With the seismic shift to cloud services taking place across markets and amongst businesses of all sizes today, we are seeing a fundamental change in how customers buy new apps and services. A straightforward, get started motion is now an expectation – services need to be easily switched “On” out of the box. Increasingly, businesses are interested in that same easy button for service delivery across all the services they purchase and use.
Enter the cloud services aggregator, a single trusted partner that provides a single login, standardized provisioning, one bill, and one support contact across a business’s apps and services, from cloud applications to hosted software packages. Playing the dual role of retailer and delivery engine for services, a cloud services aggregator often provides compelling packages enabled by combining a broad catalogue with deep customer knowledge.
Today tibbr announced a platform partnership with KPN, a pioneering cloud service aggregator and leading telecommunications provider, with years of experience providing IT services to business customers. The tibbr offering through KPN, which has been optimized for the KPN Grip platform, delivers a ready-to-go and straightforward user experience with clear customer ROI. With this expansion of its platform ecosystem, tibbr brings the enterprise social network to new geographic markets and lowers the barrier for businesses to take advantage of tibbr’s ability to connect people, files, and business applications in a contextual and personal way.
We also formally announced the availability of tibbr through the Amazon Web Services Marketplace, where visitors can use AWS Marketplace’s to instantly buy and quickly launch pre-configured tibbr software. Plus, pay only for what they use by the month.
With this announcement, tibbr now uniquely provides the convenience of the one-provider, one-bill customer experience for enterprise social, delivered through trusted global cloud providers.
