storage is not concentrated in the hands of a few tech giants. Instead, it is a peer-to-peer cloud storage solution with ordinary users or miners managing the system. Users rent out free disk space on their drives and are incentivized with tokens in return for their contribution.

4) Cloud adoption is a strategy used by enterprises to improve the scalability of Internet-based database capabilities while reducing cost and risk. To achieve this, businesses engage in the practice of cloud computing or using remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process critical data.

5) Distributed cloud will support expanded service availability. By 2023, the leading cloud service providers will have a distributed ATM-like presence to serve a subset of their services for low-latency application requirements. Many cloud service providers are already investing in ways to make their services available closer to the users that need to access them.

Cloud Executive Summit Asia: Architecting a Future Cloud Ready Strategy for Metaverse

Cloud Executive Summit Asia: Architecting a Future Cloud Ready Strategy for Metaverse

Metaverse is a much talked about topic nowadays. Technology has a symbiotic relationship with the world, and humans’ interaction with technology constantly gets disrupted with new innovations. The future of the Internet and the vision of it being the Metaverse has definitely a potential for disruptive change to the way we live, work and play. The race is on for businesses looking to have a stake in building and positioning themselves for the arrival of the future. As this will be the next battleground for cloud computing, evolving your cloud strategy and tools will be the first step to lead you to this new frontier. This panel will discuss:

– Defining the metaverse and reasons why we are pursuing it
– Importance of cloud infrastructure in the concept
– How should technologies evolve to support the realisation of this concept

The speakers’ lineup includes:

– Lim May-Ann, Executive Director, Asia Cloud Computing Association (moderator)
– Anndy Lian, Chairman, BigONE Exchange; Chief Digital Advisor, Mongolian Productivity Organization
– Lionel Chok, Chief Metaverse Officer, Hatten Edge Pte Ltd (Subsidiary of Hatten Land Ltd)
– Dr. Khoo Eng Tat, Principal Investigator, Immersive Reality Lab, National University of Singapore

May-Ann Lim, Emeritus Director – Asia Cloud Computing Association: “Foundational technology and the stabilisation of all of the important bits and pieces usually not as sexy as the things that you build on top of it. So it’s important to integrate for all that we have been really exciting things on the internet. I think foundationally it’s still a wire in the ground that’s bringing us a lot of things. So that I think that stability and environmental systems are important.” (10:17)
Anndy Lian, Chairman; Chief Digital Advisor – BigONE Exchange: “In a very, in a very simple manner I will say that the metaverse is giving the decentralised network a very good use case. You know, apart from that metaverse can actually exist in both and in some ways or another is still centralized; you know whether the metaverse is being controlled by the DAO or it’s being controlled by the centralised party, in some ways, they’re still a form of decentralisation. So the simplest version that I have in mind, is an environment, a place where people can live a second life, a virtual environment apart from the life we are experiencing right now.” (6:27)
Lionel Chok, Chief Metaverse Officer – Hatten Edge Pte Ltd (Subsidiary of Hatten Land Ltd): “You don’t know if it will take 10 or 15 years, you don’t know. But what we do know is that because so many of the tech giants missed the boat or didn’t totally respond to web 1.0 or 2.0, you can be sure that nobody is going to miss the boat this time.”
Eng Tat Khoo, Principal Investigator, Immersive Reality Lab – National University of Singapore: “Moving forward, I think that what the real world is, and what the virtual world is going to merge at some point, right? And that will be truly better is truly multidimensional and truly parallel. And for that to happen, I think there need to be breakthroughs happening in the space, one is on understanding the space and objects, so we do object tracking, localization, and I think you also need to develop some intelligence for normal voice interaction and natural language processing.” (26:47)

Anndy Lian Shared his views on the role of Central Bank Digital Currencies and Cryptocurrencies at Singapore Cloud & Datacenter Digital Summit

Anndy Lian Shared his views on the role of Central Bank Digital Currencies and Cryptocurrencies at Singapore Cloud & Datacenter Digital Summit

Anndy Lian moderated a session on Fintech Market Analysis: The Impact of Interconnectivity in Singapore at the Singapore Cloud & Datacenter Digital Summit on 26 November 2020. In his speech, he shared his views future of the Fintech market and the role of Central Bank Digital Currencies and Cryptocurrencies (CBDC).

“I think at the right time, and when there is a demand for cryptocurrency payments is there, it will drive the market towards crypto adoption. CBDC is the start of another evolution.” Anndy Lian commented.

Joel Yarbrough added, “Personally, I think the most compelling use case is CBDC. The digitalisation of currency helping cross border trading 24/7 with transparent foreign exchange is incredibly powerful.”

Anndy shared further that he is still advising governments in the region on blockchain matters and the more innovative ones are looking at using core crypto coins, e.g. XRP, BNB, LTC or stable coins to act as a bridge asset to exchange digital fiat aligned to their CBDC initiatives. He also highlighted separately that blockchain and cryptocurrencies companies must take the first step to showcase how their coin and technology can help the formation of the future CBDCs.

This session came at the right time where the pandemic COVID19 accelerates Singapore’s digital push. The drive for digitisation is more substantial than before and behind the powerful force is Singapore’s Government taking the lead and setting aside more than S$500m to assist Singaporeans and local businesses manage the crisis through digital transformation. Today at another media interview, Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief Fintech Officer, Monetary Authority of Singapore mentioned that year to date, there are already $1.3 billion of Fintech investments made.

The panel lead by Anndy Lian (Hyundai DAC Technology) and with panellists Khuan Yew Lee (Fave), Joel Yarbrough (Rapyd) and Varun Mittal (EY) discussed topics like:

1. What’s driving the growth of contactless payments in the digital transformation of Singapore?

2. Fintech is an ever-evolving industry, with its mandate broadening with each iteration (1.0, 2.0 and now 3.0). At the same time, early fintech players like Paypal are at no risk of going out-of-date due to the evergreen necessity of payment platforms. Where do you see the most significant potential for fintech expansion in Singapore?

3. Many estimations are putting the adoption rate of digital payment platforms at an all-time high. Even for cloud-native companies, this presents capacity challenges. How do you deal with speeding up deployment to match this demand?

4. How do you see the embrace of blockchain influencing the fintech market (more than it already has)?

Singapore Cloud & Datacenter Digital Summit has brought the top 200 IT and data centre professionals to hear from industry leaders and new entrants on what to expect from a hub market, the downstream opportunities to the edge markets, and the innovation of technology in the space of Cloud Computing, connectivity, cybersecurity and data centres. Other speakers include: Daryl Pereira (KPMG Singapore), Palaniappan Muthuraman (Piller Power Singapore Pte. Ltd), Clement Goh (ST Telemedia Global Data Centres), Atul Babu (PCCW Solutions Limited), Anthony Hodge (Standard Chartered Bank)
