DCCI Summit 2023

Asia-Pacific’s most favored event, the Datacentre & Cloud Infrastructure Summit (DCCI) is bringing its legacy to Saudi Arabia on 29 – 30 November in Riyadh at the JW Marriott Hotel.

The DCCI summit will bring together many worlds including Ministries, National Banks, Insurance Companies, F&B, IT Enterprises, Sports Federations, Government-owned Universities, Real Estate Giants, Electricity Department, and many others. Further, it will present a platform like none other for the Datacentre & Cloud professionals.

The force behind the digital forces aka datacentres are rapidly advancing in the second-largest Arabian country. With digital and tech advancements proliferating exponentially, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is darting forward with its datacentre market, forecasted to cross $1.77 billion by 2027. The growth is being further propelled by multinational corporations expanding their cloud regions in the country, where the cloud services market alone is expected to reach nearly $2.4 billion by 2026.

While the platform will bind the different sectors together and give way to a holistic approach for datacentre & cloud landscape upliftment, the organizing body ‘Tradepass’, will host more than 300 delegates including CEOs, CIOs, CTOs, CISOs, CDOs, Heads of Information Technology Operations, Datacentre Facilities Managers & Engineers, VPs, GMs, Heads of Cloud, Security, and many other influential profiles from the Kingdom’s leading organizations.

Mr. Fahad Bedaiwi (Executive Vice President. Head of Facilities Management & Engineering, Saudi National Bank) stated that, “Going beyond expectations and consistently delivering progressive solutions is something that keeps Saudi National Bank ahead of the future. Amidst this constant evolution with technology especially datacentre and cloud, it has become our responsibility to lead by example in leveraging these resources for more advanced offerings. At DCCI we are expecting to have game-changing discussions that can change the course of industries for a better tomorrow.”

Mr. Abdullah H. Alfahaid, CITO of Ajlan & Bros Holding Group KSA, noted that, “We are thrilled to invite you to our upcoming summit, where we will explore the dynamic landscape of digital transformation and cloud automation, with a special focus on the leading role of Saudi Arabia and Ajlan Bros Holding Group commitment to the country’s visionary 2030 agenda. With the Kingdom acknowledging rampant technology innovations with Vision 2030, our DCCI summit will allow you to learn from and network with the industry’s top thought leaders.”

Taking into account the great volume of work and the massive achievements of DCCI for key markets in Asia-Pacific, the platform’s upcoming edition in Saudi has gained strong support from Invest Saudi and ISACA Riyadh Chapter. While Invest Saudi has always promoted the Kingdom as a world-class investment destination, the latter has always given full support in terms of information systems governance. It fairly explains the importance of their participation at the summit that’s also going to uncover new investment and IT governance opportunities under the datacentre & cloud landscape.

In the race to close more deals with the key profiles at the exhibition hall, organizations like Huawei, DETASAD, AlJammaz Technologies, CommScope, Sunbird Software, Legrand Data Center Solutions, Aksa Power Generation Co., and Sana Engineering have already reserved their booths to showcase their best solutions, as per the statement.

When asked about the recent move towards Saudi Arabia, organizer & CEO of Tradepass, Mr. Sudhir Ranjan Jena stated that, “The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is where the future lies as the nation is giving way to the most advanced digital developments, including the most futuristic cities of the world. Therefore, while expanding DCCI’s footprint we were in no doubt that the platform would be of utmost benefit not just to the many stakeholders across KSA’s digital ecosystem but also to the nation and its Saudi Vision 2030.”
