NCS and VMware – Taking on the COVID-19 Pandemic

VMware is pleased to commend NCS (Singapore) for winning our 2021 APJ Partner Social Impact Award for making a positive impact through the use of VMware technologies.

Each year, VMware’s Partner Achievement Awards honor a select group of VMware partners globally who have demonstrated outstanding results and innovation with the use of VMware products and solutions.

NCS wins the 2021 Social Impact Award for its stellar role in rapidly developing IT solutions using VMware software to tackle challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2020 alone, NCS undertook around 20 projects related to social projects; of these, more than 10 were in response to COVID-19.

Delivering comprehensive end-to-end technology services

A leading technology services firm with a presence across Asia Pacific, NCS partners with governments and enterprises to advance communities through technology. With a 10,000-strong team across 49 specializations, NCS provides differentiated and comprehensive end-to-end technology services to clients with its NEXT capabilities in digital, cloud and platform services, as well as core offerings in applications, infrastructure, engineering, and cybersecurity.

Rapid response to a crisis

When the COVID-19 pandemic first struck, Singapore saw a spike in cases in the early months of the pandemic, with the highest number of infections in Southeast Asia despite its relatively small population.

NCS worked on a variety of projects that used VMware solutions to help ensure the safety of the country’s residents during a critical time. Among these projects involved creating convenient temperature self-check kiosks that provided contactless temperature monitoring while reducing operational constraints at the same time. These kiosks were deployed at critical points to monitor the temperatures of incoming and outgoing foot traffic.

NCS also worked with VMware to quickly implement safe management and business continuity measures for many organizations in Singapore so that they could continue to operate without disruption during the pandemic.

Another notable project was enabling a school to quickly transition their employees to working from home. NCS deployed VMware solutions to launch a digital platform enabling staff to access all the school’s applications from devices enrolled on the platform. With VPN secure access to the school’s network and collaborative tools, the platform enabled staff to successfully cope with the challenges caused by the pandemic while maintaining their work momentum and connecting with colleagues.

VMware as the solution of choice

To provide the IT operations support for these implementations at the scale and speed needed, NCS chose VMware as their technology partner of choice.

Said Howie Lau, Managing Partner, Corporate Development & Partnerships, “We are thankful for this award, and we are grateful to be able to play a part in the fight against COVID-19 with the help of VMware technologies. We look forward to more partnership opportunities with VMware to co-create and deliver solutions that will enable our clients in driving business innovations and agility, accelerating their digital transformation journeys, and become future-ready in the digital economy, and to deliver projects that also benefit society at large and make Singapore a better place for all.”
