We have extensive experience with a number of popular cloud hosting and software as a service providers. We work with providers who are best suited to our clients' individual needs. Our development team employ containerisation approaches which enables faster and more effective release cycles and can provide flexibility when moving between on premises and cloud hosting.
Our own product development activities include launching our own cloud native Software as a Service (SaaS) platform for delivering digital content called the Digital Library Cloud Service (DLCS). This has provided us with significant insight in developing and operating a modern cloud native SaaS platform. The managed service that we offer for the full DLCS platform is hosted on Amazon Web Services with our team devising and developing appropriate cost effective delivery and scaling approaches as part of the solution.
Our consultancy service focuses on ensuring the building blocks, strategy and high level approach for your product and services are correct at the outset to ensure governable, secure and cost effective cloud infrastructure. This may involve providing guidance on a gap analysis report on existing hosting infrastructure; providing options for migration strategies to cloud services; targeting specific aspects of your platform where you don't have the required skills but just want to get some assistance and knowledge transfer for your team and creating working prototypes of specific cloud services integrated into your existing infrastructure.
