Leading Vietnam Telco Selects IBM To Develop Cloud-Based Mobile Computing Platform

Stock quotes in this article: IBM

The new mobile cloud infrastructure will help VMS improve the scalability of its IT infrastructure and meet growing customer demand, while supporting revenue growth and overseas expansion. Targeted at VMS MobiFone subscribers, the company also intends to introduce new value-added services, including advertising and promotional campaigns. By efficiently and effectively managing the entire innovation process from conceptualization and software engineering to market, VMS will be able to diversify its product offerings and expedite product to market.

In addition to implementing hardware and backup infrastructure, IBM's services team will help VMS migrate its computing platform to the cloud, transforming its business processes. As a result, VMS will be able to better connect with its employees, especially front office employees, regardless of their preferred mobile device. This will not only allow communication among employees within the organization at any time, anywhere but also encourage employee mobility and increase workforce productivity. As part of these workforce productivity initiatives, VMS will deploy new mobile applications to enable its field personnel across Southern Vietnam.

"These aggressive efforts have placed VMS in a much stronger position in the marketplace," said Jee Toon Tan, general manager, IBM Vietnam. "IBM is committed to supporting business leaders such as VMS to leverage the latest technologies, including mobile and cloud, as they strive to increase operational efficiency and improve the company's bottom line."

The new mobile platform is based on IBM WebSphere Application Server and IBM Worklight software, as well as a cloud management system running on IBM SmartCloud Provisioning. It includes IBM PureFlex System, part of the IBM PureSystems family of expert integrated systems, as the core infrastructure. As a key feature, the platform is fully integrated and optimized, thus radically simplifying computing and allowing easier management. The IBM Storwize V7000 storage systems are integrated to efficiently and cost-effectively manage the torrent of data so it can be swiftly delivered for workloads like transaction processing. The IBM TS3200 Tape Library Express is optimal for handling backup and archiving with higher levels of security and dramatically less power requirements.
