As CIOs and their business clients grapple with issues of IT cost, legacy complexity, speed and agility, they are increasingly considering cloud technologies as a vehicle for change. Today, implementing new applications often requires a significant labor budget for designing, building and testing the technology platforms and architectures that will underlie the application, in addition to significant upfront infrastructure costs. Critical application development schedules are often severely constrained by infrastructure implementation timing, which can vary widely based on hardware, storage and network availability. It is not uncommon for a project to be put behind schedule due to these dependencies. SANS Solutions believes that cloud will become the primary platform and enabler for application development and management within three to five years.

SANS Solutions helps large organizations and industry segments design, build, market and deliver services that allow key stakeholders to easily access applications from virtually any location, promoting increased productivity and supporting core business functions. SANS Solutions works with you every step of the way to help clearly define requirements and assists in providing you with a custom cloud rather than one-size-fits-all.


SANS Solutions focuses on the use of cloud in two ways. First, we use cloud delivery platforms that allow you to build and maintain applications in the cloud. Second, we use cloud technologies as a delivery enabler to speed the development process. In each case, SANS Solutions teams are able to leverage methods, frameworks, solutions, delivery capabilities and alliance relationships that in combination provide them with a unique ability that facilitates the delivery of on-time, on-budget results. Platform as a service uses platforms such as Azure (from Microsoft), Google AppEngine for Business, , Vmforce , and Amazon Web Services to enable application development and deployment. In these scenarios the platform provides a set of application services, architecture services, management tools and virtualized deployment infrastructure for the development and delivery of the application. Cloud-enabled Systems Integration is focused on applying cloud solutions to improve our ability to manage and deliver ‘traditional’ SI projects.
