By Asia Cloud Forum editors 18-Jun-2012
Fujitsu, which has a rapidly growing catalogue of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications and expertise in IT service management, and Nimsoft, an independent division of CA Technologies, have rolled out an IT Management as a Service (ITMaaS) in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.
Under a global partnership, Fujitsu has incorporated the Nimsoft Monitor and Nimsoft Service Desk solutions into its portfolio to be delivered from the Fujitsu Global Cloud Platform (FGCP). The ITMaaS capabilities can be applied to their private, public and hybrid cloud environments, as well as to their conventional IT infrastructure.
The addition of the Nimsoft solutions to FGCP will also benefit Fujitsu ISV customers, who are using it as a strategic delivery platform for their own SaaS offerings.
"By delivering a unified, cost-effective and rapidly deployable solution powered by Nimsoft, Fujitsu enables its customers to address their core monitoring and incident ticketing needs with better cost control and reduced complexities," said Sumal Karunanayake, vice president of Growth Markets in Asia Pacific Japan, CA Technologies. "We continue to deliver solutions that enable our partners worldwide to fulfill the growing market demand for cloud-based turnkey services that optimize IT performance and agility while lowering cost."
With comprehensive, flexible, and easily configurable ITMaaS solutions, Fujitsu plans to offer differentiated, revenue-generating cloud services to an increasingly wider range of enterprise, mid-market and ISV customers worldwide. "The Fujitsu ITMaaS solution provides customers with the necessary capabilities to achieve a high-performance environment in response to changing business demands," said Richard Wern, senior director of Regional Cloud Computing at Fujitsu Asia.
The FGCP delivers infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) -- including virtual ICT infrastructure, such as servers and storage -- over a network from Fujitsu data centers. It is available in Japan, Australia, the USA, Germany, the UK and Singapore to enterprise customers and ISVs.
