Exploit the cloud to boost your agility

Invest in your own integrated platform ‘as a service’ rather than build it.

Overview

You need to work out the best way for your organisation to do business in the digital age.

You could combine services with your partners, and make these available through a retail or wholesale model. Then you could cross-sell to each other, opening up new revenue opportunities and delivering a network effect.  

Or, you could use a platform to reconcile cost versus revenue through an integrated reporting, settlement and billing management system. That way, you could establish profit centres for your services across your business so that each department is charged for the services they consume. 

It can be difficult to develop common platform standards that work across different subsidiaries and partners. Things like on-boarding new services, order management, billing and finance are key components for your digital business. But increasing complexity means these platforms are taking much longer to bring to market and are becoming more and more expensive to do. 

Our digital ‘platform as a service’ is a pre-built platform that can be tailored for you quickly and more cost-effectively, which is a world first according to GlobalData and Gartner.

The growth in cloud-based applications is one of the most significant changes in recent times.

This has been driven by the move to cloud-based services, such as Microsoft O365 and Salesforce and the availability of low cost storage services, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The internet doesn’t always provide the connectivity you need to these important services. It needs to be a secure, reliable, high performance connection, so we offer connectivity to cloud providers from our MPLS network. We already have connections to Microsoft, AWS, Salesforce, DXC technology, Oracle and IBM. We can provide you high performance, secure connections to these services from your BT network in a few days.

MPLS isn’t dead. It’s the backbone of any global network, delivering global availability, performance and security.

And as bandwidth demand escalates, our 10GB capability becomes increasingly attractive. Cloud connectivity is also key, and sometimes the internet just isn’t enough. We give you secure and reliable direct connection to a range of different cloud providers, such as Microsoft, Amazon, SalesForce and IBM. Our MPLS is also the perfect platform for new network services, like SD-WANs, that use MPLS as part of a hybrid network to improve the performance of your applications.

We have decades of experience in delivering and supporting global MPLS-based networks.
