Dubai, United Arab Emirates, November 13, 2023



Innovation in the cloud space is fast-paced. It is difficult for consumers to keep track of recent developments and to make sense of applicable use cases. Also, security and privacy concerns hinder the adoption to a great extent. There is, therefore, a need to raise awareness around how this cloud-fuelled innovation is solving real-world problems when it comes to security and privacy.


The summit is a great opportunity for the most innovative solution providers in our region to tell their stories in a meaningful way so that customers can relate to and envision what to build on top of their cloud foundation. There are also in-depth discussions putting these technologies into context, answering questions from major ecosystem players, and providing recommendations on best practices.


The Beyond Cloud Summit is a series of live, one-day events for C-level decision-makers that showcases a select group of technology providers focused on innovative solutions contributing to data security and privacy. The first leg of the series will be held in Dubai, UAE and features some of the most innovative security/privacy solutions available in the country.


The MENA Cloud Alliance as the regional authority on cloud computing, in partnership with our Dubai chapter - the Dubai Chambers (UAE) will invite major decision-makers, C-levels, and founders of startups, SMBs, and enterprises active in the healthcare, financial sector, and government verticals to the Summit. The invitees are carefully selected based on the solutions being showcased at the event and in close coordination with the sponsors and relevant government agencies to maximize the impact of the event.
