New digital hub to support small and medium businesses

Cloud transformation in this region will receive a boost with the launch of the new centre in Singapore.

Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs) in Singapore can now further reap the benefits of cloud technologies, with the opening of Oracle’s new Digital Hub in Singapore.

Aimed at nurturing SMBs with the cloud solutions and resources they need for innovation and growth, this new facility will house Oracle’s digital sales team and focus on helping mid-size organisations transition to the cloud efficiently.

Located in Singapore’s Mapletree Business City, this is Oracle’s second hub in Southeast Asia, following the opening of the Digital Hub in Kuala Lumpur last year.

Abuzz with the creative energy of a start-up, the team will provide timely, personalised and effective support to customers, using the latest collaboration tools, techniques and technologies to transform the buying experience.

François Lançon, senior vice president, Oracle Japan and Asia-Pacific, says that with SMBs making up 99% of companies in Singapore and contribute nearly half of Singapore’s gross domestic product (GDP), the digital hub is well-placed to serve businesses.

Furthermore, 58% of ASEAN SMBs were already using cloud services last year, with a further 26% planning to use cloud services in 2018, according to the International Data Corporation Asia-Pacific.

“Increasingly we’re seeing more and more SMBs exploring the use of digital technologies to grow their business, and effectively compete with larger enterprises. As an expert in cloud technologies,” says Lancon.

“With the launch of the Digital Hub in Singapore, we hope to empower SMBs to transform their businesses and be on a fully connected cloud – one that can help them streamline business processes, gain access to an easy-to-use platform for innovation, and digitise their customer experience.”
