Ciklum, Scandinavia’s largest provider of nearshore and offshore IT development outsourcing in Ukraine, Belarus and Pakistan, announced in London this June the formation of a strategic partnership with Raythos Interactive, a consulting firm focused on enabling ISVs and other digital product ventures to accelerate the development and launch of innovative new products and services in the cloud.
“This partnership takes our engagement with ISVs and other digital product ventures to a new level.” said Craig Wilson, Managing Director, UK and Ireland, Ciklum. “Working closely with Raythos Interactive, we enable CTOs to better align strategy with design and development of new cloud apps.”
Commenting on this partnership, John Sotiropoulos, Founder and Principal Consultant of Raythos Interactive said, “Having held the role of Chief Architect in a large, international software business, I know from direct personal experience just how confusing the world of cloud computing can be. Technology vendors offer advice focusing on hosting models such as Private/Public cloud, PaaS, IaaS, etc.
The real challenge is relating these terms to a different paradigm which takes advantage of the cloud’s elasticity and makes the move from on-premise, packaged software to a subscription model with Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), a business success. I am excited to join forces with Ciklum and act as the friend and trusted adviser to CTOs, helping them figure out the best path to move to the cloud, select appropriate technologies, help them understand cost implications, and minimize risks”
