  • WEF to SXSW: The Global Cloud Revolution

    by Winston Damarillo

    What if we put our collective technical expertise and resources to creating something more impactful than the next incremental addition to Twitter? Developing nations have an untapped potential to become regional hubs for research and development. Ideas are in abundance, but how can we help fuel this drive with essential tools and make them a reality? How can the cloud revolution enable these nations to grow into global think tanks?

    In this session, World Economic Forum Young Global Leader Winston Damarillo will address the reason he sees the scarcity of computing resources as a matter of national security. The implementation of cloud has the potential to turbo-charge entrepreneurship in developing nations around the world – through allowing aspiring organizations to access high capacity computing power without the need to invest in hardware, software, network, and real-estate space, maximizing scarce energy resources.

    The session will include the benefits of the cloud with respect to social development, indigenous innovation and economic growth, as well as the ways that we can leverage our Silicon Valley resources and expertise to change the world in ways that parallel the impact of Facebook and Twitter on our global network.

    At 11:00am to 12:00pm, Sunday 11th March
