UBiqube proceeds with a Series B funding round led by NTT COMWARE to further accelerate its global expansion
DUBLIN, Apr. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

UBiqube, the leading infrastructure Automation and Orchestration vendor, 
welcomes NTT COMWARE (NTT's system integration arm) as the lead investor in a 
newly launched Series B funding round.

In light of the growing market demand for the integration and automation of 
processes over multi-vendor and multi-domain network and security technologies, 
fueled by disruptive transformations (such as cloud, 5G, smart cities and IoT, 
security automation, AI, etc.), UBiqube shareholders have decided to launch a 
20 M$ Series B to accelerate the company's expansion plans. 

UBiqube's orchestration software, the MSActivator(TM), empowers the industry 
with an evergreen vendor and domain-neutral DevOps platform for the design of 
Integrated Automation processes, spanning the entire infrastructure continuum, 
from cloud to core, to edge.

Automation workflows have already been designed and deployed using the 
MSActivator(TM) in a wide variety of domains and use cases, from managed 
security services, security automation (auto-remediation), cloud orchestration, 
SDWAN, Smart City applications, network orchestration, and many more.

The MSActivator(TM) enables Integrated Automation through Orchestration 
Continuum and breaks the vendor and domain silos' chasm that has plagued the 
industry for decades.

UBiqube's global expansion will rely entirely on an ecosystem of strategic 
channel partners, whose certified engineers will design the required automation 
solution for the different verticals and customers they are addressing, over 
the MSActivator(TM).

A prominent example of the MSActivator's potential as an integration engine for 
complex infrastructure-based projects is the newly announced Las Vegas Smart 
City project which involves a broad ecosystem of technology vendors integrated 
by NTT Data Services in charge of the final solution delivery for the city of 
Las Vegas. NTT COMWARE acts as the multi Orchestration developer using 
MSActivator(TM) for building the solution in support of one of the most 
ambitious smart city projects to date. 

The compelling impact of the MSActivator(TM) on the delivery and future 
operations of this strategic project, coupled with the solid vendor neutrality 
and independence of UBiqube, have convinced NTT and NTT COMWARE to lead 
UBiqube's Series B round.

Satoshi Kurishima, President of NTT COMWARE:

"NTT COMWARE, as one of the leading integrators in Japan, with global reach via 
the NTT group, strives to provide its customers with the most innovative 
solutions which will assist them in their digital transformation while 
dramatically improving their operations through automation. UBiqube is key to 
our strategy on the matter and as a strong believer in their vision, we are 
eager to support their global expansion via this strategic investment."

Nabil Souli, CEO of UBiqube:

"It is a privilege to have, yet again, an entity of the NTT group invest in our 
venture. This is a testimony to how compelling the MSActivator has become in a 
wide continuum of applications and use cases, making it the perfect technology 
for whoever is intending to navigate the digital transformation seas, without 
ever being vendor-locked and limited in integration scope. We look forward to 
having NTT COMWARE on our board of Directors."

Jun Sawada, President and CEO of NTT:

"The global emergence of SmartCity initiatives is among the many tangible 
indicators illustrating the rapid digitalization of our society. NTT's 
strategic ambition is to act as a global preferred value partner for its 
customers and partners, providing them with the extended expertise and 
technology know-how of the entire NTT group to ensure best in class migration 
towards a new intelligent secure and automated digital era. As part of our 
continued quest for strategic technologies enabling this transition, we have 
chosen UBiqube's industry-leading multi-domain orchestration platform. I am 
hence enthusiastic to see our tighter business relationship materialize through 
this investment round."

NTT COMWARE is the system integrator arm of the NTT group.
