The partnership will enable organisations to deploy and access Google Cloud services through Tata Communications’ IZO Managed Cloud platform. The organisations will also be provided with end-to-end services, including cloud architecture planning, workload migration and ongoing operational support.

The company’s IZO Cloud Command portal helps integrate different enterprise IT environments into a single dashboard to simplify management of the IT estate. It also offers a unified cloud experience and provides a comprehensive view of IT resource utilisation across on-premise and private Google Cloud.

“The current demands on enterprises to manage and optimise their cloud solutions has never been more important, especially in the wake of Covid-19 and our increasing reliance on cloud infrastructure,” says Rajesh Awasthi, Global Head of Cloud and Managed Hosting Services at Tata Communications.

“The true test of 2021 will be how organisations adopt a cloud first approach. Through our partnership with Tata Communications, we will be able to provide our customers with a unified, end-to-end experience that will remove the complexity in cloud management and help them transform at speed and scale,” said Amitabh Jacob, Head of Partners and Alliances at Google Cloud India.
