The demand for cloud services increased significantly in the past year as part of companies’ of their digital transformation. Recognizing that some organizations need extra help in this journey, software firm Stratpoint has been enabling these companies with digital and business solutions.
Cloud technology has helped businesses streamline their processes and create a virtual office, giving them the flexibility to operate their services anywhere at any time. And with the growing number of web-enabled devices in today’s work environment, access to data is also made even more available.
Stratpoint has helped Lockton Philippines Insurance & Reinsurance Brokers Inc., which started its cloud journey with migration to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform in 2020. Lockton realized the need for 24/7 access for its clients and through Stratpoint, it allowed the company to continue servicing customers amid restrictions.

The company leverages its expertise and experience with Filipino enterprises and Silicon Valley startups to design, develop, and manage software, cloud, data, and AI solutions, enabling companies to become agile, scalable, and competitive in the global market.

Stratpoint also helped Lockton implement their IT roadmap to scale, expecting more savings from cost efficiency due to AWS’ elasticity, scalability, and the OPEX subscription model.
