Managed AWS is only as powerful as your ability to configure and customise

Hyperscale platforms like AWS (Amazon Web Services) offer commodity elastic compute options and powerful middleware and software features that revolutionise business models. But without in-house experience, they can be complex to secure, scale and optimise, both commercially and technically.

AWS doesn’t understand your business processes and priorities. There’s no transformation plugin that suddenly turns commodity technology resources into a meaningful, intelligent managed cloud environment aligned to your business and applications - or culturally helps reshape your teams to focus on the Next Big Thing.

Do more
  • Transform the agility and efficiency of your business with elastic scale
  • Stay compliant and secure in the Amazon cloud with strong commercial governance
  • Free your tech talent to 'build not run': take advantage of automation, standardisation and analytics
