Someone asked me today “what makes Expert Thinking different?” It’s a good question! And, it’s a question I ask myself every day. Why should an organisation choose Expert Thinking over the many other cloud consultancies in the market today? Why should you put your trust in us?
#1 It’s not just about the tech! We believe that success rests as much (if not more) in the people and process as it does in the technology itself. A highly skilled team could use old technology to achieve great things but a poorly skilled team would achieve very little even with the latest cutting edge technology. Therefore, it stands to reason that if you bring together a highly skilled team with the right technology the sky is the limit.
#2 Appropriate, not over-engineered! The words pragmatic and appropriate underpin everything we do. We believe in right for now, extensible for tomorrow. We don’t believe in over-engineering the solution. Often the 80% of benefit is enough, and the time, effort and cost to achieve the last 20%… well… often the “juice isn’t worth the squeeze.”
It’s important not get carried away. Instead, use technology in a way that best suits your business now, implementing it in a way that is scalable and extensible so to support your business in the future, as it grows, as it evolves.
#3 We’ve done it! We can demonstrate – really demonstrate – capability through delivery as individuals and as a company over many years. We’ve many examples successfully delivering full-stack end-to-end cloud solutions on Azure and AWS in a variety of industries – banks, insurers, retail, pharmaceuticals, etc.
There are many reasons we’re different but, ultimately, we believe it’s down to the people. John Shortt and I started Expert Thinking to be able to live our core beliefs and principles – the sames beliefs and principles that had been constantly compromised throughout our careers.
Expert Thinking is a specialist technology consultancy. We’re not big. We’re specialist. Our mission is simple; to use our knowledge and expertise to help optimise our clients’ use of cloud, maximising benefit, minimising cost, at all times providing best advice and expertise to support our clients’ success.
Our team are experts in their field. And our goal is to enable our clients, not “own” the solution. In other words, we are here to help you implement the right technology in the right way and enable your team to own the solution moving forward.
