Fortium Partners Joins Amazon AWS Partnership Network and Launches Cloud Adoption Framework for AWS

DALLAS, TX  January 7, 2015 / - FORTIUM PARTNERS, the world’s fastest growing provider of IT Turnaround and Leadership Services, today announced they are joining the AWS Partner Network (APN) as a consulting partner.  Concurrently, Fortium announced its “Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF)” solution for Amazon Web Services (AWS).  The CAF helps Fortium clients quickly determine how to optimize AWS usage and investment.

“Our experience is that the gap is often too wide between IT’s desired Cloud strategy and company Executives’ understanding of how much the Cloud has to offer,” said Brad Callahan, Managing Partner at Fortium. “The CAF for AWS provides collaborative business context to make decisions around maximizing the wealth of options available on AWS.”

The Fortium CAF for AWS helps clients rapidly, usually in a matter of weeks, identify, quantify, and document a strategy for getting the most out of its AWS investment. Working in tandem with AWS, Fortium helps ensure its clients’ awareness of the possible and the practical with AWS. Core to Fortium’s belief that clients can and should perform the bulk of their AWS-related migration and implementation tasks themselves, Fortium provides seasoned leaders to guide clients through the technical, organizational, and change-related tasks needed to be successfully self-sufficient on the AWS Cloud.

Tim McCracken, CEO and founder at Fortium, states, " Our firm’s deep commitment to helping our clients fully leverage Cloud services is further amplified by our work with AWS.  Helping our clients maximize their use of not only the world’s leading Cloud platform, but also taking advantage of AWS’ leadership in areas such as High Performance Computing (HPC,) Big Data, and the Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) will forever change our clients’ competitive landscapes.”
