Our Services

Hybrid Cloud

We help clients design and deploy a hybrid cloud infrastructure for enterprise transactions, systems of records, and application workloads. We help deploy OpenStack-based cloud management services for IBM Z, LinuxONE, storage, and networking. We also provide services for z/OS Cloud provisioning and management with API-enabling technology such as z/OS Connect and z/OSMF. We provide services for integrating with cloud management platforms, such as VMWare vRealize Automation, IBM Cloud Management Appliance, and IBM Wave. We help clients scale and secure their IT infrastructure for mobile applications with their often very large and unpredictable transaction volumes via our Jumpstart services. We also provide the needed operating system, middleware, and support for security to provide a full end-to-end mobile solution.


We help clients with new transformational projects in the area of Blockchain through consultation and deployment of the infrastructure including security. Our technical consultants work hand-in-hand with our other IBM services colleagues to execute a full end-to-end solution for clients who want to use Blockchain for strategic use cases.
