ACCA at CIO Leaders Summit Singapore 2014
ACCA presents a panel discussion on the Asia Pacific SME Market for Cloud Computing at CIO Leaders’ Summit Singapore 2014 http://www.cio-leaders.com
On invitation, the ACCA presented a panel discussion on the APAC SME Market for Cloud Computing on Wednesday 12 Nov 2014. The ACCA’s panel presented and discussed the results of its research across 14 Asia Pacific countries, and discussed the potential for cloud computing as a game-changer for small and medium enterprises, as cloud technology is supposed to revolutionise the way that SMEs work, and provide unparalleled efficiencies. Representatives from the ACCA also shared their experience working with SMEs, and how perspectives from the small business entrepreneur bring about a more nuanced understanding of differences in the APAC SME cloud market.
The panel was well-received by the 50+ strong audience, which comprised CIOs and CXOs, and we received comments and questions on both the topic, as well as interested queries on the ACCA.
