We are honored to share that the DevOps team at Flux7 was named to the CRN Magazine 2018 Next-Gen 250 list for the second consecutive year. In case you are unfamiliar, this annual list identifies IT solution providers who have embraced emerging technologies and are setting the pace for the rest of the channel in their adoption. Those on the list have been identified by experts at The Channel Company as meeting their customers’ ever-changing IT needs in areas such as cloud based technologies, IoT, virtualization, mobility, business analytics and business intelligence.

Next Gen Cloud Computing in Action
G6 Hospitality, the parent brand of Motel 6 and Studio 6, challenged itself to a major transformation of its technology platforms. Working with the DevOps team at Flux7, the brand utilized leading technologies to achieve its goal to be cloud-first in its technology approach, to increase the ‘option value’ of the G6 Hospitality technology platforms, and to increase the speed of its technology platforms. Designed to address the rapidly changing landscape of the hospitality space, G6 Hospitality is focused on increasing its responsiveness, connectivity, and mobile-friendliness.
Flux7’s deep AWS expertise allowed them to hit the ground running as they joined the G6 Hospitality team. Through a structured transition plan, it taught the G6 Hospitality team how to use, maintain, and extend the new systems. Now due to the flexibility of the AWS cloud platform, the G6 Hospitality team is able to explore and test new business initiatives faster with less risk. And, with its agile scrum approach, the team is also able to subsequently innovate, build, and test faster -- with less cost. Changes that took several months before can now take just a couple of weeks. Read the full story of the G6 IT 2.0 program and Flux7 here.
