As the use of cloud computing continues to grow, organizations are putting more of their workloads in public clouds and pursuing multi-cloud strategies that will hopefully generate lower costs, increase agility and provide greater flexibility. However, that is not always the case as the cloud journey can become quite bumpy and the need for a cloud provider can become urgent.
In the December edition of CIO Review Magazine, the publishers compiled a list of the 20 Most Promising AWS Solution Providers, of which Auxis was proudly featured.
The purpose of the list was to guide organizations in harnessing the power of new-age AWS solutions and ensure the advancement of core IT operations within their firms and augment the AWS functionalities they offer to clients.
In the article, Co-founder and Senior Managing Director at Auxis, Alvaro Prieto, was interviewed about Auxis’ overall cloud capabilities and specifically what defines an effective cloud strategy. Mr. Prieto mentioned that “an effective cloud strategy should not only deliver increased speed to market, unparalleled agility and attainable cost efficiencies, but it should ultimately allow an organization the ability to better focus on the things that matter like innovation and ideation.” In other words, an organizations’ cloud journey should be smooth sailing.
Unfortunately, not all cloud deployments deliver those benefits -- or any benefits at all. In fact, a lot of cloud migrations fail for a multitude of reasons. Whether it is a mismatch between a company’s need and the cloud services provider they have partnered with, or a lack of preparation, or just a case of moving too fast, understanding how quickly things can go sideways and maximizing the value of the cloud is something that Auxis understands and takes very seriously.
While most cloud service firms focus primarily on technology, Auxis takes a different approach and prioritizes transforming the entire organization in order to succeed in a cloud-enabled model. Unlike other companies, Auxis takes a streamlined approach towards understanding the specific pain points of an organization and then rendering the appropriate approach to cloud adoption and management rather than the fastest or least expensive.
Besides providing competent assistance in an organization's day to day operations in the cloud, Auxis also helps in training internal resources as well. It uses the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) framework to standardize the selection, planning, delivery, and maintenance of IT services. In addition, once organizations mature in their AWS cloud usage, Auxis also offers a service called Cloud Financial Desk where it proactively manages and controls the expenditure of their AWS cloud. Auxis can monitor an organization’s spending and offers reports on areas in which they can help the company save additional dollars.
For a majority of organizations, migrating to the cloud is inevitable, whether they know it yet or not. Most will eventually have either shifted their operations to Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud (All of which Auxis is a partner with) or are in the process of doing it. While the benefits of cloud computing are second to none, most organizations will fail to capitalize on the opportunity because they: lack particular skill sets, don’t have around the clock support services, there is zero security nor any data protection strategies. As Mr. Prieto points out, Auxis understands these challenges and offers end-to-end consulting and outsourcing services to maximize the value of an organization’s cloud computing investment all while optimizing their total cost of ownership at a pace that keeps them ahead of the pack.
While successful cloud migrations are often defined by the quality, reliability, and performance of cloud applications. Auxis, with the help of its experts, can provide technical and project management skills, recommend implementation approaches, assist in designing platform architecture and security standards all while ensuring a hassle-free transformation to the cloud.
Given the distinction that Auxis has been named as one of the 20 most promising AWS solution providers, the Auxis Cloud team realizes that most cloud initiatives are not without their challenges, Auxis' certified cloud experts have the ability to support any size organization through the entire cloud journey, from helping to develop their cloud migration strategy, to assisting with the cloud migration itself, all the way through to operations.
