[FEATURED NEWS] Stepping into the cloud universe

HTX’s inaugural GoCloud roadshow brings the transformative power and potential of cloud technology to force multiply the Home Team.

HTX GoCloud

HTX kickstarted 2023 with its inaugural GoCloud roadshow for Xponents to learn, experiment, and engage with cloud technologies.

The event, part of HTX’s digitalisation and cloud movement, is the first in a series of upcoming initiatives to build awareness, enablement, and implementation of applications leveraging cloud technologies.

More than 500 Xponents attended the GoCloud roadshow that was held from 12 to 13 January at HTX headquarters. The event featured an exhibition and spotlight talks on topics including HTX’s cloud strategy, navigating a typical cloud journey, and the sovereign cloud.

In his opening remarks, HTX Chief Executive Chan Tsan said: “Even as we leverage cloud technologies fully to deliver digital transformation for the Home Team, it is imperative for Xponents to ‘Gear Up and Step into the Cloud Universe’.”

Through the exhibition and talks, Xponents were able to gain valuable insights and knowledge on how to optimise their use of cloud technologies to harness the limitless possibilities of the cloud from improving efficiency and scalability to boosting collaboration and innovation.

The GoCloud Portal, which is a gateway to cloud-related resources, Sandpit for experimentation, training pathways, and GoCloud community were also introduced to Xponents.

“Digitalisation skills are here to stay and are fundamental for the future,” said Colin Tan, Group Director (Enterprise), who shared about his journey going from cloud zero to cloud hero by developing a Sandpit onboarding application. “The cloud gives us access to a wide spectrum of technologies to innovate and enhance the Home Team’s capabilities and operations.”
