Deliver Scalable & Cost Effective Solutions With Foghorn and Amazon Web Services in the Public Sector
Amazon Web Services: For the Digital Transformation of Government & Public Services
Digital transformation is here. In this new era, users demand and expect services in an accelerated time frame.
Most public institutions are shackled by higher data volumes, lower budgets, and a rise in cyber threats. To combat these challenges, many GovTech teams are turning to digital transformation to harness the power and security of the modern public cloud.
Benefits of Having Foghorn as an AWS Public Sector Partner
Certified AWS Partners guide government and public sector organizations towards the best fit solutions to leverage the powers of AWS Cloud.
Here’s a list of benefits you can see with an AWS partner:
Simplify storage and management of personal information in compliance with the evolving privacy regulations to support compliance needs based on the applications used.
Move from traditional data centers to AWS cloud and provide infrastructure managed services.
Protect and scale cloud data on AWS with backup and storage solutions.
Set up a virtual contact center or a help desk with Amazon Connect.
Solving Public Sector Challenges – The AWS Way
With massive engineering teams solving problems for enterprise around the clock, Amazon Web Services is a public cloud leader that GovTech organizations trust.
As cloud advocates we often have to overcome a deep distrust that organizations will be able to replicate their data center infrastructure on AWS cloud.
In order to get companies to migrate to the cloud, many consultants championing the cloud are trying to make their client’s cloud infrastructure environment look as much like their on-premises setup as possible. While this approach is faster, the results can make costs higher cost and in the end the customer loses the benefits from what the cloud can offer.
Big organizations are often not equipped to have infrastructure moved and improved. Applications are lifted and shifted, leaving behind a legacy technical debt. It’s a problem that requires a lot of planning.
IT Teams are in charge of running/maintaining software that they didn’t actually write, often licensed on a per hard-cpu fingerprint basis. The IT Team is then required to run — as a matter of statute, policy, or support term — in the exact same way they did on-premise.
At Foghorn Consulting, we celebrate legacy architecture and identify legacy architecture obstacles— designing opinionated, best-practice cloud infrastructure for our customers’ unique application needs.
