Globe Telecom officially completes its acquisition of Cascadeo. The collaboration between the two tech-driven companies started back in 2019, with a purchase agreement signed earlier this year. Now, the partnership has fully transitioned, with Globe making major investments in the leading cloud managed services provider.
“Despite facing many challenges this year, we were determined to be recognized as the country’s chief cloud collaborator,” Peter Maquera, Senior Vice President for Globe Business. “The pandemic only emphasized how critical digitalization is. In order to survive, companies have to respond with transformed ways of thinking and operating. For Globe, the uncertainties the world has faced pushed us to strengthen what we were always known for—being digital. This propelled us to go all-in on our partnership with Cascadeo so we can prepare companies for a future that embraces the Cloud.”
Globe Business, the enterprise arm of Globe Telecom, has been working closely with Cascadeo to help enterprises remain competitive amidst an evolving digital landscape. Aside from providing expertise in cloud-based products, Cascadeo also supports Globe through cloud managed services, enabling companies to leverage the Cloud’s agility, security, and scalability.
“During the quarantine, many companies had a difficult time adapting to the sudden shift to online services due to their reliance on outdated IT infrastructure and operations,” shared Jared Reimer, Founder of Cascadeo. “Our partnership with Globe allows us to showcase in the Philippines that the Cloud is more than just a virtual storage space. It’s an enabler of innovation, maintaining system uptime, and scaling digital resources to meet demand in whatever capacity. Globe’s vast network, years of cloud experience, and commitment to customer success is a great combination with what we can offer to the Philippine market, while Cascadeo continues to expand in North America.”
Cascadeo is a Premier Partner of Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud and is also an expert in Microsoft Azure, with Cloud Centers of Excellence in both the US and the Philippines. With the completion of the investment, Globe—one of the largest cloud users in the country—now has the highest level of professional and managed service capabilities for multi-cloud operations. This guarantees businesses that Globe holds extensive experience and knowledge in designing, architecting, building, migrating, and managing workloads and applications on the Cloud.
To support customers in any stage of their cloud adoption and help them leverage digital technologies in attaining their desired goals, Globe Business developed a framework that begins with connectivity, cybersecurity, and the Cloud. Globe anticipates that businesses will be able to brave the future with support from Cascadeo and with a triple-play of services—wherein connectivity serves as the backbone of digitalization; cybersecurity as the gatekeeper of undisrupted operations; and the Cloud as the facilitator of digital transformation.
