Parallels and IBM: Optimized Cloud Delivery

The solution from IBM and Parallels delivers everything CSPs need to amplify their presence in the cloud marketplace, reduce the cost of retaining customers, quickly deploy and promote proven revenue generating services, and effectively differentiate from competitors. It combines the innovative Parallels Automation software platform with a market-leading cloud integration technology from IBM, complemented by IBM’s unmatched expertise in complex systems integration, cloud solutions and program management to mitigate risk and improve outcomes.

IBM’s SmartCloud Aggregator enables the service provider to become a broker of cloud-based services that are provided from both inside and outside the service provider's network. The advantages of this approach include the ability to accelerate operations integration with third-parties' services, predict integration costs and intervals, and respond quickly to market demand for leading applications. The combination of IBM's SmartCloud Aggregator with the Parallels Automation storefront provides the service provider with an end-to-end solution that simplifies selling cloud-based services and expands their portfolio with selected services from the Parallels and IBM ecosystems.
