KUALA LUMPUR 15/7/2021 – In its latest move to strengthen its position as Malaysia’s Leading Converged Solutions Company, Maxis has announced the acqui-hire of Peering One Sdn Bhd, a Malaysian-based cloud solutions company specialising in hybrid and private cloud managed services. The acqui- hire reinforces Maxis’ capabilities as a one stop, end-to-end cloud solutions provider, with complete cloud offerings that address the full spectrum of business needs.
The acqui-hire of Peering One is primarily for their pool of strong cloud professional specialists, customer base and market position, which will further boost Maxis’ capacity and capabilities to offer best-in-class Private and Hybrid Cloud solutions.
“The integration of Peering One into our team at Maxis is a big milestone in our journey to be the market leading cloud solutions provider for our customers, and further deepens our domain expertise. It is a reinforcement of our commitment to support the Government’s MyDIGITAL initiative to transform Malaysia into a regional leader in the digital economy, and in bringing the best of people and technologies to enable businesses and the nation to Always Be Ahead,” said Paul McManus, Maxis’ Chief Enterprise Business Officer. Peering One has more than 10 years’ experience in providing Managed Cloud and ICT services to Enterprise customers across Malaysia. This is Maxis’ second acqui-hire in the Cloud space, following the successful integration of Infrastructure Consulting’s Managed Services (ICMS), a Microsoft Gold Business Partner with strong competencies across Azure Cloud Solutions, Modern Workplace and Security, back in April 2020.
