Leading ICT provider, Optimation has joined forces with Australasian cloud start-up Barbador to leverage the benefits of Google’s cloud platform and products to provide increased efficiency and productivity for enterprises. Optimation will bring its considerable technical integration and professional services expertise to the venture, providing skills and resources in areas such as business analysis, project management, and testing. Optimation Chairman and founder Neil Butler says, “We are excited about this new venture with Barbador, their vision and 100% focus on Cloud and Google enterprise platform and products provides an excellent opportunity for enterprises to rethink how they utilise IT as an enabler to compete in the market. As enterprises build their businesses on new cloud platforms such as Google’s, they will need guidance and thought leadership from companies like Optimation and Barbador to assist them on their journey from today’s on-premise technologies, and to help them maximise the benefits of moving to the cloud.”
