2017 Frost & Sullivan Singapore Data Center Competitive Strategy Innovation and Leadership Award Analysis Brochure
The key theme driving the Singaporean data centre services market is the massive growth of hyperscale cloud computing vendors, which is spurring the uptake of data centre leasing capacities. Additionally, the aggressive expansion of born-in-the-cloud (BiTC) companies beyond their home countries presents excellent opportunities for Singapore data centre operators.
"ST Telemedia Global Data Centres has demonstrated a continuous commitment to its strategy growth and competitive leadership, and in providing customer-centric offerings in Singapore.
Less than three years after the company entered the market, STT GDC has established a significant presence in Singapore with six colocation facilities across the city-state. In the increasingly competitive landscape, STT GDC has achieved strong revenue growth and high utilization rates."

However, heightened competition in the Singaporean data centre market is exerting price pressure on data center providers offering pure space and power, alongside concerns of a supply glut.
As region-specific providers gradually intensify competition in the data centre market, participants are pushed to incorporate value-added services complementing their data centre portfolios to increase their value propositions. Strategy innovation and customer service experience are vital for maintaining or strengthening data centre operators’ market leadership.
