To address the growing interest for cloud-based technology solutions in Asia Pacific, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise (ALE) is delivering a range of innovative and industry-specific consumption-based delivery models for businesses of all sizes. The offers, according to ALE, are the first to combine the power of the cloud with an outcome-based approach for customer success.

The company said tailored cloud services for specific industries, such as hospitality, education, health and government provide businesses the opportunity to advance and maximise their technology investment while leveraging it to achieve tangible business outcomes.

ALE said it has made strong progress with cloud communication services for large enterprises and Small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in Australia and New Zealand. It recently delivered tailor-made cloud services for the Accor hotel group and at the G20 with their partner, UXC Connect.
