Dialog and Ericsson Partner for Enterprise Cloud
Dialog Axiata and Ericsson are partnering to make Managed Enterprise Cloud services available in Sri Lanka to enable operators to create and provide software services flexibly and effectively.
Ericsson will install and integrate the Managed Enterprise Cloud framework in Dialog’s data centre and manage it remotely through the Ericsson Global Service Centres. Customers will access the shared enterprise service via a secure web portal.
Ericsson and Dialog will then launch the Managed Enterprise Cloud with a suite of business applications that will be made available as a set of services to enterprises in Sri Lanka. At launch, the applications will include an email server, a web client, a content management framework, a customer relationship management system and a content management platform in an integrated interface. With the Managed Enterprise Cloud, Dialog will serve all of its enterprise customers and consolidate other third-party application offerings with one platform, create increased efficiency and improve its time to market.
“This agreement signifies yet another innovative collaboration that aims to grow the nation’s cloud and enterprise business market segment, while in turn driving economic growth through innovative ICT advancements. Dialog has established its position as the premier connectivity solutions provider for Sri Lanka’s enterprise sector, and our strategic partnership with Ericsson will no doubt help strengthen our position,” said Azwan Khan, group chief operating officer, Dialog Axiata.
“We are extremely proud to forge this strategic and innovative cloud partnership with Dialog, which aims to support Dialog’s ambition to drive innovation and create additional business value for its Enterprise customer base across Sri Lanka. Both organizations embraced the opportunity to partner and collaboratively launch Managed Enterprise Cloud services in Sri Lanka, confirming our thought and technology leadership in Managed Services and the Cloud,” said Denis Brunetti, Head of Ericsson Sri Lanka.
