The company will introduce diversify SaaS apps on the same platform especially for SMBs.

In cloud computing, end users are not required to buy software or devices as they are provided by service providers on a rental basis.

HP will implement and manage Bharti's CLEP. The company said that initially it will offer business solutions like ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), accounting packages and storage and compute.

Going forward, the company will introduce diversify SaaS applications on the same platform especially for small and medium business customers, the statement said.
