Aven­tude part­ners In­front Asia Pa­cific to en­able end to cloud solutions

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - ICT -

Aven­tude, the lat­est Sri Lankan-based dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion ser­vices com­pany re­cently an­nounced that it is en­ter­ing into a strate­gic part­ner­ship with In­front Asia Pa­cific, an award win­ning pioneer re­gional spe­cial­ist in cloud and data cen­tre con­sult­ing in the APAC re­gion for the past 10 years.

Aven­tude pro­vides end-toend cloud im­ple­men­ta­tions in­clud­ing cloud gov­er­nance strate­gies, poly-cloud strate­gies, IOT and data an­a­lyt­ics, cost-ef­fec­tive cloud ar­chi­tec­ture mod­els, app mod­erni­sa­tion and data gov­er­nance.

The new strate­gic part­ner­ship be­tween the two com­pa­nies will help each to ex­pand its ser­vices from strate­gic ad­vi­sory ser­vices to in­fra­struc­ture sup­port and main­te­nance in all top cloud plat­forms such as Azure, AWS, Google and Alibaba Cloud.

In­front Asia Pa­cific Re­gional Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Ray­mond Chou said: “In­front is on a mis­sion to im­prove the lives of IT pro­fes­sion­als by be­ing a trusted part­ner in dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion. Through our part­ner­ship with Aven­tude, we are able to bet­ter ser­vice our cus­tomers by pro­vid­ing more value in their cloud trans­for­ma­tion jour­ney in the ar­eas of cloud readi­ness as­sess­ments, app mod­erni­sa­tion and cloud Devops. We can of­fer all these ser­vices much bet­ter by bring­ing Aven­tude and In­front to work closer to­gether in the re­gion.”

The cloud mar­ket is grow­ing rapidly. Gart­ner Inc, a well-known lead­ing tech­nol­ogy re­search and ad­vi­sory com­pany, fore­casts world­wide pub­lic cloud rev­enue growth of 17.3 per­cent in 2019 to a to­tal of US$206.2 bil­lion, up from US$175.8 bil­lion in 2018. In 2018, Gart­ner fore­cast that the mar­ket would grow by 21 per­cent, up from US$145.3 bil­lion in 2017.

By 2022, Gart­ner ex­pects that 90 per­cent of or­gan­i­sa­tions pur­chas­ing pub­lic cloud Iaas will do so from ser­vice providers who pro­vide in­te­grated ca­pa­bil­i­ties. Such de­mand in the mar­ket cre­ates great op­por­tu­ni­ties for en­ter­prise space for ca­pa­ble ser­vice providers.

Adding to his com­ments about the new part­ner­ship and fu­ture tech­nol­ogy di­rec­tion of the start-up tech com­pany, Aven­tude CTO Thu­ru­pathan Vi­jayaku­mar said: “As a mod­ern-day tech­nol­ogy solutions provider and a spe­cial­ist in cloud trans­for­ma­tion space, we are de­lighted to part­ner with In­front who is well-es­tab­lished in the en­ter­prise cloud in­fra­struc­ture landscape. To­day, en­ter­prises de­mand of­fer­ings with more breadth and depth for their hy­brid en­vi­ron­ments. Strate­gic ini­tia­tives such as dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion projects re­sult­ing in the adop­tion of multi-cloud and hy­brid cloud fuel the growth of this mar­ket. The out­come of our part­ner­ship helps us to ac­cess a wider mar­ket in the re­gion to pro­vide our ex­per­tise with in­te­grated Iaas, Paas and Saas of­fer­ings to drive en­ter­prise cloud in­fra­struc­ture adop­tion.”

Is the com­pany that owns the web­site a true ex­pert in their re­spec­tive field? On­line shop­ping web­sites have mush­roomed over the years. How­ever, the com­pa­nies be­hind these sites often do not have strong in­dus­try ex­pe­ri­ence in their re­spec­tive fields, and are there­fore ill-equipped to deal with aris­ing con­sumer de­mands. Aim to use sites hosted by com­pa­nies that al­ready pos­sess sub­stan­tial his­tory and ex­pe­ri­ence in re­tail. For ex­am­ple, Buya­bans.com is the dig­i­tal re­tail chan­nel of Abans, an or­gan­i­sa­tion that boasts 50 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in Sri Lanka’s home ap­pli­ances and elec­tron­ics in­dus­try.

Does the site pro­vide le­git­i­mate prod­ucts? The new­est up and com­ing web­site may sound ex­cit­ing
