Who we are

At Amido we specialise in implementing cloud-first solutions. We do this by building resilience at scale, flexibility for the future and differentiation of customer experience for our clients. And, we do this while minimising business-risk and build-cost.

We don’t reinvent the wheel – with a plethora of proven cloud services, we firmly believe that we can find the best solution from the rich PaaS and SaaS marketplace. The real magic is in understanding what our clients need, knowing what is out there and gluing these technologies together in the most effective way, building only what is needed.

We always encourage our customers to rent first, buy second and build and maintain as little as possible. Our list of successful projects is long. We have evolved as the market has evolved and we continue to adapt and learn, apply the best delivery techniques and work in close collaboration with our clients.
