Automated Systems Holdings Limited, a global IT partner based in Hong Kong, has partnered with Equinix, an international data center provider, to inaugurate their first Unified Operation Center in Asia Pacific.
The UOC will look to drive digital transformation for ASL’s global customers in cybersecurity, data centers and Internet of Things related services.
Leon Wang, the CEO and Executive Director of ASL, said: “The global digital transformation continues despite the impact of the pandemic on the economy. ASL’s tenet is to optimize DevSecOps … to help customers manage costs more effectively and boost business.”
ASL expects to invest more than HK$10 million on the UOC in the next five years to meet the growing demand for IT managed services and digital transformation.
The service unifies applications, cybersecurity and omni-channel managed services to help IT operators solve challenges like launching agile software, analysing an avalanche of enterprise data and ensuring data security.
Larry Tam, the Managing Director of Equinix in Hong Kong, said: “It allows ASL’s varied customers to flexibly, promptly and directly connect to any network and cloud providers, while shortening the project implementation time and reducing the Total Ownership Cost.”
The UOC services will support both infrastructure and multiple cloud platforms like private, public and hybrid cloud by implementing the Group’s new “as-a-service” business model and DevSecOps.
Mr Tam added: “Equinix IBX data centers bring multiple cloud service providers together.”
Equinix partners with global cloud players to provide enterprises with services like Alibaba Cloud, AWS, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud and Microsoft Azure.
ASL hopes the new UOC will allow enterprises to achieve digital transformation with more agility, efficiency and security.
