KUALA LUMPUR: VADS Bhd, a unit of Telekom Malaysia Bhd, is launching what it claims to be the nation’s first cloud-exchange service, aimed at small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
The VADS marketplace is a one-stop centre where customers will be able to acquire cloud solutions from well-known global players as well as local independent software vendors.
“We have a very strong focus on digital and for us making this leap will have a very big impact on the way we do business,” its chief executive officer Massimo Migliulo said at briefing after the launch of VADS marketplace yesterday.
The cloud solution was also touted as one of the strategic drivers for TM group’s transformation journey to “Go Digital”.
“It is an example of how our digital transformation changes the way we serve our customers. For example, while it used to take up to a few weeks to fulfill customers orders, with marketplace, orders can be delivered almost instantly.
“This way, we are also assisting business owners to embark on their own digital transformation,” TM’s group CEO Tan Sri Zamzamzairani said in a statement.
Customers of VADS marketplace will be able to experience the most integrated digital business solutions, providing them with all the products and services that they need to stay competitive in the business world.
VADS vice-president of partnership and marketing Mahmoud Dasser said companies, especially small and medium enterprises, could see cost savings of as much as 30% with the integrated offering.
VADS, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of TM, is also able to offer its customers a converged solution – from cloud, smart services to managed services.
