Gravitant Announces Cloud Service Brokerage as a Service
Press Release, News
Gravitant today announced an Early Access Program for channel partners to its award winning cloudMatrix cloud service brokerage-as-a-service:
- Opportunity to white-label a cloud services brokerage through an easy-to-implement SaaS platform
- Easily aggregate, deliver, and monetize new cloud services
- Manage all billing, invoicing, and individual pricing as needed for different customers
- Profit from the cloud while strengthening customer relationships
Cloud adoption by businesses has created pressure on the business model for IT channel partners. For many, the traditional enterprise hardware resell business is shrinking, with IDC reporting that global server revenue declined 6.2% in the second quarter of 2013. In contrast, Gartner Research has predicted that cloud IaaS revenue will grow at 43% annually through 2016.
As their cloud usage grows, IT organizations will need help managing the complexity of using cloud to get the full benefit that it provides. IT channel partners have an opportunity to serve as a cloud service broker and provide their customers with an "Expedia-like" capability to design a solution application infrastructure, select the best cloud services provider, easily order and provision cloud services, and receive a consolidated bill.
Gravitant's cloudMatrix platform providers channel partners with a unified service delivery platform that they can use to integrate and deliver complete IT-as-a-Service solutions. It also provides key business management capabilities such as aggregated billing, customer account management, and a sophisticated pricing engine. With the new Gravitant CSB-as-a-Service offering, IT channel partners will be able to more easily and quickly adopt this new business model.
