Leading Advisory Firm NelsonHall Names Unisys As A Leader In Latest Cloud Infrastructure Evaluation
WELLINGTON, December 15, 2020 – Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) was named a Leader in the NelsonHall vendor evaluation for Cloud Infrastructure Brokerage, Orchestration & Management in the Overall market segment. Unisys was placed in the Leader quadrant in all three areas evaluated: Overall Cloud Services, Cloud Brokerage Services and Cloud Orchestration Services.
This NelsonHall Vendor Evaluation & Assessment Tool (NEAT) evaluates vendors on both their ‘ability to deliver immediate benefit’ and their ‘ability to meet client future requirements’ and places vendors in one of four categories: Leaders, High Achievers, Innovators, and Major Players. NEAT strategic sourcing managers assess the capability of vendors across a range of criteria and business situations and identify the best performing vendors overall.
Published in December, the report notes that Leaders are vendors that exhibit both a high capability relative to their peers to deliver immediate benefit and a high capability relative to their peers to meet future client requirements. Unisys’s overall ability to meet future client
requirements as well as delivering immediate benefits to its cloud services, infrastructure brokerage, orchestration and management clients, were cited for its placement in the Leaders quadrant.
“Unisys takes a cloud-agnostic approach through its cloud products and services to enable a client's cloud journey and deliver the business outcomes they require,” said report author John Laherty, senior research analyst at NelsonHall. “Unisys provides cloud advisory services to assess where a client is on its cloud journey and further utilises its cloud experience centers to co-innovate with partners.”
Among the strengths noted in the report were Unisys’ comprehensive automated continuous hybrid cloud security and compliance management solution, as well as the company’s use of AI-Ops, to provide ML-enabled operations and management capability to drive cost optimisation, SLA management through incident management, event correlation, and a zero-incidents system. Unisys has also developed Cloud Experience Centers to showcase cloud capabilities depending on the client context, including rapid prototyping cloud-based solutions
through dedicated client workshops.
“Our reputation and experience in cloud have grown dramatically over the past three years and this recognition as a Leader from NelsonHall is another validation that we are providing our clients the end-to-end hybrid cloud solutions to help them bring success to their customers,” said Eric Hutto, president and chief operating officer, Unisys.
