KOMSA will work with ALE to deliver OpenTouch Enterprise Cloud services to businesses in Germany. The service will provide cost effective advanced communications technology.

ALE, operating under the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise brand, and its long-term business partner KOMSA are working together to deliver cloud-based Unified Communications-as-a-Service for businesses in Germany. Effective immediately, Komsa will market the Alcatel-Lucent OpenTouch® Enterprise Cloud (OTEC) solution as part of its “KOMSA Cloud Services”, a partner program targeting its B2B resellers.

KOMSA will provide the required hardware and software components to resellers and system integrators seeking to implement cloud-based communications solutions for their business customers. To comply with the highest security requirements regarding data protection, security, and availability, KOMSA will host the cloud applications domestically in Germany through a leading local provider of managed services.

KOMSA, a leading German distributor of information and communications technology, will help its reseller partners select the right cloud-based service components, integrate the solution on the end-customer's site, and manage the billing processes. KOMSA will also provide comprehensive training and support services. Under the motto “Everything as-a-Service”, system integrators and resellers can offer their customers a complete package from a single source.

OpenTouch Enterprise Cloud enables Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Business Partners to build a secure and always-on “Unified Communications as a Service” offer for their enterprise customers. The cloud-based solution lets employees connect to information, applications, services, and virtual meetings from any place, on any device. Consumption-based invoicing replaces the upfront CAPEX burden with monthly subscription –based (OPEX) model. It allows for flexibility, scalability and adaptation to changing customer requirements, leading to significant cost benefits.

Founded in Hartmannsdorf in 1992, KOMSA is a leading German distributor of information and communications technology offering trading partners the latest technology products and solutions. The distributor has successfully commercialized Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise communications solutions for many years and is now the first ALE partner in the DACH region to define a complete package for its resellers that combines components of the OpenTouch Enterprise Cloud with hosting, consulting, and support services.
