NTT Com will provide the cloud-native platform and will expand its Enterprise Cloud service, allowing private cloud and multi-tenant cloud services to deploy third party applications and services. The company will also plans to adopt "Pivotal Cloud Foundry", a well-known cloud-native platform.
NTT Data will deliver cloud-native integration services for IoT and digital marketing via its platform, microservices and API. It will also help with agile development.
Pivotal will provide Pivotal Cloud Foundry, a modern cloud platform and 'cutting-edge' agile software development methodology.
Intel will provide the Intel Cloud For All, promising simple deployment of on-premise or hybrid clouds. NTT cloud infrastructure will be powered by Intel Xeon processors, as well as a number of other Intel software tools.
NTT Com says that as enterprises are embracing digital technology to form customer-focused business strategies, they also need to use cloud-native platforms and the applications that go with them.
Digital technology can help organisations gain competitive advantage; while innovations such as agile development are now available to many more medium and large companies, NTT Com concludes.
