[South Africa] IDU expands its cloud offering through partnership with Microsoft Azure
South Africa’s Idu-Concept, has expanded its cloud offering through a partnership with Microsoft Azure.
IDU has made its flagship idu-Concept suite of products available on both a private and public cloud platform. This will enable companies large and small to cost effectively access the full idu-Concept suite of budgeting, forecasting, reporting and analytics products.
Businesses can choose to use the IDU private cloud platform through our partner CipherWave, or through a cloud provider of their choice, or through the IDU Software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution harnessing the power and scalability of the Microsoft Azure® Cloud Platform. Microsoft launched its local Azure services in early March 2019, located in its data centres in Johannesburg and Cape Town. This is good news for our South African customers, both in terms of scale, availability, as well as data resilience and compliance with regulations such as the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) in terms of storing personal identification information locally.
IDU Cloud offers world class CPM capabilities without large capital expenditure outlays. Instead of buying costly servers, a cloud platform offers access to state-of-the-art infrastructure, security, reliability, scalability and performance.
Businesses can get up and running quickly with the IDU Cloud (SaaS) offering.
The solution is constantly updated to the newest release, which ensures our cloud customers will always work with the latest functionality, without having to worry about software installation and upgrades.
Decision makers can have instant access through the cloud to critical business insights securely, anywhere and anytime, through a computer or any internet-enabled mobile device.
