Business management software provider, Deskera Holdings Ltd., will invest S$50 million over the next three years to build its cloud data centre in Singapore.

"The Asia Pacific is Deskera's fastest growing customer base and we are investing in this cloud centre to offer all our customers resilient, fast and reliable services", said Shashank Dixit, CEO of Deskera, in a press release.

The first cloud data centre of Deskera will support its cloud-based integrated business management software and provide a business-focused Internet Service Provider (ISP) services. The company's S$50 million investment will be spent on software, equipment and staff capabilities.

Deskera will also hire about 50 specialised employees in the country to operate the new cloud data centre, including engineers in the fields of software, data analytics, network design and telecommunications, and business development managers.

"Singapore is without doubt the best choice for us to anchor this new cloud data centre as it is already our headquarters and offers the human capital and impressive urban infrastructure that will enable us to better serve our growing pool of customers," Dixit added.

Deskera said the new cloud data centre will ensure the customers have more security, greater reliability, and fast access to their data, as well as the company's big data products which will be launched soon.

In addition, Deskera said it is in the process of applying for a Services-Based Operator (SBO) License from the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) to leverage on its cloud data centre to deliver business-ISP services.
