The rising popularity of the internet, standardization of technology and emergence of web services has made cloud computing a cornerstone of business. The Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud takes performance, scalability and security of enterprises to the next level through its global footprint, depth of offerings, and ability to build and deploy applications on the cloud.
Most enterprises face challenges with how to develop, deploy, migrate, integrate and manage Microsoft workloads running on Windows Server hosted on AWS. Commonly, organizations are running Windows Server dependent enterprise applications like Exchange, SharePoint and SQL Server and are looking for ways to migrate these enterprise applications to the AWS cloud. Catapult Systems, a premier IT consulting firm, helps enterprises migrate their critical applications and Microsoft workloads to the cloud. “Our structured cloud-migration methodology, CloudScape, and Firm Foundation offerings help organizations create the best cloud technology that fits their organizational goals,” says David Fuess, CEO, Catapult Systems.
Catapult leverages their CloudScape framework to identify the organization’s key business objectives and map them to available cloud services. This rigorous framework creates a cloud-adoption roadmap for any cloud need, including disaster recovery, custom application modernization (micro-services and server-less architectures), enterprise application migration, DevOps automation, Mobility enablement and IoT.
Catapult’s Cloud Solution Architect Team uses the CloudScape framework to help customers gain maximum advantage from their cloud investment to create a modern data center. Catapult’s deep expertise in Microsoft technologies helps clients understand and map the best solution for their unique circumstance. “Our consulting team is cloud platform agnostic, providing an unbiased view of the best services available for the organization’s desired outcomes,” asserts Fuess.

Catapult’s specialized offerings, Cloud Firm Foundations, are based on their CloudScape philosophy and include multiple small solutions to simplify the creation of a company’s cloud vision for the most common cloud problems: Networking, Active Directory, Security, Disaster Recovery & Backup, Identity and Data Protection.
For a cost effective cloud development, Catapult offers Managed Services that go beyond basic monitoring and system patching to provide access to an expert IT team at a predictable monthly expenditure. “Our managed service solutions are centered on cloud delivery, digital business, collaboration, infrastructure and custom application development,” asserts Fuess. In addition, Catapult’s approach to application development provides rapid delivery of functionality and reduces cycle times to minimize project risks such as unpredictable cost and time to market, while maintaining high quality results.
Leveraging AWS, Catapult’s innovative solutions have assisted many organizations in successfully achieving their business goals to thrive in the global competitive market. For instance, a small startup company needed to move their SQL database to AWS and did not have the internal expertise to do the integration. Catapult moved the SQL database and also implemented an intranet using SharePoint Online, a web application platform in the Microsoft Office server suite, and integrated it with the rest of their AWS environment, improving employee collaboration and engagement 4x.
To take their success further, Catapult is continuing to unveil new innovative solutions to enable their customers to embrace cloud with ease and flexibility. The company aims to extend its services worldwide through its newly launched National Team and its expanded Managed Services Team. With the release of “Launch,” a cloud-based productivity platform, Catapult further aims to increase the efficiency of business by automating daily IT routines.
