eCloudvalley Demonstrates its Cloud Expertise at CIO Innovation Forum

eCloudvalley
eCloudvalley Digital Technology (ECV), AWS Premier Tier Services Partner, has assisted more than 450 Hong Kong enterprises in digital transformation since 2016. eCloudvalley participated in the 9th CIO Innovation Forum to share cloud consulting experience in helping customers integrate cloud services seamlessly.

This year's CIO Innovation Forum focused on how CIOs integrate internal and external resources to lead digital transformation in the context of information security. Going cloud represents a significant step forward in digital transformation. However, the increasingly complex IT environment burdens the Internal IT team. Many attendees expressed that lacking internal cloud professionals is a big headache. As a result, many enterprises have begun cooperating with the new generation of managed service providers (MSPs). With their expertise in the cloud, MSPs can provide customers with consulting services and a seamless cloud experience. Moreover, MSPs can further offer data analytics services to empower enterprises to unleash the potential of the cloud.

"eCloudvalley serves customers from financial insurance, transportation, and communications industries. The cloud environment is complex. To unleash the potential of the cloud, enterprises can rely on MSP for consulting services and advice on information security and cloud optimization. Take eCloudvalley as an example. Based on our abundant experience, we can provide customers with comprehensive cloud services, such as data analysis, information security, and DevOps. In addition, we lighten the IT maintenance burden for our customers, and thus enterprises can concentrate on their own business and create new business models."

Joe Kwok, Country Manager, Hong Kong at eCloudvalley Digital

Since 2016, eCloudvalley has audited AWS MSP on an annual basis. In April 2022, it was named AWS Services Partner of the Year in Hong Kong. Furthermore, Gartner named eCloudvalley to its 2022 Market Guide for Public Cloud Managed and Professional Services Providers (Asia/Pacific), and ChannelE2E named eCloudvalley to its Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs for 2022, ranking it sixth globally and first in Asia.
