- PSC will help Nutanix drive more service sales via partners; adopting the EaaS model
- To offer multilingual support to partners in countries across Apac
PRIVATE cloud, hybrid and multi-cloud computing solutions provider Nutanix announced that it is opening a new Apac Partner Support Centre (PSC) in Kuala Lumpur.
The PSC will help Nutanix drive more services sales via partners and enabling the channel to move more swiftly to an ‘Everything-as-a-Service’ (EaaS) model, including Nutanix’s full portfolio of products, the company said in a statement.
According to Nutanix, EaaS helps organisations achieve specific IT outcomes faster so they can focus more time and money on their business.
“Strategic partnerships have always been one of the cornerstones of our success,” said Jacob Pereira, senior director of channel, APJ, Nutanix.
“As the channel evolves toward an EaaS future, Nutanix is committed to supporting partners and building mutually beneficial relationships that will help their businesses thrive. With our new Partner Support Centre in Apac Nutanix is doubling-down on its commitment to partners in the region.” he added.
The PSC will offer multilingual support to Nutanix’s partners in countries across Apac. It will initially be staffed by team members working remotely, with a view to transitioning to Nutanix’s local office in Kuala Lumpur when it is reopened following the Covid-19 pandemic.
Staff will provide partners support in English, Bahasa Malaysia and Mandarin, with additional Asian languages to be added in the future.
Avinash Gowda, country manager of Nutanix Malaysia (pic), said the new PSC is an exciting development for the company in the Apac region.
“More businesses than ever are looking to the cloud — especially hybrid and multicloud — to gain a competitive advantage,” he said.
“With the launch of our new PSC in Kuala Lumpur, Nutanix can easily help partners across the region build programs and benefit from this growing demand.
“Our partners will be better able to help their customers improve their IT models and devote more resources to growing and innovating their businesses,” he added.
Azmi Zulkifli, chief executive officer of InvestKL, said Nutanix’s investment in greater Kuala Lumpur signifies a high level of trust and confidence toward Malaysia’s economic potential, one we are proud to support.
“The launch of the Nutanix Apac PSC is in line with the government’s aspiration to position Malaysia as a cloud-first nation. This new centre is expected to further boost deep capacity development for local talent and ultimately continue to generate high-value jobs for Malaysians, leading to sustainable economic growth for the country.”
