NetSuite launches data centres in Europe

NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N) said it has launched two new data centres, one in Dublin, Ireland and the other in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The company also announced customer momentum and new customer wins in the region, including Pret A Manger, WHSmith, Misys, Deliveroo and Secrid; and a new partnership with Capgemini as the sole distributor of NetSuite in France.

Both data centres will be powered by 100 percent renewable energy. The two data centres will support NetSuite´s growth in Europe and meet the needs of the increasing number of European companies that are adopting NetSuite´s cloud business management platform to more efficiently manage and transform their businesses. Both data centres are expected to be operational this calendar year.

Pret A Manger, an international food and coffee brand, selected NetSuite OneWorld for finance management. WHSmith, the UK-based retail chain offering a wide range of books, newspapers, magazines, stationery and gifts, has launched a new cloud-based, B2B online commerce system on NetSuite SuiteCommerce to support its rapidly growing franchise business.

Misys, a leading provider of banking, treasury, trading and risk software has deployed NetSuite OneWorld to modernise its core business processes and simplify its operations across its 150+ subsidiaries in 70 countries, replacing disparate financial systems the company had amassed through its rapid growth and through acquisitions.

NetSuite also unveiled the partnership with Capgemini, one of the world´s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, naming Capgemini the sole distributor of NetSuite in France. The partnership brings together Capgemini´s rich experience and strong heritage in France with NetSuite´s position as a leading cloud-based business management software company.

Under the terms of this partnership, Capgemini will be NetSuite´s partner of choice, with a sales team focusing on the sale of NetSuite in France through a dedicated entity alongside Capgemini´s pre-existing operations in the region, while NetSuite will provide sales enablement and implementation training.
