Take a look at what our clients have said about Behind Every Cloud
"Behind Every Cloud have a unique model (in that they don’t charge the client for their services) and a really broad knowledge of vendor competencies in the UK market across a wide range of IT specialisations. They’ve successfully helped us find good vendors in a recent project and Ray Bricknell is a great leader in this space with a good team behind him.
Highly recommend checking them out if you need any impartial advice!"
“Having pre-emptively completed rigorous Due Diligence pre-qualification against more than 60 vendors during 25+ RFP processes in the past 5 years, BEC’s deep knowledge of the real world capabilities and constraints of Cloud Vendors operating in the UK Finance niche market is exemplary. We used BEC to critique our own internal research and risk assessments – and by confidently staying with our incumbent, we saved money and time”
"BEC have a unique model in that they don’t charge the client for their services and leverage a really broad knowledge of vendor competencies across a wide range of IT specialties. They’ve helped us find some great vendors for recent projects and working with Ray Bricknell and his team has been a pleasure. What continues to impress me is that despite introducing us to vendors several years ago, they have remained engaged with our programme delivery, have supported us when things have got choppy and have at times brokered difficult conversations that have helped to get things back on track."

The outsourcing has now been in place for 1 year and has resulted in significant cost savings for the business as well as a significant reduction in IT management headaches…”
“BEC provided Throgmorton with invaluable guidance to inform its IT outsourcing decision making processes. They really are experts in the field of IT Infrastructure for the London Investment and Asset Management niche, and their knowledge of the service providers in this market is excellent.”
“Being an FCA regulated business, it was essential for Bluestone to be sure that we selected the best solutions and vendors for our next big IT investment, the Cloud. BEC’s deep knowledge and their unique Clover Cloud Vendor Rating Report helped us to quickly and easily find the best vendors for our Cloud-based IaaS. They also put us in touch with some terrific vendors for DRaaS, VoIP, and MPLS. Their experience in the Financial Services field helped us to identify our key risks, and highlighted for us the importance of vendor diversity. Their unique “shared risk reward model” allowed Bluestone to gain access to excellent, market advice VERY cost effectively! I thoroughly recommend BEC to be the ‘TripAdvisor’ for your cloud journey!"
