Capability ExpertiseTechnologyCloud Strategy & Migration
Organizations can approach digital transformation and the capabilities of cloud computing in providing cost efficiency, scalability, robustness, security, management/administration, technical maturity, currency, and a range of service offerings including multi-cloud/hybrid deployment. Cloud computing offers a myriad of new business and technical opportunities to firms, but it also introduces a completely different paradigm of information technology asset management, configuration, administration, adoption, and ongoing operations. Contrary to some expectations, cloud providers are not responsible for the end-to-end cyber resilience of the firms they host, rather security is a shared responsibility. Understanding individual Client and provider responsibilities, as well as joint responsibilities, is critical to maintaining a robust security posture.

At Trexin, we will help determine feasible options and an optimal approach for the Client’s cloud adoption and operation. We emphasize that we do not do “cookie cutter” or “one size fits all” approaches. Delivering cloud solutions, be it a full migration or an acquisition onboarding, will assist the Client in finding the right provider for their business technology needs, objectives, and circumstances.

We have expertise in Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud (GCP), and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).

Trexin’s goal is to help you avoid mistakes that create unnecessary risk and disruption along your path.

Cloud migrations today are as much people, process, culture, governance, and change management challenges as a technology challenge. Trexin provides skilled and trusted advisors who will help move your cloud journey into the right direction. Trexin’s pragmatic approach and iterative way of delivering business value helps identify your specific business needs, diagnosing the current state challenges, and providing specific business value and improved solutions to make your cloud aspirations successful.

Our advisors have been on this journey, know the obstacles you may face, and can help your team align behind actionable strategy; even acting as “player coaches” to mentor and transform your development and operations teams. We can help your organization understand the exact technology transformations that are needed and assist in planning, managing, and executing a program that will enable the success of your business.

Help me resolve the complexity of application and data dependencies

Typically, our Clients push their current applications and data to public and/or private clouds, aiming for increased speed to market and more flexible scalability. However, Cloud Service Providers (CSPs like Amazon, Microsoft, and Google) add hundreds of new features to their cloud offerings every year. Understanding and leveraging these features are key to achieving cost savings and improved security. Adopting these new features for complex legacy applications, workflows, and data is tough. We help you master these challenges with our tools and methodologies:

  • Data colocation and abstraction processes
  • Data classification and lineage
  • Standard tooling for data and application dependency mapping
