Two leading cloud companies – JDA® Software Group and QTS (Quality Technology Services) received special recognition from BMC Software on August 29, 2012, for their industry leadership in implementing innovative clouds to transform their businesses and better serve their customers.
JDA Software, a leading provider of innovative supply chain management, merchandising and pricing excellence solutions worldwide, saw the opportunity to expand and enhance its business by offering its industry-leading software in the cloud. With the help of BMC’s Cloud Lifecycle Management solution, JDA can now rapidly deliver its software, configured, to the customer for immediate use, shortening time to value and increasing customer satisfaction. With these capabilities and ongoing innovation, JDA is leading the supply chain software industry.
“JDA Software has taken a leap forward with its cloud-based offering, delivering supply chain management capabilities, not simply capacity, to our customers,” said John Frazier, vice president of cloud services at JDA Software. “With BMC underpinning our services, our customers can focus their attention on the value of our software – not its administration.”
QTS, one of the nation’s largest and fastest-growing providers of data center and cloud services, has taken its customer dedication and services to another level by empowering its customers in the cloud. With BMC’s Cloud Lifecycle Management tools, QTS customers have the access and control to adjust their cloud environment and provision servers themselves. This added control and visibility enables the company’s customers to manage their own cloud, increasing customer satisfaction and business efficiencies. Furthermore, by integrating best-of-breed technologies throughout its service platforms and infrastructure, QTS provides customers the opportunity to nimbly adapt for future growth and innovation.
“BMC and QTS are working in partnership to meet the complex requirements of cloud computing solutions for our joint customers. The QTS cloud services infrastructure, combined with BMC’s CLM product at the orchestration layer enables our customers to self-manage their compute and storage requirements for their cloud applications,” said David Sung, executive vice president of product development at QTS. Our cloud services are provided from data centers that are second to none and also meet stringent compliance requirements in verticals that include healthcare and financial services, as well as government.”
“JDA and QTS are demonstrating exactly how companies should be integrating cloud solutions to improve customer service,” said Timothy Fessenden, area vice president of research and development at BMC. “As cloud technology continues to solve complex business problems, these companies understand the importance of thinking beyond the ordinary. We are pleased to honor two leaders in the field with the Cloud Innovation Award as they have shown great success in their respective fields.”
