“CCL is proud to be recognised as a Major Player in the Asia-Pacific region by the IDC MarketScape for Cloud Professional Services,” says Richard Adams, CEO of CCL. “We see firsthand how complex it can be for businesses to transition to the cloud, particularly when they rely on legacy systems, or they have workloads that they want to keep stored in New Zealand, or they want to take advantage of the latest technology innovations.”

“With our locally owned and domiciled cloud platforms and data centre network, along with our strong partnerships with the world’s leading providers, we offer a comprehensive range of professional and managed services to empower New Zealand organisations to make the best possible decisions for their cloud strategy.

“We believe this recognition by the IDC MarketScape is fantastic validation of our mahi to deliver successful cloud services to a wide range of New Zealand organisations.

This includes support with cloud strategies as well as cloud architecture and, cloud security – right through to application migration and modernisation. In an industry that is ever-changing, our customers appreciate having access to the capabilities and experience we offer, particularly when it can be challenging to access those skills themselves.”

“The cloud isn’t just an option, it’s the preferred platform for digital businesses. Cloud professional services providers are critical to helping businesses transition to a modern, cloud-centric model,” says Pushkaraksh Shanbhag, Associate Director, Cloud and IT Services Research, IDC Asia/Pacific. “The wide range of transformative services offered by cloud professional services vendors — including app migration, modernization, cloud-native development, enterprise platform integration, and specialized industry solutions — requires businesses to thoughtfully assess providers against their unique needs.
