ASG Group has secured a contract with CITIC Pacific Mining to provide the company with full end-to-end SAP solutions using its new Software-as-a Managed-Service offering.
According to ASG, this offering utilises a combination of its infrastructure and service management capabilities integrated with the SAP expertise of the recently acquired Courtland Business Solutions.
Steve Tull, general manager, marketing and effectiveness, ASG, said the deal signals ASG’s entry into the cloud computing market, with services to be provided from the companies soon-to-be completed data centre in Perth.
“It heralds ASG as an early mover in the growing cloud computing space, driving both ASG and its customers forward into the future,” said Tull.
“By securing the contract, ASG has very quickly validated our strategy to enter the SAP market and have also demonstrated our ability to successfully integrate the recently acquired Courtland Business Solutions.”
He said he expected a number of new and existing customers to be attracted to ASG’s newly expanded suite of services, which now also includes Infrastructure as a Managed Service.
“With ASG’s new data centre facilities nearing completion, the offerings will be particularly attractive to Australian clientele who want a locally hosted option rather than the offshore hosting provided by larger multinationals, as well as those who want a tailored, customer centric solution rather than a traditional On-Demand model,” said Tull.
