“We are now able to operate anywhere in the world, from any location, at any time and potentially with any device.”

Chris Fosberry, CTO, Argus Media

The Challenge

Argus wanted to ensure that the business-critical data and intelligence these journalists created could be seamlessly captured, collated and published to traders in advance of the markets opening.

The Solution

Argus already used Citrix to access its reporting and publishing systems. It wanted to integrate this with a cloud-based solution that would be reliable, scalable and hassle-free. Cloudreach introduced Argus to the features and benefits of Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The Partnership

With Cloudreach Argus was able to implement a global solution in AWS and manage the website hosting for its paywall and trader portal solutions.

The Outcome

Following a successful launch, Cloudreach was asked to provide a range of managed services that would help to keep all of Argus’ business-critical services running 24/7.
