As the region’s leading full service business solutions partner, Digicel Business is launching its new Cloud platform, featuring the latest suite of cloud solutions. Working with Citrix, Cisco and Microsoft, the leading global cloud technology providers, Digicel Business now offers the region’s most advanced integrated cloud solutions portfolio.
Located at Digicel’s Tier III accredited* Datacentre in Jamaica, with dedicated sub platforms in Bermuda, Panama and Trinidad and Tobago, Digicel’s Cloud platform is the most secure data-hosting platform in the Caribbean and Central America. Digicel’s Cloud platform ensures all data and information is securely managed and resides in the Caribbean jurisdiction – making it the largest in-market private cloud in the region.
With Digicel’s Cloud, SMEs, Government departments and large companies alike can operate their IT environments for a fraction of the cost of building their own infrastructure. Leveraging Digicel’s Cloud platform to provide core applications, data backup and business email they can greatly reduce spending on technology infrastructure and IT resources while at the same time improving their security and flexibility.
Using solutions delivered with Digicel’s Cloud platform, customers are experiencing an average saving of 25% on their current IT costs, and the move to a monthly payment model ensures there’s no need to invest vital working capital on internal IT. These savings can now be directed to enhancing new products or services that can drive revenue growth or simply improve user access and satisfaction. Moreover, Cloud Services deliver real productivity and flexibility gains, giving customers access to their applications and data from any location securely – at any time and from any device.
Business Solutions Director- Eastern Caribbean South, Martin Keogh, said, “The role of technology in business success has shifted in a way that makes cloud computing very difficult to ignore. The technology decision makers in today’s organisations are no longer solely responsible for the management of IT, but also for supporting business growth and organisation effectiveness by reducing costs and delivering rapid, secure “anytime, anywhere” access to IT resources in an effort to build a strategic advantage.”
“We have the highest level of service provider partner accreditations with each of these global leaders, which reflects their recognition of our capabilities and commitment in this regard. With the launch of Digicel’s advanced Cloud platform, we are delivering the next generation in leading technology innovations to our customers, enabling us to partner with them in a more meaningful way and enabling them to be more successful.” concluded Keogh.
