Your Cloud Consulting Partner

To transform your business, you need a partner. One who is intelligent and reliable. A partner with deep understanding, meaningful insights and an extensive range of technical capabilities. A partner who is incredibly detailed in their methods and who can integrate seamlessly with your team. With an unsurpassed track record of success for over 20 years and a bench of talented experts, Foghorn Consulting is that partner. What to expect working with us:

Superior Technical Team

We take pride in the success of our clients. By hiring technical talent who are experts in their fields and following the agile project management methodology we architect secure environments built to last.

Culture of Excellence

Our corporate culture is based on integrity. We value honesty and integrity in everything we do, respect for individual, innovation and achievement through effective collaboration, and passion for delivering the best possible results for you.​

Understanding your Needs

To start, we focus on the big picture of what your project needs to accomplish. You tell us your scenarios and together, we figure out the details… even when your specifications are fuzzy and your requirements are subject to change.

Working Together

We strive to ensure the right balance between eliciting your feedback and respecting your time. This way, you can be confident everyone is on the same page and contributing to the fullest.

We Handle Ambiguity

Many organizations have a clear vision of what they need, but lack the time to write comprehensive requirements documents. We understand how to work with incomplete or ambiguous requirements. Our rapid development methods assure effective, intuitive solutions no matter how complex or ambiguous the challenge.

Relationship of Trust

We earn your trust by listening to you, actively, and applying our expertise and experience to advance your best interests.​
