Cloud Computing

Improve your response to business needs by leveraging the cloud.

Maximize Cloud ROI

Embracing Cloud computing will allow your organization to drive resiliency, agility, and innovation. Deriving a strategy for what you are trying to achieve, preparing your organization for transformation, deploying the appropriate architecture, and establishing operational excellence is paramount to your cloud success. 

SDG has the expertise and relationships to help you achieve your Cloud objectives. We collaborate with our partners, Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS), to create the right solutions for your needs.

Migrate current applications

Many organizations initially attempt to rehost or replatform applications to the cloud. In theory this sounds simple, however it can often lead to performance issues and increased hosting costs if organizations are not informed. SDG can help with both the strategy and the mechanics of this approach, ensuring that your cloud experience meets your needs. 

Business transformation

Responding to the needs of your users and customers is critical for business success. Refactoring your applications for the Cloud can provide elasticity and allows you to react, scale, and thrive. Transforming multiple applications with a consistent and extensible Cloud architecture will reduce investments and promote innovation.

Cloud driven agility

Incorporating cloud-native services into your architecture can improve business agility while providing increased resiliency and performance for your applications. However, it can also make you dependent on a single Cloud provider. SDG will help you leverage the highest value cloud services to match your Cloud vendor strategy. 

Strategic partnerships

SDG partners with both Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.  Our certified consultants ensure that we are helping you properly leverage these technologies to deliver your digital products.  

How it works
Each cloud journey is unique

We help organizations transform into modern digital product organizations. Most often cloud computing is at the center of this transformation. Preparing your organization for this transformation and choosing the right path will dictate your success. 

The right path requires the right architecture. Mapping your business needs to your architecture ensures the right level of agility and resiliency to meet your organizational goals. Your cloud architecture provides the footings for ongoing operational excellence. 

Operational excellence is rooted in predictability of the software and ability of the platform to heal itself. Integrating operational thinking into your cloud transformation will greatly improve business outcomes and cost of ownership.
