IBM SoftLayer cloud to transform Korea web portal developer Enkiwi

Enkiwi, a web portal development vendor in Korea, has adopted IBM SoftLayer cloud to transform its business model.

SoftLayer’s cloud infrastructure enables Enkiwi to deploy new solutions for its clients across Korea in minutes rather than days.

Enkiwi opted to move to the cloud platform from a traditional IT environment to ensure better speed, agility and performance.

The tie up with IBM will enable Enkiwi to offer its EnView Enterprise, a web portal software solution, over cloud, using the software as a service (SaaS) model.

The company will provide cloud-based Social Networking Service (SNS) offering in the third quarter this year. Later, its enView cloud portal will provide its current web portal solution via cloud for organization and enterprise clients. Enkiwi is also looking at offering cloud based collaboration functions like instant messaging and video conferencing in the third quarter of 2015.

Enkiwi will benefit from its lower networking costs, with free data traffic service between the internal systems and data centers.
