VSTECS Philippines, a leading ICT products and services provider, has recently entered a distribution partnership with Alibaba Cloud, the digital intelligence and technology backbone of Alibaba Group, to offer cloud computing products and services in the Philippines.
As the first distributor in the country for Alibaba Cloud, VSTECS Philippines aims to speed up the digital transformation of local businesses by leveraging this important partnership with the trusted global cloud leader.
Through VSTECS’ established network of channel partners across the Philippines, the partnership will bring Alibaba Cloud’s extensive range of leading-edge cloud products and solutions to businesses in different industries, including retail, FinTech, e-commerce, BPO (Business Processes Outsourcing), media, internet education and public services.
“The appointment will allow VSTECS to offer the complete portfolio of Alibaba Cloud’s core internet technologies, digital intelligence, and cloud infrastructure solutions to local enterprises,” said Jimmy D. Go., president and chief executive, VSTECS Philippines. “The pandemic has accelerated digital transformation and the adoption of cloud technologies in the country, and our partnership with Alibaba Cloud is timely as it will further boost our portfolio of cloud-based solutions. We look forward to using our local expertise to apply these and help local companies modernize their IT infrastructure, access world-class technologies, speed-up digital migration, ensure business continuity, and most importantly enhance the delivery of their services to customers.”
A recent survey entitled “The Role of Cloud in Asia and Confidence in Asian Innovation”, commissioned by Alibaba Cloud, showed that 94% of Philippine businesses believe cloud-based tools or digitalization efforts were the most important factor in helping their companies mitigate the COVID-19 operating environment.
As the leading public cloud service provider in Asia Pacific, Alibaba Cloud provides all of its major products – such as its elastic computing, storage, database, network and security services – as well as localized solutions to assist enterprises and SMEs in the Philippines.
“Businesses in the Philippines are embracing cloud technology because it has given them the flexibility needed to adjust quickly and easily during the pandemic,” said Allen Guo, country manager for the Philippines, Alibaba Cloud Intelligence. “Given the success that has been demonstrated, we anticipate that more companies in the country will adopt cloud services for their core business processes in the near future. With the extensive channel network provided by VSTECS and the diversity of its channel ecosystem, we are confident that this partnership will bring more values to the market in the digital era.”
Alibaba Cloud has demonstrated its commitment to growing and driving the success of a digital society in the country. In July 2020, Alibaba Cloud announced that it would support 5,000 businesses in the Philippines on their digital migration by end-2023. It also hopes to train 50,000 and certify at least 10,000 local IT professionals within the next three years.
