AI, IoT and big data to drive data center growth in Indonesia
February 19, 2019 / Telecom Asia
The launch of new data centers in Indonesia indicates that there is an extensive shift in business priorities that is driving the local enterprises to adopt multi-cloud strategies. Therefore, the demand for hosting infrastructure services will increase as more enterprises in Indonesia are investing in digital transformation (DX) journey. IDC foresees the expansion of Alibaba in Indonesia will potentially create new growth opportunities for local enterprises as the rise in data centers in Indonesia will address the demand for scalable and cost-effective cloud computing and provide Indonesian enterprises a choice to build their businesses and workloads locally. Besides that, the presence of global cloud service providers in the local market will enable the enterprises to re-look at their data center strategies to gain benefits from hyper-converged and hyper-scale data centers without worrying about data sovereignty.
