CEO’s Message: STT Poised to Capture Value in the Digitalisation Juggernaut

Digitalisation has different implications depending on the company’s circumstances and ambitions. I am happy to note that ST Telemedia (STT) is well-positioned to capture value in the digitalisation process, with our three business focuses strategically placed to take advantage of the different facets of digitalisation. Our 2018 report card is a true reflection of that, and we have started 2019 on an exciting note with the announcement of our acquisition of Cloud Comrade. This year also marks STT’s 25th anniversary, so be sure to look forward to a very dynamic year ahead as we celebrate this momentous occasion while remaining focused on expanding our digital ecosystem in new growth areas!

Above is an excerpt of the CEO’s message. The full message is available here.
