Global ITO and BPO services provider Patni Computer Systems (Cambridge, Mass.) has announced the first in a series of consulting and software services initiatives designed to help customers accelerate deployment to a cloud computing environment, according to press release issued by the vendor. The first offering, Cloud Acceleration Program (CAP), gives independent service providers and application developers a structured, business-driven approach based on what the vendor characterizes as its proven processes and methodologies that take the guesswork out of the transition to cloud based solutions.
Patni's cloud initiatives aim to provide the needed guidance to customers facing challenges migrating to public, private or hybrid cloud-based models, the Patni source adds. The CAP initiative is designed to contain customers' IT costs, protect critical assets, plan for disaster recovery, integrate global business processes, and advance business continuity and business agility, according to the vendor.
"Companies are trying to determine both the technical and financial merits of pursuing a cloud-based approach for all aspects of their IT footprints," says Satish Joshi, Executive Vice President and Global Technology Head, Patni Computer Systems. "Patni's cloud services initiatives will help customers make informed choices about their IT environments to ensure a smooth, rapid transition to the cloud while minimizing risk and keeping operating expenses in check."
