The new lab housed at Changi business park is part of it's expansion of its cloud computing capabilities, and puts Singapore and the ASEAN region on the map as the eleventh cloud computing lab. This new addition will be part of the network of labs in Hong Kong, Ireland, Vietnam, China, South Africa, Japan, Brazil, India, Korea and the US.
Through briefings, technology deployment and development sessions, the Singapore lab will work closely with businesses, government and research institutions and institutes of higher learning to design and deploy their own cloud environments.
The lab will help these clients deploy first-of-a-kind solutions that increase business responsiveness, lower IT operating and capital costs, enable real-time data streams and information sharing, and provide globally available resources.
Specifically, the adoption of private, public or hybrid cloud environments can help organizations reduce IT management complexity and skill requirements; share resources among multiple applications; accelerate time to market; and support both existing and emerging, data-intensive workloads.
Teresa Lim, managing director of IBM Singapore, said: “Cloud computing is being acknowledged as a new computing model which can drive business transformation in a cost-effective manner. Due to the strong presence of many global enterprises in Singapore and the Global Information Technology Report, we see the republic in a strong position to become the global Asia hub for cloud computing.”
Will the new lab help businesses design and adopt cloud technologies for growth?
