PLDT Global Enterprise, through its Asia Pacific team, recently received the “Project of the Year Award” from Alibaba Cloud—the digital technology and intelligence backbone of Alibaba Group.
In 2019, PLDT Global Enterprise and Alibaba Cloud collaborated to provide digital and cloud solutions for Esport matches during the 30th Southeast Asian Games, ensuring athletes a seamless and world-class gaming experience.
PLDT leveraged its wholly owned Ethernet Private Line (EPL) service, through its international cables APCN2 and ASE, to bring Alibaba Cloud’s computing services coming from its Point of Presence (PoP) in Singapore.
"We are honored to receive such recognition from Alibaba Cloud. We at PLDT Global Enterprise pride ourselves on being able to connect leading technology providers such as Alibaba Cloud to the Philippines while enabling them to capitalize on the country’s thriving digital economy growth,” said Vic Tria, PLDT FVP & Enterprise Revenue Group Head.
The award is from the Alibaba Cloud HTK region that covers Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Korea, and the Philippines.
“This partnership milestone also marks the first Alibaba Cloud - PLDT Enterprise’s GTM collaboration in the Philippines. As the enterprise and public sector's cloud requirements anticipate an impressive growth trajectory in the country, we anticipate a stronger partnership with Alibaba Cloud while exploring other venues of cooperation,” said Jeff Mendoza, PLDT Enterprise Asia Pacific Regional Head.
The PLDT Group has been at the forefront in providing digital solutions to support and strengthen the country’s ESport endeavors, which help build capabilities of Filipino athletes and enable them to compete globally.
