Tech Mahindra and Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison Announce Partnership to Bolster Indonesia’s Digital Economy
Tech Mahindra, a leading provider of digital transformation, consulting, and business re-engineering services and solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison (IOH), which aspires to be Indonesia’s most preferred digital telco, to jointly explore business development prospects and innovative enterprise-grade digital solutions in the areas of Industry 4.0, Cloud, Data, and 5G Networks. The two groups inked a Memorandum of Understanding to accelerate Indonesia’s digital transformation and strengthen the country’s digital economy.
Both organisations’ long-standing connection will be strengthened by this partnership. Tech Mahindra’s proven domain expertise in new-age technologies such as IoT, data analytics & security, cloud, Industry 4.0, 5G, system integration, and IT & network managed services, as well as IOH’s industry integrated connectivity portfolio of 5G-ready private networks, SDWAN (Software Defined Wide Area Network), Data Analytics, Security, Cloud Services, and IoT, among others, will help Indonesia’s digital roadmap be solidified.
“Indonesia is amongst the fastest growing digital markets in the Asia Pacific region, and we see immense potential in terms of new-age technology adoption. Our partnership with IOH will help us in expanding our digital foothold in the market and will unlock opportunities for us across industries and sectors to improve productivity and enhance customer experience through digitally powered new-age platforms and solutions,”CP Gurnani, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, Tech Mahindra, said.
Following the conclusion of the merger in early January, IOH is off to a bright start in its new chapter. Since 2019, the firm has maintained strong growth momentum, surpassing the industry for three years in a row. With over 120 thousand 4G BTS around the nation, the new organisation has a robust client base of over 95 million users, making it Indonesia’s second-largest mobile telecommunications firm.
“IOH is committed to deliver world-class digital telco experience, connecting, and empowering every Indonesian. With that spirit, we are delighted to partner with Tech Mahindra, a leading digital transformation provider, to accelerate Indonesia’s digital agenda and economy. This partnership also marks IOH’s milestone to continue partnering with global players and to bring best solutions to enhance enterprise-customers’ business operations,”Vikram Sinha, President Director and CEO of Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison, said.
IOH offered 5G services in five cities last year, including Solo, Jakarta, Surabaya, Makassar, and Balikpapan. This is part of IOH’s commitment to provide world-class digital experiences and to lead Indonesia’s 5G revolution. The firm is also on pace to assist the government’s goal of achieving nationwide 4G coverage by upgrading mobile internet network infrastructure by installing an additional 11,400 new sites and increasing network coverage to 7,660 new villages by the end of 2025.
This collaboration is also in line with Tech Mahindra’s NXT.NOWTM framework, which strives to improve the ‘Human Centric Experience’ by investing in new technologies and solutions that allow digital transformation and satisfy changing consumer demands.
