Hitachi Consulting announced its enterprise Cloud Management Centre (CMC), a unified cloud service broker offering designed to help organisations struggling with cloud complexity. The new solution, which integrates cloud automation and transformation technology with enterprise cloud consulting services, helps simplify and speed-up cloud adoption, and can reduce total cost of ownership for those clients.
CMC functions as a cloud service broker to deliver a centralised solution for aggregating, customising, and automating cloud services from multiple providers. The new solution optimises cloud application design and delivery with dynamic sourcing, automated provisioning to multiple third-party cloud platforms, and integration of value-added cloud services such as monitoring, security, and managed services that may not be available from a single provider.
This cloud management solution integrates comprehensive consulting services and modular cloud solution packages for customers that are aligned with the cloud delivery model. Together, cloud consulting services and powerful CMC technology can help position CIOs as the central cloud service broker for their organisation that can enable effective cloud adoption with centralised governance and control.
“CMC is the first cloud service broker solution offering that combines consulting services and modular cloud solution packages that are aligned with the cloud delivery model,” said Brian Erickson, senior vice president of Hitachi Consulting’s strategic technology practice. “The technology that enables CMC was designed specifically for large business and government organisations, to minimise the complexity of the cloud by centralising, automating, and streamlining cloud sourcing, procurement, implementation, management, security, and governance.”
Possible benefits that can be achieved with Hitachi Consulting’s new multi-cloud management service include improved IT service quality, speed, and agility, single point of cloud accountability and control, up to 30% reduction in IT costs, and up to 50% reduction in cloud resource management and cloud project deployment time.
