Executive Quote
According to Motoo Tanaka, NTT Com’s Senior Vice President of Cloud Services, “Through the application of SDN technology, NTT Com will take the lead in offering enterprises immediate, seamless management of network operations on an on-demand basis via their customer portal. This is part of NTT Com’s goal to provide enterprises with the tools they need to grow and expand their enterprises quickly and cost-effectively.”

Analyst Quote
“NTT Com has a well-rounded cloud service portfolio that combines flexibility with advanced features in a way that is compelling to Web services companies and traditional enterprises. As enterprises are undergoing company-wide IT transformations, there is a good deal of runway left for providers like NTT Com, allowing an end-to-end approach to infrastructure and IT systems management,” said Agatha Poon, Research Manager, 451 Research.

Case Examples:

  • If you oversee IT at a software company and your developers need to scale up testing of a new app, you can make immediate changes to an existing VPN to enable heavier network simulation and usage.

  • As rich media becomes ever richer – for instance, as ultra HD (UHD) makes its way online – these assets will hit networks harder. If you’re responsible for ensuring satisfactory customer experiences (whether for consumers or businesses) you can now modify Internet circuits the moment demand exceeds normal bounds or a video goes viral.

  • If you are responsible for IT infrastructure at an e-commerce company, you can now dynamically adjust internal and external network capacity not only for the predictable Black Friday and holiday seasons, but also for opportunistic sales and marketing campaigns.
