Why Sphaera?

The level of sophistication that is required to successfully complete migration projects is way more convoluted than the physical element we are talking about but that’s what constitutes success for customers.


The difference that Sphaera offers, and where we have seen tremendous success, is coming in  and talking to the customer early on about what they are doing from a business perspective. We take a more consultative approach: are you moving to the cloud, are you moving across town, are you downsizing, are you expanding? And really, our value proposition is helping our customers throughout their journey, safely, without downtime… production applications, development environments, and the whole nine yards.


What Sphaera really offers is trust and risk mitigation.”
