"This solution allows our clients to fully realize the benefits from the long-standing promise of the Cloud," said Vishnu Bhat, Vice-President and Global Head, Cloud, at Infosys, as Infosys on Tuesday launched the Infosys Cloud Ecosystem Hub.
It enables enterprises to create, adopt and govern cloud computing services across the ecosystem. Businesses can now accelerate time-to-market of Cloud services by up to 40 percent, improve productivity by up to 20 percent and achieve cost-savings of up to 30 percent.
"Our clients are dealing with complexities of a fragmented Cloud environment. The Infosys Cloud Ecosystem Hub provides organizations a unified gateway to build, manage and govern their hybrid cloud ecosystem," Bhat added.
According to Daryl C. Plummer, Group Vice President and Chief Gartner Fellow:
"As hybrid Cloud ecosystems are a reality today, there is a need for enterprises to work with Cloud services brokers for smartly assessing and brokering Cloud services. To truly unlock the challenges of managing a fragmented IT environment, it would be critical for enterprises to embrace Cloud services brokerages."
The Infosys Cloud Ecosystem Hub enables rapid adoption of Cloud services. The unified self-service catalog feature enables enterprises to quickly subscribe to relevant information technology (IT) and business services across multiple environments. The solution can dynamically provision IT infrastructure and platforms on a hybrid cloud environment in minutes.
The smart brokerage feature of the Infosys Cloud Ecosystem Hub provides an enterprise-wide decision support mechanism to select, compare and deploy Cloud services from across providers. Decisions can be based on evaluation of over 20 parameters such as quality of service, technology compatibility, regulatory compliance needs and total cost of ownership of application workloads. The Hub provides a single-window view of the enterprise Cloud ecosystem and brings cohesion into an otherwise fragmented IT environment - across private and public Cloud with on-premise IT. The solution enables easy monitoring of Cloud resource usage and optimizes utilization. It provides consolidated metering and billing thereby enabling service charge-backs.
