Microsoft Azure

Helping customers realise the scalability, resilience and security of the Microsoft Azure platform.

Microsoft Azure is a range of continually evolving cloud services designed to meet the demands of any organisation operating in the digital age.

Benefit from AI and machine learning, analytics, security access to IoT, all of which can complement and integrate with your existing systems.

Adopting Microsoft Azure will deliver a greater balance between security, flexibility and affordability versus your current infrastructure solution. What’s more, if you're a not for profit organisation we can help you access over £2500 worth of Azure credits per year to facilitate your transition and minimise your ongoing infrastructure costs.

 

What can Azure bring to my organisation?

Upon delivering this evolved infrastructure, our view is that your organisation could benefit in three ways:

  • An ability to invest more in your business, your people and your technology - achieved by reducing or eliminating infrastructure and server costs with transition to Microsoft Azure, a modern, highly secure and compliant IT environment
  • Safer and more powerful Microsoft applications - Microsoft 365 Business Premium offers access the latest Office 365 desktop applications and other powerful cloud services including Exchange Online, OneDrive for Business and Microsoft Teams as well as several advanced security features
  • Peace of mind with secure desktop access - Through taking advantage of the Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) usage rights included within M365 Business Premium to provide a secure Windows desktop environment running in Azure to any device, in any location.
