Cloudera to focus on GenAI & Data Innovations at LEAP 2024

Cloudera will debut as a stand-alone exhibitor at Leap 2024, the premier technology expo in Saudi Arabia. Cloudera’s participation at the event aims to highlight the company’s commitment to innovation, focusing on unveiling groundbreaking Generative AI (GenAI) solutions and advancements in enterprise AI and hybrid data architectures.

Ahmad Shakora, Group Vice President – Middle East, Turkey & Africa, emphasised Cloudera’s dedication to the tech community in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East, stating, “Leap 2024 provides an excellent platform for us to showcase our dedication and responsibility to the industry. It also allows us to interact with people and potential customers, highlighting what we can do by showing them the product experience first-hand.” Ahmad Shakora also highlighted the synergy between diverse perspectives and expertise, stating that collaborative efforts will be pivotal in shaping Saudi Arabia’s tech landscape.

Innovative Showcases at Leap 2024
Cloudera’s exhibition at Leap 2024 will spotlight the power of Generative AI, focusing on Cloudera Machine Learning (CML) solutions. The emphasis is empowering businesses to benefit from AI while ensuring trust, security, and responsibility. Cloudera will unveil blueprints for generative AI, allowing companies to build their own AI applications powered by an open-source Large Language Model (LLM) of their choice and their data hosted internally in the enterprise.

Additionally, Cloudera will demonstrate how its hybrid data platform enables businesses to access and analyse all their data across multiple public and private clouds and on-premises, ensuring smarter, data-driven decision-making with increased IT controls, high performance, and low costs.

Strategic Presence at Leap 2024
A recent study by Cloudera highlighted the Middle East’s rapid embrace of the public cloud, with 71% of organisations already leveraging it and a substantial 86% planning to move more data to the cloud in the next 1-3 years. Despite this progress, the study identifies a gap in effective data utilisation, with organisations estimating that they are not using nearly 34% of their data effectively. Challenges such as IT complexity, integration hurdles, cybersecurity concerns, and data governance issues hinder more extensive data migration to the cloud.

With Cloudera’s participation at Leap 2024, the company aims to address potential challenges and misconceptions about the industry and technology, solidifying its commitment to the tech community in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East.

Saudi Arabia is a pivotal market for Cloudera due to its remarkable commitment to AI technology development and substantial investments in cutting-edge solutions. Ahmad Shakora commented, “The shift of international tech investment focus to Saudi Arabia is a strategic move with immense potential. The kingdom’s emergence as a focal point for global tech acquisition aligns with the global trend of leveraging advanced technologies for economic growth and sustainable development.”
