Sage and Yvolv partner in GCC
Partnership to introduce cloud-based business management solutions
Yvolv, a joint venture between Alibaba Cloud and Meraas, has partnered with Sage, a business software vendor to provide cloud solutions and services to the regional channel.
Under the agreement, Yvolv will provide Sage's ecosystem of resellers, partners and independent software vendors (ISVs) with scalable and secure services hosted on Alibaba's cloud platform inside the UAE.
"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 software-as-a-service (SaaS) 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 and medium businesses to benefit from scalable solutions and elastic computing features."
"Yvolv became a business partner as we share the ambition of helping organisations in the Middle East to maximise the benefits of the cloud and build their businesses. 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," said Aaron White, regional director for Sage Middle East."
