what our customers say
The sheer complexity of the Business Catalyst migration and tight timeframe to complete the project required us to engage with a partner who had experience in both datacenter transformation projects and Amazon Web Services. It was key that we completed the project on time and within budget, while ensuring our customers weren’t adversely affected.
As a cutting edge, rapidly growing company, we knew that we needed a solution that was flexible with our growth and expansion, while still providing the strength and reliability we needed. AWS provided all this, along with a solution provider like 2nd Watch as a member of our team that is always ready to assist. It’s clear from our experience already that we made the right choice.
As a former executive at Iron Mountain and now owner of multiple businesses and an active consultant, I’m rarely pleasantly surprised by a company claiming to have a new formula for a way to do something, especially with technology. 2nd Watch significantly exceeded my expectations when they conducted a Technology Assessment on my most technology dependent business. They identified ways to move to cloud computing that were more secure, efficient and better maintained. Equally important was that the solution was more cost effective than my current situation. In all areas, I recommend 2nd Watch and plan to utilize them in the future. I am a champion of 2nd Watch, their people and their strategy for cloud solutions and products.
I hired the Team at 2nd Watch for consultant working regarding our IT network. As a small growing company we had struggled with our growth in to the next level of business. Between Jeff and Kris I could not be any happier, their service and expertise was unmatched. What started out as a difficult problem for us was simplified and our once short-term solution became a long term plan.
We hired 2nd Watch to help us scope, design, and deploy our AWS IaaS. The effort was a core component of a strategic project and we needed to get it right the first time. The project was a success – we were able to quickly and cost-effectively complete the IaaS deployment – because of 2nd Watch’s involvement and expertise.
Our IT department is very lean, so systems infrastructure issues can easily distract our resources from more value-added strategic work. We are looking for ways to avoid operational infrastructure burdens, as well as their associated capital infrastructure costs. The AWS product set is perfectly aligned with these goals. With AWS and 2nd Watch, we have found a much more cost effective way to keep the lights on for a critical part of our infrastructure while reducing the risk of IT resources getting distracted from our core business strategies.
