NRF 2016 NEWS: New Services Accelerate Migration to Cloud for Operators

EarthLink announced new services and tools to accelerate retailers’ migration to customer-centric cloud services. The company will mark the opening of the NRF Annual Convention & EXPO by launching a new Cloud Vendor Selection Advisory Service to help retailers select a cloud-based platform ideally suited to their business and technical needs, along with a Cloud and Network Maturity Assessment tool to help retailers gauge their progress moving to the cloud.
EarthLink’s decision to bring these services and tools to market is drawn from years of experience working with specialty retailers and other multi-location businesses to leverage the power of the network to get closer to customers, improve employee productivity and drive bottom line growth. Together, this offering demonstrates EarthLink’s commitment to helping retailers become more competitive in a complex and rapidly evolving market.
EarthLink’s new professional advisory is a natural extension of the company’s existing cloud service offering, including Cloud Express™, which enables superior application performance and reliability for retailers connecting to major cloud platform providers such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM SoftLayer, Rackspace and CloudSigma. The new service leverages EarthLink’s expertise working with these vendors, major SaaS providers like Salesforce, and rapidly growing retail applications such as hosted Point-of-Sale. The result is an expert evaluation of the client’s business and technical requirements leading to the best possible platform selection for their current and future needs.
EarthLink’s Cloud and Network Maturity Assessment tool is a simple online assessment tool that enables IT leaders to objectively identify gaps and opportunities as they move their focus from managing day-to-day IT operations to supporting innovation and customer experience, all while protecting the company’s data and reputation. The results can arm leaders with the information they need to engage management in the process of balancing these priorities.
