Our client also recognized the benefits of Cloud and wanted to take full advantage of the AWS innovation and impact that it could deliver for their business. They wanted Centizen to internally relieve resources from the often-burdensome reality of the AWS infrastructure management.
Centizen provides their client with ongoing Cloud Core Managed Services with a 24/7 operational support service. Whatever path we head down, AWS would likely have a solution available to get us there. Also, AWS consistently adds new services and functionality while also reducing costs.
