    Globe’s CEO Speaks About Transformation on AWS

    Globe optimizes its customer experience by using AWS for its web portal, content registration platforms, online store, and self-service apps. Globe uses Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), and AWS Lambda (Lambda) for its daily business workloads and processes. Its self-service app, run on Lambda, saw a 2X performance increase with virtually no downtime. Building on AWS, Globe saved close to $2M USD in 2016.

    Globe Migrates Telco-Grade Workload from Oracle to AWS

    In 2014, Globe introduced a cloud-first policy. Oracle applications were used in 90 percent of its services, but it proved too costly for Globe to sustain a competitive position. In 7 months with no interruptions to service quality, Globe migrated the telco-grade workload from Oracle to a PostgreSQL database running on Amazon EC2 instances. The shift out of Oracle will save an estimated $1M over a 3-year period in licensing fees—funds that Globe Telecom can use for new digital transformation projects.
