Infosys Technologies launched a new solution—Infosys Cloud Ecosystem Hub— which will help companies manage their cloud applications and infrastructure through a single platform.
Cloud computing allows storage of data and access to software on a pay-per-use model, helping companies to cut costs as they do not have to invest in infrastructure."After 5-7 years, 60 percent of the IT workload is expected to be on the cloud, which is a mix of public and private cloud.
The solution is aimed to help companies manage fragmented IT environment, providing a unified platform and seamless experience," Infosys Vice-President and Global Head (Cloud) Vishnu Bhat said.
Using the solution, businesses can accelerate time-to-market of cloud services by up to 40 percent, improve productivity by up to 20 percent and achieve cost-savings of up to 30 percent, he added.
The solution helps clients select, compare and deploy cloud services from across providers. Decisions can be based on evaluation of over 20 parameters like quality of service, technology compatibility, regulatory compliance needs and total cost of ownership of application workloads.
"The solution will provide a single-window view of the ecosystem and brings cohesion into an otherwise fragmented IT environment —across private and public Cloud with on-premise IT.
It enables easy monitoring of cloud resource usage and optimises utilisation," Bhat said. He added the company will target both new and existing clients for the solution, especially in sectors like financial
services, lifesciences, retail, manufacturing, energy and utilities.
Infosys works with over 30 of the world's leading providers of cloud infrastructure, applications and platforms like Amazon Web Services, CA Technologies, Dell, Hitachi Data Systems, HP, IBM, Microsoft and VMware among others.
