Data center transformation has become a key priority for countless businesses in the world today. The idea is that by streamlining the way employees store and access their data, IT leaders can accelerate the way they do business, making everyone happier and more productive in the process.
At Zones, we’re always looking for ways to better cater to our clients in this area. In 2020, that means making it easier to move into the cloud.
To that end, we’re excited to announce that we’re unveiling a new cloud platform this spring. On May 4, we’ll officially be introducing Zones Cloud v2.0. This new cloud e-commerce platform will enable our clients to transact and manage their cloud subscriptions, manage their cloud spend, and optimize all of their related IT assets using SAM tools and engagements. Ultimately, this will give every Zones client a highly engaging digital experience for the procurement, optimization, and management of all cloud hardware and software, throughout its entire lifecycle.
We first launched Zones Cloud v1.0 back in August of last year. Ever since, we’ve been hard at work, listening to our clients and taking feedback on how to add new improvements and capabilities. Zones Cloud v2.0 is the product of our hard work – we’ve taken the original Zones Cloud and improved upon it, making our platform more agile and powerful than ever.
This new release will offer clients a number of new features that weren’t available to them previously. First and foremost, Zones Cloud 2.0 features a new and improved user experience, making it simple and easy to review current subscriptions. On top of that, the platform also offers new order workflows to simplify the process of adding new subscriptions, as well as a new marketplace that includes offers from Metallic, Trend Micro, Jamf, AWS, DocuSign, and more.
The improved Zones Cloud marketplace will give Zones clients a whole world of new options. Shop around, and you’ll have access to cloud and subscription-based software across all of the following categories:
- Azure and AWS
- Office 365 Business
- Office 365 Enterprise
- Office 365 Business Applications and Add-Ons
- Backup and Disaster Recovery

- Dynamics 365
- Enterprise Mobility

For all of these features and more, you don’t have to wait much longer, as our May 4 release date is just two weeks away.
