IBM has inked a deal with NetSuite to partner on enterprise cloud computing services.
The two companies said that the deal will combine IBM's enterprise cloud services and software applications with the NetSuite and NetSuite OneWorld business management offerings.
NetSuite said that the deal will also allow its services to better connect with enterprise software offerings from companies such as SAP and Oracle.
IBM and NetSuite plan to target the campaign at medium-sized businesses and branch offices of larger firms.
Big Blue credited the NetSuite partnership in large part to its recent acquisition of Cast Iron Systems. The deal gave IBM a set of interoperability tools to link cloud computing services with on-premise software products.
"With the growth of software-as-a-service, companies have an increasing need to integrate data and business processes across on-premise and cloud systems, both within and beyond the enterprise," said Dr Angel Luis Diaz, IBM vice president of business process management and connectivity.
"IBM and NetSuite share a vision to provide customers with simplified solutions that optimise the cloud and give line-of-business and IT workers fast access to the information and processes they need to meet business goals."
