London/Zurich, January 14, 2015 – Management and technology consultancy BearingPoint announced today the signing of a contract with BT for the implementation and use of its Infonova R6 platform to enhance BT’s data center co-location and cloud services portfolio which include storage offerings as well as software applications from third parties, across multiple countries, with the appropriate language and currency.
BT’s Cloud Compute helps CIOs build powerful ‘pay as you go’ cloud solutions with high levels of quality, security and service delivered from BT. It is available in 20 countries across five continents and is used by multinational companies from a variety of industry sectors. By using BT’s advanced cloud orchestration of infrastructure, network, applications and services, customers can align costs directly to their business needs.
BearingPoint’s Infonova R6 platform enables BT to seamlessly on-board and aggregate new cloud services and software applications so that they can be offered as new products and services to customers who can exploit the full benefits of cloud and digital transformation. R6 also enables BT to provide white-label facilities to third parties that are seeking to sell their own cloud and application services. It enables them to offer and monetize their services as bundles in combination with BT and other third party services.
Angus Ward, Partner at BearingPoint, said: “We are delighted that BT has chosen BearingPoint and Infonova R6 to enhance its cloud offering.” Andrew Thomson, Director for Infonova R6 Solutions at BearingPoint, commented: “As an end-to-end full business lifecycle multi-tenant platform, R6 has been designed to enable compute and other technology product bundles for cloud services and beyond. In the first instant, this allows BT to deliver to their customers’ sophisticated IT and cloud requirements.”
Neil Lock, Vice President, BT Compute at BT Global Services, said: “At BT, we see Cloud as much more than just another trend or technology. To us, Cloud is about the service and the possibilities it opens locally and globally, helping CIOs find solutions their markets and regulation demand. This agreement with BearingPoint enables us to further improve our cloud platform by adding new services such as Apps from BT and BT Compute Storage. Those are now available to our customers through a single point of control within our Compute Management System, helping CIOs orchestrate their cloud resources and thus realize the possibilities in the cloud.”
Infonova, specializing in enterprise software, state of the art IT and communications technology development, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of BearingPoint. Encapsulating decades of knowledge, Infonova’s latest BSS product, R6, is a J2EE platform that supports complex multi-tenant operations for advanced cloud-based digital business models. www.infonova.com
