BT, one of the world’s leading providers of communications solutions and services, last week announced new cloud collaboration services for its customers in Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa (AMEA) region. The symphony of cloud solutions are aimed at helping AMEA companies master the “Art of Connecting”, said BT in a statement.
As part of BT's unified communications & collaboration services portfolio, BT introduces cloud collaboration service on a pay per user basis such as BT One Cloud Cisco, a full Unified Communications offering high-definition (HD) voice, multiparty HD video, Instant Messaging (IM) and presence, and BT One Cloud Lync, a fully-managed private cloud service with enterprise unified communications suite.
BT is also launching its Cloud Connect program across AMEA which allows direct connection to BT’s network, enabling users to access its cloud services to various other software-as-a-service providers and to more than 200 third- party data centres around the world.
Kevin Taylor, President, BT Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa
We are proud to see our customers leverage the investments we have made in the AMEA region in the last few years. These have included improved network infrastructure, an enhanced product portfolio, strengthened field services, customer showcases and the establishment of service centres in the region. In the first half of this financial year, we have grown our revenue across the region by more than ten per cent and have doubled the value of our new orders compared with the same period last year. We are committed to continue building a healthier business and are continuing to invest in innovative solutions that customers will deploy and combine to deliver stunning business outcomes. In the last few months, those efforts have resulted in extensions of relationships with existing customers such as Deutsche Post DHL, Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore, as well as significant new contracts with well-known brands such as Genome Institute of Singapore, JABIL, Singapore Airlines, Williams Lea and WorleyParsons.
