Successful entrepreneur, Jim Ball, has joined Smart Migrator as board adviser. He previously co-founded one of the world’s leading Oracle DB to AWS migration consultancies – clckwrk. After growing it since the early days of the cloud to become the delivery partner of choice for many large organizations, it was acquired by Navisite in 2019.

Prior to that, Jim Ball held various technical roles at Oracle and other big tech companies.

Peter Simeonov, CEO & Founder of Smart Migrator, said:

“I’m really excited to have Jim onboard. He has deep expertise in the cloud sector and in developing strategic alliances. He will play a key role in our growth and will focus on helping us develop key partnerships, especially with the big public cloud providers. His humble personality also fits right in and will make our daily rollercoaster more fun. I really appreciate his support and look forward to learning from his experience and wisdom.”

Jim Ball also commented:

“Successful migration and management are key to unlocking the benefits of cloud. Once migrated, you have a broad set of services to use and benefit from, but even a decade or more into the era of cloud, that migration is still complex, expensive and prone to error. The team at Smart Migrator are tackling that problem head-on and providing customers with quick, cost-effective and robust routes to the cloud. I’m proud to be an advisor and supporter in that endeavor.”
