Cloud Transformation & Operations

The cloud lowers the barriers to attaining flexibility, scalability, stability and cost
control. smartShift has the unique tools and methods to Re-platform, Re-factor
or Re-architect your business to leverage the full potential of the cloud.

Cloud Transformation Challenges

Security & Compliance

  • Cloud security is a shared responsibility. Cloud providers have the mechanisms to implement and enforce security, but you need expertise to leverage them.
  • Ensuring that your cloud infrastructure supports your regulatory compliance needs requires specialized knowledge.

Cost Containment


  • It’s easy to implement systems in the cloud, but difficult to right-size it unless you know how.
  • Mapping your unique growth and scalability requirements to the right cloud solution requires experience and diligence.

Lack of Expertise


  • Maximizing your investment in cloud infrastructure requires specific skills to ensure that architectural, economic and management principles are properly incorporated.
  • The cloud is designed to function as transparently as possible to your business. You should entrust its day-to-day operation to experts who can keep it that way.

Business Disruption


  • Lack of proper migration planning can lead to unforeseen impacts on business operations.
  • Neglecting high-availability and disaster recovery in your new solution can expose you to unplanned downtime.
  • Relying on internal personnel to design and implement your cloud migration takes them away from important strategic work.
