Extraordinary Cloud Services Support for Software Teams

Praqma specializes in providing the skills, tools, and training to help organizations deliver better software faster. This is the value proposition in Continuous Delivery. Quite early in our practice, we found that we needed to look beyond development and test automation and into IT operations in order to succeed in our mission.

We were a traditional software-focused organization. We had servers, which we set up, but didn’t really maintain. We had IT, but in a half-hearted, manually configured way. Our infrastructure was moving to the cloud, our services needed to be maintained, backups needed to be tested, upgrades needed to be performed. It was becoming quite a job!

We knew there was a better way - it would take recruitment, training, investment and commitment. So we rolled up our sleeves, got our best people on it - and worked tirelessly to build a system the right way, from the ground up.

Now we are offering to do the same for our customers. We can bring our skills, our technology, and our training to help you evolve your IT infrastructure to the join the DevOps revolution.

We can be the Ops in your DevOps!

Praqma offers a tailored service to provide cloud services support for software development teams. Our combination of expert-level IT Automation professionals together with access to our technology stack will kickstart your cloud journey.
