PLDT ALPHA Enterprise, the corporate business arm of PLDT, recently unveiled the new PLDT Cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS).
PLDT Cloud PaaS now gives enterprises the ability to develop and deliver various applications with unprecedented ease. Enterprise developers can begin creating their applications in a standard Web browser using pre-built templates, significantly reducing development lead-time thanks to an 80% drag-and-drop and 20% coding model. Pre-built templates on its starter package can be used instantly to develop applications for numerous organizational needs such as sales & marketing, human resources, IT, and other functional areas. They also have an option to purchase more advanced application templates that specifically benefit industries such as banking & finance, retail & manufacturing, and real estate.
PLDT Cloud PaaS is initially offered for P2,500 per user per month. This includes the platform development tools, starter application templates, a PLDT Cloud IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) resource with up to 150 MB of storage, and free data transfer. As with other existing PLDT Cloud solutions offerings, PLDT Cloud PaaS is housed in the multi-certified PLDT VITRO Data Center, assuring clients of the solution’s security and reliability.
“Traditional application development, from initial set-up to delivery, usually takes three to six months and requires the purchase of millions of pesos worth of equipment and licenses,” says Nico Alcoseba, PLDTAVP and Head of Corporate Business Solutions. “PLDT Cloud PaaS provides enterprises with faster speed-to-market application deployment and more flexible development through its rich development tools and application templates in a more cost-efficient manner.”
“As global business becomes even more fast-paced, it is imperative for enterprises to innovate instantly in order to stay ahead of their competition,” says PLDT FVP and Head of PLDT ALPHA Enterprise Jovy Hernandez. “With PLDT Cloud PaaS, companies can harness the infinite possibilities of the cloud, to quickly create solutions that make them more productive and more efficient.”
