Cloudreach enables simple and scalable cloud transformation with a new DevOps as a Service offering.

When it comes to digital transformation, enterprises struggle to define, contract for and integrate partners to cohesively build, integrate and manage their ever-changing cloud estates. Cloudreach’s newly launched DevOps as a Service is positioned to change all that.

Traditional SI Consulting Models Don’t Scale

It’s no secret that the traditional approach to modernization, with disparate outsourcing and consulting organizations, doesn’t work. In fact, this model can add risk, cost, and complexity – and create obstacles to realizing business benefits. 

Yet, more than 10 years after the introduction of cloud computing, many enterprises continue to suffer the challenges and consequences of legacy IT and legacy partners…

  • Delivery pace –  Your cloud projects demand rapid and agile development practices due to changing business demands, but traditional project definition that demands fixed scope upfront is a hindrance.
  • Time to procure services – The fixed-fee contracting process is arduous, while time and materials provide too little specificity for targeted activities.
  • Delivery effectiveness –  IT and Operations are siloed and do not share the same goals, causing reduced velocity.
  • Vendor lock-in – Existing outsourcing partners are focused only on fixing resource gaps and not on helping organizations become self-sustainable, resulting in ongoing reliance on partners.
  • Resource churn –  Scope change and people rotation results in massive resource and knowledge churn.

To achieve true digital transformation and drive continuous innovation, enterprises must adopt cloud-native technology, data services and DevOps practices. After all, your business doesn’t stand still and neither should your approach to growth and change.

Cloud Scales. And So Should Your Development Model

Cloudreach’s new DevOps as a Service makes cloud outsourcing easy by providing a scalable and dynamic squad of Cloudreach DevOps engineers as a monthly subscription service. 

“In Gartner’s 2019 survey of organizations using DevOps, 65% said that their DevOps initiative relies, to some extent, on outsourced services. More recently, interest in product-centric development means customers are looking for service providers that can provide them with all the skills they need under one contract, whether ‘dev’ or ‘ops.’”2
Neil Barton, VP Analyst at Gartner

Dave Chapman, Head of Strategy and Professional Services at Cloudreach, describes it this way: “Cloudreach DevOps as a Service brings a DevOps skillset to any enterprise, whether they are new to the cloud or far along their modernization journey. Companies that undergo cloud transformation are better able to adapt to disruption and innovate faster. DevOps as a Service helps technology leaders to stand up a DevOps squad fast, scale up and down as needed, with the right cloud expertise on demand.”
