Zones Cloud 2.0 is a web-based self-service platform for customers to manage cloud subscriptions through a single console.
In this session, Todd Carter, Director of Zones Cloud Program and Platform Strategy, reviews how Zones Cloud 2.0 enables customers to subscribe, consume, and manage the different applications required to ensure optimal customer experience for support and transparency.
We're thrilled to introduce Zones Cloud v2.0, a new cloud platform that should revolutionize the way we do business with our clients. Zones Cloud v2.0 will make it easy for Zones clients to manage their cloud subscriptions, control their cloud spend, and optimize their IT assets. The goal is to give clients a highly engaging digital experience for procuring, optimizing, and managing their software and cloud subscriptions.
The original Zones Cloud, launched in August 2019, was a success, but this newer incarnation is even better. Zones Cloud v2.0 represents a marked improvement in a number of ways, including an enhanced user experience and the addition of new order workflows that simplify the process of adding and updating cloud and software subscriptions. There's also a new Zones Cloud Marketplace, which gives clients access to a whole world of new offers and subscriptions from our many cloud partners.
