Cloud aaS Strategies

Many of the industries we support have started to move to the cloud, yet according to statistics these industries are not prepared for an "aaS" economy.  In order to ensure the right aaS solutions are used, we at 7Strategy Group believe that it is imperative to have the right business strategies in place to use the aaS solution to their full capabilities. Our strategies provide focus in key areas: accessibility, security, streamlined cost, scalability and infinite life span.  When we meet with our customers our goal is to build a partnership that helps us bring their business needs to life and give them a refreshed approach that will increase their customer satisfaction. 

7Strategy Group provides as-a-service (aaS) cloud architecture solution integration. aaS’ refers to an increasing number of services that are delivered over the internet rather than provided locally, or, onsite. (e.g. Infrastructure, Platform, Software, Identity and Access Management, Integration) these internet-delivered services are providing companies the ability to customize their computing environments and design the strategies they desire, on-demand.

For the industries we support their customers need the ability to log into any linked devices from anywhere, still be able to see all of their data, and have the same user experience. Providing complete strategies that look at the big picture, with the end user in mind, is what our team strives to provide with our aaS solutions.

These strategies and solutions paired with the processes employed in our cross-functional teams give us the ability to innovate and integrate quickly, meet/exceed our industry customers’ needs and ultimately, stay competitive.
