AIMS Group posts record 24pc rev­enue growth

New Straits Times - - Business -

KUALA LUMPUR: AIMS Group, South­east Asia’s lead­ing car­ri­erneu­tral data ser­vices provider, had recorded 24 per cent growth in rev­enue last year, its high­est ever, break­ing 2015’s growth record.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Chiew Kok Hin said de­spite the over­all dif­fi­culty faced last year, AIMS man­aged to beat the odds with an un­prece­dented 24 per cent rev­enue growth that pro­pelled the group well above the in­dus­try av­er­age, es­tab­lish­ing its cred­i­bil­ity as the lead­ing data cen­tre in Malay-sia.

“Be­ing car­rier-neu­tral also means hav­ing mul­ti­ple telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions con­nec­tiv­ity hosted in our data cen­tres so our clients have the flex­i­bil­ity to choose their con­nec­tion points and are not re­stricted or man­dated to only one or a few.

“This makes AIMS the most in­ter­con­nected data cen­tre in the coun­try and en­ables us to form a healthy client ecosys­tem.

“This unique fac­tor has at­tracted in­ter­na­tional and lo­cal clients such as me­dia, con­tent, fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions, multi-na­tion­als, tourism, gaming and more, who want high net­work re­dun­dancy,” he said.

He added AIMS recorded 14 per cent in­crease in new cus­tomers last year, while the data cen­tre’s cloud-based ser­vices ex­pe­ri­enced more than 300 per cent jump in rev­enue.

To­gether with their par­ent com­pany Time dot­Com, Chiew said AIMS had been push­ing to­wards re­gional ex­pan­sion by es­tab­lish­ing its pres­ence in Thai­land, Hong Kong, Sin­ga­pore and Viet­nam.

Mean­while, AIMS was an­nounced as the 2017 Frost & Sul­li­van “Malaysia Data Cen­tre Ser­vices Provider of the Year” at the an­nual Frost & Sul­li­van Malaysia Ex­cel­lence Awards that was held re­cently.

The award was held to pro­vide recog­ni­tion to or­gan­i­sa­tions which have sur­passed mar­ket ex­pec­ta­tions by ex­hibit­ing out­stand­ing per­for­mance in their re­spec­tive in­dus­tries in the coun­try.
