MTS, Crompton bag best cloud award

By : |August 22, 2011 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: MTS India and Crompton Greaves were honoured for their cloud implementation, at the C- Change Enterprise Awards 2011, organised by CIOL and Data Quest.

The companies were given the ‘Best Cloud Implementation’ awards in an event organised at The Leela, Mumbai on August 19, 2011, where Rajiv Batra, CIO, MTS India and J Ramesh, GM, Corporate IT, Crompton Greaves received the gold and silver awards respectively on behalf of the two companies.

The award recognizes CIOs who have implemented and enabled a ‘cloud-based’ IT resource in his/her enterprise that has tangible benefits to the organization, either in terms of cost savings or efficiency gains.

MTS deployed a private cloud and took its BSS stack to the cloud, thus helping its partners in achieving cost benefit of a cloud and scale of operations, and pass on the same to their subscribers.

Crompton Greaves implemented an infrastructure-as-a-service private cloud model, wherein it consolidated Oracle and SQL database into a single instance, bringing efficient management of business applications; and delivering uniform response time across its applications.

Into its eighth year, the award, formerly called ‘Enterprise Awards’, brought in two new categories of individual awards to the table this time — namely ‘Best Security Implementation’, and ‘Best Cloud Implementation’ — along with the usual ‘Champions’, ‘Best IT Project Management’ and ‘Innovation CIO’ awards.

Cloud, being an emerging segment and also one where lots of confusion prevails, the number of nominations were relatively less for this category.

Going by the number of nominations, it seems as if the companies adopted a ‘wait and watch’ strategy, so as to evaluate how will it shape up going forward.

Despite the dearth in nominations, the jury was ‘left literally on the cloud’, as Jury chairman Ashok Soota would describe it, while zeroing in on the winners, because the nominations had their own merits in all respects, and the projects that won the laurels underscore that merit only.
