Velocity Expands Its Cloud Offerings in Japan via Strategic Alliance with Mitsui Knowledge Industry

Velocity Technology Solutions (Velocity), a global provider of enterprise cloud application services and creator of the Velocity Cloud Application Management Platform (VCAMP), is expanding its cloud offerings in Japan through a strategic alliance with Mitsui Knowledge Industry – a provider of a wide range of ICT services founded in 1991 in Tokyo.

Mitsui Knowledge Industry and Velocity will offer a standardized portfolio of cloud migration and VCAMP-enabled SAP cloud products for enterprises, systems integrators (SIs) and value added resellers (VARs). With this alliance, MKI will be responsible for sales and marketing development, advanced customer service and integration management for cloud migration and dynamic cloud platform services leveraging Velocity’s VCAMP technology and platform based delivery.

Purpose-built to optimize the way enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications are run in private, public, or hybrid cloud infrastructures, VCAMP would provide application lifecycle management, service optimization and analytics through a unified multi-cloud application management console.

For complex applications, such as SAP ECC and SAP S/4 HANA, VCAMP would offer a unique opportunity to simplify an organization’s cloud transformation, shorten time to innovation and accelerate cost savings through rapid provisioning, automated migration, and intelligent application lifecycle management services for SAP applications. VCAMP is available for private or public cloud landscapes, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud).

“Our VCAMP for SAP software defined applications management product portfolio delivers rapid-deployment services, advanced applications lifecycle management, and application analytics,’ said Ravi Padmanabhan, Vice President for the SAP Line of Business at Velocity. “VCAMP for SAP enables our customers to expand use cases and attain immediate business benefits without the high cost, complexity, or commitment required with traditional approaches. As one of Japan’s leading providers of enterprise cloud services, MKI’s strength in cloud transformation projects and customer support will deepen the value we jointly deliver with VCAMP for SAP.”
