LONDON, April 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Multi cloud management and resource visibility for control of an ICT estate
NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the ICT solutions and international communications business within NTT (NTT), announced today that its Cloud Management Platform is now available in Europe. It offers customers using multiple clouds, a single-pane view of their resources to help them take control over the management of their ICT estates.
Amongst the early adopters of Cloud Management Platform is Xura, which provides messaging platform services for 8 out of 10 global operators. Francesco Casi, VP for Cloud and Professional Services, Xura said, "Cloud Management Platform is what we have been waiting for. The fact that it works with all the popular public cloud providers makes it a very useful management tool for us. Since using it we have seen improved control over spending by visualizing cloud costs. In addition, the ability to tag assets means that we can do accurate IT resource cost allocation either by customer, by project or by business unit."
Many Clouds - One Interface
NTT Com's Cloud Reality Check survey found that having multiple clouds in your ICT estate is the new normal with over 80% of respondents expecting to see an increase in the number of cloud platforms they use. Cloud Management Platform addresses this trend of multi-cloud ICT estate and its management. It simplifies cloud management by enabling both traditional and cloud native customers to discover resources and information about financial spend from service providers including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and NTT Communications Enterprise Cloud.
Clarity From Data
"Cloud Management Platform cuts through cloud data complexity for customers" said Damian Skendrovic, CEO, NTT Communications Managed Services. "Rather than prescribing what the customer needs to see, we have provided a powerful tool to help them view information about their ICT infrastructure in one place. This way, customers can focus on the most relevant data and make informed decisions, like Xura."
The roadmap for Cloud Management Platform includes the ability to identify resources and apply policies over a variety of information systems and Software as a Service (SaaS) initiatives. Its control capabilities will enable customers to capitalize on the benefits of cloud, whilst staying within both compliance and budget.
