Good Morning, Jakarta!

Good Morning, Jakarta!

Beneath the veneer of glass and concrete, this is a city of surprises and many faces. On 3rd October 2019, we brought together a group of leaders from across a number of industries to connect in Central Jakarta, Indonesia.

The habit of sharing stories at the lunch table, exchanging ideas, and listening to ideas from the different viewpoints of people from all tiers, paying first-hand attention to all input from customers, and listening to the dreams of some of life’s warriors may sound simple but it is a source of inspiration and encouragement in helping the cyberspace community in this region.

And our new data center in Jakarta extends our Asia Pacific network to 64 cities, and our global network to 194 cities.

Selamat Pagi

Right on time, Kate Fleming extended a warm welcome to our all our Indonesia guests. “We were especially appreciative of the investment of your time that you made coming to join us.”

Kate, is the Head of Customer Success for APAC. Australian-born, Kate spent the past 5 years living in Malaysia and Singapore. She leads a team of Customer Success Managers in Singapore. The Customer Success team is dispersed across multiple offices and time zones. We are the advocates for Cloudflare Enterprise customers. We help with your on-boarding journey and various post sales activities from project and resource management planning to training, configuration recommendations, sharing best practices, point of escalation and more.

Good Morning, Jakarta!

“Today, the Indonesian Cloudflare team would like to share with you some insights and best practices around how Cloudflare is not only a critical part of any organization’s cyber security planning, but is working towards building a better internet in the process.” – Kate

Superheroes Behind The Scenes

We were very honored to have two industry leaders speak to us.

Jullian Gafar, the CTO from PT Viva Media Baru.
PT Viva Media Baru is an online media company based out of Jakarta, Indonesia.

Firman Gautama, the VP of Infrastructure & Security from PT. Global Tiket Network.
PT. Global Tiket Network offer hotel, flight, car rental, train, world class event/concert and attraction tickets.

It was a golden opportunity to hear from the leaders themselves about what’s keeping them busy lately, their own approaches to cyber security, best practices, and easy-to-implement and cost-efficient strategies.  

Fireside Chat Highlights:  Shoutout from Pak Firman, who was very pleased with the support he received from Kartika. He said “most sales people are hard to reach after completing a sale. Kartika always goes the extra mile, she stays engaged with me. The Customer Experience is just exceptional.”

Good Morning, Jakarta!

One night in Beijing

As the old saying goes, good things come in pairs, 好事成双! The month of May marks a double celebration in China for our customers, partners and Cloudflare.

First and Foremost

A Beijing Customer Appreciation Cocktail was held in the heart of Beijing at Yintai Centre Xiu Rooftop Garden Bar on the 10 May 2019, an RSVP event graced by our supportive group of partners and customers.

We have been blessed with almost 10 years of strong growth at Cloudflare – sharing our belief in providing access to internet security and performance to customers of all sizes and industries. This success has been the result of collaboration between our developers, our product team as represented today by our special guest, Jen Taylor, our Global Head of Product, Business Leaders Xavier Cai, Head of China business, and Aliza Knox Head of our APAC Business, James Ball our Head of Solutions Engineers for APAC, most importantly, by the trust and faith that our partners, such as Baidu, and customers have placed in us.

The team has grown rapidly in size by double since it started last year.

We continue to invest in China and to grow our customer base, and importantly our methods for supporting our customers, here are well. Those of us who came from different parts of the world, are also looking to learn from the wisdom and experience of our customers in this market. And to that end, we look forward to many more years of openness, trust, and mutual success.
