Cloud Computing

Achieving agility, efficiency, cost control and better analytics by deploying a cloud big data infrastructure while taking the security and legacy imperatives into account is not a trivial task. Managing an elastic pool of resources in a multi-tenant environment while respecting the SLAs and data integrity and keeping the bills under control is not either.

We architect, deploy and operate hybrid public and private cloud solutions based on multiple offerings on a daily basis. We’ve been involved in different approaches to cloud migration, from “Lift & Shift” to complete re-platform. These experiences provide our consultants with the depth and breadth of skills needed to help you navigate, customize and operate the new normal.
