Opportunities abound on the IT front, says Canalys CEO

T.C. Seow | Dec. 16, 2013
If there's one message that the 2013 Canalys Channels Forum delegates could take away from the Shangri La Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand, it is this: the global economic crisis is over, and that channels in Asia Pacific should embrace new opportunities emerging from the IT frontier while avoiding pitfalls.

"The biggest implication of all this is, expect cloud computing to become more local. more and more companies insisting that their data is guaranteed and is kept in their countries," said Brazier. "At least they know the regulatory and work environment they're working in. They know what laws and risks they are taking. And we're seeing some countries such as Brazil and Germany lead this initiatives."

Multinational corporations as well as the likes of Amazon, will have to establish data centres in each country and guarantee in some way it is certified compliant with the regulations of each country, he said. Otherwise, the market will become more local.
