Whether you’re planning your first migration to the cloud or looking to optimise existing cloud infrastructure, we navigate the various cloud services to unleash the unlimited potential for innovation and transformation offered by public cloud. We create and run highly available, secure, and cost-effective cloud platforms, designing and running cloud architecture, migrating existing applications, and helping you run and continuously innovate your cloud environment.

Cloud consulting service challenges


You want to migrate to the cloud but you don’t know where to start. You don’t have the capabilities to design cloud infrastructure or manage a cloud migration internally.


You have an existing cloud solution but you don’t think you are getting the most from it. Costs are too high and you aren’t seeing any improvements.


Your business is outgrowing your current cloud infrastructure or on-premise data centres, which is limiting your ability to scale.


You don’t have the resources to maintain your existing on-premise solution and ensure the necessary level of performance, security and compliance.


Server crashes and outages are impacting productivity. You are concerned about managing security and disaster recovery in-house.


You need a cloud solution to better support remote working. More of your workforce are working from home and need to access data and applications remotely.

Cloud strategy

We work closely with you to understand your current position and define business challenges and objectives for cloud adoption. Following this we will assess the suitability of the systems and applications to be migrated to the cloud, taking connectivity and integration needs into consideration. Based on our findings we will make recommendations for cloud adoption. This may involve modernising or rebuilding applications so they can perform optimally in the cloud.

Cloud migration

Cloud migrations can take many different forms. We have experience in lift-and-shift migration strategies, and migrations to cloud-native services. We can advise or completely manage the transition for both on-premise to cloud and cloud to cloud migrations without business interruption.

Cloud architecture

Cloud Architecture strategy is dependent on what success looks like for your business. We will collaborate with you to define an architecture strategy to maximise value for you and your business. Once we have defined the right way forward, our experts will design and build the cloud infrastructure that’s right for your platforms and applications. If you have an existing cloud solution we will perform a cloud health check to analyse your current architecture and make recommendations for improvements.

Cloud operations

We can help reduce complexity in your existing cloud infrastructure to optimise costs and streamline operational processes. See our Cloud Maintenance services for more information on how we can look after your cloud environment.

In a fast-paced, competitive marketplace, you need a reliable technology partner who sets accurate and realistic expectations and delivers on their promises. We provide exceptional customer experience, open and honest accountability, and robust project management. Our proven procedures mean you can enjoy the success of a project being delivered accurately and on time.

Delivering the right cloud consultancy outcomes

Our cloud maintenance services provide these benefits:

Innovation and transformation

Cloud propels business transformation, making it possible to quickly expand product and services in order to develop new revenue streams faster.

Cost efficiencies

Up-front costs are minimised, with decreased capital expenditure and a predictable monthly operating cost.

Increased agility

Cloud changes with you, so it can expand as your business grows, or be scaled back if necessary. This allows your business to deliver value quickly whilst scaling seamlessly to fulfil customer demand.

Reduced maintenance

Maintenance of cloud services is minimal and can be broadly automated where appropriate. The majority of patch management is handled by the cloud provider.
