8x8 et SoftBank s'associent pour offrir des services de données cloud virtualisés

8x8, Inc. (NASDAQ : EGHT), un prestataire de solutions informatiques et de communications d'entreprise cloud, et SoftBank Telecom Corp. (ci-après SoftBank) ont annoncé aujourd'hui la signature d'un accord qui permettra à SoftBank d'obtenir le logiciel d'entreprise cloud par abonnement « Zerigo » de 8x8 sous licence.

Aux termes de cet accord, 8x8 va octroyer son logiciel Zerigo sous licence et développer un logiciel connexe supplémentaire permettant à Softbank de fournir des services d'interface de bureau virtuel (IBV) à ses clients du Japon et du monde entier. La combinaison du logiciel Zerigo et du nouveau logiciel IBV permettra à SoftBank d'offrir une suite complète de services cloud virtualisés à ses principales entreprises clientes en utilisant les produits Vblock de VCE, un leader en systèmes d'infrastructure cloud convergents.

Initialement, SoftBank va déployer ces services au Japon, mais envisage d'étendre rapidement leur déploiement dans le reste de l'Asie ainsi qu'en Europe, aux États-Unis et sur d'autres marchés clés dans le monde. SoftBank compte certaines des plus grandes entreprises au monde parmi ses clients pour ses services primés et envisage de commercialiser ces nouveaux services virtualisés innovants à ces mêmes clients. Cet accord procure à 8x8 des honoraires de développement et d'installation ainsi que des droits de licence continus dans le cadre d'un contrat initial de 36 mois.

« 8x8 se réjouit de s'associer à SoftBank pour offrir ces services de valeur à ses entreprises clientes », a déclaré le président et PDG de 8x8, Bryan Martin. « SoftBank est l'un des prestataires de services de télécommunications les plus souples et les plus performants au monde et la vitesse à laquelle la société progresse reflète la culture de 8x8 qui est de toujours mener plutôt que de suivre le marché ».

« SoftBank a sélectionné 8x8 après une recherche extensive de fournisseurs de logiciel répondant à l'engagement sans équivoque de 8x8 envers la qualité, l'évolutivité, la fiabilité et compétitivité des coûts », a déclaré Ken Miyauchi, directeur du conseil d'administration de SoftBank Telecom Corp. « SoftBank se réjouit de s'associer à une société aussi agile de Silicon Valley dont la culture reflète la nôtre et dont l'expérience en livraison de services cloud sera inestimable pour nous aider à accélérer le déploiement de services similaires au Japon. Nous nous attendons à ce que nos clients soient enchantés de ces nouvelles offres et nous sommes impatients d'étendre les marchés disponibles dans un proche avenir ».

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
