ST Digital, a privately owned company in Central Africa specializing in digital services, will become a major Cloud services provider. The pan-African group recently announced this on its website and social networking platforms.
Indeed the launch of its Cloud & Datacenter Services offer took place as initially planned on January 22nd in Douala and January 27th 2020 in Yaounde. With this launch, ST Digital marks a new stage in its growth and sets itself no limits.
In 3 years, ST Digital has continuously gained market share in West and Central Africa in a highly competitive and changing environment. Present in Cameroon, Congo, Togo, Benin, Gabon and Ivory Coast, the Group has now chosen to bet on the Cloud. Already a year ago, the management committee has been secretly fine-tuning the acquisition of a Tier-3 data center.
A (re)asserted vision towards Cloud Services. ST Digital is definitively positioning itself as a major digital player in Africa and is putting the issue of African data sovereignty back at the center.
ST Digital becomes the first independent group in Central Africa to operate a Tier-3 datacenter designed to support the digital transformation of the continent. The group has also set up its own internal training center, “STD University”, to identify the best African talent, train them and integrate the most promising within the group. This initiative has earned it recognition and integration into the prestigious Stanford Seed University program.
