SAGE SOLUTIONS CONSULTING AND BOXBOAT TECHNOLOGIES ANNOUNCE STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP by Sage Solutions

Washington, DC and JACKSONVILLE, FL— BoxBoat Technologies (BoxBoat), an enterprise container advisory and Docker implementation services company and Sage Solutions Consulting (Sage), a leading provider of IT Solutions with a strong practice in ERP security, identity management, governance risk and compliance (GRC), and Big Data Analytics today announced a new strategic partnership.

The partnership will combine BoxBoat’s expertise in containers, microservices and continuous delivery practices with Sage’s strong IT consulting practice to deliver end-to-end solutions targeted to streamline customer’s DevOps workflow and modernize their legacy applications.

Development and operations teams often find themselves in silos resulting in diminishing productivity and the slow down of software releases. Integrating Docker into your DevOps environment allows your dev teams to develop and test code more efficiently, and your ops team to ship code faster and more consistently. Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) dramatically improves the efficiency of building, testing, and deploying your applications to production while improving software quality and minimizing bugs. 

Combining CI/CD with containerization streamlines the creation of production-ready deployments and reduces project time and cost. Now, both Sage and BoxBoat’s customers can take full advantage of each company’s long history and successes in their respective areas of expertise. Customers should expect frictionless end-to-end service and efficient, streamlined solutions as a result of the partnership.

“Partnering with Sage Solutions Consulting allows BoxBoat to provide our clients with world-class IT solutions built from the ground up to ensure best practices and accelerated results,” said Tim Hohman, CEO, BoxBoat Technologies.  “With Sage’s commitment to success, choosing the best solution for the customer, as well as a great track record of successful implementations, we have no doubt that this partnership will provide dividends for all of our customers.”

“BoxBoat’s specialized Docker and container experience fit a requirement we see across our customer base to automate their development processes and migrate legacy applications off of expensive hardwaresaid Hugh Jetha, CEO, Sage Solutions Consulting. "Our partnership with BoxBoat will help our customers implement new DevOps workflows, reduce their application release cycles, and facilitate their adoption of more efficient hybrid infrastructure, resulting in cost savings both in the near and long term."
