The go-to Cloud and Data Centre gathering in South Africa

Digital transformation is currently moving at a rapid pace and organisations have had to seriously rethink their IT strategies and augment their IT infrastructure to drastically improve their capabilities, performance and efficiency. In this digital age, if organisations have to survive and remain competitive, they need to move beyond issues of maintenance and other reactive tasks and focus on innovation as their core business. The modernisation of cloud and data centre infrastructure and applications is a step in that direction. It is a step in achieving an intelligent enterprise that is essential for survival in the digital business terrain that enterprises have been thrown into.

The ITWeb Cloud & Data Centre Summit 2022 will focus on a wide range of mission critical topics, including hyperscale data centres; complexity of the cloud; multi-cloud; public, private and hybrid cloud; cloud repatriation; cloud sovereignty; cloud security & compliance; privacy; automation; data centre modernisation; data ownership; access control; agile working methodologies; containers, to name a few.


Join us at the largest gathering of qualified end-users of data centre architecture, infrastructure, technologies and solutions, who are looking at adopting and implementing technological solutions that will help to master the mutlicloud environment and propel innovation for their businesses in the digital era.

We will have expert insights, thought leadership pieces and case studies specifically exploring the technological inroads that are being made in the cloud and data centre spheres. As much as some of these sessions will specifically zone in on these two themes separately, some of them will explore how they are intertwined.


We will explore how your organisation can operate, be secure and be highly innovative in the mutlicloud environments. Industry experts from both leading cloud solutions providers and end users will examine how business agility has birthed the need for organisations to adopt numerous service providers to tap into technology and cost saving options. We will also look at how this has resulted in complexities and how to either prevent and/or overcome them in order to drive efficiency. Industry expects will explore how hybrid multi-cloud and private cloud have gained more momentum as questions to do with cost and security have come to the fore. We will take an in-depth look at how and why a number of enterprises have been seen to step away from the public cloud in favour of private cloud and co-location.


Speakers will explore the state of data centres in South Africa following the digital disruption that has come about since the advent of COVID-19 and circumstantial occurrences such as remote working, learning and an increase in e-commerce. Data centres have become central for every business as they have evolved to support the demands of modern-day computing requirements. We will examine the data centre models and services that are available for South African businesses and how each of these play a different role in enabling innovation in the country’s digital economy.
