Beyondsoft Extends AWS Capabilities through Joint Venture with 1Strategy
Today Beyondsoft Consulting announces a joint venture with 1Strategy, LLC, a member of the AWS Partner Network (APN), to further strengthen cloud services, solutions, and offerings delivered to enterprise clients.
Seattle, WA (April 26, 2016) – Beyondsoft Consulting has entered into a partner agreement with 1Strategy, LLC, a consulting firm that provides customers with design, implementation, and services on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. The strategic partnership with 1Strategy further strengthens Beyondsoft’s cloud business enterprise by extending its delivery and development capabilities on the AWS Cloud.
“Rich Uhl and his team’s capabilities in this space are unparalleled,” shared Ben Wang, CEO of Beyondsoft. “We conducted two years of extensive research on the future use of the cloud and who the key players were going to be. In that research we found a highly fragmented market space; the majority of the companies providing DevOps were limited to a few startup groups and there are no companies operating at scale,” shared Wang. After identifying these future market opportunities, Beyondsoft decided to build its own cloud services group led by Ezhilarasan "Ez" Natarajan, Vice President and Head of the Cloud Services Business Unit. This joint venture is the next step for Beyondsoft’s comprehensive solutions to provide the scalability and stability that 1Strategy and Beyondsoft customers need in the future.
1Strategy will now serve as the services delivery arm for the joint venture providing AWS offerings. These services will include application development and transformation (DevOps), security, cost optimization, and big data and data center migration services. 1Strategy has successfully helped its customers design, build, deploy, and move workloads to the AWS Cloud. Together, the companies are helping provide a complete cloud management portfolio that will give customers fast, flexible access to the AWS Cloud - offering a comprehensive, end-to-end solution for enterprise-level businesses in the automotive, retail, manufacturing, entertainment, and technology sectors.
“Beyondsoft’s continual success in the IT industry is based on three tenants: our customer needs, the technology, and our people. Investing in all three simultaneously is a successful formula. By continually investing in our staff, we scale their ability to keep pace with market speed tech trends, thus preparing them to ensure our client success. Leading with 1Strategy in this space will continue that.” – Ben Wang, CEO, Beyondsoft Consulting“As a former Enterprise Solution Architect at AWS, I saw a growing number of companies which were looking to leverage the full value and benefits of the cloud, and were eager for assistance. Recognizing the financial and geographical barriers these companies sometimes faced, I developed a non-traditional model in the world of cloud consulting services: help the customers help themselves. With Beyondsoft, I can now scale that original goal.” – Rich Uhl, Founder, 1Strategy “As we expand our North American operations, our goals are to help clients create more innovative products, better engage with customers, and find more efficient ways of running their businesses. With the ability to build on AWS, we can help clients leverage the cloud with fluidity and scalability they never thought possible.” – Ezhilarasan "Ez" Natarajan, Vice President and Head of the Cloud Services Business Unit.
