Sysfore Technologies: Enabling a Smooth Transit to the Azure Platform
The cloud computing market in India is expected to see a ten-fold increase by 2015, from today’s estimated market size. Software as a Service (SaaS) will be a high demand in India, in comparison to the other cloud computing deployment models – Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). With attributes like cost reduction and scalability, it is a mistake to deem cloud as just an alternative. Sysfore Technologies Private Limited, headquartered in Bangalore, comprehends the benefits of cloud clearly and considers it as the right option, and not just another one. The company focuses on embracing cloud technologies with its expertise in Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform.
Unlike other players in the industry, Sysfore solely concentrates on Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform. The company has built strong capabilities on the Microsoft technology platform over the last decade, with demonstrated experience in helping customers transit to the Azure Platform. This makes Sysfore a unique partner of Microsoft, giving undivided attention to the cloud platform.
“We see cloud as a need for enterprises and instead of just doing service, we look at it from a technology adoption perspective for a customer.” says Ajith Mathew George, Co-founder and Director of Projects at Sysfore. The company helps customers understand when and where they fit into the cloud scenario while helping them maintain or migrate their applications.
Sysfore has established immense credibility in the Windows Azure Cloud Consulting space, having on boarded 55+ customers onto the Azure Cloud, performed 100+ consulting engagements, 34+ Migration Assists, 28+ Storage and Disaster Recovery Consulting Assignments, all in a small period of one year.
“As an organization with over a decade of experience, we see that being in the internet space has actually helped us understand the importance of cloud and to re-position our offerings, and in turn enable our existing and new customers to adopt the platform. We have been a Microsoft Azure Circle Partner since the inception of the program and are one of the first few companies to deliver solutions on the Azure platform.” adds Ajith Mathew George.
To help customers analyze their individual needs before migrating infrastructure functions to cloud, Sysfore follows a three-phase strategy. Firstly, the company helps its clients single out the functions which can be moved to cloud.Then it establishes a roadmap for the applications which need to be re-engineered to work on cloud. The organization calls it ‘Cloud Readiness Preparation’. Finally, the customers decide on the cloud deployment model-Private or Hybrid, and Sysfore chauffeurs them through the complete process of migration.
Moving forward, Sysfore’s newest focus is on delivering Responsive Web Design and Applications. Moving to the next level, the company sees BI as a key area which is going to be critical for cloud and has hence set itself up to provide better big data strategy and solutioning in order to scale and position itself.
