The Silicon Review
It was back in the 1960s when an intergalactic computer network was first suggested and cloud computing was introduced to the world, and over the course of the past decade, it has completely transformed the industry.
The industry pundits have always predicted that someday cloud computing would definitely invade each and every vertical and the day has come, and it’s creating significant changes. To eliminate the basic IT headache of maintaining and updating systems and applications, enterprises today have started to depend on cloud computing applications; from creating a single document to storing gigabytes of data, enterprises rely on cloud applications.
To accelerate the digital agenda of enterprises for better business outcomes, Trianz is providing the strategic direction and tactical approach towards cloud adoption across public, private, and hybrid environments.
The Story So Far
It all started in 2001 in a small office in Silicon Valley when an ingenious mind, Sri Manchala founded Trianz, Inc. and opened its doors for business. What it may have lacked in square footage, however, it more than made up for in Manchala’s vision, sheer determination to succeed, and eye-to-the-future wisdom in developing constructive relationships, both with like-minded professionals and other forward-thinking organizations. His foresight in developing cloud-centric consulting services with talented colleagues, who would go on to join and help lead Trianz, and the company’s collaborative partnerships with firms like Microsoft, would eventually propel the firm into its current state as a 1500-associates strong, leading digital transformation organization.
Over the years, Trianz with its world-class work has proved its worth in the industry. It continues to attract top cloud, analytics, digital, infrastructure, and security specialists who are driving much of Trianz’ current work in helping businesses formulate and executes more effective operational strategies. And as a result of the cumulative efforts, enterprises today are achieving significant positive business outcomes. Over the past two years, Trianz’ exceptional client satisfaction scores in recent surveys indicate that the firm has helped businesses to rapidly improve and thrive—gaining ROI along the way— by transitioning to scalable cloud platforms that don’t require large equipment expenditures, can assimilate into existing architectures, and incorporate robust data analytics programs to measurably improve marketing, sales, and operational goals.
Also, Trianz was one of first firms to recognize that Microsoft Azure solutions provide more advanced, secure frameworks to support networking, database access, sophisticated applications, and analytics processes with increased flexibility, scalability, and reliability, among other benefits. As one of Microsoft’s fastest growing Managed Solutions partners, Trianz is garnering a well-deserved reputation among industry experts for its relentless pursuit of excellence. Shaping the company expertise around the services to better support its customers’ long-term goals, Trianz is a leading Microsoft Azure Solutions expert in the Azure Infrastructure Migration and Cloud Services domain today.
At Trianz, the in-house champion of Microsoft Solutions is Ira Horowitz, who has been instrumental in developing, growing, and leading Trianz’ Azure Managed Services Practice over the years. Now, as Vice President of New Client Relationships and Alliances, Horowitz combines a get-it-done leadership style with an engaging, positive demeanor that promotes collaborative work among the staff toward guiding clients on the most appropriate Azure solutions for their businesses. Having helped Trianz develop its current Azure services portfolio, Horowitz stresses Microsoft Azure as one of the largest suppliers of cloud-based SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS frameworks. Also, it has a reputation for being more nuanced with its products and approach, which in turn, adds some complexity to the digital transformation of existing legacy business operations.
“Our successful track record in Azure Managed Service relies on our resolute adherence to the due diligence necessary in evaluating customers’ existing processes, applications, and data analytics, among other operational activities,” says Ira Horowitz. “This approach is critical in minimizing surprises and avoiding expensive re-engineering while providing a holistic solution that lives up to expectations and offers continuous long-term gains.”
Overcome Business Challenges: Trianz’ Azure Infrastructure Migration Services
Trianz has recognized for some time that digitalization is ramping up an already tough competitive atmosphere for most businesses, especially from a global perspective. To put it simply, running a successful business means flipping the script on business processes and turning to digitalization to become more informed, more flexible, and more marketable. Trianz’ expertise in Azure Migration services helps enterprises to explore every avenue to get and remain ahead of the competition.
Trianz doesn’t just use Azure as a pass-through technology to strengthen an existing infrastructure or enable an infrastructure migration. Rather, it believes in using Azure to its full potential, augmenting Azure infrastructure migrations with innovative, scalable business processes that take advantage of Azure’s sophisticated migration, app development, compliance, and security toolsets.
Guided by the three tenets of digital transformation: Agility, Customer Centricity, and Data, Trianz uses a ‘business needs come first’ approach to empower Azure migrations.
When discussing Azure infrastructure migration services with potential clients, Horowitz and his team make sure that the organizations get a clear picture that modernizing and streamlining on-premises infrastructure to move critical workloads to the cloud still leaves some key challenges unanswered. These include lack of scalability, limited data availability, and ongoing issues with reliable backup storage, secure data access, robust disaster recovery, and redundancy. And the answer to all these challenges is Trianz that focuses on helping clients:

Optimizing the inherent capacity of Microsoft Azure, Trianz offers scalable, on-demand levels of processing power needed to solve the pain points.
