YVOLV offers cloud services to Sage partners
To provide Sage's ecosystem of resellers, partners and independent software vendors
YVOLV, a joint venture between Alibaba Cloud and Meraas, has signed up to provide Sage's ecosystem of resellers, partners and independent software vendors (ISVs) with secure services hosted on Alibaba's cloud platform inside the UAE.
The two partners will work together to deliver pay-as-you-go, cloud-based solutions to organisations of all sizes in the Middle East. "We know that industries such as manufacturing, retail, banking and financial services are among the early adopters of mobility and digital transformation. However, ensuring security, data privacy, and regulatory compliance remain the key challenges for SaaS (software-as-a-service) adoption in the region," said Clinton O' Leary, CCO at YVOLV.
"With Sage digital services and solutions and YVOLV's locally-based cloud infrastructure, we are not only solving multiple challenges faced by highly regulated verticals, but creating opportunities for Small & Medium Businesses to benefit from scalable solutions and elastic computing features," O'Leary added.
"As a business reseller and cloud service provider, YVOLV enables us to provide secure, affordable and scalable in-country cloud services to customers in the region, rather than hosting them elsewhere at great cost and with compromises to performance," says Aaron White, regional director for Sage Middle East."
YVOLV will host two core Sage solutions for the GCC market: Sage X3, to be launched at GITEX Technology Week 2017, and Sage One, to be launched by December 2017.
