IBM announced that it will deliver cloud-based services to manage all of the mission-critical applications for Kyocera Document Solutions America. IBM will provide a more cost effective and flexible environment supporting the company's growing infrastructure needs across multiple business areas, while minimizing disruptions.

"We chose IBM over bids by many of their competitors because of their proven track record with delivering a secure and open cloud," said Mano Misra, vice president of Managed Information Systems, Kyocera. "Not only are we entrusting IBM Cloud with our key operations applications like Oracle, we are also committed to migrating many of our other important business applications running under VMWare to the IBM Cloud."

As part of the five-year agreement, IBM created a new flexible, IBM Services Management Application offering with Kyocera's existing Oracle environment. Now, IBM Services will facilitate daily IT management for Kyocera's cloud-based services and technical support to help automate and enhance their business operations and unburden their infrastructure staff, thereby allowing them to focus on more value-added application modernization and innovation.

"In today's demanding business environment, organizations like Kyocera need a robust, high availability enterprise resource planning backbone and commerce platform with zero disruptions," said Mark Slaga, general manager of IBM Services for Application Management. "We are pleased to be able to deliver a highly-differentiated value proposition by bringing together our best technologies and subject matter specialists to provide solutions for them in this new phase of their digital transformation."
