PCMS is built on the same cloud management platform used by BT to allow its customers to self-serve, purchase, and access cloud services online. BT customers will be able to use the same platform to consume or bring their own digital services to market.
Users will reportedly be able to resell BT’s existing digital ecosystem services such as Cloud Compute, Compute Storage and Apps from BT. This can be for internal consumption or for sale to their own customers, value added resellers, or to cross-sell to other PCMS users.
Neil Lock, vice president Compute, Global Services, BT, says: “PCMS brings to life a vision of how businesses can innovate in the digital economy. It is a ready-made platform that allows new ways for companies to digitalise, manage and build profitable business models from their own vibrant ecosystem of consumers, producers, and innovators.”
PCMS has been developed and will be offered to the market in partnership with management and technology consultancy BearingPoint. The platform will be available globally during the final quarter of 2017.
