EMC Corporation today announced an expanded portfolio of cloud services to help customers accelerate the adoption, consumption, optimization, and management of cloud technologies. The new services help customers accelerate their IT transformation initiatives, enabling IT to more quickly deliver ITaaS to their clients, thereby helping customers to fully realize the benefits of efficiency and agility gained through all phases of their cloud computing. The new EMC services announced today address the transformation of people, process and technology and range from strategy and business case development, to design and deployment, to support, optimization, and education.
Comprehensive Capabilities Help Customers Accelerate IT Transformation and Achieve ITaaS
The new cloud services align to the following three critical elements necessary to deliver ITaaS: cloud infrastructure, cloud optimized applications, and end-user computing. EMC’s portfolio now includes:
Cloud Infrastructure Services: New services to help clients define the right architectural design for their cloud strategy: hybrid, public, and private, and enable clients to accelerate the adoption and benefits of cloud technology solutions, including converged infrastructure.
Cloud Optimized Applications: New services to help customers accomplish their Application Rationalization and Modernization objectives and enable customers to accelerate the virtualization of mission-critical applications. The new services also enable Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), Application Replatforming, and Application Infrastructure Optimization.
End-user Computing: New services to help customers accelerate the move to Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) using technologies like VMware® View™ and the incorporation of Mobile Platforms.
EMC’s joint vision, technology alignment and services capabilities for cloud computing are aligned with VMware and its ability to leverage best-of-breed technologies from strategic relationships with Cisco, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP and VCE is unparalleled. These new services also enable EMC’s Velocity partner ecosystem to achieve greater competitiveness and profitability by complementing their portfolios with EMC’s expertise and industry-leading services capabilities.
EMC’s award-winning Global Services organization provides strategic guidance to enable the transformation of IT architectures to help customers achieve IT efficiency and business agility through planning, designing, implementing, and optimizing cloud and virtualization infrastructures.
