Singapore Telecommunications Ltd. (Singtel) is the largest telecommunications provider in Singapore, with business operations in Asian, African, and Australian markets. Today, businesses in 21 countries rely on Singtel and its portfolio of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and services to do business in a competitive digital world. To support these customers, Singtel undertook a company wide digital transformation initiative in 2013 to increase its market share in data and digital services. In 2018, Singtel’s digital and ICT business made up about one quarter of its total revenue.
An important driver of this digital and ICT business has been Singtel’s development of a robust cloud services offering for both enterprise and government customers. Singtel’s private cloud services have grown in recent years as its customers have sought to increase their IT agility and operate more cost effectively while also supporting business expansion.
Singtel has been a strategic partner in the VMware Cloud Provider Program (VCPP) and deployed various VMware technologies that form the VMware Cloud Provider Platform,namely, NSX, vSAN, vCloud Director and vRealize to run and support these cloud services.
Singtel’s customers have begun focusing on hybrid cloud solutions that allow them to leverage both private and public cloud capabilities. Singtel has worked to develop a robust and highly functional suite of hybrid cloud services to address this demand. The hybrid cloud service offering is intended to provide the security and flexibility customers require to support application mobility, disaster recovery, and ease of migration between different cloud environments.
In line with these efforts, Singtel and VMware announced an expanded partnership in 2018 to build a Digital Transformation Foundry in Singapore on VMware technologies.
