Cloud Services

The times when companies didn’t have to seriously deal with IT cloud services are long gone. The seemingly endless new technical possibilities of cloud services create almost limitless opportunities and possibilities for many companies. Key technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence in particular make potential for innovation possible that was unthinkable years ago.

The advantages of the cloud are obvious:
  • when you want (at any time).

  • as fast as you want (infinitely scalable).
  • and accessible from anywhere (global availability).

  • Pay what you use (only pay for what you actually use).

  • Cost transparency (which costs for which service).

  • No more need to constantly deal with expensive upgrades of existing systems without gaining real added value afterwards.

  • Big data, AI and machine learning are only possible with cloud services.

The infrastructures in our own data centers are de facto not even able to do this.
In the “autonomous driving” environment, a vehicle generates around 40 terabytes (!) of data per hour of driving time.

And most importantly:

The formula applies here: digital transformation = migration + modernisation

For many companies, the operation of reliable and highly available IT services is not their core business. So, why continually invest in this
area? Concentrate on your core business and your customer services. Use the advantages of the cloud services for the development of new business areas or the expansion of existing business areas.
There is currently a lot of confusion in the market, as many companies are not yet sure about which cloud services they can use and how,
and whether they even should. Essentially, there are 3 approaches to digitization that must be strictly separated from each other.


Porting of the existing infrastructure to the cloud without wanting to achieve functional extensions. The added value for companies results primarily from the new possibilities of cloud services themselves. This is the fastest way to generate added value.


The focus here is on using the clout of the company through the combination of modernization and migration. This increases an organization’s ability to take advantage of the new technologies more quickly and to concentrate fully on the core business and the rapid implementation of the corporate strategy. In addition, the fundamental question of how the business units interlock with the IT organization must also be clarified.

The new way of working Business and IT

In any case, the conventional cooperation models must be reconsidered. In any case, it is evident that the business units are no longer necessarily dependent on the internal IT department.
At the same time, the IT department needs to be clear about what operating models it wants to offer to support cloud services in order to maintain governance over IT services and costs, as well as transparency and security.


So that the future opportunities in multicloud environments can also be used for the first time, a redesign of the widespread client-server architectures towards micro-services and container architectures is essential for in-house developments. The same applies to the introduction of agile processes and methods in order to achieve the goal of quickly adapting existing IT services. Functional extensions should also be implemented very deliberately, from which you can benefit in the long term. Here, too, the targeted use of innovative services, which are only available in the cloud, should bring benefits.

Our services for you:

cloud migration

We support companies that have already planned concrete measures in the fast and reliable transition to the cloud. Depending on the chosen migration strategy, our experienced experts will help you switch to the new services.

cloud transformation

Our experienced software and enterprise architects will help you transform your existing application architecture. The extent to which standard platforms can be used to replace complex in-house developments is also examined. Where necessary, the application landscapes are transferred to a new, modern cloud architecture that allows scaling to be as independent as possible from the manufacturers.

cloud strategy

We support you in choosing the right cloud services from AWS or Microsoft. As an independent consulting company, we find the path that offers you the greatest added value.
