Founded in 2014 by Paul Cannon, Cloudland Technologies originated after years of business consulting. Paul had noticed many inefficiencies in the common practices of digital transformation. He believed, that there could be a better way to deliver value.
However, things didn’t always run smoothly. Coming from high-end consulting, Paul had a different vision for Cloudland which offered more generic services and quick implementation for a much lower price. But it didn’t bring the desired results and it wasn’t sustainable.
Paul was struggling to deliver his vision, and the company was falling short of obtaining true value. To stay afloat, Cloudland needed to change. Though consistent work and attending numerous workshops, we learned the following:
Clients need to focus on tactical issues first
Clients need to see the value quickly
Clients need to see their growth
Taking these into consideration turned Cloudland into what it is today. Instead of quick implementation, we started spending more time defining customers’ vision. We now take our time to map the technology implementation with the goals of the company. We empathize more with the company and also work with the end users to understand their needs. It helps us to address the pain points and better align with our clients’ unique needs. We apply structural changes not only to company processes but also to its culture.
Instead of quick-time gains, we started building plans for steady and gradual progress. Now, we don’t try to do everything at once, instead focus on issues that need immediate attention first. Then, we develop a road-map with long-term goals to ensure that there is a continuous value path.
Instead of general services, Cloudland now focuses on specific products and areas. It allows us to provide more targeted information and closely work with each client.
Over the years, Cloudland has helped clients in a variety of industries. From finance and pharmaceuticals to e-commerce and non-profit. We also care about our community and commit 1% of our revenue to it.
