Presenters for the case study

The new standard for competitiveness in ASEAN businesses and organizations today is cloud computing compared to their peera in the west and in China.

Cloud computing has democratized access to technology as users pay by demand only. This results in the protection of users from loss of data through more robust disaster recovery and ensures automatic software updates. Furthermore, the cloud allows for greater collaboration with teams and for better control of documents all the while giving employees the flexibility of working anywhere!

Cloud computing is at the heart of the current technology revolution and digital transformation going on in the ASEAN. This is why it's an imperative to look into the trends and best practices of other nations so that we can adapt more readily to what is an increasingly digital global economy, said Dr. Astrid S. Tuminez, Regional Director for Corporate, External and Legal Affairs for Microsoft Southeast Asia.

The possibilities of the applications of cloud computing is endless may it be for organization of any size, for all industries and especially the ASEAN. 

The ASEAN can greatly benefit from that would lead to a more efficient and integrated public sector, especially for national governments and cities delivering frontline services. One example is India's Aadhaar card which is a national biometric identification system. In Myanmar small loans are enabled to remote areas via a cloud powered microfinance platform.

It's wonderful to celebrate ASEAN's 50th anniversary this year. It is clear that cloud computing offers considerable opportunities for growth for both governments and business in the region. This study should spark a lively conversation on the barriers that ASEAN members states need to overcome so that new technologies can do be used more to empower citizens, grow national economies, and ensure that ASEAN stays a vibrant region for its next 50 years, added Tuminez. "Microsoft is committed to doing its share to empower everyone with a secure, responsible and inclusive cloud.

Today, Microsoft is releasing "4IR: 4ASEAN and 4theFuture," referencing the fourth industrial revolution and four case studies on cloud readiness of the ASEAN and focusing on the Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam and Myanmar! These are based on key data about the status of readiness of these nations for wide spread adoption of cloud computing as well as potential barriers to digital transformation along with the best practices and best solutions by other nations that can work for the ASEAN.
