IBM and Portico Consultancy Join To Deliver New Cloud-Based Software

IBM Digital Experience on Cloud coupled with Portico software provides companies with a fully managed cloud service designed to quickly pilot, configure, and introduce new applications to meet evolving customer needs.

IBM has joined with Portico Consultancy to launch new cloud services designed to help businesses of any size quickly build, test, and deploy applications to deliver more engaging customer experiences. The new IBM Digital Experience on Cloud user experience platform coupled with Portico software is a fully managed cloud service running on IBM SoftLayer. The suite of tools provides clients the ability to create, manage, and publish content across multiple channels.

“Our customers are telling us they need more functionality in digital experience software delivered in the cloud today,” says Dennis Rot, founder and director of Portico Consultancy. “Businesses want configurable software that integrates with existing IT infrastructure and new applications to power their consumer, partner, and employee portals without having to worry about installation, configuration, and maintenance. They want to change customer applications on the fly, and have them work on any platform, especially mobile.”

This managed private cloud solution provides a dedicated compute, storage, and network infrastructure with capabilities to integrate with systems of record using IBM Digital Data Connector and script portlets. IBM Digital Experience Plus on Cloud extends the Digital Experience on Cloud with enhanced integration capabilities and increased functionality.

Portico software offers customers a single point of access to all relevant business data from any device and can include social media integration and collaboration, web analytics, application launcher department site templates, and self-service management features.

“Either dedicated or shared, IBM has the digital platform in the cloud on IBM SoftLayer for a client’s omni-channel needs,” says Marie Wieck, general manager, IBM Software. “The collaboration with Portico shows how companies can use an agile software environment in the cloud to better serve users, enter new markets, and test-drive new ideas before taking them to customers.”
