BT announced new cloud services aimed at supporting the expansion plans of its customers in Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa (AMEA) and helping them orchestrate the most recent technology to deliver great business outcomes.
Backed by its global network infrastructure and leveraging its position as a leading provider of unified communications & collaboration services, BT launches BT One Cloud Cisco and BT One Cloud Lync.
BT is also launching its Cloud Connect program across AMEA. Customers across the region will now be able to connect directly through BT’s network to various other software-as-a-service providers and to more than 200 third- party data centres around the world. By building acceleration and security features into the network we are now increasing application performance, reducing bandwidth costs and improving security for our customers in the AMEA region. The Cloud Connect program also provides direct connections to BT’s own cloud services, including collaboration and unified communications, IT services and contact management. This reduces costs and speeds up delivery.
BT is also announcing the availability of BT for Life Sciences R&D in AMEA. BT for Life Science R&D is the first cloud service designed to enable collaboration within the life sciences industry for increased R&D productivity. It is specifically designed to allow organisations active in the life sciences, biotechnology, pharmaceutical and associated sectors to comply with stringent security, regulatory and compliance requirements while accessing the very high computational demands of R&D and adopting the latest in cloud computing, collaboration, and unified communications. The solution is based on the BT Cloud Compute platform and delivered through BT data centres. It has already been deployed with Genome Institute of Singapore and is being rolled out in Japan.
Kevin Taylor, President, BT Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, said: “We are proud to see our customers leverage the investments we have made in the AMEA region in the last few years. We are committed to continue building a healthier business and are continuing to invest in innovative solutions that customers will deploy and combine to deliver stunning business outcomes.“
