Cloud computing is shared pools of configurable computer system resources and higher-level services that can be rapidly provisioned with minimal management effort, often over the Internet. Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale, similar to a public utility.


Taking a technology & vendor agnostic perspective, Pacific Fintech Development Foundation(PFD) provides Cloud Managed services that ensure fully cloud hosted end-to-end solutions running optimally at the lowest cost.

PFD cloud managed services enable organizations to focus on their core businesses instead of expending resources on computer infrastructure and maintenance. Advocates note that cloud computing allows companies to avoid or minimize up-front IT infrastructure costs. Proponents also claim that cloud computing allows enterprises to get their applications up and running faster, with improved manageability and less maintenance, and that it enables IT teams to more rapidly adjust resources to meet fluctuating and unpredictable demand. Cloud providers typically use a “pay-as-you-go” model.

Cloud Technologies We Work With

Microsoft Azure Cloud


Microsoft Azure as cloud platforms become the infrastructure of business, a flexible and scalable infrastructure technology is a prerequisite to support growth. Microsoft Azure – the global, trusted, hybrid platform for enterprises – provides the components you need to implement your Big Data solutions in the cloud. PFD unlocks the benefits of Azure’s data science, data engineering, Internet of Things (IoT), and analytics solutions for your enterprise to enable unprecedented efficiencies and outcomes, so you can go from merely observing data answers to having data answer your most pressing business questions.


Microsoft Azure’s integrated cloud services with built-in automation reduce infrastructure cost and complexity while freeing you to reach new markets and focus on core competencies. Azure leverages Microsoft’s existing install base to seamlessly integrate with on-site products that IT departments already have come rely on for a couple of decades.


Most importantly, Azure offers the intelligence and commitment-to-enterprise of the Microsoft brand that stands for global usability, stability, and security. Azure technologies render companies more agile, responsive, and competitive so that each can realize its potential. Deploying Azure technologies requires a differentiated cloud-first strategy that supports your technology roadmap and suits your specific use cases. That’s what PFD delivers.

IBM Bluemix Cloud


Cognitive computing is pushing the boundaries of enterprise intelligence. It is artificial intelligence geared at augmenting human intelligence, and it’s paving the way to the next round of possibilities for business. IBM Bluemix Cloud and its cognitive computing platform IBM Watson provide access to the widest range of cognitive technologies available today to quickly and securely build cognitive applications. PFD, IBM partner and direct vendor, is actualizing IBM Watson’s possibilities for forward-thinking companies who want to gain an early lead in the cognitive computing revolution.


IBM Bluemix is a modular set of cloud infrastructure services that make business more fluid, nimble, integrated – more intelligent. The Bluemix cloud computing platform isn’t just about creating or migrating apps, On-premise or off-premise implementations, or IaaS and PaaS cloud services. It brings these aspects together to solve business problems in the cloud. What was once siloed is now seamless.


Undoubtedly, IBM Bluemix offers the intelligence of IBM, one of the world’s most recognizable brands, known for innovation and trust. Discover Bluemix’s cognitive functionalities with PFD’s help to launch your firm into the future – before your competitors get there.


PFD’s Data Science Services on IBM Bluemix and Watson


PFD specializes in Watson on Bluemix, the first cognitive computing platform designed to support the development of a broad range of enterprise solutions. Watson transforms – through cloud mobility, automation efficiency, and cognition power – fundamental business givens.


IBM Watson services enable cognitive computing features using Watson’s Language, Vision, Speech and Data APIs. IBM Watson learns from experience and instruction. It combines natural language processing, machine learning, and real-time computing power to sift through massive amounts of unstructured data. Sectors benefiting include finance, insurance, banking, pharma, manufacturing, retail and oil & gas. PFD eliminates Watson adoption hurdles, such as lack of:


  • Understanding of how to implement Watson services
  • Resources to adopt cognitive services reliably and cost-efficiently
  • Knowledge of how these exotic technologies stack up for business goals
  • Realization of these technologies’ full impact on your business


We power your firm with Watson Developer Cloud components that together unlock data potential.

AlchemyLanguage on IBM Watson


AlchemyLanguage is Watson’s natural language processing service for advanced text analysis. We take it beyond pre-trained features to create a model customized to use cases such as:


  • Understanding the causes behind negative and positive reviews
  • Tracking key industry events such as acquisitions and new competitors
  • Tailoring recommended content and ads to content on the page



Conversation on IBM Watson


Watson Conversation enables applications that understand natural-language input and use machine learning to respond to customers in a way that simulates human conversation. Users interact with your application through your user interface: chat window, mobile app, or robot with a voice interface. Watson Conversation supports a growing number of languages and can be used to:


  • Answer questions
  • Open tickets
  • Update account information
  • Place orders


Engage our expertise to develop a Watson Conversation solution that meets your communication needs. When your customers ask and data answers, that’s PFD putting Conversation to work for you.


Other Watson Developer Components We Deploy


  • Document Conversion converts various types of documents – HTML, PDF, and Microsoft™ Word documents – into formats that can be understood by Watson services, such as Retrieve and Rank.
  • Retrieve and Rank enhances information retrieval, from massive collections of documents, using a combination of search and machine learning, and can be programmed to improve results.
  • Language Translator can be customized based on your unique terminology or language and trained to provide better translation accuracy – use it to present news from across the globe in your language or communicate with customers in their language.
  • Natural Language Classifier understands the intent behind text and returns a corresponding classification with a confidence score – use it to answer questions in a contact center, create chatbots, categorize volumes of written content, or suggest a relevant product.


Integrate Watson Analytics for Smarter Applications

Watson Analytics is a data analysis and visualization service that delivers the benefits of cognitive analytics without the complexity. You can interact with data conversationally to display results. Consult PFD on using Watson Analytics to get data answers to business questions.


Use Watson IoT Platform to Build IoT Solutions That Think


Watson IoT simplifies cognitive IoT development. It has solutions for industries (automotive, electronics, insurance, manufacturing, retail) and applications (asset management, facilities management, product development). Watson IoT connects sensors with devices and IoT data with cognitive computing to:


  • Create applications quickly, monitor regularly, deploy rapidly
  • Enhance customer service while reducing operating costs
  • Improve performance, safety and efficiency


PFD adds more value: cross-platform experience in Data Engineering & Data Science projects, innovative strategies, solution customization and reliability. We know what customers want, what questions to ask, how to make it happen and overcome challenges – technical or company politics-related.
