Datapipe named APAC Managed Cloud Company of 2016 by Frost & Sullivan

MANAGED cloud computing service Datapipe has been named by Frost & Sullivan’s top Managed Cloud Company of the year in Asia Pacific in their 2016 Frost &Sullivan Asia Pacific Best Practices Award.

With the cloud computing market growing quickly, companies that offer such services are essential for small-medium enterprises (SMEs) looking to maintain a competitive edge.

According to ComputerWeekly, cloud-based computing is a great asset to SMEs thanks to its ability to minimize complex processes, cost, and IT resources that are usually attached to on-premise solutions.

Neil Gardner, a professional services development and operations manager at Alvea Services, said these services are a boon as SMEs “won’t always be able to enjoy the same economies of scale as larger organizations”.

Colin Chan, Datapipe’s vice president and general manager for Asia, said: “We are honored to be recognized for the amazing work our team does in Asia Pacific.

“In addition to our enhanced service capabilities within the region, including serving clients such as China’s largest e-commerce services provider Baozun, and Singapore’s leading electronics retailer Challenger. The award also positions us as one of the fastest growing managed cloud providers in APAC,” he continued.

Frost & Sullivan said: “The award recipient’s cloud offering is mature and is a focus for the company and has grown more rapidly in the region as compared to its competitors.”

Award recipients were measured according to a number of criteria, including: revenue growth; market share in specific category and growth in market share; demonstrated leadership in new product introduction and innovation; major customer acquisitions, subscribers and growth in subscriber base; the company’s business and market strategy.
