BT’s enterprise arm is set to launch new mobility services that leverage EE’s assets in the coming weeks as part of a drive to target CIOs.
The UK-based operator, which got the final go ahead for its acquisition of the mobile operator in January, is set to unveil a series of new services as part of its Cloud of Clouds portfolio.
Details about the mobile launch were sparse – BT would only say they would be both UK and global in scope.
Other new services include the addition of realtime big data analysis capabilities to customer relationship management tools and new ways of customising cloud services to meet the needs of individual organisations and industry sectors.
Cloud connectivity will be expanded, while new security and professional services capabilities will be unveiled.
The teasers came as BT unveiled findings from a survey of 1030 senior IT decision makers in 11 countries.
Cloud, mobility/collaboration and data are the most disruptive technology trends currently, according to respondents.
However, 61 percent said that CIOs are spending more time maintaining current IT systems than searching for new solutions.
A fifth of global organisations are already completely cloud-centric, according to the report, while 46 percent have more than half their applications and infrastructure in the cloud.
BT Global Services saw revenues decline one percent in the three months to December.
Luis Alvarez, CEO of BT Global Services said: “The pace of digital change is creating new opportunities for our customers and those opportunities require quick responses.
“The role of the digital CIO is one of the most demanding in business.
“They need to be strategic, creative, growth-minded and cost conscious.
“They have to understand technology and people, and balance control and safety with enablement and speed.
“They are becoming the pioneers of change.
“To be successful, they now require strategic partnerships within and beyond their organisation.”
