To succeed at IT transformation, there are a few things to keep in mind.
First, many of the disciplines are the same, but teams need to learn to do them with code. This requires learning new skills, adopting tools and processes that may seem foreign at first, but are well aligned with the historical mission of an operations team.
Second, it’s a proactive approach to supporting the innovation of an organization. A modern operations environment is easy for developers to consume and fits within their process. This reduces the last-minute changes and costly adaptations needed to support a new application – even those that get “thrown over the wall.”
The result enables a future-ready business is one that can evolve and thrive in any situation, especially unexpected and impactful events. Future readiness is based on agility, resilience, standardization, and leveraging technology tools to develop capabilities that address organizations’ needs based on market and customer demand changes.

Cloud is not a place. Cloud is a set of disciplines™ is more than just a tagline for Evolving Solutions; it is how their teams work.
Evolving Solutions starts with the belief that Hybrid Cloud environments enable modern operations. A hybrid cloud is a combination of a private cloud (on-premises data center) and public cloud instances that allows data and applications to be shared between them. It offers the benefits of leveraging existing technology assets and investments while also incorporating additional capabilities from public cloud providers or as-a-service vendors. This cloud model provides the ability to scale capacity up or down to handle business demands for with the security, flexibility, resilience, and cost-efficiency businesses require to survive, compete, and grow.
According to Gmach, the last few years have taught us that disruption is the norm, and the pace of change is on a continuous cycle of acceleration.
