What do our customers say?

I have now engaged with Strategic Blue in my last two CTO positions, both times we have made significant savings on our cloud hosting costs and moved from credit card charging to monthly invoices, all with very little effort.
Toby Young CTO
We tendered for a financial cloud broker, to help us set up multi-cloud procurement to support migration of an entire datacenter to the cloud. Strategic Blue delivered by far the strongest response, and have been great to work with.
Vince Kellen CIO
Strategic Blue brought tools and expertise, helping us understand our AWS usage. Then they brought finance, to allow us to lock-in great pricing for as much as 3 years, without having to tie up capital in prepayments to Amazon.
