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

With SoftLayer, an IBM Company, providing cloud services, Novitex has a highly available, reliable and secure cloud services environment to meet the needs of its growing Fortune 500 client base. Novitex clients also benefit from high availability with built-in disaster recovery. IBM Security Services not only protects data access, but provides deep layers of application security through analytics and event monitoring.

“By leveraging SoftLayer cloud services, we will provide our clients a state-of-the-art IT infrastructure with applications tailored to meet their most challenging business needs,” said John Visentin, Executive Chairman and CEO. “Our private cloud will offer a robust, secure foundation for focused growth and digital transformation with a faster time to market to achieve the most cost-effective results for our clients.”

Novitex is using IBM’s Security and Monitoring solutions to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of the most sensitive client data. SoftLayer is scalable to meet Novitex’s clients’ needs with the ability to rapidly provision workloads throughout its Document Communication Centers around the United States.

As a result, clients’ jobs will be completed and service-level agreements will be met regardless of whether there is a natural disaster, a power outage, a system failure, or simple business disruption.

“SoftLayer cloud services coupled with managed security services, provides Novitex with the flexibility to grow and enable its business to quickly and efficiently manage mission-critical workloads within industries like healthcare and government. IBM’s dynamic management services also give Novitex the ability to fine tune its compute needs quickly,” said IBM General Manager of Cloud Services, Jim Comfort. “Consequently, Novitex will be able to optimize the IT environment and take advantage of the latest technology available on the SoftLayer platform that enables our clients to drive transformation for enterprise IT for the cloud era.”
