Cloud promises sunny outlook for region's enterprises

January 29, 2019 / Alkesh Sharma

Cloud computing is a tech buzzword in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena), with a growing number of enterprises - ranging from start-ups to government entities to family-owned conglomerates - embracing it to plan their strategies in 2019 and beyond.For example, Bahrain’s Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA) has managed to cut down its technology operational costs by up to 60 per cent using cloud, while Jordan-based start-up Mawdoo3 - a comprehensive online Arabic content publisher - has successfully moved its Artificial Intelligence (AI) projects on to the cloud.Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the internet to store, manage and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer network.
