Thoughtful Service Design

Designing an excellent service is more of an art than a science. It requires the knowledge and skill of people who have not only provided but also consumed Managed Services. Luckily for you, the Astute Business Solutions team has skilled professionals who have lived their lives on both sides of that equation and this means that they intimately know what works and doesn't work both for customers and service providers.

We've found that one size never fits all and that most of the world is actually a gradient of gray rather than a binary black and white. This makes for a good service design backed by rock-solid SLA's, one that takes into account the humanity of the process and individual need. 

Astute Business Solutions offers managed services tailored to Oracle Cloud, PeopleSoft, Ellucian Banner, Disaster Recovery, Oracle Database, many, and Non-Oracle Workloads.

Increasing Value with Managed Cloud Services 

Astute Business Solution's managed cloud services help increase the value you bring to your organization by moving contextual work to a more affordable source which allows your employees to contribute to the most important and visible projects of the organization.

Managed Service Advantages

  • Building a team with cloud competency takes time, application of a managed services team reduces your time to value.
  • You maintain greater control over your infrastructure and application environment by having a managed services team that reports directly to your line of business.
  • Managed Services are an excellent augmentation to an in-house team.
  • Organizations appreciate the transparency, planning, and rigor that Managed Services provide.
  • Predictable, recurring monthly costs.

Because the team providing you managed service has decades of experience working in the Oracle Cloud, you can have confidence that your team has "seen it before", and knows what is needed when questions arise.
