Build sustainable competitive advantage in a fast-paced digital world with the right cloud strategy tailored to your business objectives.
Be a Cloud-first Organization
While most enterprises are using the cloud, many still rely heavily on traditional IT, simply using cloud services tactically, such as in development and testing. The pace of cloud adoption is often constrained by not having a clear business case, not defining a comprehensive organizational transformation plan, or a failure to identify the risks accurately.
Enterprises need to develop comprehensive strategies for making the transition to a cloud-first way of working, where the cloud is the preferred and prioritized IT model in order to:
The microservices architecture is a design approach to build a single application as a set of small services. Each service runs in its own process and communicates with other services through a well-defined interface using a lightweight mechanism, typically an HTTP-based application programming interface (API). Microservices are built around business capabilities; each service is scoped to a single purpose. You can use different frameworks or programming languages to write microservices and deploy them independently, as a single service, or as a group of services.
Infrastructure as Code
Infrastructure as code is a practice in which infrastructure is provisioned and managed using code and software development techniques, such as version control and continuous integration. The cloud’s API-driven model enables developers and system administrators to interact with infrastructure programmatically, and at scale, instead of needing to manually set up and configure resources. Thus, engineers can interface with infrastructure using code-based tools and treat infrastructure in a manner similar to how they treat application code. Because they are defined by code, infrastructure and servers can quickly be deployed using standardized patterns, updated with the latest patches and versions, or duplicated in repeatable ways.

Cloud-Native: A Revolution in IT
We create cloud-native applications that bring business agility. We leverage partner PaaS solutions, or design, build and manage PaaS platforms directly for customers with services that include:
- Micro-services: Accelerating time-to-market with smaller and logical units of deployment
- Containerization: Quickly move, enhance and scale applications with independent containers enabling modular development and deployment
- Agile and BDD excellence: Adopting our agile framework, supporting its technical aspects and enabling agile testing
- DevOps: Changing organizational culture, skills and approaches in a move toward end-to-end automation and continuous deployment
Proven Experience in Accelerating IT Change
Our cloud-native PaaS services help digital enterprises quickly innovate, experiment and scale to market demands. We work with leading PaaS solution providers, including both public (Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google, Force.com etc.) and Cloud Foundry-based products (including Pivotal Cloud Foundry and IBM Bluemix).
We brought together DevOps and cloud for PostNord using IBM Bluemix PaaS to create an application that supported a new online international shipping service. New enhancements can be deployed continually to improve the service.
