Our customer

Precia, a subsidiary of the Colombian Stock Exchange, provides regional valuation and management solutions for financial portfolios.

"Rackspace Technology has proven to be the partner that truly has the knowledge and support to handle the biggest issues. They know how cloud technology works and have the partnerships and expertise to make it a reality."

The obstacles they faced

Precia’s previous infrastructure presented challenges in its development and testing environments. Given the importance of agility in the financial services sector, this was causing a bottleneck when developing new products and services for its customers. By migrating to public cloud, Precia would have access to infrastructure that met current demands with the flexibility to scale easily in the future.

After an extensive review of its public cloud options, Precia chose Amazon Web Services (AWS) for its infrastructure and quick deployment capabilities. However, Precia soon realized that it needed a partner who could both get it to the cloud quickly then optimize its cloud solutions well into the future.
