Based on its recent analysis of the cloud industry, Frost & Sullivan recognized CenturyLink with the 2015 North America Frost & Sullivan company of the Year Award, the company said.
Anchored by the highly sophisticated and comprehensive CenturyLink Cloud platform, the company´s hybrid IT strategy enables businesses to optimally support multiple environments and deployment models. The hybrid IT portfolio moves beyond the public cloud and meets the needs of the next generation of technical and line-of-business cloud users for highly automated, efficient, reliable and flexible IT resources.
To ease the path to a hybrid IT environment, CenturyLink complements its sophisticated cloud platform with a range of managed and professional services. These include the innovative QuickStart Cloud Onboarding Services, which offer formal planning and implementation sessions; access to technicians; training on the platform for administrators and end users; and assistance in migration and deployment of software. In addition, cloud customers have access to optional tiered technical support services, priced as a percentage of the monthly usage.
To facilitate technical integration, CenturyLink has reorganized its technical teams around a development and operations framework for application development and deployment. This way, it can swiftly leverage its acquisitions to enable a more integrated and seamless user experience.
Frost & Sullivan, the growth partnership company, works in collaboration with clients to leverage visionary innovation that addresses the global challenges and related growth opportunities that will make or break today´s market participants.
