New cloud platform helps organisations to accelerate their move to digital business .

Canopy, the Atos cloud, powered by EMC² and VMware, announced its strategy and supporting products to empower digital businesses in the cloud, at EMC World. It launches a cloud platform on which to develop, deploy and manage existing and next generation data-centric applications on a choice of cloud infrastructures. Gartner reports that “all industries in all geographies are undergoing radical digital disruption — a “digital dragon” that is potentially very powerful if tamed but a destructive force if not”.

To help organisations get ahead in the digital race, Canopy today announces its cloud platform for digital business that will allow them to:

- Accelerate their move to digital by cloud-enabling existing applications instead of having to re-engineer them

- Accelerate time to market for development of new cloud-native applications with advanced enterprise Platform as a Service

- Drive competitive advantage by accelerating the speed with which big data can be analysed and applications updated with new insights and functionality to deliver new business innovation

- Empower their IT to regain control over cloud sprawl and avoid lock-in with the flexibility to run any application on any cloud

The first instalment of the Canopy cloud platform for digital business is a new version of Canopy Compose which enables IT to minimise the time, risk and cost to become a digital business by creating cloud services from existing applications and publishing them to a self-service portal for automated deployment.

Darren Ratcliffe, SVP PaaS, Canopy said: “Competitive advantage in the digital era will be determined by the speed with which you can analyse big data and deliver business innovation through cloud applications. We’re very excited about the value our cloud platform for digital business will deliver to empower our customers to become digital leaders in their respective markets.”

Michelle De Hertogh, Senior Director Global Strategic Partner Marketing, at EMC Corporation comments: “As part of Canopy’s broader cloud platform for digital business, we see the ability of EMC powered Canopy Compose to enable IT to become a cloud service broker as a critical step toward delivering IT as a Service (ITaaS).”
