Cloud & Services
Empower your data in the Cloud
Deploy and operate your projects and applications in a secure and highly scalable infrastructure.
With Google Cloud Platform you can store, protect and control your datasets. You can also benefit from its charge method of just paying for the services you use, no additional or upfront costs.
Migrate to the Cloud with full support and start building your apps in a cloud-native environment.
Unlock the power of your data
Snowdrop has an experienced Professional Services team who can deliver some or all of your application requirements. The professional services go beyond our regular Customer Care, often working deep into the nature of an application and how to get the best out of it.
This may be in the areas of user interface, flow through toward an application objective, API selection and sequencing, deployment and scaling options, delivery of the business model. While we are uniquely focused on location, we also get to work in other application areas too.
Feel free to contact us to work through your requirements and learn more about our engagement model.
Billing & Reporting
We help you understand your data
Snowdrop routinely collects and analyses API usage data, and we can return insights into that data to inform ongoing operations.
We store all API related data from not only Google but our own systems, and offer views into that data along with recommendations and analysis.
The generation of usage reports that help individual responsibility centres to better visualise and manage their own application areas is a fundamental part of this – we can set up at the outset to focus on granular cost control or assist in moving to this model over time in the least disruptive way.
Cloud and Maps usage and reporting
Combined in one place
Where our customers consume many APIs, such as those from the Google Cloud or Maps platforms, we can consolidate the charging for individual responsibility centres and drive cost and usage information across all services consumed. Snowdrop also regularly runs ‘Early Warning’ reporting to help our customers to identify anomalies in usage or the identification of unexpected cost events. This use of information has saved our customers from cost overrun while giving re-assurance that the usage of any cloud capabilities can be seen and acted upon really quickly.
