Logicworks, an NYC-based company, specializing in secure cloud solutions, has rolled out a portfolio of specialized professional services for Amazon Web Services (AWS). The program is custom-built to support customers who have made the strategic decision to use AWS as a key platform for their IT infrastructure and need highly specialized expertise, engineering, and consulting services.
The new offering is based on two tracks. The Migration track follows AWS Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF) and Migration Readiness and Planning (MRP) constructs, covering the full spectrum of requirements for new AWS projects including strategy, planning, technology readiness, architecture design, and managed migration. The Optimization track follows AWS Well-Architected Framework (WAFR); a guiding concept that covers a full suite of analysis and improvement products for current AWS customers. It includes architecture, cost optimization, security & compliance, and DevOps automation. Logicworks will offer end-to-end consulting and engineering services for both tracks.
The company has also recruited industry veteran and IT executive Chuck Price to run Global Professional Services. Chuck has been involved in technology and business leadership for over 25 years including Global CIO for the SANS Institute, CEO and founder of Ajubeo, SVP of Technology for Coresite, head of technology for TD Ameritrade Trust Company, and has held C-level positions at Fiserv Investment Support Services, Requisite Technology, Syngistix and Net Library.
“Logicworks is the industry leader in AWS infrastructure management and DevOps,” said Price. “Customers have told us that they need our guidance well before the Operate and Run phase of adoption. Our professional services practice will allow us to bring value to customers at any stage of the journey to the AWS cloud from strategy to design to complex application portfolio migrations.”
While AWS and other large providers have acquired great market penetration, customers still need help in generating full value for what they have purchased. Initiatives like this one are designed to meet that need.
