As a company with constant expansion, AJE Group looked to add value in the process of growth at every step (or sip).
For this, it required a managed service for their “new” Digital Cloud environment. Working with CloudHesive, a strategic AWS Partner, with it’s team of experts, we met and exceeded the clients expectations.
Many companies have digital transformation strategies underway but AJE Group required a specific solution that accelerated their processes and ensured scalability. Once we architected and deployed their business transformation solution, we worked with them on the how to maximize their investment with a CloudHesive Managed Service.

Among other achievements, the reduction of 10% in the execution times of analytical models and a saving of 30% in infrastructure costs.
The next steps, together with CloudHesive, consist of the migration of business infrastructure, the incorporation of big data and artificial intelligence services and efforts focused on doubling the reduction of time in processes.
The customer’s Digital Transformation strategy was architected and deployed by CloudHesive with emphasis placed on the adherence of customer standards. This required working with the customer to establish a baseline understanding, baseline standard and baseline operational processes ahead of the implementation and transition to support. The primary lesson learned around this is it was assumed at the start information already existed but needed to be developed ahead of transition to the cloud. While this did not extend the timeline, it did extend the level of effort to meet customer expectations and deadline.
