Microsoft Gulf and Pacific Controls Cloud Services (PCCS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pacific Controls, a UAE-based provider of ICT-enabled managed services solutions, have jointly unveiled cloudservicesme.com, an exclusive SaaS (Software as a Service) portal to provide a range of Microsoft products and software to customers in the Arabian Gulf.
The cloudservicesme.com platform will help customers convert software licensing and infrastructure cost to operational expenses. The service is provided on-demand upon subscription (minimum one month), along with local hosting, and local helpdesk support. The anytime, anywhere access platform is fast time-to-market, so that no software or server purchase or upgrade is required.
The PCCS services are hosted at its Uptime Institute certified Tier III Data Centre, located in Dubai Techno Park. The facility is the largest data centre campus of its kind in the Middle East. The PCCS cloud products, based on popular Microsoft applications like Exchange email, SharePoint, Lync and CRM, will be delivered through the exclusive web portal to customers in the region as cloud applications for monthly subscriptions as against the conventional, perpetual licensing model.
“Pacific Controls’ Cloud Services help enterprises save up to 60% in the total cost of ownership (TCO). By optimizing the IT system of enterprises, we look after their infrastructure and business applications so their IT staff can focus on projects that are core to their business and drive growth,” says Dilip Rahulan, executive chairman of Pacific Controls.
“By using Software as a Service, businesses are able to leverage cloud technology and the advances services it enables, to perform better. According to a recent report by the Boston Consulting Group, SMEs who adopt Microsoft Cloud services grew faster than SMEs who do not use any Microsoft products. The BCG research reveals that Microsoft products and services are the number one choice of these technology leaders. Microsoft is the brand that small businesses trust and use to power their growth,” adds Bruno Delamarre, regional director – mid-market and partner solutions, Microsoft Gulf.
