Tech giant IBM
According to IBM, Juniper
In a bid to differentiate themselves, Juniper say that they selected IBM as their partner to speed up cloud migration for enterprises, in a USD 325 million deal. They believe that enterprises can leverage IBM Watson’s agility when it comes to cloud transformation and help Juniper drive efficiency and cost saving with a cloud-first mentality.
Martin Jetter, Senior Vice President of IBM Global Technology Services, commented that the alliance will enable them and Juniper to generate more value from the existing infrastructure in a bid to manage business-critical services. He says that they will take a customized cloud approach to simplify enterprise’s transition to hybrid cloud environments.
Experts say that IBM’s ‘Factory Development’ concept, which includes using cognitive tools and automation, will benefit Juniper in the long run. Let’s hope that the deal helps Juniper and IBM reach their business goals, following the latter’s USD 550 million deal with Vodafone to manage cloud services.
