Cloud computing growing in the UAE

Dubai: As cloud computing gains traction in the Gulf, especially in the UAE, the key challenge for organisations in the region is optimise and fine-tune the infrastructure to best take advantage of the new technology. "It is an interesting market and a lot of organisations are keen to move to the cloud this year.

The region will grow "more than some European markets" this year. "Now businesses are tackling the decision of what to move to the cloud despite being constrained by security fears," he said.
