SAINT LOUIS (June 30, 2020) – Perficient, Inc. (Nasdaq: PRFT) (“Perficient”), a leading global digital consultancy transforming the world’s largest enterprises and biggest brands, today announced that it has been named a Google Cloud Premier Partner for demonstrating a deep level of technical proficiency, expertise, and customer impact with Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This designation represents the highest status a Google Cloud partner can achieve.
Perficient’s Premier Partner status is the result of shared investment in technical enablement, certifications, sales, and marketing initiatives by both Perficient and Google Cloud, in addition to Perficient’s experience delivering quality solutions on behalf of customers using GCP. As a Premier Partner, Perficient will continue collaborating with Google Cloud on a go-to-market strategy, incorporating management consulting, cloud migration, application development, and other Google Cloud resources to help customers transform their business.
“We’re proud to achieve this Premier Partner status following several years of collaboration with Google Cloud. This achievement emphasizes our commitment to deepening our relationship, expanding our knowledge base, and delivering that expertise through innovative solutions for our clients,” said Hari Madamalla, vice president, Perficient. “With our Premier Partner status, we’re eager to continue deploying the scalable and secure infrastructure GCP offers to maximize our clients’ operational efficiencies and cost savings.”
Perficient’s Tailored GCP Migration Strategy Leads to 30% Cost Savings for Healthcare Company
In addition to becoming a Premier Partner, Perficient is now a Google Cloud Healthcare and Life Sciences Expertise Partner, indicating strong experience with GCP, and demonstrated customer success in the healthcare/life sciences market.
Many modern healthcare companies are increasing their cloud investment to support data security, unify disparate systems, and reduce costs. Outfitted with a costly cloud platform with limited customization options, a San Francisco-based healthcare company partnered with Perficient to create a strategy for migrating their legacy cloud platform to a GCP solution that incorporated application containerization.
Following in-depth roadmap strategy sessions, Perficient created an extensive plan for migrating and analyzing the healthcare company’s tremendous amounts of data. Perficient then executed infrastructure automation and database migration efforts using Kubernetes to establish the design, management, and governance elements required for application containerization. Following the successful migration, the healthcare company realized a 30 percent reduction in associated spending and increased the flexibility and customization options of its IT infrastructure.
Perficient combines the power of Google Cloud technology with strategy and delivery expertise to help solve critical business challenges.
