Genesys has revealed what it clais to be the industry’s first native multicloud architecture.
With new levels of flexibility, agility and choice, the company says it will make it simpler for organisations to build a rich multivendor ecosystem and tailor their infrastructure, deployment and management models to fit their business. The promise for companies is resiliency, portability and scalability they need to future proof their contact centres.
The newly containerised architecture of Genesys Engage built using open standards enables Genesys Engage customers to select private or public cloud, on-premises or hybrid deployments with Genesys Cloud or third-party providers.
For example, with Genesys Engage, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles benefits from a single platform to support a diverse set of applications, cloud deployment models and vendors across their global enterprise. In addition, the multicloud architecture makes it possible for organisations to run Genesys Engage in the private cloud of their choice, including leading Infrastructure-as-a-Service providers, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure.
The multicloud approach also allows every users in both cloud and on-premises, to consume innovation with speed and ease regardless of their deployment model.
For instance, it enables organisations using Genesys Engage to access the artificial intelligence powered capabilities of Genesys Cloud, such as Predictive Engagement and Workforce Engagement Management, as a completely integrated solution.
In addition, cloud customers can decide how Genesys Engage is operated – independently, by Genesys or managed by a partner such as Accenture, Aria Solutions, Avtex, BT, Cognizant, ConvergeOne, Infosys, NTT LTD or Orange Business Services.
Further, organisations can move their software applications between different clouds or utilise multiple providers to address varying geographic needs and data sovereignty requirements, according to a company statement.
“For decades, businesses had to choose between a suite of applications from a single vendor or siloed best-of-breed systems, resulting in an administrative nightmare, high costs and inconsistent customer experiences. With our multicloud architecture, we’re partnering with our customers to overcome this challenge,” said Barry O’Sullivan, Executive VP and General Manager for Genesys Multicloud Solutions.
“We’re giving enterprises the ultimate freedom to customise and future-proof their contact centre technology and infrastructure so they can deliver unique experiences for every customer.”
“For most global enterprises, running their business in the cloud with one provider isn’t realistic,” said Robert Allman, Global Senior VP, Customer Experience at NTT.
“Multicloud is the way forward, and Genesys is giving our customers the kind of versatility they need to build the cloud environment that best suits their requirements, while optimising their contact centre investment.”
According to Sheila McGee-Smith, President, McGee-Smith Analytics, “Enterprises, especially large, globally-deployed ones, want a vote in how customer experience cloud transformation is accomplished. By giving businesses their choice of cloud platforms, deployment models and management approaches, Genesys Engage is delivering an architecture that enterprises can mold to meet their specific needs. This allows them to leverage the latest technologies and provide the kind of service that keeps their customers coming back.”
