Enterprise cloud application services leader Velocity Technology Solutions will expand its cloud offering to Japan, via a partnership with Mitsui Knowledge Industry Co (MKI).
The alliance will see the two companies offer a standardised portfolio of cloud migration and SAP cloud products for enterprises, systems integrators and value-added resellers, enabled by Velocity’s Cloud Application Management Platform (VCAMP).
Under the auspices of the alliance, MKI will be responsible for sales and marketing development, advanced customer service and integration management.
“MKI’s focus is to optimise customers’ SAP systems, alleviate the complexity, and reduce the TCO for Japanese businesses migrating to the cloud,” said Shinji Kawashima, executive officer, MKI.
“Our partnership with Velocity means our customers and partners achieve immediate benefits from cloud migration and management solutions without the large upfront costs and skills enhancements typically required with these transformations.”
VCAMP provides application lifecycle management, service optimisation and analytics through unified multi-cloud application management console. According to Velocity, for complex applications such as SAP ECC and SAP S/4HANA, the platform offers the opportunity to simplify an organisation’s cloud transformation, shortens time to innovation and accelerating cost savings through rapid provisioning, automated migration and intelligent application lifecycle management services for SAP applications, both in public and private cloud landscapes.

VCAMP for SAP enables our customers to expand use cases and attain immediate business benefits without the high cost, complexity, or commitment required with traditional approaches,” said Ravi Padmanabhan, vice president for the SAP line of business at Velocity.
