Cloudreach, an independent multi-cloud services provider, has unveiled SMART Management – a managed service designed for the age of genuine cloud-based business transformation. Cloudreach’s expertise in cloud professional and managed services is brought together in SMART Management. According to the company, it’s a simple and adaptable offering designed to assist enterprises speed their cloud transformation efforts.
This announcement comes at a time when cloud computing is becoming a more strategic focus for enterprises. According to research conducted by Cloudreach and IDC in 2021, large-scale cloud migration was ‘essential for survival’ for 27.5 percent of businesses, with over 40 percent describing it as a strategic goal and basis for innovation.
Boards would increasingly turn to their IT teams for more than just business continuity. They want them to help them function in the new normal of remote work, unlock the potential of their data, compete by launching digital goods and services, and fulfill their sustainability goals. At the same time, the market’s scarcity of talents and knowledge can make implementing cloud transformation initiatives much more challenging.
To address all of these issues, Cloudreach has introduced SMART Management. Unlike traditional services, SMART Management would make cloud transformation project resourcing simple by combining cloud managed and professional services into a single contract, delivered by an agile DevOps team. As a consequence, Cloudreach anticipates that clients can be certain that their cloud infrastructure will not only be available and safe, but will also be updated on a regular basis.
DevOps, FinOps, Cloud Security
Cloudreach clients may add and remove resources from their DevOps team as needed, scaling up and down as needed to adapt and support their business goals as they change, thanks to the service’s flexibility. Clients may call on the whole skill set of Cloudreach’s professional and managed services, from cloud strategy, architecture, and engineering to data science, FinOps, sustainability Ops, and cloud security, to adjust not only the size but also the emphasis of the elastic team.
“Businesses racing towards the cloud often assume that management and modernization are part of the same package, but this is often far from the reality. Cloud services require alternative approaches to deliver cohesive and ever-evolving business outcomes.” said Shanoor Hussain, Head of Cloud Managed Services at Cloudreach. “With SMART Management, we’re essentially offering Cloudreach-as-a-service. Customers will benefit and learn from an embedded team of the best and brightest cloud experts in the industry, eliminating the IT skills gap so businesses can realize their cloud modernization goals and accelerate value creation.”
Cloudreach’s proprietary tools, Cloudamize, Sunstone, and Conductor, are supporting the SMART Management offering. Sunstone provides DevOps teams with a strategy for modernizing their infrastructure. Customers’ backlogs are created, success indicators are defined, and the capabilities required to meet financial, productivity, and sustainability goals are determined. Cloudreach teams are then dispatched to work on the backlog while also supporting the environment’s fundamental requirements.
SMART Management adapts team size and capabilities as needed based on the backlog and scope to produce revolutionary outcomes, whether the goal is to increase revenue through digital goods and services or to reduce the carbon impact.
