Fifty-five’s decision to enter Southeast Asia comes off the back of the region hitting significant milestones during the pandemic: 40m consumers online, $100bn in online Gross Merchandise Volume and 62% year on year growth in e-commerce. With increasing diversification of investment into e-commerce marketplaces and platforms such as TikTok causing a proliferation of siloed data, alongside a fast moving privacy and data governance environment, the need for strategic thinking and prowess in data solutions in the region is greater than ever.
