Fragmented world. Simple solution.

By the year 2020, many analysts predict that 30% or even more of your IT providers will be highly specialised in a particular area and will deliver that from clouds with high quality. We are seeing that change already, especially in DevOps tools and CRM applications. In many cases, most – if not all – parts of your deployment chain are coming from different vendors. This is a very productive way to work, although sometimes it might, unfortunately, be difficult to find support for the whole chain if problems emerge.

Efficiency may lead to complexity

Buying practices for enterprises have changed. Traditionally, CIOs outsourced a big part, if not all, of the IT to their chosen partner. For companies whose core business was something else than IT, this was a simple and easy solution, allowing them to allocate more resources to their core operations.

Today, we live in a different world. Business departments buy cloud services for analytics, customer management, engagement and many other purposes. IT have in some cases lost control over software development teams that are using whatever DevOps tools they want to use or like to try out. This kind of freedom offers agility for dev teams and business units but at a same time, it might play havoc with cost efficiency. In many cases, nobody is taking care of important things, such as:

  • Will the contract be terminated if the service is not used and when?
  • How many people within the company are using a certain service?
  • Would the subscriber be justified to get some discounts if all the users were collected under one contract?
  • Who will offer support in multi-cloud environments for the whole service chain and fix problems?

These are real threats if teams are working without centralised management.

Consolidation makes cloud service management simple

We believe simplicity can be brought back to IT software purchases from Iaas to the layers above it without losing the freedom of your teams. That is why we offer one consolidated marketplace where you and your teams and peers can buy anything they want at the best possible price under one contract and with one invoice.

Real-time transparency also means continuous monitoring of the health status of your services, a consolidated service desk and a team ready to help at all times.

This is Tieto OneCloud – one solution to manage your entire multi-cloud ecosystem.

Hybrid functionality allows mixing and matching public clouds (AWS and Azure), private clouds (run by Tieto in its own data centres) and onsite clouds (operated and located on your premises).

Because you only have one solution that is flexible enough to fit your business needs, you always have a full overview of your cloud services and their cost. One dashboard interface makes it easy to access, run, scale and migrate the services as your needs evolve. You can coordinate all your suppliers in one place – without needing to have separate contracts with all those providers.

Tieto OneCloud initially includes Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), with Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) and DevOps tools due soon.
