Sridhar Bogelli, CEO of Apps Associates, noted that “We are pleased to become part of the VMware Cloud Provider Program which extends our capability as a managed services and consulting firm to enable our customers as they continue to invest in their cloud transformation strategies. Many of these customers have legacy Oracle environments that are integral to business operations and which are often highly customized. VMware Cloud on AWS allows these customers to increase agility, drive innovation, and reduce cost.”
Public clouds enable customers to gain flexibility and speed to respond to changing business needs, accelerate innovation, and align costs to business requirements. Customers are also recognizing the benefit of having public clouds integrate and work seamlessly with on-premises infrastructure to take advantage of existing teams, skill sets, tools, and processes.
