What's On

Registration Closed

Data centres have long played a crucial role in our society and the digital economy, by physically centralizing, storing, processing and disseminating vast amounts of data generated by individuals, as well as private and public entities.

As such data grows in volume, variety and velocity – driven by the expansion of the internet and emergence of innovative technologies - the design and functions of data centres have also evolved to keep pace with the times.

At this webinar, we are delighted to have invited Mr. Charles Lee, Founder and CEO of Newtech Group & OneAsia Network, to share his views on the origins and development of data centres as well as their significance to the digital economy.

Ir. Peter Yeung and Ms. Crystal Leung respectively Head of Electronics & ICT Clusters and Senior Manager, ICT Cluster (Data and Digital Technology) at Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP), will also be on hand to introduce the features and blueprint for developing HKSTP's Data Technology Hub (DT Hub), which was unveiled in early November.

The DT Hub, situated in Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate, forms part of HKSTP's innovation and technology (I&T) ecosystem, and aims to leverage the unique strengths of ICT companies in Hong Kong to drive digital transformation across the city's industries.
