The New Normal is Cloud
Leveraging the cloud today is no longer a brute force forklifting of applications but instead a thoughtful design towards cloud-native systems.
The objective of product development organizations is to take full advantage of resource elasticity, platform functionality and advanced security. Newer design patterns such as micro services and service lifecycle management lead to superior customer experiences. We see a number of market trends that are shaping the future of software on the cloud - legacy transition to software-as-a-service, improving velocity to shrink time-to-market, rise of digital/physical converged technologies and continuous delivery and testing model.
Our software frameworks and solutions help accelerate product realization. For example the Aricent Cloud Enabling Solution (ACES) is a software framework that automates the integration, testing and orchestration of infrastructure and platform-as-a-service. Aricent with its cloud focused capabilities, offerings and enabling software solutions is well positioned to cater to all requirements.
Aricent Cloud Engineering services help clients tackle the most challenging architecture, implementation and operations requirements for cloud-based applications, products and platforms on public, private and hybrid environments.
Aricent product lifecycle services spans design, engineering, test and operations. We help our clients adapt and keep pace with the changing industry landscape in solution architecture, application development and deployment, system infrastructure implementation and software engineering.
