Mission Cloud Announces the Launch of Mission Control, a First of Its Kind Cloud Services Platform
With a "Services as a Software" approach, Mission has integrated its proprietary automation and cloud management techniques with its extensive consulting expertise as an AWS Premier Tier Services Partner
By: Mission Cloud
Mission CEO Simon Anderson describes Mission Control as a strategic opportunity to draw on Mission's deep expertise as an established AWS Partner while addressing a growing need in the cloud services market. "When we started Mission five years ago, the market really thought that automation could solve every problem," Anderson says. "And they were halfway right. Automation has made it possible to make decisions and build businesses faster than ever before. But with AWS comes global scale minutes and over 200 core services. So there's also complexity. The future of handling that complexity is incredible automation and tools, solving problems as only machines can, but empowered by human ingenuity, creativity, and wisdom."
A cloud services platform is a new category of cloud platform technology, built to address that complexity by operating at the intersection of cloud management platforms, work management platforms, and managed service providers. By integrating functionality from all three of these solutions, Mission Control has been designed as "a place for collaboration and learning," not just data visualization or self-serve tooling, says Kris Bernard, VP of Digital Experience at Mission. "What this means practically is that for every insight, alert, or datapoint we visualize, you'll have access to an expert to help you understand what it means, why it matters, and how to act on it."
Today Mission Control launches with four major features to deliver these insights:
"There are hundreds of tools customers can buy to drive success on AWS," says Jonathan LaCour, Mission CTO. "But all of them have the same challenge: the output of the tools is useful, but there's nobody to interpret it for the customer."
