Cloud Enablement and Migration

Now, more than ever, applications once implemented and managed in-house are being deployed in the cloud. Moving infrastructure outside your brick and mortar building and putting those servers into a 3rd party makes sense financially and from a reliability and scalability perspective. Companies are outsourcing the procurement of software and hardware, as well as the ongoing and evolving management and upgrades of their infrastructure. Customers and employees require constant and reliable connectivity to the network and their applications.

With high availability up-time being delivered via high performance connectivity options, and advances in security technology, cloud-based solutions are now very viable for businesses of all sizes. But moving some or all of your critical business functions and resources to the cloud can be confusing; what is the right answer for you? Does it make sense to move your applications to a subscription model, or your private connectivity to the cloud?

PeakView provides guidance to our clients to help navigate the many cloud-based options to determine the right solution for you. We have partnered with market leaders in the cloud space to ensure our clients make the right choice for their business and needs. Let PeakView be your trusted partner to help you leverage your cloud investment.

CASE STUDY

Fast-Growing, Global, Direct Marketing Company
THE NEED:

A Leading Sales and Marketing company needed to launch a new global eCommerce solution with expectations of generating 34% revenue increase to achieve their goal of $1B annual sales. The team was given extremely aggressive timelines for launch in order to meet the busy season. Building the solution in-house wasn’t feasible given the aggressive timelines and needed expertise. Also, the team was tasked with completing several other key projects unrelated to this need.

THE SOLUTION:

PeakView gathered all requirements and met with nine market leaders to determine the best fit for the client’s specific requirements. Multiple discovery and scope definition meetings ensured critical components were addressed, while meeting our client’s budget requirements.

RELEVANT STATISTICS:

Client launched on-time and on-budget.

THE RESULT:

The best solution was Rackspace to provide managed AWS, with managed application and security services. We negotiated flexible contract terms allow for future development and evolution of the platform.
