News : Telstra Acquires Readify for Cloud, Big Data, IoT Software
Melbourne, Australia, July 4, 2016 -- Telstra has announced the acquisition of Readify, a developer of Microsoft software applications, saying it will bolster the telecommunications provider's cloud offerings.
The Readify acquisition augments Telstra's purchase of Kloud in January, according to Telstra's executive director of Global Enterprise and Services Michelle Bendschneider, as well as its earlier acquisitions of O2 Networks, Bridgepoint Communications, and NSC.
"As we know, apps and software in general are playing an increasingly important role in businesses. Readify is recognised globally for its innovative software solutions and will further help us create software-led digital transformations with our customers," Bendschneider said.

"Readify will provide application development and data analytics services, nicely complementing Kloud's existing services. It will enable Telstra to add incremental value to customers in enterprise cloud applications, API-based customisation, and extensions, as well as business technology advisory services."
In May, Telstra flagged the importance in securing multi-cloud services, calling this "critical" to its overarching strategy, by entering a partnership with hybrid cloud security startup vArmour.
The partnership will see Australia's incumbent telco add another layer of security solutions to its enterprise managed services portfolio.
In April, Telstra also unveiled a business multi-cloud connecting solution to support the use of hybrid cloud services Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Office365, VMware vCloud, and IBM SoftLayer. The solution, called Cloud Gateway, allows customers to connect directly to multiple public cloud environments via Telstra's IP network.
