Globe has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with NCS, a leading technology services firm under the Singtel Group, to bolster Globe’s enterprise architecture and ICT capabilities.
With NCS being a key solution partner, Globe aims to take the digital aspirations of companies and enterprises in the Philippines further, bringing tangible transformative benefits to local communities.
“We are pleased with the ongoing collaboration with NCS and their continued support of Globe’s ICT ambitions as we continue to go through our strategic digital journey. This continued engagement stands as a testament to both companies’ commitments to better serve the needs of clients,” said Rizza Maniego-Eala, Globe’s Chief Finance Officer.
“Leveraging NCS’ technological capabilities and consulting expertise in the telco domain, we continue our efforts on developing next-generation solutions that will drive Globe’s digital transformation for improved operational flexibility, efficiency, and time-to-market,” she added.
The Globe Group’s expansive portfolio, spanning telecom, fintech, healthtech, edutech, digital marketing solutions, venture capital funding for startups, entertainment, and virtual healthcare, has made the company an indispensable player in the Philippine digital arena. This partnership with NCS is proof of the company’s dedication to staying ahead in the digital race.
The MOU inked between Globe and NCS is part of the latter’s larger initiative involving transformative partnerships with Dell Technologies, Mandiant, Visa, AI Singapore, Assurity Trusted Solutions, and the Singapore Institute of Directors. It intends to address escalating cyber threats and leverage data insights and artificial intelligence (AI) with confidence so organizations can continue to thrive in a rapidly evolving business landscape.
Ng Kuo Pin, CEO of NCS, commented on the current complexities businesses face, emphasizing the importance of collaboration.
“None of us have all the answers. We believe collaboration is the way everyone can harness technology more confidently to achieve the outcomes we want. Through our partnerships with global and leading players to harness AI, Metaverse, Digital Trust, and other technologies, clients can tap into NCS’ expanded capabilities and networks for advanced and comprehensive solutions, and together, we can better navigate the multiple complexities,” he said.
The inaugural NCS Impact forum, where the partnerships were announced, served as a platform for governments and enterprises to discuss current challenges. Held at Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre, the by-invite event saw participation from over 1,000 decision makers and distinguished experts from enterprises and governments across Asia Pacific (APAC).
Discussions revolved around the role of technology in overcoming socio-political, economic, and environmental challenges, and how organizations can build resilience while fostering innovation. The forum also examined the divergent technological landscapes that have formed across markets with increased enterprise cybersecurity and national security demands.(PR)
