The cloud market in New Zealand is booming and this has led to the entry of many players catering to varying niches within this segment. One such company is an Auckland-based start up called Consegna.
Founded in 2016, this company has made rapid strides within one year of its start. It is currently backed by AWS and is supported by a global team of cloud specialists.
It’s one of the few certified AWS consulting partners in New Zealand’s cloud space and is an Authorized Public Sector Partner. It offers a range of advisory services in the cloud market, data center migration, managed services and more for all businesses located within its country.
Specifically, it helps small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to migrate their data and applications to AWS, so that everyone can leverage the power of the most popular cloud services platform in the world. Besides SMEs, it also offers support and consultation to large corporations, government organizations and just about anyone else who want to move to the cloud. This company’s specialists take care of the entire journey, from early consultations to the actual migration, so every client makes an informed decisions throughout its cloud journey.
Consegna provides not just consulting service, but can also take care of the tooling required to prepare your organization to move to the cloud. Architecture, design, building, implementation are other things they work on.
Now that we have an idea of what Consegna is and what it does, let’s see how it can impact the New Zealand cloud market.
First off, New Zealand is one of the more stable economies in the Asia Pacific region with a mature market and a thriving economy. Given this environment, it’s no surprise that it has a growing cloud market too. In fact, Gartner predicts that by 2018, the cloud market in New Zealand would be worth around NZ$14.7 billion, thereby making it one of the fastest growing markets in the world. It’s annual rate is likely to be around 14.7 percent year-on-year.
This strong growth is backed by a solid support from the government. It’s policies and regulations making it easy for the corporate world to use Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), so that every company can leverage the many advantages like scalability and cost effectiveness that come with it.
New Zealand’s data centers are expected to grow by 18 percent and is expected to reach NZ$272 million by 2020. Many large IT organizations like IBM are already increasing their presence in this market, and they are aptly joined by smaller companies like Consegna.
An analysis of these growth numbers show that cloud management, security and consulting are likely to be the top growing segments, and Consgena has a firm footing in them. Also, the fact that it is backed by AWS and has accessed to a global team of cloud specialists means it’s in a right position to create a deep impact in New Zealand’s cloud market.
Overall, exciting times are ahead for Consegna and the cloud market as a whole.
