 As the demands of Digital Transformation, IoT, Edge, Smart Cities, Big Data/Analytics and Mobility impact and define the future scope of data requirements, so it is critical for the industry to plan for the step changes of a disrupted future. What role will different data infrastructure play and how will new opportunities presented by AI, blockchain, and a new generation of enabling technologies play out? 1,300 professionals, whose vocation it is to keep the digital world up and running, will converge in Singapore in September. From "mud to cloud", this event covers the full ecosystem, from how data centers are being re-defined by the economics of digital business, to how IT and data center service delivery are being re-shaped.

Michel Foucault. “Surveiller et Punir”, 1993.
« lI se peut que la guerre comme stratégie soit la continuation de la politique. Mais il ne faut pas oublier que la "politique" a été conçue comme la continuation sinon exactement et directement de la guerre, du moins du modèle militaire comme moyen fondamental pour prévenir le trouble civil. La politique, comme technique de la paix et de l’ordre intérieurs, a cherché à mettre en œuvre le dispositif de l’armée parfaite, de la masse disciplinée, de la troupe docile et utile, du régiment au camp et aux champs, à la manœuvre et à l’exercice. »
