Software development and enterprise applications provider Softnet has partnered with Tata Communications to host its cloud-based ERP solutions on the IZO Private Cloud platform.
Tata Communications’ IZO Private Cloud platform is enabling Focus Softnet to offer its cloud-based ERP solutions either as a public cloud SaaS solution or as a private cloud option.
According to Rajesh Awasthi, Associate Vice President – Managed Hosting & Cloud Services, Tata Communications, Focus Softnet is moving its Focus 9 solution to Tata’ s IZO Private Cloud after a successful proof of concept on the Tata Communications cloud platform. Awasthi informed that during the six months of operations after startup, Tata Communications has been actively helping Focus Softnet onboard 40+ new customers.
Globally, companies have common demands such as flexible operational payments, scalability requirements, usage agility, and the option of global delivery anywhere and anytime, which are now met by the IZO Private Cloud platform,” explains Ali Hyder, Group CEO of Focus Softnet. “We now have a single point of contact to support our ERP software solutions. With the cloud service, we know immediately if there is a problem and can quickly fix it remotely. There is no need for on-premise visits. Tata Communications’ enterprise-grade service and support and its global footprint were deciding factors in our decision to migrate to IZO Private Cloud platform,” he adds.
Hyder, further said, “Prior to migrating to Tata Communications’ IZO Private Cloud platform, Focus Softnet was offering customers onsite perpetual licensing and was looking for a suitable partner for global hosting of its cloud-based Focus 9 application. With Tata Communications’ IZO Private Cloud platform, Focus Softnet is able to offer customers scalability and agility with its cloud software licensing, which is a flexible pay as you go model, and can deliver anytime, anywhere.”
Softnet now expects to provide end to end solution and round-the-clock support for its global customers. When new customers are onboarded, Tata Communications’ engineers would work closely to understand their needs and size the IZO Private Cloud offering accordingly. Depending on the customer requirements, Tata Communications would be offering either a dedicated virtual machine or shared cloud model, indiactes the spokesperson of Tata Communications.
