Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, a leading provider of communications, cloud and networking solutions tailored to customers’ industries, today announces the launch ofPurple on Demand, a new subscription-based commercial offer aimed at delivering secure business communications to end customers in a private environment.
When embarking on a digital transformation, businesses desire simplicity, flexibility, security, and digital sovereignty. To meet these needs, Purple on Demand offers communication services for enterprises, with software available through a subscription model, in addition to hardware, such as phone sets, conferencing devices and accessories.
Purple on Demand’s flexibility enables businesses to respond with speed and agility to market demands by removing the barrier of upfront transformation costs. Customers can add and remove technology whenever suits the business, enabling them to stay competitive in a rapidly evolving market.
The solution leverages ALE’s proven and reliable products and applications, such as the flagship Alcatel-Lucent OmniPCX® Enterprise Purple communication server, with a mission to accelerate digital transformations through flexible, rich communications solutions. Moreover, Purple on Demand can be deployed on-premises, hosted, or in a private cloud, giving customers the ultimate flexibility when choosing their operational model.
Nicolas Brunel, EVP, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Communication Business Division, comments:
“No matter size or industry, ALE can help your enterprise to transform and succeed in the digital era. Rather than focusing on technology, our aim is to guide businesses through a transformation based on goals alone.
Once a business tells us what they need, we will take care of the technology. With Purple on Demand, we are making communications easier than ever, allowing companies to align on budget, services, and operations, all with an unprecedented simplicity and flexibility.”
The launch enhances Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s communications solutions portfolio and is part of its Digital Age Communications strategy which is centred on three pillars:
- The digital workplace: Enabling employees to work from anywhere (at the office, at home or remotely), with efficient communications, collaboration, and customer service, cloud-based solutions available at any time, from any device.
- Communications as the catalyst for enterprise agility: Connecting everything (people, applications and objects) to enrich traditional business interactions, accelerate decision-making, automate business processes, and proactively detect incidents before they occur.
- Flexible cloud-model solutions and architecture: From the enterprise premises to a full-cloud solution (private, public or hybrid), organisations can decide on the best approach to support their transformation in terms of budget, timeframe, and objectives.
The first iteration of Purple on Demand is available in selected European countries (1) and ALE plans to expand availability to new countries in 2023.
