How our CMP delivers value

In today’s business climate, digital innovation is the name of the game. It’s what you need to make your business stand out from the crowd, and to deliver more value to your customers.

Choosing the right Cloud - or Clouds - to support this innovation is vital.

Using a single Cloud provider is simple, but restrictive. Using multiple Cloud providers gives you more flexibility but also brings complexity.

How do you get the best of both worlds: the simplicity of a single service provider and the flexibility to choose best-of-breed for your business needs?

01
One service model
02
One provisioning model
03
One central bill for public and private services
04
Role based access controls and permissions across the portfolio, to effectively govern and procure efficiently and within the business’ compliance boundaries.

We call this the Power of One: a concept that our Cloud Management Platform (CMP) makes real for your business.

Exponential-e's Cloud Management Platform

Our CMP provides a single-service interface, enabling you to connect your existing private Cloud services with any public Cloud services (including Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure).

Our CMP also provides:

01
Centralised billing capabilities, enabling ‘One Bill’ for your Cloud business
02
Full role-based access management, to effectively manage and govern business and application lifecycles across your services

Inbuilt cross-platform migration and replication, allowing seamless movement between Cloud services
04

05
Inbuilt integration with ServiceNow, with options for customer e-bonding to your service management tool for easy integration to your ITIL-based service model

With the CMP to support it, your IT team can be truly unstoppable: free to deliver innovation and drive digital transformation; free to go ‘Beyond Boundaries’ - and leave your competitors behind.

What next?

Getting started with our Cloud Management Platform is simple and straight-forward:

Define your Cloud environment

Define which Clouds you want access to, whether it’s:

  • your on-premise services,
  • Exponential-e's Private and Multi-Tenant services, or
  • the Public Cloud (AWS and Azure) - with Google and AliBaba coming later in 2018.

What to do if you already have a public AWS or Azure account

You can choose between:

Binding: Connect your existing accounts while retaining ownership of billing, therefore not taking advantage of one centralised bill.

Novating: place your existing AWS and Azure accounts under a single central Cloud Service Provider model, with no need to re-sign any agreements. This will allow centralisation of service and billing, with opportunity for wider commercial benefits.

Automated enrolment and setup

Let the journey begin with our automated enrolment service.

Full self-service in life: Grow, scale back, and add new clouds all through our fully automated service model.

Wherever you are on your journey to Cloud transformation, Exponential-e can support you.

Conquering multi-cloud complexity

One Cloud doesn’t fit all. Digital transformation is non-optional, but to transform your business multiple Clouds will be necessary. This creates logistical and management complexities that you will need to solve. Let Exponential-e show you how to do this with the Power of One.

To get an understanding of how our CMP will help you to manage operational efficiency and deliver new services at speed, watch this webinar from our Chief Innovation Officer, Jonathan Bridges.

He takes you through how we simplify multi-cloud management to build Clouds, deploy apps, and gain insights faster all under one roof and one contract.
