IFS announces global availability of IFS Managed Cloud on Microsoft Azure

Customers can now benefit from a fully managed, single-tenant cloud offering where IFS will manage the cloud infrastructure, operating system, database, middleware, and IFS Applications

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces the global availability of IFS Applications™ as a fully managed service on Microsoft Azure. IFS Managed Cloud on Microsoft Azure, which was revealed today at IFS World Conference 2015, offers customers a flexible and cost-effective way to benefit from IFS Applications.

Optimised for IFS Applications versions 8 and 9, IFS Managed Cloud is a security-enhanced single-tenant cloud within the world-class Azure environment. Customers can decide how and when changes are made to IFS Applications, specify maintenance and upgrades to suit their business needs. The offering enables a company’s internal IT staff to focus on supporting business requirements rather than administrative maintenance and upgrades.

“IFS Managed Cloud marks a major milestone in our company’s history as it offers our customers a new set of options for deploying, running, and using our solutions,” IFS CTO Dan Matthews said. “We have designed IFS Managed Cloud to provide flexibility, improved security, and reliability at a level that would be very expensive to achieve in any on-premise installation. Coupled with the layered application architecture of IFS Applications 9 and the ability to utilise Azure’s global network of data centres, we are offering a truly future-proof cloud solution that reduces complexity, risk, and cost.”

“While more and more companies are turning to the cloud to increase speed and reduce costs, it is important to remember that not all solutions are equal,” said Vibhor Kapoor, Director of Product Marketing, Microsoft Azure. “Improved security, global availability, and the ability to integrate with companies’ existing IT assets are also important factors for cloud adoption. IFS Managed Cloud on Microsoft Azure taps into these capabilities in an ideal way to allow organisations to utilise the power of the cloud.”
