10 Most Promising Cloud Consulting/Services Companies - 2019

Organizations across the globe are embracing digital transformation plans and projects, with cloud computing forming the de facto platform for fueling these modernization efforts. While companies are now being “cloudified,” business agility and cost savings have been accelerated more than ever in the wake of increased accessibility, security, and storage capabilities. According to a report by Gartner, the cloud technology services market is expected to grow by 17.3 percent in 2019, and by the following year, almost 90 percent of organizations will utilize it to improve their offerings. While the technology excites many with the promise of unlimited data storage and the ability to access or share it from across the globe, the need of the hour is to identify the exact organizational requirements to be fulfilled before making the shift. Companies with multiple applications running on legacy systems should have a clear understanding of the variety of cloud services available in the current marketplace before they can identify the provider best suited to their requirements.

The right service provider for a business should provide a balance of customer support for problems that continue affecting its clients, and an innovation plan that fits the long-term needs of its clients. The overall portfolio of services offered by a cloud service provider should be taken into consideration, while a service and integration roadmap might aid organizations in identifying vendors who align their own growth plans.

The organizational location also has a key role to play in deciding the appropriate cloud service provider. Regulatory and data privacy rules governing personal data might bring in specific requirements for certain companies, so it is vital to understand how organizational data can be secured in keeping with regulatory compliance requirements. The architecture provided by the service provider and the support it ensures to customers is pivotal in shortlisting appropriate consulting or service providers from the market. Most importantly, the selected vendor should be aware of the client’s business objectives and their decision to move to the cloud, and aid in a seamless migration process that minimizes downtime. The right blend of technical expertise and services is what companies look for providing excellent service to their end-users.

The cloud technology also provides its users with the advantage of enhanced data security. As opposed to traditional data storage systems where information could be stolen, lost, or damaged due to multiple reasons—ranging from power outages and manual errors to cyber attacks—the cloud for storing information ensures its security, owing to the need to meet regulatory compliance requirements. In addition, the technology offers advanced data backup and recovery measures, which ensures that little information is lost accidentally.

As the number of cloud consulting and service providers braving the competition to provide better consulting and services to business organizations has filled to the brim, choosing an appropriate provider is a cumbersome, yet magnanimous task for CTOs, CIOs, and CEOs. CIOReview magazine’s editorial team, with the support and guidance from cloud technology veterans and industry analysts, has selected a list of cloud consulting/service providers that streamline business processes and define the path to success.
