SINGAPORE, Oct. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC) recently received the 2017 Singapore Data Center Competitive Strategy Innovation & Leadership Award at the annual Frost & Sullivan Asia-Pacific Best Practices Awards ceremony, held at the Shangri-La Singapore on 4 October 2017.
The Singapore data center services market is being driven by the massive growth of hyperscale cloud computing vendors, spurring the uptake of data center leasing capacities. Additionally, the aggressive expansion of born-in-the-cloud (BiTC) companies beyond their home countries presents excellent opportunities for global data center operators such as STT GDC.
As region-specific providers gradually intensify competition in the data center market, participants are pushed to incorporate value-added services complementing their data center portfolios to increase their value propositions. Strategy innovation and customer service experience are vital for maintaining or strengthening data center operators' market leadership.
"ST Telemedia Global Data Centres has demonstrated a continuous commitment to its strategy growth and competitive leadership, and in providing customer-centric offerings in Singapore. Less than three years after the company entered the market, STT GDC has established a significant presence in Singapore with six colocation facilities across the city-state. In the increasingly competitive landscape, STT GDC has achieved significant revenue growth and high utilization rates," said Yu Xuan Ng, Industry Analyst, Digital Transformation, Frost & Sullivan Asia-Pacific.
"We are delighted to receive the 2017 Singapore Data Center Competitive Strategy Innovation & Leadership Award from Frost & Sullivan. We are pleased that it recognizes our commitment to innovation and offering our customers tailored solutions with scalability and commercial flexibility to meet their growth needs within Singapore and across our global data centre platform," said Bruno Lopez, Chief Executive Officer of STT GDC.
