Financial advisory services provider, Deloitte, will implement the VMware vCloud Suite Enterprise to transform its internal operations by becoming a broker of technology services and in turn, meet growing business demands.
The move is part of Deloitte’s three-year IT strategy, and symbolises the beginning of its private Cloud journey.
Deloitte said it selected the vCloud suite due to VMware’s commitment to research and development, and its focus on the software defined datacentre (SDDC) space.
“Deloitte is using the VMware vCloud Suite to accelerate the vision of IT-as-a-service,” Deloitte Australia chief information officer (CIO), Tim Fleming, said.
“We have invested in VMware to expand our storage capacity and backup functions, and critically offer a secure environment that provides the reliability and agility that a high-performing business demands.”
Deloitte’s goal is to enable internal customers to auto-provision IT services which may not run on the company’s infrastructure, and to do so with minimal support from its IT organisation.
The company claims this will contribute to savings in support costs, and provide revenue benefits to Deloitte.
Commenting on the agreement, VMware Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ) vice-president and managing director, Duncan Bennet, said working with Deloitte provides VMware with a chance to “demonstrate the power of our vision of bringing IT-as-a-service into the hands of CIOs across the region.”
