CSC (NYSE: CSC), a global leader in next-generation IT services and solutions, today announced that it has been recognized as a "Leader" by Everest Group in the report "Hosted Private Cloud Service - Market Update and PEAK Matrix™ Assessment: Protectionist Sentiments Spur Growth."

Developed by Everest Group, a global consulting and research firm, the PEAK (Performance, Experience, Ability, Knowledge) Matrix is a framework that assesses the relative market success and overall capability of service providers in various industries. This particular PEAK Matrix evaluated 16 IT service providers offering hosted private cloud platforms, and assessed their capabilities based on scale of operation, relative focus and domain investments.

The Everest Group report highlights CSC's strengths as having a mature and standardized platform, as well as security services, partnerships and alliances. Based on Everest Group's analysis, CSC moved from the "Major Contender" position in 2015 to the highest designation of "Leader" in 2016.

"Private cloud deployment continues to witness increasing acceptance and traction as enterprises are looking to make their IT setups more streamlined and flexible, while at the same time adhering to various industry and geography-specific security and compliance requirements," said Yugal Joshi, practice director, Everest Group. "CSC's move to the 'Leader' position was a result of its ability to establish a highly-scaled, global business by leveraging its legacy managed hosting strengths and global data center footprint; continuing to invest in the expansion of functionalities of its core hosted private cloud platforms and partnership networks; and strengthening its global managed service capabilities."

"This recognition is a testimony to CSC's vision to provide cloud services that are application-centric, secure and flexible for clients to leverage digital transformation," said Stephen Hilton, CSC executive vice president and general manager, Global Infrastructure Services. "Cloud diversity is on the rise and our deep data center footprint, established partner ecosystem and mature managed services capabilities, enables us to position clients to achieve the potential that PaaS, IoT and applications platforms promise."

CSC is one of the few service providers in the world that can manage multi-cloud transition and deliver infrastructure as a service (IaaS) that integrates mainframe, midrange and private and public cloud, along with centralized management. As a leader in hosted private cloud offerings, CSC enables large enterprises to more quickly move two separate, coherent modes of IT delivery to the right cloud. This hybrid approach to cloud migration segregates legacy technology, processes and skill sets (mode 1/stability) from new products that emphasize speed and change (mode 2/agility).

By combining CSC's private cloud offerings and strong partnerships with the leading public cloud providers, clients can choose a future-proof path that is right for their enterprise.

CSC BizCloud - Implemented as a service, this private on-premise cloud requires no capital investment and is ready for workload and application deployment in just 10 weeks.

CSC BizCloud HC - Hosted private cloud based on VMware SDDC or OpenStack running atop a hyper-converged infrastructure. It is a low-cost private cloud ready for application deployment in as little as 10 weeks.

CSC Agility Platform™ - A consolidated platform for hybrid cloud management, governance, and security across multiple heterogeneous public and private clouds.
