Novitex Enterprise Solutions Chooses IBM to Build Its Cloud

IBM (NYSE: IBM) and Novitex Enterprise Solutions today announced that they have signed an estimated $10-million agreement for IBM to provide cloud-based Infrastructure and Security services leveraging Softlayer’s open, scalable and secure infrastructure to support Novitex’s industry leading document outsourcing solutions.

Novitex, the industry-leading provider of the Integrated Document Life Cycle™ (IDLC™) end-to-end service solutions, required a flexible, scalable solution to support its rapid growth and expanding offerings, while simultaneously consolidating a distributed set of IT environments in a seamless, singular infrastructure. Novitex also wanted to ensure data security, privacy and compliance for their Fortune 500 clients in a world of increasing security threats.

Novitex needed to deliver the highest level of security for the IDLC services it provides to healthcare companies, financial institutions, government entities, and other clients who have rigorous security, privacy and regulatory compliance concerns. Novitex required a strong partner who would ensure the company’s IT environment was compliant with current and emerging regulatory standards while still being scalable and flexible.

SoftLayer Offers Enterprise Scale Cloud

Novitex is using IBM’s Security and Monitoring solutions to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of the most sensitive client data.
