Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have a considerable advantage when compared to their more established competitors – leaner networks. The large network size of a large enterprise can make the decision-making process and migration to the cloud much more complicated. Enterprise applications will rely on a database, which may be decades old. Lifting and shifting this data to the cloud is no mean feat, especially when it comes to ensuring the integrity, validity and accessibility of data after migration.
SMEs are not subject to the same hurdles. Many startups are born and bred in the cloud, having a significant advantage over their more established competitors. They don’t need to deal with traditional applications and the incompatibilities they exhibit during migration. However, larger enterprises have an advantage in terms of the necessary skills and experience to develop in the cloud.
At Trianz, we understand that SMEs may lack the necessary skills and competencies required to configure and manage their AWS cloud properly. Larger enterprises attract more talent, giving them a natural advantage over SMEs. To bridge this gap, we offer a comprehensive AWS managed service. Our experts can take over a part, or entire network to ensure a smooth run of your IT operations.
According to Mordor Intelligence, the managed services market is expected to grow around ~11% year-on-year between 2020 and 2025. This highlights the demand for expertise and experience in the cloud, presumably from enterprises that lack this expertise.
We aim to cater to the specific needs of SMEs with our AWS managed services. There are three main points of contention when operating in the cloud, and our managed services meet those demands:
Security – Every enterprise needs to prioritize security. Without due attention, an SME could become a potential target of hackers who can extort their networks for personal gains. AWS comes with a wide range of platform-native security tools to bolster your defenses against any malicious entities.
We put security at the forefront of everything we do, both internally and for our clients. Our managed service is designed to leverage the best security paradigms on the market to give you the reassurance you need when operating in the cloud. You can find out more about cybersecurity and our managed services here.
Maintenance – When developing your digital services for the cloud, the complexity of management can quickly grow out of hand. An SME’s IT department will be much smaller than its larger competitor, which puts them at a slight disadvantage, as they will have only one or a few people to cater to the requirements compared to the larger enterprises, which have an entire department for the same task. If you risk overstretching these small, tight-knit teams, they could quickly become overloaded or lose focus, putting your network at risk.
We understand that SMEs may lack the necessary expertise or staff numbers to manage their AWS cloud effectively. We take a range of administrative roles through our managed service, largely negating the need for an in-house IT department.
Innovation – Following on from maintenance, a lack of expertise will prevent SMEs from innovating. This could be an internal innovation of their IT operations or developing new features for their customer-facing digital services. In the digital world, a lack of innovation can quickly lead to your business becoming uncompetitive and irrelevant in a sea of better options.
Our experts are well-versed in DevOps methodologies with a full understanding of the nooks and crannies on the AWS platform and can assist you in developing your digital services or upgrading your IT operations. As part of our AWS managed service, we will also keep your AWS VPC fully updated and ready to accommodate new software integrations.
SMEs are simultaneously set up for success and failure through the duality of their immaturity. This immaturity allows them to adopt new technologies faster, but also hinders their ability to implement them because of a lack of expertise. We understood this problem and introduced an AWS Managed Service built with SMEs in mind. You can leverage the experience and knowledge of our consultants to give you an edge over the competition.
Digital evolution should be simple. Our AWS managed service is designed with simplicity in mind. Make your move to AWS with the help of our experts by getting in touch today!

What Is an SQL Query Engine? SQL query engine architecture was designed to allow users to query a variety of data sources within a single query. While early SQL-based query engines such as Apache Hive allowed analysts to cut through the clutter of analytical data, they found running SQL analytics on multi-petabyte data warehouses to be a time-intensive process that was difficult to visualize and hard to scale.Explore

Engage Your Workforce with a Modern Employee Intranet Solution The employee intranet has changed significantly since it was first introduced in the early 1990s. What started as HTML-based static portals have now evolved into intuitive communication tools complete with search engines, user profiles, blogs, event planners, and more. Today, many organizations are taking a second look at employee intranets to bridge gaps between teams, build company culture, centralize information, increase productivity, and improve workflow.Explore
Adopting emerging cloud technologies, consolidating resources, and improving processes is the key. “IT no longer just supports corporate operations as it traditionally has but is fully participating in business value delivery. Not only does this shift IT from a back-office role to the front of business, but it also changes the source of funding from an overhead expense that is maintained, monitored, and sometimes cut, to the thing that drives revenue,” said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner.Explore
Deliver Powerful Insights Instantaneously with Federated Queries - No Matter Where Your Data Resides The concept of federated queries isn’t new. Facebook PrestoDB popularized the idea of distributed structured query language (SQL) query engines in 2013. Over the years, AWS, Google, Microsoft, and many others in the industry have accelerated the adoption of a distributed query engine model within their products. For example, AWS developed Amazon Athena on top of the Presto code base, while Google’s BigQuery is based on Cloud SQL.Explore
What is Unstructured Data? Almost 80% of the data that enterprises and organizations collect is unstructured - data without a set record format or structure. Unstructured data includes data such as emails, web pages, PDFs, documents, customer feedback, in-app reviews, social media, video files, audio files, and images.Explore
