Indosat Ooredoo and Google form digitalisation partnership in Indonesia
Indosat Ooredoo and Google Cloud have entered into a strategic partnership to accelerate the digital transformation across consumer and enterprise industries in Indonesia.
The partnership is closely aligned to the Indonesian government’s digital economy development program goals that will position Indonesia’s Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMBs) as a priority target segment.
“We understand the significant impact the pandemic is having on our nation’s SMB community and this partnership will deliver new and outstanding digital products and services that these businesses need to thrive," said Ahmad Al-Neama, president director and CEO of Indosat Ooredoo.
"Through this partnership, Indosat Ooredoo will offer SMBs new cloud-based, and 5G enabled digital solutions designed that will empower new business models and enable them to tap new markets and opportunities that would not have been possible before. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Google that will accelerate digitalisation among SMBs and Indonesia’s transformation into a digital society.”
Under the terms of the collaboration, the two will jointly work in three key areas. The first is to digitally transform Indonesia’s SMBs across their business lifecycles. Specifically, Indosat Ooredoo and Google Cloud will create a marketplace of tailored software-as-a-service offerings with a goal of fully digitising SMBs.
Secondly, the two will work to digitally transform enterprises and communities with 5G by building a portfolio of 5G edge computing solutions that bring together Indosat Ooredoo’s network, Google Cloud’s leading technologies, and edge computing to help enterprises address real business challenges across industries.
Lastly, both companies will work to digitally transform Indosat Ooredoo’s operations, specifically Indosat Ooredoo will upgrade its infrastructure and applications on Google Cloud. In particular, Indosat Ooredoo and Google Cloud will define a clear roadmap for advanced data analytics modernisation and AI/ML adoption.
“The key to delivering next-generation applications and creating new customer experiences with Indosat Ooredoo is our shared culture of innovation," said Rob Enslin, president of Google Cloud.
"We’re excited to work with Indosat Ooredoo to help digitise businesses of all sizes in Indonesia and help the company create new engines for long-term innovation and growth.”
