As more companies look to modernize their systems, the skills gap becomes even more pervasive. With both legacy and cloud-native development skills scarce, application modernization service suppliers can help customers accelerate cloud migration strategies. Enter the latest report from Forrester to help enterprises navigate the primary segments and capabilities of application modernization and migration services providers and to inform their selection strategies.
We are honored that Forrester has named Flux7 among the companies it has included in its Now Tech: Application Modernization and Migration Services Q1 2019 report. (You can download a complimentary copy here.) In the report, Flux7 is named a cloud development and cloud migration services specialist in the small service provider category, serving markets in North America including software, finance, and life sciences. Customers including G6 Hospitality, Rent-A-Center and TechNipFMC have engaged Flux7 to help modernize their IT platforms, apply an application modernization strategy, and apply automation within an Agile DevOps model to improve the security and efficiency with which services are delivered.
In addition, Flux7 helps close the skills gap by working hand-in-hand with its customers to teach them how to fish. We give customers the skills they need to understand how to use, change and extend infrastructure moving forward. Ultimately, this knowledge leads to greater independence, agility and business excellence. Unlike other organizations, Flux7 focuses on knowledge transfer throughout the course of our customer engagements, using a model where the engagement slowly transitions to your team. Thereby allowing them to take ownership and grow comfortable with the technologies and processes deployed in their environment while having an expert there to guide them at every step.
Forrester states in its report that “modernization and migration activities require a variety of skill sets, each of which can be difficult for an individual enterprise to recruit for, retain, and wield effectively in practice. For this reason, using services providers can help [organizations to]:
- Address skills shortages in legacy and cloud technologies by leveraging outside talent;
- Accelerate digital transformation with modernization and cloud migration expertise;
- Save money by eliminating reliance on outmoded solutions and technologies.”
At Flux7, we seek to make it possible for organizations to experiment more, fail cheap, and measure results accurately through an innovation lab strategy. Today’s report illustrates the power of this approach combined with Flux7 values of humbleness, transparency, and innovation to solve business challenges.
Flux7 is on a roll. We have also recently been named one of five Cool Vendors in the Gartner report, Cool Vendors in Business and IT Services, were ranked by Growjo among the fastest growing companies in the Austin area.
