Over the past decade, cloud computing has revolutionized how people and organizations work around the world by democratizing access to technology, affording organizations of all sizes with access to a plethora of digital tools, as well as the security and sustainability benefits of the cloud. Cloud computing is the foundational enabler of the digital transformation of governments, businesses and organizations of all sizes; the default pathway for innovation.
Today, governments, public sector organizations, not-for-profits, universities, small and medium enterprises, and enterprises of all sizes across Asia innovate better, faster, and more cost-efficiently through the cloud. Yet, many organizations, both in the public and private sector, have a rudimentary understanding of the cloud and the policies that can enable cloud adoption across different sectors.
Asian Development Bank (ADB), the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA), and Amazon Web Services (AWS) are hosting a series of Policy Webinars centered around the theme of “Digital Transformation with the Cloud”. This Policy Webinar series is a multi-stakeholder dialogue that will bring together policymakers, regulators, think tanks, academia, industry, and other key stakeholders to explore how the cloud and forward-thinking, pro-innovation digital policies can accelerate the digital transformation journey of nations. It will focus on enhancing our collective understanding about the cloud, its benefits, and the policy best practices for digital transformation through the cloud. The webinars will run fort-monthly over 2022/2023.
The upcoming webinar will be a deep-dive into the healthcare sector and how the use of cloud can accelerate digital health outcomes. There will be a presentation of a study done by Deloitte on the benefits of cloud enabled healthcare in the ASEAN region, followed by a panel discussion. Details can be found below.
