Adapt helps businesses achieve more with Amazon cloud services
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.
Adapt is an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner
