Novitex Enterprise Solutions has announced that it has entered into an agreement with IBM (News - Alert)-owned SoftLayer for cloud computing services to support Novitex’s document outsourcing operations.
"By leveraging SoftLayer cloud services, we will provide our clients a state-of-the-art IT infrastructure with applications tailored to meet their most challenging business needs," said Novitex executive chairman and CEO John Visentin. "Our private cloud will offer a robust, secure foundation for focused growth and digital transformation with a faster time to market to achieve the most cost-effective results for our clients."
Novitex processes documents for Fortune 500 companies in finance and healthcare as well as government agencies, all of whom need security and reliability.

Novitex went with IBM because it would be a strong partner while providing scalability and flexibility while still maintaining compliance.
