SLATTERY STARTS NEW VENTURE

TECH and telco entrepreneur Bevan Slattery has today launched a world first directory, Cloudscene, which will give a leg-up to his two ASX-listed businesses.

Cloudscene is the world's first comprehensive directory of data centres and cloud service providers.

The business lists more than 4700 data centres and over 4200 cloud/internet service providers across 110 countries.

Slattery says Cloudscene was established to improve industry transparency and consolidate the fragmented marketplace.

He says it's similar to the concept of going to one portal for all real estate listings, opposed to visiting individual websites of real estate agents.

"It's been evident for some time that the traditionally long and difficult buying process for data centre and enterprise cloud services was not going to change," he says.

"It was out of frustration that the concept of Cloudscene was born. Having invested significantly on these services myself, it became obvious that there was an information gap that needed to be filled."

Jason Bingham, Cloudscene's chief operating officer, says to deliver reliable and accurate data to the market, investments were made in an in-house product development team and Australian-based data analysts.

"We have an extensive product roadmap in which Cloudscene will grow enormously. This is just the beginning," he says.

Slattery's companies Superloop (ASX: SLC) and Megaport (ASX: MP1) are already actively using Cloudscene, as well as Telstra (ASX: TLS), Digital Realty, VentraIP, EU Networks, Vocus Communications and Epsilon.

NEXTDC (ASX: NXT), another business Slattery founded and took public in March 2011, is also a Cloudscene customer.

Business News Australia identified Bevan Slattery as one to watch in its extended analysis of Brisbane Top Companies 2016. Read the reasons why here.
