2019 Outlook: Cloud computing will be a key enabler for governments with smart city initiatives

January 05, 2019 / Zubin Chagpar

The coming year is set to be an exciting one for cloud computing in the Middle East as the region is seeing the adoption of cloud technology like never before.A push for more diversified economies, coupled with visionary plans that include innovative smart city initiatives, have led to increased investment in new technologies. 2019 will see the launch of the first Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure region in the Middle East, located in Bahrain. We are eager to see the results of bringing the most advanced cloud technologies closer to startups, enterprises and governments.
With the launch of the new data centres, AWS will add to the 20 regions currently operating across the globe. Already, we are seeing dramatic change as businesses and governments across the region have started to migrate to the cloud while using the existing AWS infrastructure, enabling them to focus on the development of their products and services and empowering them to innovate faster.
