Cloud computing is foundational to enabling digital transformation for any organisation.
– Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft
Infrastructure to match your ambition
Shift your IT delivery to a culture of continuous improvement to efficiency and innovation that keeps up with the speed of an evolving business. Transform your experiences for both your end user and customers by trialing and deploying applications hosted in the cloud.
A robust cloud infrastructure is the hub your IT services are built around, you can use hybrid functionality to connect to on-premise servers, but the move to the cloud is all about enabling you to focus on building for the future, rather than ‘keeping the lights on’.
Security as standard
Security and privacy are cornerstones of the Azure platform. Microsoft enforces that solutions hosted in Azure adhere to the Security Development Lifecycle (SDL). The SDL addresses security at every development phase and ensures that Azure is continually updated to make it even more secure. Azure Security Center makes Azure the only public cloud platform to offer continuous security-health monitoring.
With identity and access management, you can have a unified view of security across all of your on-premises and cloud workloads. Automatically discover and onboard new Azure resources, and apply security policies across your hybrid cloud workloads to ensure compliance with security standards.
User Centric Services
The Chief Architect at National Cyber Security Centre states “a highly secure solution that no-one uses isn’t secure at all”. Your people will only choose to use a system that helps them get their job done, if Azure does not give the service they require, they will look elsewhere leading to unmanaged, unregulated shadow IT solutions causing weaknesses in your security posture.
Our cloud solutions support a range of operating systems, programming languages, frameworks, databases, and devices. We can help you connect data and apps in the cloud and on-premises—ensuring maximum portability and value from your existing investments. With experience in hybrid, application development, management and security, identity management, and across the data platform. The chances are, if your users want it, we’ve already been done it in Azure.
Get off to a flying start
Microsoft state that transformation is as much about people as technology. We agree, and luckily have the portfolio to assist you with both. Thanks to our award winning Managed Service department, you can be confident you have skills across the azure stack at the end of a phone, or IM window ready to assist proactively and reactively depending on your needs. In addition to this, we can help your organisation develop a cloud-first culture thanks to our variety of learning offering to train your technical staff to work confidently in Azure, and develop apprentices to cover any skills gaps you have, helping you get value from the apprenticeship levy.
