Technology Advisory
& Consulting

Practice
Definition

It takes mastery.  Determining the right technology strategy and making the right technology decision requires a virtual matrix of experience, insights, and requirements…and then there is an entire tech vocabulary that creates an often perplexing barrier to truly communicate.  This is where we shine. 

But, we add three more elements that separate us from the pack…

1.
Business-Centric

Everything we do in our Technology Advisory & Consulting practice is about Your Business. We enable, empower and support your desired business outcomes and objectives via technology.

2.
About You

It’s about Your Journey…whatever your current state, and whatever desired state. Got a 20-year investment in infrastructure hardware and the people to keep it running? Having trouble managing and keeping track of too many cloud instances? Concerned about your bulging data stores and concerned about ensuring they are protected? For these real issues and untold others, our team is ready to guide you through the calamity and provide a path for ongoing business excellence and integrity.

3.
Earn Your Trust

Our desire is to earn your long-term trust. We call it Excellence in Advocacy, which simply means you can rely and depend on us to: tell the truth, act in your best interest, be masters of our craft, and help you get shit done.

Cost Optimization

Issue: Small AWS deployment with little management oversight and a lack of cloud skills internal to the organization moving from traditional infrastructure to SaaS and cloud based solutions.

 

What we did

  1. AWS Audit
  2. Cost Optimization Review
  3. Ongoing Monitoring

 

Result:

  • Eliminated unused storage volumes and the old application server no longer in use, the charges for AWS resulted in a savings of 51% per month.
  • We’ll continue to monitor AWS billing and finance to ensure maintenance of savings and identify other future changes.
