Servian – a digital transformation consultancy headquartered in Sydney – has announced an upcoming outfit in Singapore, marking the latest development in an ongoing expansion journey.

With its specialist team of nearly 500 professionals spread across six Australian offices and one each in the UK, New Zealand and India, Servian helps clients across the world up their business value via five tech pillars: data & analytics, artificial intelligence, digital, customer engagement and cloud & technology.

Bolstering each service is a set of vendor partnerships with leaders in the cloud arena – Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and Harshicorp. This comprehensive offering will now be delivered across Singapore through a new on-site locale, established to serve an expanding pool of clients in the country.

Most notable here is a recent project to develop security and Infrastructure as Code (IaC) capacity for the Singapore Government through skill training and architecture development. Now in Singapore, Servian will be better positioned to fulfill these engagements and build new ones. Fueling this growth will be an expanding team of tech experts, with the firm revealing that recruitment is on the cards following the Singapore launch.

Leading the new office will be Peter Gatt – Partner & Southeast Asia Lead at Servian. Gatt has more than a decade of experience in the cloud tech space, including at Dimension Data, Sensis, Telstra and Sacon Group. Until last year, Gatt was the CEO of cloud specialist firm Vibrato, which was acquired by Servian in August 2019. The move saw Gatt join Servian’s leadership ranks, and he is now tasked with managing a significant territorial expansion.

The Vibrato deal was followed by the acquisition of Enterprise IT in New Zealand, and the Singapore move signals continued expansion plans for the firm. According to Gatt, the growth is fueled by the simple fact that Servian’s digital transformation value proposition is in high demand across the world.

Value proposition

“Having worked with hundreds of organisations in different segments, verticals and of varying sizes, the conversation is always the same. They want to take advantage of data to make money and they want to optimise their operations to save money, with technology now at the heart of that conversation. We help clients realise those outcomes quickly and securely, gaining a critical edge over their competitors,” he told Channel Asia.

Gatt highlighted that most businesses have clear digital objectives in mind, but need a partner to get there. Servian focuses on delivering these goals in a cost-effective manner, giving it additional allure for the increasingly active small and medium enterprise (SME) sector across the Asia Pacific.

“A key advantage we bring to the SME sector in the region is our ability to lower the barrier to entry for companies to transition to cloud computing and digital service delivery. This allows SMEs to remain competitive without breaking their budgets,” said Gatt.
