JG Summit Holdings: Digital transformation at scale

JG Summit Holdings is a multi-billion dollar conglomerate based in the Philippines with businesses across real estate, airline, food and petrochemical manufacturing, retail, and digital media.

In Technology magazine, Carlos Santos, the Group CIO, discusses how the company underwent a digital transformation.

JG Summit Holdings established a unified communications platform and made analytics a part of daily operations for faster decision making and execution of business strategies.

Success factors

Carlos believes that finding the right partners is essential. These can be internal ones, such as CEOs, CIOs, CFOs; and externally, forging a partnership with a company having domain knowledge and proven capabilities, such as Infosys.

Partnering for success

JG Summit Holdings partnered with Infosys for three digital transformation projects, including the company's data center migration and consolidation. Infosys migrated a disparate data center architecture across multiple business units into a single, cloud-based platform.

The road ahead

Carlos believes that technology is an enabler rather than the primary solution. He wants to leverage technology to achieve the company's environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) goals, and drive change management.
