Tokyo, Dec 8, 2011 - ( JCN Newswire ) - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) announced today that Telefonica has launched "APLICATECA" in Argentina, cloud services using NEC's cloud platform.
In February 2011, Telefonica selected NEC as a strategic partner to promote cloud computing in Latin America. As a result, Telefonica is now approaching its customers with a new option based on the SaaS business system (Software as a Service), designed to facilitate access to a variety of digital applications and services where the customer only pays for the number of licenses that are used.
This project allows Telefonica to boost its innovative services in Latin America by using a more efficient model that reduces time-to-market. Initially, Telefonica aims to support small and medium sized businesses in Latin America by breaking down the current entry barriers to new technologies and IT applications, while encouraging an open environment for developers to launch new applications.
Looking forward, NEC's deployment of platforms for cloud services in Argentina can be applied to a wide variety of areas.
