Cloud ERP vendor, NetSuite, has partnered with Google and Amazon Web Services' Simple Storage Service to provide an integrated cloud solution.
At NetSuite's annual partner and developer conference in San Francisco, CEO, Zach Nelson, said the move will allow a single sign-on for customers of both cloud services.
“As NetSuite customers and ecosystem have evolved, new types of cloud have evolved in a complimentary way,” he said. “Once you sign-on to NetSuite you will be signed onto the other services. The next level of integration is about exporting data from NetSuite to Excel spreadsheet equivalents and emails.”
The move was welcomed by Online One director, Donald McLean, who claimed it would significantly boost the customers available to the vendor's partners.
“It is big, big news,” he said. “We can go to customers and say we can run your entire business infrastructure without having to buy any Microsoft services. You don't need to have Outlook, servers or any of that because this will work.”
“At the moment NetSuite has calendar functions, but this is an ERP solution. Out of 100 desktops, only 40 will have NetSuite so you can't run your calendar out of it because you'll be splitting 60 people off. If this thing comes to pass, we'll absolutely be a Google partner.”
The new cloud solution will be introduced by year’s end.
The move comes one month after it launched its solution into Google's App store]].
