Australian-owned and operated financial services IT provider TAS is partnering with Alibaba Cloud — the cloud computing arm of Chinese Internet and e-commerce giant Alibaba Group — to offer a managed secure cloud system in the Australian market.

The two companies say the initial two-year partnership, to primarily span the APAC region, will solidify a new opportunity for businesses to access premium cloud managed and unmanaged services in Australia.

TAS chief executive Shane Baker says the partnership will be a game changer for the company, broadening TAS’ portfolio while enhancing the company’s competitive positioning in the growing Australian cloud market.

“As a trusted adviser in FSI, TAS is very pleased to be partnering with a highly regarded global cloud computing company that is cutting edge, with its services that will give our clients unparalleled advantages that align with our commitment to provide exceptional tech solutions.

“We will be able to leverage the huge Alibaba ecosystem across ecommerce, technology and finance arenas and our clients will be well-placed to connect into Asia.”

Baker said that while TAS would remain cloud vendor agnostic, customers would be provided with TAS Certified Alibaba engineers and trainers, impressive price points, and access to the latest technologies including facial recognition, AI, and analytics.

Alibaba Cloud’s ASEAN and ANZ general manager Raymond Ma said the partnership with TAS was a mutually beneficial tie-up that would add value to both firms and deliver customer outcomes.  

“Alibaba Cloud and TAS share the same commitment to customer excellence with a deep knowledge to deliver value through cutting-edge technology,” Ma said.

“We are happy to have found a like-minded business partner in TAS and look forward to setting a new industry benchmark in the way of cloud deliverables for the financial services market.”

TAS says the company is aligned with APRA financial services requirements and ITIL-aligned with a focus on security and compliance, and the partnership cloud solutions will be delivered under the company name of TAS Cloud.
