iOCO is pleased to announce availability of Micro Focus DevOps products hosted in local Cloud

iOCO Application Management announced today that Micro Focus’ Application Delivery Management (ADM) solutions ALM Octane, LoadRunner Professional and ALM/Quality Center will now be available as a local cloud offering in Southern Africa.

According to Floyd Moodley, Solutions Executive, iOCO’s solutions offering, which will be locally hosted, goes a long way in terms of keeping data within the borders of South Africa. He notes that local customers are increasingly understanding the importance of being quick to market with new and updated applications but at same time critically ensuring the best quality. Customers understand the need for comprehensive quality solutions but don’t want to necessarily have to incur the cost to purchase the required infrastructure, operating systems and database as well as the associated system management skills. Floyd notes this is where we come in and provide a more cost effective and less risk solution by offering the Micro Focus ADM products as a local hosted cloud product.

Ensuring that your software is built efficiently and with minimal flaws and defects, if any, is a fundamental requirement of software delivery. Cloud hosting aids in this respect by allowing you to concentrate on implementing strong quality practices and letting us take care of the nitty gritty aspects of software maintenance, support and upgrades.

The initial products identified as part of this hosted solutions are Micro ALM Octane, LoadRunner Professional and ALM/Quality Center.

The local cloud hosted offering will also include managed services by certified skilled and experienced engineers to ensure high availability of the products as well as to maintain the products at the required level of maintenance.  iOCO already has extensive experience with this offering in their UK-based cloud and it’s a matter of duplicating what the company already knows and has learnt from their UK-hosted customers.

Highlights of iOCO’s Cloud Offering:

  • Single portal for support managing all interactions relating to software requests and incidents
  • System upgrades and patching ensuring ‘evergreen’ software
  • Fixed solution costs to support easier financial planning
  • BYOL managed cloud service solutions, allowing for leveraging of existing software investments
  • Secure and easy onboarding
  • Easy exit terms after 1 year, providing portability
  • Perpetual license agreements deliver long term financial savings and provide maximum portability and extensibility benefits
  • System access even is maintenance lapses
