The global independent market research and consultancy firm Information Services Group (ISG) took a close look at the Swiss private/hybrid cloud market in its annual Provider Lens study, which ranks both the competitive strength and portfolio attractiveness of various IT providers.
This is now the second year in a row that Avectris has been awarded the top ranking of ‘Leader’ in the ‘Managed Services’ category. Among other things, IGS was impressed by Avectris’s capabilities in the efficient design of hybrid, governance-compliant cloud architecture that is geared towards clients’ financial and business goals, and which Avectris includes in its consultations.
Thanks to its portfolio and expertise, Avectris jumped from ‘Rising Star’ to position itself as a ‘Leader’ in the ‘Managed Hosting’ category, thereby confirming its status as one of the Swiss market’s top providers.
Increasing complexity as a result of rapidly changing new requirements and technologies are the main factors that drive clients to choose managed services for private/hybrid clouds.
The experts behind the IGS study have honoured Avectris’s highly comprehensive security portfolio, technological understanding and many noteworthy partnerships.
They were won over by the migration, operation and delivery models that are tailored to individual client needs, and the consulting and implementation expertise for meeting increased client demand for automation through smart operational procedures.
For companies with legacy applications, a partner like Avectris, which offers a varied data centre and cloud portfolio in addition to expertise in data banks, networks, infrastructure and security, is more important than ever. Avectris’s very own security operation centre (SOC) monitors the entire infrastructure around the clock. Threats and attacks are proactively detected and prevented while taking into account the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Framework.
‘We are thrilled to have positioned ourselves as a leader once again. This distinction reflects our sound experience with successfully supporting medium-sized clients in their transition from traditional infrastructure to the cloud,’ says Thomas Wettstein, CEO of Avectris. ‘The cloud market is defined by the need for secure infrastructure. Our broad range of public and hybrid cloud services covers this requirement and allows our clients to reconcile the flexibility they desire with the necessary governance structure.’
