The Review
Feedback summary: 

The new infrastructure was critical to the continued success of the platform, and the changes ease operations. CloudSkope was concerned with end goals and made sure the new system worked appropriately. Their constant communication and interest made them trusted advisors.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I was the CEO of an oilfield technology company. We did automation and real-time data collection for the industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CloudSkope?

We needed to move our system from a single on-site server into the cloud. That included a full-scale review of the code, and ultimately a complete rebuild to modernize it.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

This started as a fairly standard project. By the time we finished, CloudSkope was a borderline management member. They helped us redesign the entire platform and helped with day-to-day management. They added a lot of functionality, updated the client-facing aspects of the platform, and were hugely helpful in moving the project forward.

The system was connected hardware on a remote physical location in West Texas. It recorded important real-time data, including line pressure, temperature, and anything happening within the oil wells we monitored. That information was relayed back to the owner and manager at regular intervals through a webpage. The old system was reaching the end of its useful life, and was no longer supported.

CloudSkope completely overhauled the system and brought it up to modern standards. They created a new operations dashboard and made the client interface look much more professional. We used AWS for the cloud-based system. The system couldn’t have any downtime, and we had to iron out all the kinks before we initiated the transition. They put in considerable time and effort to correct any bugs before we made the change. In the end, the upgrade was completely seamless and the client had constant access.

What is the team composition?

My primary point of contact was their CEO. Other than him, I interacted with four to six people, but the overall team size may have been much bigger. All of them were technology experts, but I’m not certain of all their roles.

How did you come to work with CloudSkope?

We were introduced through a recruiter. He thought CloudSkope would be a perfect solution for us, and he was right.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $50,000–$75,000 on the initial project. We were a small company, so it was a meaningful investment.

What is the status of this engagement?

The work started in December 2016. I left the company in April or May 2017, as we were wrapping up the initial project and moving into an ongoing engagement.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

This was critical infrastructure for us, but I wasn't with the company to witness the full impact of their work. The information I received from the remaining team sounded like the technology and operations ran smoother, and the internal team was pleased with the functionality and reliability of the new system.

How did CloudSkope perform from a project management standpoint?

They were very good project managers. We were in fairly constant communication with them through phone and email, and we occasionally met with them in person.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The biggest takeaway was their ability to really understand the business and financial aspects beyond just the technology. They’re the most globally-minded technology vendor I’ve worked with, and they took time to understand our needs. They were concerned with our end goals and made sure they built the platform appropriately.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Not really. Their CEO is a trusted partner, and I consider him a friend. They did a really great job, and I’m completely satisfied with the way the project worked out.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Leverage their CEO and make him one of your trusted advisors. Outline your technology needs, but also explain your ultimate goals. That’s where their real value lies; they will help you solve any issues you face.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Cloudskope’s expert services make it possible for the client to support various customers without the fear of attack. Their resilient business sense and strategic thinking capabilities are key strengths. Cloudskope works as a partner, displaying a friendly attitude and engaging work ethic.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of a software development company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Cloudskope?

One of the core components of being a software development firm in the era of GDPR and security compliance is having a sound security backbone. We needed a stable infrastructure and a cybersecurity plan that encouraged compliance.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Cloudskope helps with our overall security profile and policy. They search for potential threats and find areas in the system that could be better protected. Their team provides strategic thinking around security and works hand in hand with our customer engagement. They act as a virtual CISO, assisting with HIPAA compliance.

What is the team composition?

We worked directly with Dipan (CEO, Cloudskope) and his team.

How did you come to work with Cloudskope?

Cloudskope was referred through our network. I worked with them on another product and knew that their team had excellent business sense.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $25,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with Cloudskope in March 2017, and the services are ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We’ve worked with Cloudskope on and off for about a year and a half. It’s been fantastic. Dipan reviewed the security policy and helped us implement with our team. Our company has grown exponentially within the last two years. It wouldn’t be possible for our team to support customers without Cloudskope.

How did Cloudskope perform from a project management standpoint?

Dipan is engaged and knowledgeable. He’s a safe pair of hands and delightful to work with. Our project management relationship was quite strong. We communicated through phone, e-mail, and video.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Finding exceptional strategic thinkers at that level is hard. Cloudskope’s skilled expertise makes them a trustworthy asset. Their team exhibits strong integrity and business sense. Dipan is also laser-focused on his marketplace, which is an added benefit.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I wouldn’t highlight anything that they could’ve done differently. I’ve been pleased with our relationship over the last couple of years.

Any advice for potential customers?

Reach out to Dipan and share everything you can. He’s a fantastic resource to connect with.
