Vodafone Business has introduced ‘Red Cloud’, a cloud-based service meant to improve and safeguard digital operations, to IT Managers at the Vodafone Technology Forum, held in the Ashanti Region.
Vodafone Red Cloud is an advanced and affordable technology that offers businesses a more flexible, scalable, and cost-efficient IT infrastructure to help them achieve their business goals of keeping their data safe and applications performing at their best.
Speaking at the event, the Director of Vodafone Business, Tawa Bolarin, said SMEs can effectively improve their services without worrying about the cost of running data centres or an IT environment.
"At Vodafone Business, we support the growth of businesses by providing solutions that help organizations run efficiently, enabling them to focus on their core purpose without having to worry about their technology needs. We do this by working closely with you, IT Managers, and Chief Information Officers."
She explained that Red Cloud is locally-hosted in a highly secured IT environment, with stringent security policies.
‘’From a latency perspective, you don't have any issues because all your information is stored locally in the country. From a regulatory perspective, it’s an advantage because, for some industries, the regulator doesn't allow you to store data outside of the country. We address that problem for you by having our technology experts sit down with you to understand your needs and to customize our platform to your business needs," she added.
Tawa further said businesses can now focus on their core objectives and purpose while they entrust this aspect of their operations with Vodafone.
"Any business today can focus purely on what it is designed for, its core purpose, and that core purpose is to serve its customers with its products and services to generate value, increase customers, increase revenue, and most importantly, reduce costs. Digitalisation is the only way businesses can achieve these goals by automating with the right tools and resources that allow you to serve your customers better and to grow beyond your local boundaries," she said.
According to Tawa, Vodafone’s Technology Forum is one of the platforms the four-time Enterprise Business Provider of the Year uses to connect with customers to understand how to support their businesses and provide them with the right technology solutions for them to grow and succeed in various industries.
