Azure can bring the benefits of productivity, agility and decreased costs to your organisation, but like many things, realising the dream relies upon the preparation before you take the leap.
As an IT Services and Cloud Consultancy for medium to large enterprises in all sectors, we are aware that moving to cloud isn’t a simple choice, especially in the public sector and NHS which have their own issues.
What we purport to do on the surface is the exactly the same as myriad other competitors do. We’re in the IT business. It is sophisticated and complicated and most importantly what your information technology does is that it runs the key business and operational processes that run your business.
Moving to cloud is not a shortcut. Effective use of any type of cloud requires that all the ‘traditional’ IT disciplines as defined by ITIL and other best practice frameworks are in place and ideally automated. The good news is that most organisations will already have most of the required elements, which may just need to be re-architected or enhanced for cloud.
