Business benefits

Upside to spare

The business benefits of cloud are well established—greater flexibility, increased agility, greater productivity, and reduced CAPEX can all be achieved with a smart cloud strategy. Providing a highly automated environment, cloud allows the enterprise to scale with business demands instantly. The right cloud strategy can offers the potential to upgrade the business and functional applications rapidly without the large upfront technology costs typically required by traditional IT investment.

Best practices

Subsequently our ability to provide customers with an agile and dynamic cloud offer that scales up and down with their demands is vital. We created a cost-effective cloud solution called Elastic ComputePlatform that allows us to rapidly scale without affecting resources. For our customers, this negates the need for capital outlay, and the customer pays only for what they use
