NTT launches new private cloud for enterprises in Singapore and Hong Kong

NTT announced the launch of a new Private Cloud for Enterprise service in Hong Kong and Singapore today to help clients meet growing demands in their digital transformation journeys.

The new service is a core component of the global technology services provider’s Intelligent Data Center and hybrid cloud capabilities.

“Enterprises today are using various applications with a large amount of data stored in various platforms and they want to manage their hybrid IT securely,” said Masaaki Moribayashi, the Senior Executive Vice President of Services for NTT Ltd.

Hybrid IT and cloud adoption is becoming more and more essential in enabling business growth and digital transformation by bringing benefits like greater scalability, cost efficiency and security. This has resulted in the Hybrid Cloud market rising from a value of US$45.70 billion in 2019 to an estimated US$128 billion by 2025.

“Our Private Cloud service will specifically target high growth sectors supporting clients to manage their critical applications, including SAP, to enhance the agility and flexibility in securely managing large volumes of data in the cloud,” added Mr. Moribayashi.

The private cloud market adoption is also growing as part of its role in the hybrid cloud environment, as enterprises recognise how private cloud can support key security, governance, performance and regulatory compliance requirements.

“Financial clients can quickly develop new businesses by incorporating the latest technologies while complying with security regulation in each country. Manufacturers can fuel growth of their business leveraging private cloud to power critical and time-sensitive business operations,” said Mr. Moribayashi.

The new Private Cloud for Enterprise service by NTT in Hong Kong and Singapore will add to their existing coverage in the United States and Europe.

“We are proactive in our development of high-performance software solutions and with Private Cloud for Enterprise, we are able to leverage the most up-to-date technology to deliver enhanced network economics to our customers,” said Ramnik Kamo, the EVP for Global Operations and CIO of Mavenir.

NTT intends to invest further in Hong Kong and Singapore to expand its capabilities to address the market needs for customised and dedicated private cloud deployments.

“Cloud is now recognized broadly by enterprises as a critical part of their IT infrastructure, and a key to enabling transformation strategies. Enterprises should view hybrid cloud as a core, strategic initiative,” said Liam Eagle, the Research Director at 451 Research, which is a part of S&P Global Market Intelligence.

In June, NTT Data, a partially-owned subsidiary of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT), also announced an alliance with Microsoft to accelerate enterprise customer’s digital transformation using Microsoft Azure as their preferred cloud solution.

Microsoft and NTT DATA announce cloud alliance to accelerate enterprise digital transformation

Microsoft and NTT DATA have announced an alliance to accelerate enterprise customer’s digital transformation using Microsoft Azure as their preferred cloud solution.

The partnership will bring together NTT DATA’s global IT services and Microsoft’s cloud platform and AI technologies to help accelerate business and increase workplace productivity.

“Together, we will continue exploring new solutions opportunities and added value for our clients,” said Alex Simons, the Corporate Vice President of ID Program Management at Microsoft.

The key initiatives of the strategic collaboration include innovating workstyle, transforming NTT DATA’s organisational culture and enhancing solutions for customers to digitally transform.

Plans to support digital transformation by developing around 10,000 employees worldwide who are qualified with digital technologies and Microsoft cloud certifications are being drawn up by NTT DATA.

“NTT DATA is committed to helping enterprises realise their digital transformation,” said Yo Honma, the President and CEO of NTT DATA.

The companies will look to streamline business operations and increase productivity by enhancing NTT DATA’s everis knowler, their knowledge management solution and WinActor, a robotics process automation tool.

Microsoft Azure’s migration and managed services will be implemented for mission-critical systems such as SAP and support the acceleration of digital transformation across industries.

Both companies will propose workstyle changes to clients in all industries through focused security offerings and collaboration tools.

NTT DATA, a leading Japan-based global IT services provider, will also explore Microsoft’s AI for Health philanthropic program to tackle some of the toughest global health challenges and support the United Nations’ sustainable development goals in the areas of AI imaging.

The partnership between NTT DATA and Microsoft is an expansion of the tech giant’s alliance with the parent company NTT Corporation announced in December 2019.

The multi-year strategic alliance aimed to form a Global Digital Fabric, which combined Microsoft Cloud and NTT’s public cloud, global data center and network infrastructures. This initiative looked to create a highly sustainable and robust environment for enterprises to focus on their digital ambitions around the world.
