Cloud Computing Coming to Manila in March

I'll Be Speaking at an Event that Addresses Challenges & Opportunities

Southeast Asia is a dynamic region with 600 million people and a combined economy larger than that of India. The region can let lost in the excitement over China and India. Yet the region's growth rate is among the highest in the world. And Cloud Computing is becoming a hot topic.

With this backdrop, itprosasia.com has organized the Cloud Computing Now! conference for March 3 at the Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati City, Metro Manila. i'll be a speaker and primary moderator. We'll be looking at how Cloud can help developing nations such as the Philippines address ingrained problems and benefit from a continued global wave of distributed computing and business.

The conference organizer also provides job posting and career development services for companies and individuals in the Philippines' growing IT sector. Targeted government policies and incentives have enabled the development of a $7.5 billion business-process outsourcing industry over the past few years, with 400,000 new jobs created throughout the country.

Cloud Computing Now! is just the latest in a series of the CertifyIT! Tech Leaders' Series produced by itprosasia.com. The event will also feature several local technology sponsors, and is being supported by The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA), Open Computing Alliance (OCA), Philippine Computer Society (PCS) and the Philippine Society of IT Educators (PSITE).

Email me or tweet me if you'd like to learn more. Early March is a great time to be in Makati City; it's still relatively cool by local standards, and typhoon season is still many months away!

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next-gen applications and how to address the challenges of building applications that harness all data types and sources.
