Milestones focus on our progress, moving us toward operational market revenue.
March 15, 2018: Over this year we are preparing to deploy the Regulatory and Compliance service (RACs) suite and The Compliance Registry solution – the RIO compliance product-service. The various taxonomies and GUI where framed and information is currently being populated. During the development process we discovered that we could increase our expeditiousness and reduce our cost by working directly with the platform developer. This strategy initiated over the 2017-18 holiday weeks and we were seeing not only rapid development, but their input potentially increased our value added product portfolio. Though this transition has allowed for added efficiencies and cost savings in the development process, it also resulted in a minor setback in our product launch time to late April, early May instead. We continue to maintain very positive and ongoing relationships with our partners. They continue to show significant interest in engaging CloudCover and our CyberSafety solution and provide a path for “white-label” market entry with RACs and subsequent software-defined Risk IT Orchestration service-products next year.
April 28, 2017: CloudCover has begun contract discussions to create a co-development partnership with Ciena Networks, as a result of a successful CloudCover introduction of our solution to AT&T executives earlier this week. Again, we are excited about working with the Ciena / Blue Planet and their Blue Orbit Team together — assisting to provide our offer a platform to market.
April 20, 2017: CloudCover today has agreed to partner with Ciena / Blue Planet’s Community DevOps Exchange. With the acquisition of Blue Planet, Ciena is working with their Blue Planet division and starting to push their software services within AT&T at various levels of the organization as they look to move beyond equipment. The easiest path to revenue for the CloudCover offer would be through AT&T’s Network Integration group which packages together 3rd party solutions, with their own services, and sells them to their enterprise customers. Ciena already has a communication channel set up to introduce new offerings via this route as well as AT&T’s Proof of Concept labs which are customer facing labs to demonstrate what could be possible in their networks.
March 17, 2017: A lot has happened with CloudCover in the past three months as our offer has evolved and is getting ready for product insertion. We are extremely excited about our new partnership with Ciena Networks and Blue Planet and their orchestration software to help accelerate the deployment of our services. We feel that the integrated offer can provide a very compelling and differentiating offer in the marketplace. Ciena Networks supports their largest telco, AT&T, where they today provide all of their Layer Two equipment services, and most of their Layer One optical services.
February 15, 2017: NEWS RELEASE— Cyber Advisors, Minneapolis, and Dell Solutions Center and CloudCover Ltd. have joined in partnership to align their independent goals as it relates to the Dell SC Lab to begin integrating Ciena’s Blue Planet Orchestrate software alongside CloudCover CDP for solution scale, BP testing and risk analytic studies. As Ciena’s partnership continues, we will continue working with them to build out our integrated offer. Their long-term goal is to not only bring CloudCover to market within AT&T, but build a “success template” for their product management team within Blue Planet that can be introduced and replicated to the other telcos, content providers and media companies that Ciena supports within the US and globally.
