Data Analytics in the Amazon Web Services Cloud

Data Analytics

Data is transforming organisations that understand how to leverage their data assets. Businesses have a desire to explore their data but moving away from existing approaches is daunting and has a significant impact on their businesses.

Managed Services in the AWS Cloud

Managed Services

Cloud services are creating opportunities for businesses to optimise their investment in compute assets. The days of planning for peak load and scrambling around to address equipment failure are truly numbered.

DevOps in the Amazon Web Services Cloud


DevOps is an approach, an organisational culture, that drives out efficiency and focuses on business outcomes. Underpinned by technology, process and most importantly people achieve the automation you seek.



TechConnect IT Solutions, an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner,

 provides architectural solutions and managed services to its customers

to ensure a cost optimised architecture that delivers

highly available, scalable and secure cloud architectures.

Our Vision is to:

Create an energetic work environment that builds and grows knowledge,

where we always strive to delight our customers and

never settle for ordinary.

  • CARE

    We show care to each other, to our stakeholders and in everything that we do. We are an innovative learning environment, where we openly share knowledge and assist each other. We work with integrity and always strive to put the customer first. We deliver beyond expectations, to delight.


    We innovate, we create, we do not blindly accept what’s considered ’normal’ or ‘average’. We strive to continually improve on all levels, and stay ahead of the competition wherever possible. We are not afraid to fail. When we do, we move on.


    We work with ambition, energy and drive. Our focus is on the good of our customers and of our business. Our success is their success. We’re not afraid to push the boundaries. We learn, we grow, we move on. We strive for new ways of doing things, we go beyond the call of duty.


    We focus on the customer at all times, we are pragmatic and we don’t overcomplicate things. We speak their language, we take their view. We have fun. We get it done.
