IBM to invest $10m in building NZ Cloud capability

The commitment will bring two new cloud managed service solutions to New Zealand, which will both be offered from two North Island locations, including IBM’s $80 million Auckland data centre at Highbrook.

IBM has announced an investment of more than $10 million in its New Zealand Cloud capability to meet the needs of public sector agencies and private organisations.

The commitment will bring two new cloud managed service solutions to New Zealand, which will both be offered from two North Island locations, including IBM’s $80 million Auckland data centre at Highbrook.

This announcement follows IBM’s plan to invest $1.2 billion globally into expanding its Cloud footprint. It also builds on the firm’s existing investments in the country, including the delivery centre at Unitec.

IBM NZ’s strategic outsourcing executive, Kate Tulp, said this significant investment means IBM is able to offer onshore private cloud solutions to New Zealand clients across both public and private sectors.

“IBM’s new Cloud complements the company’s existing public and hybrid offerings, giving clients the ability to choose a cloud environment that best suits their business needs and provides visibility, transparency and control of data security and placement.

“This investment into a local Cloud offering brings onshore state-of-the-art Cloud computing to our local clients. It makes it easier for New Zealand organisations to adopt Cloud and drive business transformation and innovation, bringing greater flexibility to the way enterprise and government agencies manage their data, run their business and deploy their IT operations locally,” said Tulp.

“Organisations that will benefit from this new onshore capability include businesses and government agencies that are deploying Cloud services to market, selling and developing products, managing their supply chain and transforming their business practices,” she added.
