BROADGROUP LAUNCHES NEW DATACLOUD AND EDGE FORUM IN MUMBAI AS INDIA DATACENTER DEMAND REACHES INFLECTION POINT
London/Mumbai – 25 October 2019 – BroadGroup has announced the launch today of a new Datacloud and Edge Forum taking place at the St Regis Hotel in Mumbai February 5-6 2019.
As India projects massive data growth, driven by a mix of government policy, local mobile demand, a massive e-commerce market, enterprise migration and smart cities, the national requirement for datacenters to manage and process these services is both urgent and extensive.
India’s data is projected to grow at explosive rates over the next few years in what is forecast to be a USD5 trillion economy by 2024. With a population projected to top 1.4 billion in the next 5 years, and only around 100 third party datacenters across India at present, the number of hyperscale, metro and Edge facilities that will be needed to power the country’s data economy, smart cities projects and enterprise transformation is huge.
“Addressing the pathway for large scale datacenter development and how Edge facilities powered by AI will support the economic and digital transformation that lies ahead represents the core agenda for this important market leading executive forum,” commented Philip Low, chairman of BroadGroup.
“We are delighted to host the event in Mumbai, India’s largest datacenter market in scale, and in the state of Maharashtra which perceives the global opportunity that is opening to it.”
The new forum will connect executives attending with the regulatory authorities, investors, enterprises and gamechangers shaping the second largest digital economy in the world in India’s largest connectivity hub, Mumbai.
“The forum will deliver premium networking opportunities alongside bespoke market insight and a topical, relevant programme,” commented Marcello Brescia, general manager Asia at BroadGroup.
“It will also provide a timely opportunity to companies investing in India with a recognized high level showcase for brands and for executives to gain critical insights into the strategies and partnerships shaping India’s tremendous digital market.”
