With the aim to bring innovation to clients faster, and help them best leverage the transformational power, economics, and agility of the cloud, Crayon has signed a Strategic Collaboration Agreement with Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Enterprise customers are seen achieving their target business outcomes faster by transitioning to a modern, optimized, cloud-based model, thanks to their reliance on AWS. Crayon on the other hand has a strong track record in migration strategy, implementation, total cost optimization, and cloud economics services.
This alliance will help customers not only have a best-in-class service team but also understand the software and infrastructure they have and how to best manage their overall IT estate once they are operating in the cloud. According to both Crayon and AWS, this latest collaboration will benefit customers wanting to optimize their overall IT estate utilizing best practices in their cloud adoption framework.
