The Telegraph Media Group (TMG) has chosen software provider Cordys to manage its cloud services and applications to allow "rapid mashup" of its business processes.
The publisher of The Daily Telegraph, the TMG, uses multiple software as a service (SaaS) and Google cloud applications, such as Salesforce.com, Amazon Web Services and Google Mail. Cordys' Process Factory software will give TMG the ability to create processes and applications quickly in the cloud across all of its SaaS applications at lower costs, said the company.
Toby Wright, TMG CTO, said, "With our previous structure, a significant percentage of our IT budget and resource was allocated to maintenance and support. By making greater use of cloud platforms for back-office IT and revenue-generating products and services, we are now on target to reach our goal of having the majority of our resource focused on technology and business transformation projects."
Peter Karsten, vice-president sales UK at Cordys, said, "The Software as a Service (SaaS) model we have developed enables business users to build and run their own MashApps by simply combining standard business applications such as Google apps and commercially available services, with web services from anywhere, with the same levels of security as traditional platform implementations."
TMG will use the Cordys Process Factory to integrate and build new cloud applications. Salesforce.com integration will also be used to allow enterprise access to customer data.
