OUR APPROACH

Why CBTS?

Moving to the Cloud requires a handful of mission-critical decisions, dozens of other important choices, and hundreds of supporting activities to advance your business goals.

A thorough cloud assessment by CBTS will help you make intelligent choices on public cloud options from providers like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. Our team will also outline the advantages of private, public, and hybrid cloud configurations. The assessment provides a framework for successfully implementing cloud technologies and services. We also ensure you understand the financial impact of shifting to the Cloud.

Assess

Understand your current environment topology and the existing workload dynamics. Document and assess which are ideal for the public cloud.

Design

Our certified experts make recommendations and design the most cost-effective and efficient cloud environment, including application refactoring.

 

Migrate

CBTS engineers and architects will transform your existing applications and infrastructure to be migrated securely and efficiently to the Cloud.

Manage

CBTS manages your cloud environment, allowing your developers and operations teams to focus on driving new capabilities and innovation.

The most sophisticated and future-proof cloud environment will only benefit your organization if it is kept safe from scams, phishing, and other intrusions. That’s why it’s critical to seek a global support services provider that weaves security into every layer of your cloud transition and maintenance process while creating a sustainable shared risk model that limits liability for your enterprise.

“Creating a successful roadmap to the Cloud starts with understanding where you are today and what your topology looks like. Not all clouds are created equal and not all workloads are designed to run optimally on any platform. CBTS can help guide you on that transformational journey and get it right the first time.”

– Chris Munoz, Vice President – Technology Infrastructure and Cloud Operations

A leading, family-owned greenhouse producer in business for over 60 years and one of North America’s largest greenhouse vegetable companies. 

Problem
This greenhouse produce company partnered with a small technology service provider and recognized they needed more help to keep up with growth. The client required a team with more flexibility, better responsiveness, and the breadth of capabilities to meet the demands of their ever-expanding market. 

CBTS solution
The CBTS team listened to the client’s business challenges and presented a plan based on the client’s requests. Additionally, the team introduced the greenhouse producer to CBTS security, communications, and professional services the client had yet to consider. The client recognized that CBTS had the value and expertise to be a trusted partner for all their information technology needs. CBTS presented a plan that included:
• A private, dedicated cloud in a CBTS data center facility.
• Managed offsite data backup.
• Secondary mirrored site for managed disaster recovery.
• Network terminal services.
• Full security information and event management (SIEM) solutions.

Outcome
From consulting through implementation to ongoing optimization, CBTS managed the transition from a legacy model to a new, efficient, cloud-enabled solution that helped the company achieve its business goals.

Deepwater Industries Federal Credit Union serves 9,000 members working for more than 125 companies and organizations near the community along the Delaware River in western New Jersey.

Problem
The company needed a single, end-to-end IT provider to implement, manage, and monitor its systems.

CBTS solution
• Migrated IT operations to a secure CBTS cloud environment, including their core processing application running on IBM Power Systems.
• Offsite data backed up to a secondary location to address regulatory requirements.
• Implemented active directory to improve security, data protection, and compliance.
• Enterprise-class backups and antivirus strengthened security posture.
• Network and firewalls provided and managed by CBTS at the data center and branch locations.

Outcome
Deepwater’s IT staff isn’t tied up patching infrastructure software and managing hardware. Built-in security and compliance solutions address regulatory standards and requirements for protecting data. Switching from CapEx to OpEx reduces costs and gives the credit union a predictable monthly fee. Now, it’s easier for Deepwater to expand into new markets and enroll new members. 

“We’ve worked on implementations of a lot of different services in three years, and this one with CBTS was by far the most professionally done. The project manager was right there on top of things every step of the way and was a great resource throughout.”

Ida Bowen, CEO and President, Deepwater Industries Federal Credit Union
