Best Practices for Cloud Infrastructure Automation

Technical Leadership for Successful Cloud Projects

Technical leadership can only be exercised effectively with real hands-on experience.  At Awarala we have been applying engineering standards and best practices for building software, SaaS, and Cloud infrastructure for some of the world's biggest companies for over two decades. 

Stakeholders from technical teams to executives have different needs and company responsibilities that require access to someone with a dual profile that can understand business needs/challenges and also technical options and constraints

A technical leader has to explain technical ideas to executives and non-technical audiences and communicate business needs and requirements to technical audiences, effective communication skills adapted to each audience are needed to inspire collaboration and gain full support from all the stakeholders.

  • Leadership and management of technical teams.
  • Organization of company resources (human and technical) to transition from on-premises to Cloud.
  • Design and development of SaaS offerings.

The most important factor for success is the Capability and willingness of the company's resources to embrace change and adapt to new technologies and procedures, securing their support and providing adequate training is needed for any transformation to succeed.
