Advanced Public and Hybrid Cloud

Managed Azure Services

Advanced + Azure = The Smartest Way To The Cloud


To migration and beyond...

We recognise that organisations are at different stages with regards to fully leveraging the power of Azure. We advise, assist, secure and operate - wherever you may be on this journey. As a Microsoft Gold Partner with deep cross-sector knowledge, we enable you to get the very best from Azure.

We understand and solve your key issues

We provide services which are designed to solve our customers' key challenges.

  • Skill gap

    The industry-wide skill gap means lots of businesses don't have the required expertise to migrate or optimise Azure. This means they either need to invest heavily in upskilling the team - which is time consuming and costly, hire new recruits- which can be difficult in the current market, or outsource to experienced cloud service providers.

  • Understanding the hybrid mix

    Moving from on-premises to cloud is not like for like, so a 'lift and shift' approach simply will not work. You need to carry out a thorough analysis of your environment and assess which workloads are suitable for moving to the cloud and which should remain on-premises.

  • Spiralling costs

    The lack of expertise, expert planning and continuous optimisation, often results in the project taking much longer than expected and in businesses having unused licences and under-utilised resources. This means organisations find themselves with high costs and lower ROI than anticipated.

  • Security

    With new breaches hitting the headlines each day, security is top of most businesses' agenda. However, finding a solution that delivers robust, multi-location security without hindering the user experience can be challenging.
