Telecommunications company Lanka Bell has partnered with IBM
- traditionally known as ‘Big Blue’ - to speed up cloud adoption in Sri Lanka. Lanka Bell, which has headquarters in Colombo, Sri Lanka, is the island state’s largest fixed wireless operator and its second largest fixed phone operator. Together the two companies will offer cloud services for enterprises, startups, and government organizations.
IBM and Lanka Bell’s relationship spans more than two decades and their most recent cooperation underscores their shared vision for enterprise customers. The partnership will see Lanka Bell promote the adoption of IBM’s cloud platform with both companies involved in marketing and selling IaaS and PaaS services that include public, private and hybrid clouds, workload migration, and disaster recovery options.
"IBM cloud is open by design, offering a set of tools, flexibility and agility that helps organizations of all sizes and developers to easily translate their innovative ideas into technical solutions and business models," explained IBM, Sri Lanka’s Country General Manager, Chrishan Fernando. "The collaboration is built on our two companies' long history of bringing innovation to business. We are confident that our cloud platform and joint offerings will enable customers to support new ways to work in an era shaped by cognitive and digital transformation."Do you know of any other companies involved in new partnerships?
