IBM Cloud centers
IBM said on Wednesday that several small and medium businesses across India have adopted its Cloud solutions to meet their organisational needs.

The list of companies using IBM Cloud includes, SEL Group, Polytech Instruments and Strategic Decisions Group (SDG). These companies are using IBM Connections Cloud, which enables them to significantly reduce operational costs, while improving productivity.

IBM Connections Cloud is a set of cloud-delivered online technologies that combine social networking and online collaboration, messaging, and web conference tools.

Textile conglomerate SEL Group adopted IBM Connections Cloud for increased collaboration between their sales and technical teams.

“The move to IBM Connections Cloud has allowed us to harness the power of social, mobile and cloud and generate real business value through greater workforce productivity, deeper customer engagement and improved operations. It has strongly integrated our operations across various locations,” said Z.S. Chaudhari, president, information technology at SEL Group.

Polytech Instruments, a supplier of scientific and laboratory instruments chose, IBM Connections Cloud to help their employees who travel frequently within India and overseas as part of business expansion.

Similarly, Strategic Decisions Group (SDG), a management consulting group, uses IBM Connections Cloud to effectively collaborate internally across teams and various departments to reduce their response time to clients.

In March this year, IBM had said several start-ups — Goldstar Healthcare, Vtiger, Clematix, Ecoziee Marketing — across India are utilizing SoftLayer as their cloud infrastructure platform.

IBM SoftLayer enables Indian start-ups to begin on a small scale and expand to meet workload demands without making huge investments in infrastructure development. Innovation at a faster pace, improve user experience and build affordable business models are some of the benefits of IBM cloud solutions.

IBM recently announced the opening of a new cloud resilience center in Research Triangle Park (RTP), North Carolina. To explore market opportunities, IBM will also open two new cloud based resiliency centers in Mumbai, India, and Izmir, Turkey.

Moreover, IBM opened a second Cloud data center in Jundiai, Sao Paulo, Brazil.  The new data center joins two other IBM Cloud data centers in Latin America-one located in Hortolandia, Sao Paulo and the other in Queretaro, Mexico.
