How the Partnership Unfolded

HGS Digital, formerly known as Element Solutions, has been partnering with Amazon Web Services since 2008. At that time, we started to see a rise in the number of clients wanting innovative improvements to their IT environments, and we answered with a cloud-based solution. Our initial cloud practice spun up around providing hosting services for our joint Oracle clients surrounding several Oracle middleware solutions including WebCenter Content, WebCenter Portal, and Oracle WebCenter Sites (formerly FatWire). We had been implementing Oracle WebCenter Sites since 2003 when it was owned by FatWire.

In addition to helping clients with implementation services for Oracle solutions, we leveraged Amazon EC2 instances for IaaS to host the workloads. We were among the first to offer a hosted option for these solutions which gave us a real edge over our competition, bolstered the success of our cloud business, and strengthened our partnership with both Oracle and AWS.

HGS Digital also offers migration services and fully managed service options to better serve the needs of our clients at both the application and infrastructure level. As these solutions gained momentum, our clients began to see the value of Amazon EC2 instances for a cloud solution paired with our managed services. We started winning additional workloads beyond just WebCenter Sites, spurring the growth of our overall cloud business.

Driving Value for Our Clients

HGS Digital's solutions for Oracle middleware are built for cloud and deployed on EC2 instances on the AWS cloud infrastructure. This enables our clients to take advantage of substantial reductions in their total cost of ownership and shift their capital expenses to operating expenses. The use of this fully managed, cloud-based solution frees their IT resources to drive other business innovation and value. Our clients can take advantage of HGS Digital’s implementation services, migration services, managed services, and IaaS (hosting) with 24/7 monitoring service—with a single source for contracting and support. HGS Digital can help them meet all of their needs with reduced cycles and improved speed to deployment, backed by the AWS guarantee of 99.99% uptime.

By teaming our 15 years of partnership implementing Oracle middleware with a 10-year partnership with Amazon Web Services, HGS Digital has built a solid cloud practice. These partnerships, in conjunction with HGS Digital’s expertise in networking, systems engineering, and professional services, have helped our clients drive IT innovation. This all began with our decision to leverage Amazon Web Services as a cloud service provider partner. We continue to expand this alignment with AWS and are pleased to have achieved the AWS Advanced Consulting Partner status.
