Challenge

As Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) became more of a commodity, the company found it beneficial to partner with larger providers such as Cisco and IBM SoftLayer. It initially built its own custom portal, but the cost and time to maintain it and to onboard new products was prohibitive.

Solution

Telstra implemented Ingram Micro Premium to replace a custom-developed cloud services portal. Now, customers can easily access a range of leading cloud solutions. Partnering with Ingram Micro Cloud has dramatically reduced total cost of ownership, specifically costs related to system updates and maintenance while reducing time to market.

Results

  • Access a range of leading cloud solutions
  • Dramatically reduced total cost of ownership
  • Reduced time to market
  • Replaced custom-developed portal with multi-cloud services portal
  • Extended IaaS offering
