Organizations of all sizes and industries are moving away from on-premises infrastructure for the flexibility, scalability, and speed of the cloud. Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses are relying even more heavily on cloud services to accelerate their digital transformation and keep up with customer and market demands.
Smartronix, an OceanSound Partners company, designs, builds, manages, and secures the world’s mission-critical cloud solutions. We are the leading provider of next-generation multi-cloud platforms to highly regulated and security-first organizations. Establishing the Smartronix Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE) is another way we are ensuring the highest level of cloud innovation and expertise for our customers.
The pursuit of excellence
The CCoE is a cross-functional team of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) focused on building sales, delivery, capability, and partner excellence. We emphasize establishing practices, driving collaboration, and spearheading the adoption of best practices across a range of disciplines—including financial management, operations, and security and compliance as well as overseeing the deployment of cloud solutions and supporting tools.
The CCoE assists customers in orchestrating their cloud initiatives and managing the cloud adoption lifecycle—from strategy, roadmap, design, migration, and application modernization to cybersecurity, compliance, and next-generation managed services. These capabilities are delivered within the Smartronix Cloud Assured™ framework for the development and optimization of repeatable cloud best practices and tools that can be used to optimize the delivery of cloud solutions.
The formation of the Smartronix CCoE supports our position as a national leader in cloud solutions. Customers look to us as a trusted advisor as they navigate their path through the cloud adoption lifecycle and leverage the innovation cloud brings to achieving their mission goals. Smartronix will continue to build and manage solutions that meet enterprise cloud needs now and into the future.Director, CCoE at Smartronix
A lifecycle approach to cloud services
The Smartronix CCoE accelerates digital transformation for customers through a lifecycle approach to cloud services, covering four key phases:
- Strategy: Creating or evolving IT and business strategies to take advantage of the cloud
- Design: Prioritizing, planning, and migrating existing workloads and designing solutions to leverage the scalability, availability, and economy of cloud solutions
- Implementation: Implementing and executing the digital transformation strategy without slowing down day-to-day business operations
- Managed Services: Freeing IT teams to focus on strategic, business priorities while maintaining secure, compliant, cost-efficient, and high-performing operations in the cloud
This framework has supported Smartronix’ ability to support state-of-the-art private, public, and hybrid cloud solutions to meet even the most stringent security and compliance mandates. You can see some of our major clients here, including the U.S. Army, Navy, and Marine Corps.
Partnership with CloudHealth
To meet customer demand and the need to analyze hundreds of millions of cloud events per month, we needed a cost management and governance platform built for multi-cloud environments.
We chose to partner with CloudHealth based on its data integrity, infrastructure stability, performance track record, and team expertise. Benefits we achieve with CloudHealth cover cloud cost optimization, operations, and security and compliance—providing customers with a consolidated view of cloud resources, customizable reporting dashboards, rightsizing and reservation recommendations, and automated governance policies.
The Smartronix and CloudHealth partnership is increasingly being relied on by organizations worldwide to optimize costs, govern their cloud environments, and stay within the confines of their cloud policies.
