Platform provides improved management of access to cloud services
Cloud Services Brokerage enablement company Jamcracker and Dutch IT services company KPN have partnered to create a cloud services aggregator platform for enterprise customers which encompasses Jamcracker’s cloud services brokerage platform, enabling KPN to provide value-added services for their customers.
With the new model, IT and telecom providers can expand and optimise their service offerings with a platform that helps enterprises converge and manage cloud and non-cloud services, providing a flexible foundation for innovation and accelerated time to market.
KPN has brought the new model to life through its services aggregator platform by working with Jamcracker and utilising the Jamcracker Services Delivery Network (JSDN) and the platform not only offers KPN services, but also third party and customer legacy services and delivers them ‘as a service.’
In addition, the KPN platform supports enterprises by providing improved management of access to cloud services, identity management, performance reporting and enhanced security, which in turn, delivers cost savings, increased productivity and device independent delivery resulting in flexibility and a whole new way of working.
KPN Corporate Market CEO Steven van Schilfgaarde said the KPN cloud aggregation and delivery platform leverages KPN’s telecommunications and IT expertise to help the company deliver on its strategy to converging information, technology and telecommunications and to optimise opportunities for KPN customers.
"By partnering with Jamcracker, we are able to work together on this vision and utilize the JSDN to quickly deliver a platform that sets a standard among enterprises," said Schilfgaarde.
Jamcracker CEO and chairman KB Chandrasekhar said KPN has shown leadership and vision in its commitment to delivering the aggregation platform for enterprises.
"The KPN platform is the first instance of an enterprise cloud brokerage operating on a global scale, making it easy for enterprises to assemble and collect services creating an internal marketplace of cloud and non-cloud applications that enterprises can leverage for operational efficiency and increased revenue," said Chandrasekhar.
