3:30pm - 3:45pm | Business-Driven Approach to Cloud Governance Adoption
Cloud adoption was accelerated during the pandemic period, but organisations find that amidst this disruption, that managing cloud spend becomes more demanding than ever. A survey reveals that over 30% considered their cloud spending wasteful, and 80% found managing their cloud spending a challenge. One of the key reasons is the lack of understanding of IT governance frameworks and cloud overspending which in many organisations are grappling with an unfamiliar cost model for IT and lack a deep understanding of how to manage them in their business operations.

Web3.0 or the Spatial Web era, just like blockchain technology strives to create a more democratic version of the internet. This is the next stage of web evolution, making the internet more intelligent, and near human-like through the power of AI and enabling technologies. Web3.0 will no longer contain data with centralised organisations, but on blockchain networks i.e. owned by the users themselves.
• What’s the hype about decentralised benefits and how can we empower users to maintain an equitable web for the future?
• How can we as users work together to improve data security, scalability and privacy?
• What are the key enabling technologies to create and distribute highly-tailored content to everyone who consumes the internet?
• Why do regulators remain sceptical/cautious on their governing approach /policies of a decentralised web?
• While Web3.0 opens up new potential for business advantage, what about the related risks that emerge from this?
• How is the Work of Future impacted by these new technologies?
