Navigating Multi Cloud: Looking for AWS and Azure Consultants

When you take a multi-cloud approach you can end up with a supplier for each cloud provider. Is it possible to find one supplier with both AWS and Azure consultants?


Both platforms offer a wide range of services and capabilities. Therefore, it makes sense to remove a reliance on one platform. However, the challenge arises when companies require expertise in both AWS and Azure, a combination that has proven to be quite elusive.

In this blog post, we'll explore the reasons behind the scarcity of consultants skilled in both platforms and introduce a partner that addresses this challenge.

The Dual-Platform Dilemma

AWS and Azure are distinct cloud platforms. They are different enough that an expert in one would need to do some work to get to know the other. This is on top of the time they have spent becoming an expert in one, which is no mean feat.  As a result, the pool of consultants who possess expertise in both AWS and Azure is quite limited.

What you usually find is that a partner provides either AWS consultants or Azure consultants but not both.

One reason for this specialisation is the complexity of each platform. AWS and Azure have their own unique architectures, terminology, and deployment models. Mastering both requires a deep understanding of the intricacies of each platform, making it a daunting task for even the most skilled professionals. Moreover, cloud technologies are constantly evolving, necessitating ongoing learning and adaptation, which can be challenging when juggling two major platforms.

The Scarcity of Dual-Platform Experts

The scarcity of consultants skilled in both AWS and Azure has led to a competitive market where organisations often struggle to find the right partners to guide them in their cloud journey. Many consulting firms and individual experts tend to focus exclusively on one platform, which can leave companies in a bind when they require multi-cloud solutions or seamless integration between AWS and Azure.

Companies seeking dual-platform expertise are often faced with a tough decision: Do they hire separate consultants for each platform, potentially leading to coordination challenges and compatibility issues, or do they settle for an expert in one platform, compromising on the comprehensive guidance they truly need?
