COMPANY NEWS:  Canon Business Services ANZ (CBS) has been recognised for Cloud Excellence in Snow Software’s Global 2022 Technology Intelligence Awards.

CBS overcame tough competition around the globe to take out the award, which recognises exceptional achievement in cloud management powered by Snow Commander. Measurable impacts for the award include cost optimisation, process automation, risk reduction, migration enablement and more.

“Receiving the Snow Technology Intelligence Award for Cloud Excellence really demonstrates our aspirations of providing a unique Cloud Management experience to our customers, says CBS head of cloud services Ricki Gavazis. “So far, we have received tremendous feedback from our customers regarding the features and functionality that the Cloud Management Platform (CMP) provides.”

“Our product roadmap seeks to further extend and strengthen the capability of the CloudMetro CMP, bringing additional orchestration, automation, governance and control across our customers hybrid cloud estates. Having a global company like Snow Software recognise Canon Business Services as the leading global organisation in this space, further cements our plans of leveraging this product and its capability to provide additional value and service to our customers.”

Additional impacts that led to the CBS team’s win included:

  • Provisioning time of workloads and resources have been significantly reduced which means that CBS customers (and internal support teams) can now provision workloads in a matter of minutes instead of “days”.
  • Canon have automated and dramatically improved service so that customers can now provision via self-service (Commander) and have a virtual machine running within 10-20 minutes.
  • Today, no license renewals take place unless the Software Asset Management (SAM) team is involved, end-of-life/end-of-service is proactively planned for and the ServiceNow CMDB has far more accurate data powering the Service Desk.

More information on Canon Business Services is available on their website.
