Orixcom launches 'ABC' cloud services
Service provider will Advise, Build and Co-Operate cloud for customers
Orixcom Limited is set to launch managed cloud services for customers in the Middle East and Africa.
The connectivity and cloud service provider is rolling out managed cloud services based on an ‘ABC' approach to customers, to Advise, Build and Co-Operate their cloud solutions. The approach encompasses all the required expertise, technical and commercial activities, and ongoing management to help customers create, build and operate successful clouds. The ABC model was developed to best support the migration of customers to the cloud, recognising the full spectrum of challenges that organisations both large and small face in moving business workloads to cloud deployments.
Andrew Grenville, founder and CEO, said: "Over the past years operating as a cloud provider we have recognised there is a large gap between the desire and the actual execution ability of cloud strategies in organisations across the Middle East. We've engaged with many customers to understand how we can bridge this gap and make the cloud journey easier and a success.
"Today marks a significant step forward as we announce managed cloud services. Orixcom, the ABC of cloud, is a very practical approach. We don't just sell advice and then walk away, we'll design and build your entire cloud and then operate it with you, holistically addressing all the areas required for a successful cloud deployment. We are really excited to start rolling out this model with many enterprises and service providers across the region to support their growth plans with our suite of flexible, cost effective and secure cloud solutions," Grenvillle added.
Paul Black, director of Telecoms and Media - IDC Middle East, Turkey & Africa, commented: "Businesses in the region are looking to adopt cloud to take advantage of the benefits it can bring, but often to struggle to realise the benefits due to IT skills shortages. Providers offering a managed approach can help address this capability issue and drive cloud usage."
