The 2014 edition of the Cloud Readiness Index (CRI) confirms a trend seen in our earlier CRI reports – the overall cloud awareness and readiness of Asia Pacific countries has improved across the region. Asia Pacific is one of the most dynamic geographies in the world today – data speeds have increased across the board, data centre connectivity options are growing as the Asia Pacific Gateway cable is completed, and regional broadband charges are among the lowest in the world.
The number of changes in 2013 that impact the cloud ecosystem illustrate Asia’s dynamism. Updates were made to Internet and data centre management legislation in Indonesia, India and Vietnam, while regulation surrounding personal data protection, user rights and cybercrime were enacted or tabled for discussion in Australia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam. Japan revealed a new national defence cyber security strategy, and Hong Kong and New Zealand are setting up new ministries to oversee the confluence in technology, innovation and business. China continues plugging its citizens in with their Broadband China project, to add 60 million broadband users and 100 million 3G users to their country’s tech footprint.
