We’ve built an objective practice with more than 50 unique industry certifications to ensure our customers can accelerate their transformation journey,” said Jason Carolan, Flexential Chief Innovation Officer. “The investment in Flexential Professional Services allows us to provide comprehensive solutions that span multiple technical footprints.”
Building on the division’s 20-year history of delivering infrastructure, IT resiliency and cybersecurity consulting services, Flexential’s expanded professional services provide agnostic full design, implementation and configuration support for both the customer’s Flexential footprint and their interconnected, hyperscale cloud platforms including: Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, or Microsoft Azure.
