Market leader Deskera to spend S$50m to build data center in Singapore
Data center will ensure that customers have more security, better service, greater reliability and faster access to data
Singapore-headquartered and market leader in the enterprise software segment in the South-East Asia region, Deskera, will invest S$50 million over the next three years to build a wholly owned Cloud data center in Singapore. The Cloud-based business software provider plans to convert the data center into one of the biggest software as a service (SaaS) centers in South-East Asia.
“The Asia-Pacific region is Deskera’s fastest-growing customer base. Consequently, we are investing in this Cloud center to offer our customers fast and reliable services,” said Mr Shashank Dixit, CEO, Deskera, adding: “The Cloud data center would provide business-focused Internet service provider (ISP) services, apart from integrated business management software.”
The South-East Asian major boasts of clients such as Google Asia Pacific, Starbucks Coffee, Sushi Tei and Intel. Key investors in the company are Aris Prime Partners Asset Management, Tembusu Partners and Tikehau Capital.
Around 50 employees will work in the new data center, including personnel from data analytics, software, network design and telecommunications segments, along with business development managers.
Elaborating on the new development, Shashank said that the S$50 million investment will primarily be in the software, equipment and logistics areas and will ensure that customers have more security, better service, greater reliability and faster access to data. “Through our new facility, customers will have access to our big data products, which will soon be launched,” he said.
Deskera has been recognized as the #1 Integrated Business Applications as a Service (BSaas) provider in 2015 for the South-East Asia market by Frost & Sullivan. Its Cloud ERP powers more than 3,000 SMEs and businesses globally. Headquartered in Singapore, the company has offices in India, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
