This included bringing them through Cloud Adoption Framework workshops, setting up Cloud Centers of Excellence, and aligning business goals to technology initiatives.

Throughout the years I have heard consistently from CIOs and CTOs that they need prescriptive solutions to solve their business challenges. Effectual brings those solutions to the enterprise and addresses a major gap in our industry by not only building and modernizing applications but also operating those applications in the cloud.
