NEW YORK, NY – JUNE 9, 2017 – Leading system integrator, managed services provider, and Microsoft Dynamics Gold Certified Partner AKA Enterprise Solutions continues the expansion of its Cloud consulting practice with the addition of Greg Inks, a Cloud technology expert, experienced digital marketing professional leveraging cloud computing, and veteran of the Big 5 consulting arena.
As AKA’s Cloud Practice Lead, Inks will tap into his experience working with Microsoft as well as some of the largest, most successful technology providers and client companies in the world to help customers define and evolve their Cloud strategy, with actionable migration plans that maximize ROI, reliability, and security.
“According to Gartner, the ‘Cloud shift’ will affect more than $1 trillion in IT spending,” said Inks. “Businesses are making serious financial commitments to the Cloud, and so are technology providers like Microsoft. These investments are going to change the landscape for every organization, and AKA Enterprise Solutions is in the perfect position to leverage its industry experience and tools like Microsoft Azure and Dynamics 365 to help customers truly transform their businesses.”
AKA’s Cloud Services Practice is focused on collaborating with customers to develop comprehensive Cloud strategies that align with business goals and budgets while helping reduce overall IT operations costs by migrating away from legacy on-premises data centers, modernizing to native Cloud applications, and realizing predictive results through Cloud machine learning and AI analytics. Practice areas include:
- Cloud Strategy Consulting – Working with customers to define and understand the costs of their cloud strategy, develop a road map to realize that strategy, and put them on track to transforming their business.
- Cloud Infrastructure Engineering – Getting customers up and running with Cloud Essentials, migrating their existing apps to the Cloud, building a hybrid data center that accommodates Cloud as well as on-premises applications, and working towards automating processes wherever possible.
- Cloud Managed Services – Moving customers out of the IT business so they can focus on their business and helping them take advantage of the operational and financial flexibility of the Cloud as well as AKA’s ability to run as a managed service provider.
- Native Cloud Application Development – Helping customers modernize their legacy systems with “Cloud Native” solutions that extend their existing analytics platform with machine learning and artificial intelligence powered by the cloud
“As we continue to grow, by diversifying our Cloud service offerings, we want to drive digital transformation across our client’s entire enterprise, going beyond traditional ERP and CRM projects we have been so successful with,” said Alan Kahn, Co-CEO of AKA. “Under Greg’s leadership, our Cloud Services Practice is ideally positioned to fuel unprecedented growth.”
