Expert services for increasing productivity across the enterprise

Productivity and profitability go hand-in-hand. To meet your business objectives, you must empower your workforce with the tools and services people need to work effectively and efficiently. The modern workplace must capitalize on technologies like Azure, Office 365, and Skype to enable better access to data and improved communication.
Organizations of all types and sizes are looking at service providers to answer their most pressing questions. How can we collaborate more effectively? How can we communicate more clearly? How can we take better advantage of the business intelligence we’re generating? They need systems that will allow them to improve management, save money, and enhance worker productivity.

Microsoft Azure services

Microsoft Azure is a cost-effective option for moving hardware and software resources and demands from on-premises to the cloud to provide greater IT agility and solutions for better managing your IT resource mix. The cloud is also an ideal platform for advanced capabilities like data backup using Veritas CloudCatalyst and NetBackup, and DR functions that capitalize on Azure's feature set. We offer services delivered remotely as well as enterprise services.  

Led by Windows Server, System Center, and Azure, Microsoft Cloud OS enables organizations to easily virtualize, deploy, manage, and automate workloads – whether in a private, public, or service provider cloud – and offers a consistent set of tools for development, management, and identity across the entire infrastructure.

  • Microsoft provides a truly hybrid cloud platform with a common set of technologies and capabilities across on-premises, Azure, and service provider clouds.
  • Microsoft offers the flexibility to maintain a consistent platform with integrated virtualization to move workloads between environments without change.
  • Organizations can easily move virtual machines “as-is” across on-premise, Microsoft Azure, and third-party hosts.
  • With Microsoft’s Cloud OS, companies have control to decide where to extend the platform: on-premises, on hosting service provider, the Microsoft public cloud, or any mix of these.
