Today, I’m proud to announce that leading market research firm Frost & Sullivan has named Datapipe as the 2017 Asia Pacific (APAC) Managed Cloud Service Provider of the Year. Winners were selected based on performance during the 2016 financial year. This marks the second year in a row we’ve won this award, and we’re honored that Frost & Sullivan continues to recognize our leadership and performance in the region.
The cloud computing market in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region is currently experiencing a period of rapid growth that doesn’t show signs of slowing down anytime soon. According to Frost & Sullivan, the APAC cloud computing market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 28.4 percent between now and 2022. We’ve long recognized the enormous growth potential in the APAC region, and have committed to growing our presence in Asia to better serve our customers.
2016 was a big year for Datapipe in this regard. First, we were named a global managed service provider partner of Alibaba Cloud, making it easier for our customers in China to expand globally and giving our international customers the ability to more quickly scale in the region. In addition, Microsoft named us as one of only four Direct Cloud Solution Providers in Hong Kong, and we were recognized by the Asia-Pacific Stevie® Awards for Innovation in Customer Service.
The rapid growth and maturity of our cloud offering in the region, combined with our diverse partner ecosystem and localized go-to-market strategies, both demonstrate our commitment to growing our presence in Asia and were key components in our Frost & Sullivan award win.
This latest win builds on Datapipe’s recent global momentum, coming on the heels of additional analyst recognition in North America, Europe, and Asia. With a presence in 15 cities around the world, we understand the importance of global capabilities, and our clients can feel confident that their experience with Datapipe will be exceptional no matter where they are. Our global capabilities provide clients with consistent performance, service experience, reliability, and resiliency, and it enables seamless digital transformations around the world.
As cloud computing continues to become increasingly global in nature, it’s important for customers to have a managed service provider (MSP) they can rely on to guide them on their cloud journey as they scale their business worldwide, and we’re happy to be that MSP for our customers around the world.
