Fivetran has opened a new office and cloud region in Singapore, continuing the company’s expansion in the Asia-Pacific region.
The Singapore opening follows the launch of its Asia Pacific headquarters in Sydney in May 2020, and enables Fivetran to provide 24/7/365 customer support across all regions.
Fivetran is a cloud data integration service that offers prebuilt, zero-configuration pipelines that deploy in minutes and automatically adapt to changes in source APIs and schemas. This frees businesses to refocus on revenue-impacting data analysis.
The new office extends staff across several key departments, including sales, marketing, partnerships and customer support, allowing Fivetran to better serve customers and partners in whatever regions they do business.
With the launch of this new cloud region in Singapore — adding to cloud regions in the United States, Canada, the European Union, the United Kingdom and Australia — Fivetran provides a global, highly available service infrastructure for customers who need locally delivered data pipelines in accordance with data residency and data sovereignty laws.
The new region enables Fivetran to comply with the Singapore Personal Data Protection Act 2012 (PDPA), a law that governs the collection, use and disclosure of personal data by all private organisations. If a Singapore business is not PDPA-compliant, the Personal Data Protection Commission may impose a financial penalty of up to $1 million, as well as other sanctions.
“Fivetran has taken a methodical approach to its growth, ensuring that we have the resources and infrastructure in place to support our customers in each region before we enter that market,” said T.J. Chandler, APAC managing director at Fivetran.
