Infosys today announced the launch of cloud integration software solutions, Cloud Ecosystem Hub.
This, according to the company, will enable its existing and future clients to adopt, manage and govern cloud computing solutions.
Vishnu Bat, Vice-President and Global Head-Cloud, told Business Line: “Businesses can now accelerate time-to-market of cloud computing related services up to 40 per cent, improve productivity by up to 20 per cent and achieve cost-savings of up to 30 per cent.” Further, this solution will work with private, public cloud and hybrid clouds (which is a combination of private and public clouds). A private cloud is where a company keeps existing IT infrastructure within its premises and uses solutions on a need basis and in a public cloud, the IT infrastructure resides online and is used on a need basis.
According to Bhat, the Infosys cloud solutions come with features such as unified self-service catalogue that enables enterprises to subscribe to business services across multiple environments such as mainframe or Web. It provides a single-window view of the enterprise cloud ecosystem and a single view of fragmented IT environments thereby enabling monitoring of resource usage.
Infosys has collaborated with providers of cloud infrastructure, applications and platforms such as Amazon Web Services, HP, IBM, Microsoft and others. The cloud business is a part of the products and platforms business and in FY 2012 contributed about 6 per cent of Infosys revenues.
