Intelenet Chooses Verizon Business to Host Projects in the Cloud

When Intelenet Global Services needed a secure, high-capacity computing environment for a high-priority project, the company chose a cloud-based solution from Verizon Business.  The solution enabled Intelenet to cost-efficiently scale up its technology infrastructure in just hours and to make key applications available to the project team within just five days.

By leveraging Verizon's fully managed Computing-as-a-Service (CaaS) solution, Intelenet was able to create a new computing environment without the need to invest in dedicated hardware and software.  In addition, Verizon CaaS' pay-as-you-go model enabled Intelenet to align project expenditures with revenues while benefiting from daily billing, integrated security, automated provisioning and integrated storage and backup services to support business continuity. Application availability is backed by Verizon Business' stringent service-level agreements, and the solution is provisioned through a Web-based user interface.

Intelenet provides contact-center, finance, accounting, transaction-processing and consulting services to Fortune 500 companies in the banking and financial services, health care, retail, insurance, telecom, manufacturing, travel and hospitality industries. The India-based company employs more than 32,000 employees at 35 locations globally.

Intelenet was already a Verizon Business customer, using Verizon Private IP to provide a secure, scalable and flexible global communications network to connect its offices and customers around the world. Verizon also hosts and manages the company's secure portal for the exchange of information with clients, partners and vendors. Verizon's world-class data center facilities offer a stable, secure and reliable foundation for Intelenet's core application hosting requirements and its ad-hoc business needs.

Rajendra Deshpande, chief technology officer, Intelenet Global Services, said: "For companies such as ours, the ability to deliver projects for our clients, quickly and cost-effectively, is a real business differentiator. By building our project infrastructure in the Verizon cloud, we estimate savings of about 35 percent versus building the infrastructure ourselves, and were able to commence activity within an incredibly short timeframe.

"Of course, the Verizon solution also addresses all our concerns around issues such as security, scalability and flexibility. Alongside our existing IT infrastructure, Verizon CaaS is a real enabler of business agility."
