The extended deal gives Plateau a managed hosting service to meet demands for its Software-as-a-Service talent management offerings and to provide end-user broadband for Plateau's global clients and their employees.

"The talent management industry is moving from on-premises to Software-as-a-Service delivery models such as Plateau's Talent Management and iContent offerings. This trend is also increasing bandwidth requirements. With Verizon Business, we can stay ahead of the technology curve and remain focused on our core business - helping to improve organizational performance - and deliver content and applications that are secure, reliable and highly available to enterprise managers and employees."
"Verizon Business is dedicated to meeting enterprise customer needs to deliver new IP services," said Nancy Gofus, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Verizon Business.
