NCS Group, a multinational infotech and communications engineering company headquartered in Singapore, has announced a major business and people transformation move to reposition the company for growth in the 5G era. The strategic reset focuses on growing digital services, as well as scaling NCS’s government and telco business segments.
For instance, Telco+ is a joint initiative between Singtel and NCS to help telecom companies transform digitally and improve operational efficiencies and leverage data driven insights to deliver enhanced customer experiences.
With the combined 5G capabilities of the Singtel Group and NCS’ expertise in digital and technology services, Telco+ will also develop a full stack of 5G-enabled solutions to help enterprises capitalise on the applications of 5G.
NCS will also continue on their expansion into the Asia-Pacific region, focusing on the high-growth markets of Singapore, Australia and Greater China.
In December 2020, NCS launched NEXT in Australia in partnership with Optus Enterprise to deliver end-to-end ICT and digital services to the Australian enterprise market. Australia, which is Asia-Pacific’s third-largest IT services market, provides access to a diversity of talent and technology. NCS aims to expand its presence in Australia through a combination of organic and inorganic means, building up digital capabilities in cloud and artificial intelligence (AI).
Ng Kuo Pin, CEO of NCS, said, “There isn’t a more opportune time for us to make the pivot from a traditional ICT service provider to a digital and technology services firm in Asia-Pacific.
“COVID-19 and the mass migration online have put digital transformation on everyone’s agenda, and we intend to leverage our strengths in the public and telco sectors to capitalise on this opportunity to redefine and grow our company.”
