Drivers

Increasing investment by government for digital transformation

Heavy investments are being made by Middle Eastern countries to digitalize their economy. The UAE government has introduced several digital government initiatives, such as Smart Dubai and Smart Abu Dhabi. These initiatives facilitate collaboration among the private and government sectors. The Abu Dhabi digital transformation initiatives and eGovernment programs are helping in major digital transformation plans and projects, including enhancing the formation of a smart government based on significant and effective services for users, ranging from individuals to government and private sectors. Various other digital initiatives such as improvements to the efficiency and effectiveness of the healthcare sector using IT and digital transformations, and the emergence of technology companies are contributing to digitalization under the National Transformation Program of the Saudi Arabian government. The Qatar e-Government 2020 strategy is expected to assist with eGovernment and eServices, ICT industry development, and national infrastructure development

Business expansion by global vendors to gain the first-mover advantage

Several cloud providers such as Dimension Data and Business Connexion are expanding their presence in the South African-cloud infrastructure services market. For instance, the global Managed Cloud Platform (MCP) launched by Dimension Data in Nigeria helps serve the needs of public and private enterprises as well as service providers. The company’s cloud offerings enable clients to accelerate their adoption of cloud computing, increased strategic agility, and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) infrastructure management expenses, and reduce cloud migration complexities and risks. The Business Connexion Group (BCX) has also strengthened its foothold in Nigeria by acquiring 30% stakes of the financial IT service provider, AppZone Limited. The acquisition enabled BCX to provide cloud-based solutions to the monetary sector. BCX aims to dominate the African online payments market space, and it has identified Kenya and Nigeria–two regional economic leaders—as the key growth markets. The company also expects to rake in more acquisition in Ghana whose capital city, Accra was ranked the highest inclusive growth city on the MasterCard African Cities Growth Index (ACGI).

Restraints

Lack of industry standards and regulatory frameworks

The lack of regulations and proper industry standards for cloud computing in MEA is one of the restraints to cloud adoption. However, bigger economies such as the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and South Africa have started implementing regulations and policies for cloud computing. For example, the Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) of Saudi Arabia has announced the release of public consultation on the proposed regulation of cloud computing. The objective of the regulation is to reduce the potential risks associated with confidentiality, reliability, and national security and create a favorable environment for cloud computing. Lack of robust data protection regulations and laws prohibit governments, their contractors, and financial institutions to store data overseas, and this is a strong inhibitor to cloud services adoption in the Middle East. The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) has imposed strong measures to maintain control of their own information space and IT infrastructure but are yet to develop regional and international cooperation models. Therefore, aligning international adoption models and benchmarks with issues specific to the Middle East presents certain challenges, especially from the regulatory perspective, which may restrain the overall MEA cloud infrastructure services market.

Limited bandwidth providers and lack of access to high-speed internet

The African region possesses an underdeveloped technological infrastructure, which is not capable of providing affordable bandwidth to local businesses. The variations in regulations and strong market concentration around a few players also make the cost of access high. The existing internet providers tend to have outdated, low-quality networks that are not optimally connected to national, regional, and international internet exchanges, or resilient against failures and outages. Lack of infrastructure to host and exchange locally and the high taxes on ICT hardware and software also add up to the cause. The African continent has witnessed the growth of internet connectivity in recent years, mainly due to the availability of undersea cables and the rise in mobile phone users. The total international bandwidth had reached close to 4.5 terabits in 2015 and is expected to rise higher, following connection of the region to more submarine cables after 2019.

Opportunities

African countries are gearing up to transform their economy and education system by promoting greater access to mobile connectivity and public cloud

Internet and mobile connectivity offer opportunities for addressing the learning needs of diverse groups of people in Africa, including students who are currently out of school, in a scalable and cost-effective manner. Direct access to the internet provides a link to a vast array of commercially available resources. Moreover, academic and research institutions need to connect with each other to share learning materials and access expensive high-end instruments, specialized databases and applications, which are not readily available through commercial connections, as African universities are struggling with the high costs of textbooks and other educational materials, and the shortage of teachers in various subjects, including Math and Science. High-speed internet connectivity and devices, such as tablets, can reduce the cost and help transform the education system in Africa. High speed broadband-enabled educational tools allow remote collaboration among fellow students on projects and facilitate video conferences with teachers in the real time.

Telecom service providers are leveraging the existing infrastructure

In the last 2–3 years, telecom operators in the Middle East have increasingly adopted cloud infrastructure services, and this trend is expected to continue over the next few years. Telecom operators already have the infrastructure required to implement cloud services, and by integrating their infrastructure with cloud solutions, they can use their assets for optimal efficiency. The demand for cloud infrastructure services is expected to rise, as customers are increasingly demanding cost-effective IT services with low infrastructure costs. Telecom operators can leverage this demand to offer alternative delivery models and provide the IT services demanded by customers. Telecom operators can leverage their existing infrastructure as strategic assets, which will help drive incremental value and profitability. They can also use their existing servers as data centers to ensure full utilization.

Challenges

Delivering reliable cloud services to certain African regions, particularly smaller towns and rural/remote areas

Accessing cloud services in rural and remote areas due to poor internet connectivity is one of the foremost challenges in African countries. For example, certain mining and agricultural sites, and fishing industries experience problems with basic telephony and internet connection, which makes high-powered cloud services seem like an impossibility. Aerial images from satellites and drones, weather forecasts, and soil sensors help manage crop growth in the real time. Automated systems provide early warnings if there are deviations from the normal growth or other predefined factors. Remote areas are deprived of such benefits, due to broadband connectivity issues. Enterprise-grade networks are extremely expensive, with many of the major components of the telecom and networking infrastructure being priced in dollars and the local currency sliding against the dollar price from time to time.

High latency and workload complexities in the cloud environment

Cloud infrastructure services rely heavily on network connectivity using the internet, especially when on-premises data centers are used. Internet traffic in the Middle East is expected to grow at a phenomenal rate in the near future, and the growing traffic is anticipated to have direct implications in terms of the capacity requirements of the underlying broadband infrastructure. This growth projection in the internet traffic is validated by a June 2016 report published by Cisco. The report states that the IP traffic in the MEA region is expected to grow at a CAGR of 41% between 2015 and 2020. However, challenges, in terms of investments for improving the network bandwidth, may crop up as per the economic conditions of the region. Developing countries such as Syria, Palestine, and Yemen may face bandwidth-related issues, due to the improper network infrastructure. For instance, in 2012, the entire internet connectivity in Syria went offline. Moreover, countries such as Kuwait and Egypt may also face issues related to connecting remote data centers, due to low-quality communications. The loss of internet connectivity has a huge impact on the effective functioning of cloud infrastructure services, and as the deployment of cloud infrastructure services increases, organizations must understand their bandwidth requirements and come up with alternate solutions to ensure the network bandwidth is never compromised.
