NEC expands Australian Cloud

NEC responds to demand for local Cloud solutions

NEC Australia will expand its range of locally hosted Cloud offerings to counter growing concerns around data sovereignty among Australian customers.

This new offering will support customers’ infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and software-as-a-service (SaaS) based deployments, meeting Australian organisations’ demand for secure, locally-hosted cloud solutions backed up by trusted local expertise and support.

NEC Australia said in a statement that the onshore provision of Cloud solutions means customers can rest assured their data remains locally managed and supported by NEC Australia staff.

"To further support Australian business development, NEC has selected several Australian-owned and operated data centre partners to deliver a secure, scalable, reliable, and high-redundancy service nation-wide."

NEC Australia CTO, Tasso Mangos, said the company recognised that customers wanted to migrate to the Cloud.

"Our experience shows that customers benefit from having a trusted partner who manages integration and transformation complexities, and also provides the tailored customisation required for a successful Cloud transformation,” he said.

“With our locally-hosted and serviced Cloud solutions, NEC Australia provides a superior level of security and services across all Cloud related application development, consulting and managed services."

The integrated service capability is coupled with a modular cloud architecture, which enables customers to take a flexible approach to the transition.

The approach is designed to meet specific service environments while balancing current technology and business needs, according to NEC.

This month, the company will also launch Cloud Collaboration, a service that takes unified communications to the cloud, transforming business collaboration and communications technologies with a low risk, flexible cloud service without any capital outlay for equipment, licensing or IT support.

Its call centre services will also be delivered by the Cloud.

The upcoming launch of Cloud Contact Centre, will cater for highly-complex multi-site environments.
