In this slidecast, James Mitchell, Founder & CEO of Strategic Blue discusses how his company acts as a Cloud Services Brokerage, providing financial intermediation services to corporate customers using Infrastructure as a Service (“IaaS”).
Strategic Blue takes over the client billing process from cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services and CloudSigma, without interfering with the client’s technical access to the cloud. Strategic Blue is able to offer access to cloud computing infrastructure as a service on payment terms tailored for each client, at prices that will never exceed those available directly from the cloud provider. Discounted pricing can be offered where a client can commit to a minimum amount of usage over a period of time. Strategic Blue is able to provide a single invoice for access to multiple cloud providers, and is able to work with clients’ purchase order procedures.
