SAN JOSE, Calif. – Taos, an IBM Company, a leader in multi-cloud and DevOps services, today announced two new offerings designed to accelerate customers’ cloud adoption and secure their environments using modern agile delivery and management methodology. The key offerings launched today are:
Taos Cloud Advisory Services – A suite of outcome-driven strategic consulting services that enable customers to maximize opportunities presented by the public cloud while reducing implementation risks. The Taos Cloud Advisory Services suite rapidly develops a customized modernization strategy across infrastructure, applications, and data while reducing security risks and optimizing costs. Taos Cloud Advisory Services leverage the proven Taos Navigator Methodology that has successfully guided clients on their journey to digital transformation and cloud adoption.
The first advisory service in the suite is the Application Modernization Advisory Service, created to increase the adoption of containerized workloads by providing expert guidance tailored to customer needs. This strategic service offers a customized blueprint for applications that can be re-platformed through containerization and for monolithic applications that can be re-architected into a microservices architecture. The prescriptive and strategic roadmap from the advisory service reduces risks and accelerates a customer’s journey into a modernized and containerized application environment.
DevSecOps Now: Building on the success of the industry’s first DevOps Now™ subscription service, Taos today announced the availability of DevSecOps Now, which makes the Taos expertise in security and DevOps available through a simple and flexible monthly subscription service. Taos DevSecOps Now service is designed to eliminate security issues during development, which is far more cost-effective than retrofitting security into production solutions. As part of this subscription, Taos security consultants with a focus on DevOps principles work alongside customer teams to harden their security posture in an agile manner in hyperscaler environments. With this subscription service, customers have extreme flexibility in picking the right expertise and resources needed to help accelerate and automate security implementation in their environments.
