Indonesia’s Digital Transformation Demands Direct Cloud Connectivity

Megaport and NTT Indonesia provide direct cloud connectivity solutions for enterprises embracing the region’s state of digital transformation.

Indonesia aims to become the largest digital economy in Southeast Asia by 2020.1 With the nation embracing new technologies and reshaping IT strategies to become digital-first, their target of reaching a market valuation of $130 Billion doesn’t seem far-fetched. In fact, the online market landscape in Indonesia has rapidly taken off with the number of internet users increasing year by year; in 2017, that number peaked at around 105 Million.2 This change in consumer behaviour is a major contributing factor to the digital transformation that’s taking place. The nation’s expanding online presence has led to an upsurge in ecommerce transactions sparking the need for businesses to innovate and expand further into the digital space to meet the demands of consumers.

71% of IT leaders from Indonesian companies, from recent research, believe that digital services are key to becoming more competitive.3 It’s clear that decision-makers don’t want to get left behind during the digital momentum and with new business initiatives emerging, cloud computing seems to be front of mind. This explains the increase in cloud-based applications being used with customer-centric and internal communications tools dominating public cloud and SaaS consumption along with backup and disaster recovery applications.4 As cloud strategy becomes more important to business in Indonesia, companies need greater access to public and private cloud services and easier ways to manage their data.

NTT Communications is at the forefront of ICT in the Asia-Pacific region as an industry-leader in data centre, network, and cloud solutions for businesses to scale and innovate for the future. We’ve recently partnered with NTT Indonesia to launch Cloud Connect Service, a Megaport Connected service, to enable customers to directly access global leading cloud providers. Through this service, businesses will have the ability to provision fast, on-demand, and high-performance cloud connectivity from the NTT Indonesia network, giving them the tools to build a powerful cloud strategy. This includes access to hyperscalers like AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Oracle Cloud, Alibaba Cloud, and more.

Existing Megaport customers now also have the capability of connecting to Indonesia from any enabled data centre across our Network. Enabling Indonesia with connectivity expands on our partnership with NTT Communications covering multiple areas across the Asia Pacific; our collaboration with NTT Singapore launched last year. Extended coverage means multinational companies operating in both places can benefit from using a single service to connect.

We’re empowering companies across Indonesia to optimise their cloud connectivity, in order to be a part of the digital transformation currently taking place, as well as plan for the future with a flexible IT strategy as the online market continues to grow throughout the region.
