Who Is Stratum?
In most things, the hard part is getting started.
We started Stratum a little more than one year ago and were excited for many reasons. It was a chance for us to do things our way. It was a chance for us to build a community of professionals that want to bring the Cloud from the abstract to the real. It was our chance to leverage experience across 150 enterprise Cloud deployments and build a company the way we wanted.
We’ve spent the last year focusing on servicing our clients throughout their Cloud journey. We want to continue those services and bring them to the next phase: building a community that embraces IT Transformation. That’s why the things we will post about, whether architecture patterns, the latest DevOps tools, or ITSM alignment, help define what the next generation of IT looks like. Our founders cut their teeth on cutting edge technologies in the mid-1990’s, lived through the dot-com Boom and Bust, and worked through the largest global recession since the 1930’s. From it all, we built a business model that focuses on customers and their experiences first, and demands uncompromising quality.
In this blog, we’re going to write about the things that help define our service catalog. They make us unique. Want to talk about server-less computing capabilities like AWS Lambda? So do we. Leveraging Open Source Software on Azure? We do too. Petabyte-scale database optimizations? If you find the dataset, we’ll write about optimizing it. Containers? Which ones – software or data center? The latest DevOps tools or Practices? Yep, we use them and follow them. These tools, technologies, and practices lead the way in IT today.
There’s so many exciting things out there, we wish there were a daily post just about all the exciting new technologies. While we admit that it won’t be that regular or that focused, Stratum will post timely material on relevant tools, technologies, and methodologies. The posts will come from real technologists, people that practice in the real world. The posts will not focus on selling because we hope that by sharing our knowledge you find value in our services.
So, where to from here? Follow this space for some upcoming blog posts about how Stratum helps deliver IT Transformation. It’s what we say to every customer, and how we live every day.
