How we can help you with migrating applications to the cloud

Our expertise is in Microsoft enterprise technology with a focus on Azure for the cloud, supporting all aspects of migrating enterprise business systems.

A key factor in our Azure migration expertise is a solid foundation in the Microsoft on-premises enterprise platform stack; specifically, .NET, SQL Server, SharePoint Server, BizTalk Server. We understand each of these technologies implicitly and our knowledge here helps us to better understand how such applications will perform when deployed in a cloud environment, using services such as Azure App Services, Azure Functions, Azure SQL Databases, SharePoint Online, Logic Apps and Virtual Machines.

We also understand when systems can be migrated as they are and when they can be refactored to gain all the benefits that the cloud offers around cost and performance. Transitioning your applications to the cloud requires careful planning, strategy and execution and we are fluent in the processes required for successfully doing so.

Our consultants and developers are individually Microsoft Certified for their skill-sets, which means we are well placed to unravel any complexities along the way. We know that some systems take longer than others to migrate and plan for hybrid scenarios accordingly.

Then once you are in the cloud we can help you continue to evolve your applications and optimise assets with the latest in Azure services. We understand the potential to reduce support overheads with serverless-based applications and the capabilities of burstable VMs to ensure that you pay for the services that you use, not that sit there being under-utilised.

If your organisation is ready to gain competitive advantages such as higher efficiency, greater flexibility, lower costs and better performance for your applications and services, let’s talk!
