Peter Lam, Managing Director of HKT Engineering, said: ‘In the digital era, customers expect services to be user-centric, responsive, user-defined and self-served … We are building a new cloud-based platform as a solid foundation for future-oriented operations and networks. This will enable us to unlock the enormous potential of digital services for customers and for future business growth.’
