The expansion of Cloudscene’s product portfolio comes in response to what the company says are industry demands for solutions that better enable the global market to connect to Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud, Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud, Alibaba Cloud and VMware.
The launch of Cloud Pathfinder at International Telecoms Week 2019 is the first phase of Cloudscene’s wider procurement solution that it claims will streamline the way the telecommunications industry communicates and transacts.
“Cloud adoption plays a key role in enterprise digital transformation. Yet the process for an enterprise to connect their network or data centre resources to a cloud provider is often manual, time-consuming and lacking in market intelligence,” said Belle Lajoie, chief executive, Cloudscene.
According to Lajoie, with Gartner recently forecasting a 17.5% increase in worldwide public cloud revenue to US$214.3 billion in 2019, Cloud Pathfinder will play a critical role in supporting global cloud transactions and enterprises implementing a multi-cloud strategy.
“Cloud Pathfinder is the first independent cloud procurement solution for the industry. With this tool, enterprises can make more informed decisions that drive performance and return on investment on their cloud infrastructure,” Lajoie said.
“By combining our deep knowledge of the industry with Cloudscene’s neutral and trusted data-driven platform, we believe we are revolutionising the way enterprises will transact now and into the future.”
Cloudscene says major global cloud providers are collaborating directly with the company to utilise Cloud Pathfinder as a sales enablement tool for their global field teams, relying on the app’s data centre and on-net building data to support their customer’s evolving requirements.
Integrated with Cloudscene’s directory, Cloud Pathfinder’s data is derived from the connectivity information of more than 7100 service providers the company says it has listed.
