PT Semen Indonesia (Persero) Tbk, or Semen Indonesia — formerly known as PT Semen Gresik (Persero) Tbk — is a well-known cement company in Indonesia’s building materials industry. The company began operations in 1957 and has since grown into one of the largest cement producers in Southeast Asia.
Semen Indonesia is headquartered in Gresik, East Java and plans to open a new office in Jakarta. Its annual sales revenue generates approximately US$2.3 billion (IDR 33.4 trillion). Semen Indonesia’s vision is to become the world’s largest cement company.
In the face of such fast business growth, Semen Indonesia expects to improve automation and digitalization with an optimal ICT infrastructure. As such, the existing ICT infrastructure needed to be renovated. ICT infrastructure transformation must avoid service interruptions to prevent financial losses, as it is estimated that if services are interrupted for half an hour, financial losses will reach US$100,000 (IDR 1.45 billion). Devices from multiple vendors coexist on the live network, and the growing diversity of services complicates network Operations and Maintenance (O&M) and interoperability. The upgraded ICT infrastructure must reduce network complexity. In addition, this new ICT infrastructure must be future-proof and meet service development needs over the next three to five years.
