IBM has announced that Kuwait Direct Investment Promotion Authority (KDIPA) has chosen IBM Cloud to host its IT environment.
KDIPA is one of the implementing arms of Kuwait’s development strategy, tasked to promote direct investment in the country. Since its inception, it relied on its own on-premise, in-house IT infrastructure. Its applications and data were stored in its own data centre.
As the organisation grew, it needed to find a security-rich alternative to host its business-critical applications and data, while having the ability to securely and instantaneously customise its requirements and control its security needs, at any point in time. It also wanted to reduce the time being consumed on upgrading its IT infrastructure and managing its physical data centre.
Following its tendering process, KDIPA decided that the IBM Cloud best fits its current needs, given its security-rich architecture and IBM’s industry and enterprise expertise.
To help enterprises around the world gain valuable insights from their data, IBM Cloud provides clients with an extensive global data centre network spanning 19 countries, next generation cognitive services and enterprise-strength security and industry expertise.
