Give a brief overview of Kendoo Solutions and its solutions and services?
Kendoo Solutions is a Cloud Computing consulting company that focuses on supporting clients in their journey to the cloud and implementing Big Data and DevOps solutions. As an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner, the company has a team of highly qualified professionals and many success cases with clients of several industries.
How do you diversify your product offerings to appeal to your target audience?
We believe that not always the state of the art solution is the best solution for each client’s reality, sometimes because of costs and sometimes because of operational complexity. With that in mind, we deeply understand each client’s challenges and with a highly qualified team of experts that know the best practices, we plan and implement the solution that is best for the clients’ reality.
Give a detailed explanation regarding the Founder/CEO/Management’s contribution in the industry and the company?
The founding partners have a strong technical background and have always focused on using the technologies in the best possible way to help clients. Nowadays, Filipe focuses on understanding the client’s business and technical challenges, and developing new deals while Pedro, with several AWS certifications, focuses on developing complex solutions and managing Kendoo’s technical team. Besides, we organize Rio de Janeiro’s Cloud Computing Community that has more than 2000 members, with free events every month to discuss technologies, concepts, tools and case studies related to cloud computing.
What historical forces, achievements or learning have shaped the journey of the company?
The company was founded by students from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), one of the best engineering schools in the country that made research on virtualization, security, and networks, with a strong technical background. In the beginning of the company, besides the consulting services, the company developed its own startups. The startups won several prizes, such as the Young Entrepreneurs Award in Rio de Janeiro, Desafio Brasil and TOP 10 Seedstars World. After a strategic decision on focusing only in cloud consulting services, the learning from the startups developed a big sense of ownership and frugality in the company, understating by its own experiences the importance of doing more with less that we take to our clients’ solutions on daily bases.
What are the core strengths of Kendoo Solutions offerings?
Kendoo has a highly specialized technical team, where even interns have to accomplish an AWS Associate Certification in 6 months in the company, even without a prior knowledge of AWS services. The company aims to always implement the best technology solution to each client’s reality.
Where does Kendoo Solutions sees itself in the near future and what are its future goals?
Kendoo Solutions plans to be a reference company in Latin America for Cloud Computing and Big Data solutions. We aim to expand our offices in Brazil and have commercial presence in other countries in the next five years.
How do integrators/managed service providers/value-added resellers and public sector partners benefit by doing business with your company?

Give us some testimonials of your clients that accurately highlights company name’s standing in the market.
It was then that we decided to study new solutions for a more efficient infrastructure. Then through one employee participated in a cloud computing event we met Kendoo Solutions. In a very transparent, honest and committed way, Kendoo immersed in our project, deeply understood our needs and presented a migration project for AWS.
From the beginning of our partnership we felt a lot of safety in Kendoo and as the actions were taken and the project evolved we were witnessing the exponential improvement of performance, stability and the best – reduced cost. Today we can say that we have a trustworthy AWS infrastructure, and Kendoo does the whole operation thinking about the performance but without forgetting our costs. – Luan Seixas, Director of Digital Business in Folha Dirigida
