Data Centers are the most critical component in the digital transformation ecosystem. A datacenter is essential for hosting application of private and public information. These data centers help streamline information while enabling easy access to users and customers from anywhere across the globe.
The growing data and demand for exchange, to access information anywhere anytime for delivering of services and better customer experience are fostering need to connect various data centers together. Interconnected datacenters to benefit workload sharing, scalability and readily availability of multiple data for insightful forecasts.
India has emerged as the third largest Internet market in the world due to the phenomenal growth of smartphones and mobile app adoption. Increasing popularity of over-the-top services, such as messaging apps, online gaming, and video streaming have further led to explosion of digital content in the country.

The boost is also due to explosive digital needs of emerging economy with huge population. Furthermore rising complexities within the IT infrastructure brought about by virtualization and consolidation, coupled with various cost constraints, are encouraging large enterprises for Datacenter Interconnectivity.
With the changing needs, DCI will see a huge demand. To leverage its full benefit country must address the risks and barriers to DCI operations as well as create right environment for businesses to build efficient infrastructure.
The summit is of great significance to DCI technology providers, infrastructure providers, cloud providers and other industry segments using or implementing digital transformation in their organisations.
