What we do
Softcat's Cloud Design Service architects the right cloud for you, tailored to your requirements. We first assess your priorities and understand your workloads before producing a suitable solution for a secure and scalable cloud platform, specific to your organisation. This ensures faster and more cost-effective cloud adoption.
We have a broad range of certified experts and partners with knowledge, skills and experience in a range of different cloud platforms and use cases. Our specialists stay on top of cloud developments to ensure they are familiar with the current options and best practices.
We put security at the heart of our design. It’s imperative that cloud platforms are secure and we ensure that the right policies and controls are in place to protect data and form the basis for a safe and secure cloud infrastructure.
We work hand-in-hand with you to collect information that helps us understand your organisation’s challenges in order to design a tailored cloud. We need to understand the specifics of the applications, data and business use so that our design incorporates the right technologies for an agile and cost-effective cloud environment.
Once we’ve gathered all the information from you and your organisation, we produce a final blueprint that’s completely bespoke to your service requirements. We’re not tied to any single vendor; the design will be unique, based on your organisation’s priorities using the most appropriate infrastructure and supporting services, whether that’s Azure or Amazon Web Services (AWS).
We offer independent advice with the vision and objectives of your organisation at the heart and work with you to provide a bespoke design, tailored to your requirements. We provide access to a range of platforms, we have strong relationships with all the major cloud vendors and an in-depth understanding of the services they provide. We also work with over 90 expert engineers to advise on specialist areas. Our large technical architecture team are committed to designing a secure solution, making this a simple first step on the way to building you an effective, successful cloud.
