At Cisco Live in Melbourne this week, Optus Business and Alphawest launched a new “Your IT as a Service” service based on the Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud that delivers an on-premise cloud service to enable IT departments to easily deploy and manage IT products and services across their organisation from a single portal. Read a story in local Australian channel publication Australian Reseller News (here).
Through a pre-built solution, Optus Business and Alphawest enables its customers to automatically provision services for specific users while business departments can self-service their request, such as additional storage or email services, significantly reducing deployment time from weeks to a matter of minutes.
Optus Business and Alphawest’s launch follows the implementation of a bespoke private cloud solution for Mantra Group which we announced last year (see press release here). The success of the private cloud implementation that Mantra Group rolled out was instrumental in the development of “Your IT as a Service”.
