Cloud Computing Business Group launched in Dubai

Dubai Chamber of Commerce has announced the creation of a Cloud Computing Business Group, bringing together companies in the sector to foster a productive dialogue on how to promote and implement cloud computing services across various business sectors in Dubai.

The adoption of cloud technology has enabled businesses in Dubai to become more agile, flexible and efficient, driving innovation and competitiveness in the local economy. The UAE has consistently outperformed 15 other countries in the Middle East and North Africa region as the most competitive economy in cloud technology. Between 2022 and 2030, SMEs and start-ups in the UAE are expected to reap a total of $17.1 billion (AED 62.6 billion) in economic benefits from hyper-scale cloud computing, equivalent to 2.3% of UAE GDP in 2021.

The new Cloud Computing Business Group will focus on facilitating the development of cloud computing companies, raising the profile of Dubai’s cloud services sector in the international business community. By providing a forum to facilitate a mutual dialogue between sector stakeholders and government agencies, the business group will address policy issues related to the industry in particular.

Dubai has a thriving and growing cloud computing industry, with a number of well-known international companies and local start-ups providing a range of cloud services. Cloud computing has become increasingly important to Dubai’s economy in recent years and the launch of the business group comes at an auspicious and opportune time for the sector.

The new business group is part of the Chamber’s plans to increase the number of business groups representing economic sectors and activities in Dubai. They act as representatives and trusted advocates for the relevant business sectors and play a crucial role in recommending policy changes to make the sector more competitive and attractive, promoting international best practices and supporting economic growth. The Dubai Chamber of Commerce plans to increase the number of economic sectors and activities represented by business groups to 100 by March 2023.
