As a multi-platform IT consulting firm, Alithya is focused on identifying and implementing solutions that help our clients reach and surpass their business goals. The rapid spike in demand for cloud migration services in general, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) in particular, spurred us to create a dedicated taskforce.   

AWS has been the most successful cloud service provider on the market since its launch over 15 years ago. More than one million companies of all sizes have embraced the pay-as-you-go platform for its flexible, scalable, reliable and secure approach to cloud computing. And it’s not hard to see why. AWS boasts over 200 services that comprise everything from storage and databases to enterprise applications and developer tools.   

While migrating your workloads to the cloud can seem like a daunting transformation, the shift will ultimately make your company more agile and innovative. To guide you through this process, you’ll want a qualified and trusted partner that’s as forward-thinking as AWS itself. Recognized as an AWS Advanced Tier Services Partners, Alithya possesses a strong team of trained and certified technical individuals with proven customer experience.   

In this article, you’ll get to know Alithya’s AWS taskforce a bit better and understand just what makes our solutions-oriented specialists stand out.   

A Personal Approach  

Our customers come to us with specific needs and business realities, all of which require personalized guidance and solutions.    

Companies may be motivated to start their cloud migration journey for a number of reasons, including:   

  • To reduce IT costs  
  • To become more agile  
  • To consolidate their databases  
  • To mitigate risk  
  • To enhance security  
  • To accelerate growth   

Our robust AWS taskforce has the necessary experience and expertise to thoroughly and efficiently evaluate both the needs of your business and your field.   

Are you a financial services company with 1,000+ employees looking to optimize customer experience in a way that satisfies even the most stringent security and regulatory standards? Or perhaps you’re in healthcare, looking for the best way to pool clinical data and share patient information between various stakeholders, across various information systems.   

When it comes to large-scale migrations, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. That’s why it’s essential to have partners on your side who know how to leverage the full power of AWS tools to make the transition as seamless as possible. For example, the AWS Cloud Adoption Readiness Tool is the best way to take stock of your company’s current strengths and weaknesses. From there, a plan is devised to fill any gaps and set you on the best possible path for a successful cloud migration.   

It’s essential to both anticipate and address potential challenges, which spares companies the costly trial-and-error process that too often prevents them from evolving their IT infrastructure.  

Ever-Evolving Expertise

Our services are only as strong as our people. That’s why we strive to foster a culture of ongoing education. We want to provide our curious and creative employees with ample external and internal training opportunities.   

One of the primary challenges of such a fast-paced field is knowing just where it will go next. While Alithya doesn’t possess the power to predict the future (yet!), we make sure our team members have access to the cutting-edge knowledge they need to respond to the unexpected.  Our team holds more than 50 AWS certifications, and that number is only set to grow. These qualifications reflect our commitment to being at the forefront of a field that is constantly in flux.  

How does this enthusiasm translate to our strategy and ability to deliver value to our clients? By staying ahead of the curve with the latest, most productive methods. We focus on what steps we can take in the short term to make us more effective and productive in the long term.   

A Global Vision

At Alithya, we believe that breaking down silos is the best way to leverage our multi-talented teams and meet our clients’ needs. Communication and collaboration are more than mere buzzwords: They’re core values that make it possible for our organization and taskforces to be agile when it’s needed most.   

And our comprehensive, customer-centric vision doesn’t just apply to connecting resources within the AWS taskforce. We are also experts at finding synergies between teams. Alithya’s varied service offerings and fluid intraorganizational communication make it a true one-stop shop. Our specialists are facilitators and strategists to their core. If we believe a client can benefit from another product or perspective, we don’t hesitate to put them in touch. We take in the full scope of our client’s needs and connect them to the technology and services that will actually improve their operations.   

The Right Strategists at the Right Time - and Beyond

Both Alithya and society at large are at an inflection point in the shift to cloud-based services. The pandemic has only accelerated the demand for more flexible and cost-effective solutions and we have risen to the occasion by solidifying and expanding our AWS offering.   

Whether you’re still evaluating your cloud infrastructure needs or are ready to jump into the process, Alithya’s AWS taskforce is here for you. Get in touch with our professionals today and see how the right partnership can make all the difference!
