Globe Telecom Creates Information Technology-Enabled Services Group

The introduction of Globe Telecom's Information Technology (IT)-Enabled Services Group (IG) was led by IG Vice President Reynaldo “Rey” Lugtu Jr. (third from left) and Head of Corporate Strategy and Business Development Gil Genio (third from right).

Globe Telecom recently announced the creation of its Information Technology (IT)-Enabled Services Group or IG. The newly-formed group will focus on catering to the IT requirements of SMBs and large enterprises in the Philippines.

“Our focus is offering our target market segments with IT-enabled services that include data center, business applications, and cloud services, with a mandate to grow the ICT business of Globe. We envision ourselves to be a major player in the ICT industry and eventually be the market leader in this space,” said the newly-installed vice president of Globe IG Reynaldo “Rey” Lugtu Jr.

In the past, businesses were compelled to establish their own data centers, adding to the expenditures due to a dedicated IT group as well as hardware and software upgrades. With six data centers in the country, Globe will be able to help businesses in reducing cost and provide them with a technologically-advanced, highly-secure, and ISO-certified facility that can be used to run mission-critical systems and store vital data.

“With Globe well-entrenched as a leader and innovator in core telecommunications services like mobile, broadband, and data, IG is poised to help sustain overall business momentum by tapping new markets and customers with our suite of ICT solutions,” he said.

Globe revealed that IG now has top accounts, consisting of companies from key industries such as air transportation, banking, business process outsourcing (BPO), energy, food and beverage, government, life insurance, logistics, manufacturing, and mobile marketing.

“IG presents a lot of opportunities for Globe to offer ICT-based products and services to small and medium businesses as well as large enterprises. We have in our fold world-class infrastructure such as our industry-accredited data centers, cloud offerings, storage applications, and our portfolio of business applications like machine-to-machine (M2M), HealthCloud, and the recent Telecom Asia nominee for best cloud service, our very own Globe PayrollCloud, among many others. We are likewise constantly developing business applications for different business-to-business segments,” he added.

“It’s going to be more dynamic and challenging with newer technologies in the pipeline to business operations more efficient, so companies will be seeking help from partners like Globe, particularly from my team. We will continue to innovate and focus on our business customers by beefing up our infrastructure and developing relevant applications for them,” he said.
