We noticed that there were limited options in the market available to businesses who didn’t have the ‘in-house’ AWS, Azure or Google Cloud capabilities, often leaving you with two decision to make in order to complete projects.
Finding multiple experts, training them, retaining them, costing time and money.
Paying consultancies day-rates to complete projects, or relinquishing control to “managed service” providers
Hearing horror stories of wasting time, money, or both from companies trying out both of these options, we decided that there needed to be another option, co-delivery.
Co-delivery is the mentality that when you start a project and asses that you are not able to do it by yourselves, you will be heavily dependent on external sources and focused solely on delivery. Nonetheless, as time goes on, co-delivery aims to enable businesses to become more independent, allowing them to focus on innovation and real transformation.
There are limited options for businesses short of internal cloud expertise. You either build a team internally or buy one. Even then, there’s no guarantee that you’ll adopt cloud successfully. Co-delivery however combines the two options, allowing you to quickly realise the benefits of cloud whilst simultaneously training and developing your in house teams.
What’s upskilling? Consultancy day rates are expensive so why not bring in external expertise who can teach your team how to handle the platforms themselves? As the old adage goes, “feed a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day but teach him to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime”. There’s also no point in a consultant finishing a project if nobody is capable of maintaining it.
Of course, we can help you with all of the above. All you need to do is speak to a member of the team today.

We help you get trained engineers of your own without having to hire. By investing in the collective knowledge of your team, you won’t only ensure adoption but a more talented workforce. The same is true of legacy systems.
If you’re struggling to optimise the solution you use now, what better way to prevent it from happening again by co-delivering something that works?
