The expanded arrangement means that effective on Wednesday, Nexon began offering businesses the Alcatel-Lucent OpenTouch Enterprise Cloud (OTEC) communications technologies in Australia.
According to ALE’s Asia Pacific (APAC) Regional Cloud Director, Steve Saunders, “Cloud adoption in Australia is growing rapidly and businesses are seeking new and different consumption models specific to their industries.”
“Nexon, who have been an important ALE partner for many years, continues to look for and bring innovative business solutions to customers. That shared purpose and our combined experience is an excellent fit for our joint ambitions to grow in cloud.”
“Working together, ALE and Nexon will help businesses achieve tangible business outcomes via technology that provides new consumption models that leverage the flexibility of cloud services.”
Commenting on the expanded partnership, Nexon’s Co-Founder and Director, Barry Assaf said the strategic progression of the relationship is a logical next step for both companies. “We have formed a very strong relationship with ALE over many years as a Premium Business Partner, which has seen our values become closely aligned. We’re delighted to now extend that to the cloud.
“Our thinking is congruent with the value proposition created by ALE’s commercial approach to the cloud, which has seen us modify our internal structure to capitalise on this new consumption model. We’re looking forward to now passing on the benefits of cloud-based delivery to our customers.”
