Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise outlines new cloud strategy
Destot says the delivery of business communications is shifting towards the cloud.

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise (ALE) has named Matthieu Destot as the new executive vice president and general manager for the company's Communication Business Division.

In his new position, Destot will guide the company's strategy connecting traditional communications solutions with the cloud to deliver a personalised connected experience.

Under the new strategy, ALE said it will be executing a comprehensive stepped approach to enable customers to connect any vendor's existing communication equipment to the cloud.

According to the company, it's expanding its cloud offerings by becoming a cloud service provider, delivering flexible unified communication (UC) services.

The company stated that it will introduce Alcatel-Lucent Rainbow, a new cloud-based freemium service, which offers customers technology investment protection regardless of existing communications systems. Features of Rainbow include IM, rich presence, voice and video conversation including screen and file sharing.

Destot added: "The delivery of business communications is shifting towards the cloud. Businesses want flexible, real-time communications that enable their business processes."

He said gaining this from the cloud saves on cost and creates a consumption based use model that makes sense for the customer, the partner and the vendor."
