Cloud computing becoming the norm in SA, says Microsoft

Cloud computing becoming the norm in SA, says Microsoft.

Demand for cloud computing in South Africa is not being driven by vendors or partners anymore but rather by customers themselves.

This is according to Nick Keene, a cloud sales manager at Microsoft South Africa, who said his company is transitioning to the cloud because it is what customers want.

Keene was speaking at a joint Microsoft and Global Micro event

“Cloud is not a vendor driven event, it is not a partner driven event but rather a customer driven event,” he said.

“It’s important for business partners and customers to embrace the cloud and have a strategy of what the cloud looks like to them,” he added.

Resellers need to know what their cloud products are, how they are showing them to their customers and how they are even talking to customers about cloud, Keene stated.

During his presentation, Keene also highlighted the benefits of using local hosting service providers to meet cloud requirements.

“We are invested in developing what we call the hosting service provider market in South Africa.

“One of the long standing partners we have had in the cloud space for over 14 years now is Global Micro,” he said.

But last month ITWeb Africa reported that security remains a main challenge to cloud services adoption in South Africa.

According to experts speaking at the third annual Cloud World Forum Africa in Johannesburg last month, South African organisations have not taken to cloud computing like the rest of the world has.

The executive head of product division on cloud computing at Vodacom Business, Nkosi Kumalo, said cloud computing is growing in South Africa but that security concerns are a primary barrier to adoption.

32% of South African businesses have security concerns when it comes to cloud adoption, Kumalo noted.

“This is higher than the MEA (Middle East and Africa) average of 26%. Only Egypt is ranked higher at 33%,” said Kumalo.

It’s berry white: BlackBerry announces white Passport, cloud-hosted BES10 …

BlackBerry has announced it is releasing its BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES10) mobile device platform (MDM) and has also shown off a white version of its forthcoming Passport phablet.

Until now, businesses have had to host BES from their own servers, without the option of a cloud-hosted alternative.

In its official statement, BlackBerry says the release of BES Hosted will mean third-party cloud hosting providers will be available to offer cloud-based BES services.

North American cloud hosting providers ISEC7 and Exchange My Mail are the first two companies offering the service.

In a separate blog post, the smartphone maker announced it is going to offer its forthcoming Passport device in white as well as black, after photos leaked onto BlackBerry fansite CrackBerry.

The new device is set to be wider than a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phablet and include a square shaped screen and a keyboard. It is one of three devices the company is releasing this year.
