Cloud Data Modernization

As CIOs and CDOs are leading efforts to support their Businesses during & after the Covid disruption, some of the challenges in the legacy Data platforms have become more prominent. 

  • Inability to quickly scale capacity based on market conditions.
  • Large maintenance & operations costs - Hardware, license, DBA & Application support
  • Lack of support for Agile development needs to be driven by Digital Transformation 

The leading cloud data platforms from Azure & AWS offer a compelling & ever-maturing value proposition to overcome these challenges. This coupled with increased pressure on Capex & Opex costs has accelerated the CIO’s need to embark on a Data Modernization Journey

Typically, in our experience, Enterprises who have invested in cloud data modernization journeys have realized payback in the same year leading to -

  • Reduction in IT Infrastructure & Product license costs of up to 50%
  • A decrease in Data Platform Maintenance & Operations costs of up to 30%.
