Understanding key issues


Data Centre costs and contract expiry

Data Centre ownership is expensive, distracting and requires specialists to help keep pace. We address skill shortfall(s) in a sustainable, cost-effective manner, so you can focus on your business.

Technology and service provider lock-in

Microsoft Azure Cloud and our Azure Cloud Services free you of lock-ins via our Cloud native open standards approach.

Urgent capacity needs

Our Managed Services will monitor your Cloud compute capacity using standard or customised thresholds and offer the ability to scale on demand. You pay only for the resources used.

Disruptive and costly hardware lifecycle

We deliver a consistently supported and maintained IT estate. We identify ageing or end-of-life technology and our change processes eradicate costly disruption.


The Microsoft Azure platform is created using some of the most rigorous security and compliance standards in the world. Security is a focus throughout all our customer engagements.


Microsoft maintains several compliance standards for Azure which adheres to security controls for ISO 27001, ISO 27018, SOC 1, SOC 2, SOC3, FedRAMP, HITRUST, MTCS, IRAP, and ENS.
