Migrating to the Cloud /

ISV Solutions

Application Innovation & Migration

The Microsoft Azure cloud allows ISVs to achieve more and gain competitive advantage in a growing and developing industry.

The term ISV was coined by the technology industry to describe Independent Software Vendors who develop, market and sell software that runs on third party software and hardware platforms.

SMART AIM (Application Innovation & Migration) by Spanish Point is an engagement model which accelerates the ISV journey to the cloud. It offers real benefits, from cost savings and operational improvements to a future-proof platform that allows you to quickly take advantage of the benefits of the cloud.

The SMART AIM library accelerates an ISVs adoption and use of IaC (Infrastructure as Code).

Amcs Customer Story

SMART AIM (Application Innovation & Migration) by Spanish Point is an engagement model which accelerates the ISV journey to the cloud. This is achieved by leveraging the best practices of IaC (Infrastructure as Code) and the SMART AIM Library.

Manually configuring the infrastructure for a cloud environment is time consuming and prone to errors. Infrastructure as Code is the configuration of cloud environments using scripts. Using an IaC approach reduces errors and costs and increases predictability. Our team of software developers have the experience and expertise to configure and deploy your cloud environment using our IaC skills and our SMART AIM Library.
