Global Cloud Xchange (GCX), a leading network service company, signs up Sonata Software as its technology and business transformation partner, in a multi-million multi-year deal


Sonata will support the end-to-end technology landscape and would help GCX
migrate from legacy technology and platforms and enable strategic business

Sonata Software, a global IT
services and technology solutions company, has announced that it has signed an
agreement with Bermuda headquartered Global Cloud Xchange (GCX), a leading
network service provider powering global connectivity for new media providers,
telecom carriers and enterprises. Sonata Software, chosen by GCX as its
technology and business transformation partner of choice, shall support and
maintain the end-to-end application landscape and help GCX migrate from legacy
technology and platforms to enable strategic business transformation in this
multi-year agreement.

GCX provides high-bandwidth connectivity and global managed network services
including managed ICT, cyber security, and UCaaS solutions, to a range of
blue-chip customers inclusive of hyperscalers, telecommunications operators, new
media providers and enterprises throughout the world. Its 66,000km of cables
span 46 countries from North America to Asia, with a particularly strong
position on the Europe-Asia and Intra-Asia routes.

“We look forward to our collaboration with Sonata to help transform our business
and stay ahead of changing market trends. We believe that our partnership can
help us harness the appropriate technologies to reimagine the way we deliver
high-bandwidth connectivity and global managed network services to our
customers,” said Carl Grivner, CEO at GCX.

“We are delighted to be GCX’s partner of choice for their strategic business and
technology transformation initiatives. Our primary focus in this endeavor is
delivering operational excellence to help GCX deliver on its strategic
objectives. Ensuring customer success is vital for us at Sonata,” said Samir
Dhir, CEO at Sonata Software.

Back in September 2022, GCX announced that regulators have approved the
completion of 3i Infrastructure Plc. acquisition of 100% stake in GCX. During
this period, global data traffic demand growth continues to exceed 25 percent
per annum. At the same time, increasing demand for digital transformation is
driving demand for global managed network services, with growth estimates
approaching 10 percent per year. Earlier in July this year, GCX had announced
strong cash flow and steady linear growth
supporting increasing needs for fiber optic interconnectivity in both
established hubs and emerging markets across its world-leading privately owned
submarine networks.

The announcement today is a foot forward in that direction to enable GCX
transform their technology landscape and enable internal teams to deliver the
market leading experience to their customers.

“Our partnership with Sonata is a significant part of our technology vision for
the future. It will help transform our application landscape, making GCX
future-ready and delivery focused, providing strategic business and technology
transformations,” said T S Narayanan, CIO at GCX.

“Our strategic partnership with GCX presents an exciting opportunity for both
companies to leverage combined strengths in engineering and digital innovation
to help GCX meet its digital transformation objectives, allowing them to provide
a high-quality experience to their customers,” said Roshan Shetty, Chief Revenue
Officer at Sonata Software.
