2021 Wrap-Up by APAC CEO Graeme Sharp

2021 has seen a number of changes at BPD Zenith globally, with the major change being Galanthus Partners buying the company in July 2021. Since the purchase, a continued focus and re-investment into BPD Zenith’s Cloud strategy has been made, further consolidating the previous well thought through strategy. We are a leader in the cloud space, delivering our MaxiCloud solution (based on IBM Maximo) to companies across the world, and we see more growth in this market into the foreseeable future.

In Asia, BPD Zenith has continued to build upon previous successes throughout the 2021 calendar year, despite the challenges all businesses have faced relating to COVID related impacts. This year, we have further invested in our Asia operations by increasing our staff in the region. In additional, BPD Zenith recently opened for business in Malaysia. See our press release here:


In Singapore, our business has seen additional growth with existing clients and has more recently seen new business being won. We have run numerous customer focused events, from MaxiCloud User Groups to our very popular Tea Break Teaser events. These have been well attended by our clients in Asia. For 2022, we will be restarting the ASIA Maximo User Group and we intend to host this in Singapore, as well as bring the group to Malaysia for the first time. We’re excited about this and want to bring the Maximo Community back together again face to face.


In Macau, travel restrictions have hit hard on the gaming sector, which was still down around 50% from pre-COVID levels. Despite the continued challenges, our operations in Macau have navigated this well and continue to win work. Once Macau returns to more normal casino numbers, we expect to see an increase in urgency to deliver asset management projects and a shift to the cloud as part of the new norm post COVID.

Across Asia

Across the Asia region, our MaxiCloud solution is resonating well with clients and prospects, largely due to the accelerated move to the cloud-based solutions that the pandemic has caused. BPD Zenith has been working hard in the background to provide surety around security concerns and performance concerns that Clients have of any cloud solution. Our Global Infrastructure Team works hard to ensure that our MaxiCloud solution is robust, secure and usable, and we have been able to constantly deliver solutions that meet these requirements.

MaxiCloud Industry Accelerators

In addition, our Global Product Development Team continues to build value add into MaxiCloud with our industry accelerator solutions. This year we have been preparing for the release of a Water Accelerator (for the Water sector), and a Renewables Accelerator (for the Renewable Energy sector). With COP26 recently being concluded, the push to renewable energy to combat climate change is gathering pace across the globe, but more needs to be done in this space, and this opens up opportunities for all sorts of businesses to partake in making this a reality. In addition, management of water is also a key outcome in a climate challenged world. It’s pleasing to see BPD Zenith providing real solutions that can make a difference to all of our lives.

Finally, I would like to thank all of our Clients across Asia for your continued business. We take the work we do for you very seriously, and we aim for 100% customer satisfaction in all that we do.


感謝各位客戶朋友的支持, 新年快樂

I wish you all very happy holidays for the festive season, and I’m really looking forward to getting back on a plane again and meeting you in person in 2022.
