Next Pathway, a provider of automated cloud migration services, has announced the opening of a new office in Pune, India, to support the company's growth strategy.

The company says the new office will add to its capacity to develop and innovate the SHIFT Migration Suite, while serving as a strategic site to advance its global service delivery capabilities.

"As more companies take a 'cloud-first' strategy, we've seen an increased demand for our automated migration tooling, SHIFT Migration Suite," says Next Pathway CEO, Chetan Mathur.

"Pune was an obvious choice for us - it's rich with experienced technical talent, and this office will allow us to better service our global customers and accelerate our research and development efforts."

The new office is part of Next Pathway's strategic plan to enhance the global engineering team and augment the firm's delivery capabilities to meet the growing demands of international clients and partners.

Clara Angotti, Next Pathway president, says it's an essential step for the company and strengthens its existing technical operations while providing a competitive advantage to deliver at the speed and quality that customers expect.

"The opening of the Pune office demonstrates Next Pathway's commitment to continuous innovation and will position the company to take on more client migrations and expand its global operations," she says.
