11 June 2021, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre

about the event

The 6th Cloud Forum

It gives us great pleasure in bringing to the industry The 6th Cloud Forum, a regular cloud event which organised by Kornerstone and produced by PowerMind for a number of years. These are also events in which we have gathered the talents of the business community whose activities deeply transform or be transformed by the cloud.

During our last Cloud Forum event, our speakers and our delegates explored at length about how to build and to deploy cloud strategies to actuate business innovations; the ins and outs of cloud migration to sustain business competitiveness; the interplay of AI, blockchain and the cloud; and the best practices of cloud security.

A lot has happened since this last Cloud Forum event in late 2019. We are seeing sophisticated deployment of multi-, hybrid-, joint- and complex cloud varieties
, along with DevOps, BTaaS, SaaS, IaaS, PaaS and so on allowing customers the flexibility to consume, pay-per-use, and extended functionalities; the massification of edge computing as the new cloud phenomenon; the deeper integration of AI, big data and machine learning into cloud computing and IoT; and the rising trend of cloud based automation, analysis and optimisation; the ready infrastructure and maturing use cases from 5G plus approaching arrival of 6G driving its impact on mobile cloud computing; cloud security turns native, no longer an afterthought; serverless cloud as the way forward; organisation adopting Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) to overcome current limitations.

Countless industries are being thrown into hyperdrive by cloud deployment. For example,
 

Financial Services 

  • Revenue growth and profitability driven by customer intelligence
  • How to curtail the risk associated with cyber security

Manufacturing / Retail

  • Consumer behavioural shifts driven by new cloud trends and effects of the COVID pandemic
  • Supply chain transformation as a consequence of deeper understanding of consumer preferences.

Property / Real Estates

  • Deployment of AI/ML, VR/AR, IoT as the new norm
  • Greater development of the digital experience through imaginative offer of services.

Healthcare

  • Biometrics and other digital health data manipulation, driven by new technologies and post-pandemic regularities. 

 

We hope to bring to you as many of the above as possible to the audience at the 6th Cloud Forum, interconnecting real users and technology trendsetters, showing the business community the ever-changing possibilities of using cloud. We have confidence that everyone leaving the 6th Cloud Forum better informed, thoroughly intrigued and be positively in-action.
