SaaS, IaaS Lead Cloud Initiative in Thailand

More Global News as Fifth International Cloud Expo Continues in New York

As the Fifth International Cloud Expo continues this week in New York, global developments with the cloud continue apace.

A new initiative in Thailand provides a good example, where SaaS and IaaS are part of a Cloud Computing agenda being developed by the government's Software Park Thailand and True IDC, a data center and hosting company. A software development training program that's in the works here is slated to last nine months and create a total of 20 cloud-bsaed solutions.

Local IT leaders have at least tacitly admitted that the country is trailing in the emerging Cloud development market, but aims to improve things through its ECIT (Enhancing Competitiveness Through ICT) program.

As originally reported in the Bangkok Post, Software Park director Suwipa Wanasathop said that Software Park has an agenda for cloud computing readiness based on three approaches:

  • To create the right understanding and expertise for the software entrepreneurs about cloud computing in order to promptly transfer experience to the industry by which the software entrepreneurs can access information
  • To provide a cloud computing testing system and expertise for consulting
  • To extend the collaboration to other cloud computing providers so that there will be variety of cloud computing channels without depending on one or either provider.
