MENA Cloud Alliance once again supported the biggest cloud event of the year CloudMena2017- co-located by 5G and the Amazon Web Services’ AWEsome Day. Our participation in this year’s event was especially exciting as we have soft-launched our Cloud Competitiveness Index 2017 in a key-note delivered by our co-founder Mr. Omid Mahboubi.

Omid Mahboubi – serving as one of the judges – handed the awards to #Darktrace for the best cloud security solution.

MENACA also participated in a panel discussion on the issue around data sovereignty as well as ways forward to make sure the region can take advantage of cloud computing through facilitating the cross-border data transfer – which turned out to be one of the most exciting sessions of the event.

Other panels included topics such as the role of cloud in the modern enterprise, running a business on the cloud from an operational level & securing data in the cloud.

Another interesting feature of this year’s event was the much-anticipated Cloud Awards offering recognition to 4 categories this year. Held on the beautiful #BurjKhalifa rooftop, and attended by an interesting crowd, The #CloudAwards ceremony was an excellent ending to Day1.
