Gartner recently reported that firms are witnessing talent shortages that are preventing the deployment of technologies, especially Cloud. This mirrors what we’re being told by customers, that Cloud skills are increasingly hard to come by and expensive in DevOps and in Infrastructure & Operations.
As Cloud based services go to market and scale-up delivery to customers, the emphasis shifts from Development to Infrastructure and Operations, to ensure that production environments are operating at their best, code is running smoothly, and problems are identified quickly and rectified fast.
Like Cloud itself, the skills and bandwidth needed for DevOps is driven by events and demand, and it is expensive to have all the people you need available at all times. The range of skills grows and the demand fluctuates:

We aim to deliver the services you need at a lower, more effective cost than hiring onto the payroll, and can be as little as a couple of days of an engineer’s salary.
Our pricing is based on the complexity of your infrastructure, not time spent or tickets raised, so costs are predictable and scale with you.

This 9-page slide deck provides an overview of the Cloud skills and expertise Flexiion can deliver as a partner and how they can be used to address operational issues that can result from Cloud scale up.
Time was when Cloud was simple: you did or you didn’t. If you did, there was a couple of big brands to choose between, and away it went. Not any more, at least not for anyone with a complex requirement. This video (3.44min) looks at the growing importance of Cloud independence and the need for businesses to maintain flexibility and freedom of choice.
As an independent Cloud integrator, we help tech-enabled businesses fully utilise the Cloud to address business challenges: scale existing services, introduce new ones, build competitive advantage, grow and succeed.
