ISV > Cloud Accelerate

According to Microsoft, 80% of businesses are deploying or fully embracing the cloud (Source: IDC CloudView 2016 Survey). Whether you’re a start-up, wanting to expand your existing capabilities, or looking to reinvent your business model, the cloud can be a route to business transformation by decreasing your costs, improving customer experience, and increasing the scale and agility of your infrastructure and deployment.

Our Cloud Accelerate programme includes:


Discovery
The first step we take towards your cloud journey is a technical consultation. It’s important we understand where you are today and what your business vision is so we can translate that into a clear proposal.
Re-architecture
The next step is putting in place the technology to help you get to where you want to be. We can re-architect your application using Microsoft Azure to make it a flexible, scalable deployment, or ‘lift and shift’ your existing infrastructure for the short term using VMs and PaaS. Examples of re-architecting a solution to a PaaS model could be due to an aging system, or you want to make use of the scale available in the cloud.
Migration
We plan carefully to deliver a solution that will provide a transition of your data to the cloud without affecting your business. In particular cases, we may be able to provide funding for proof of concept. We conduct an infrastructure audit to ensure best practices are in place for security, availability, scalability, infrastructure automation, monitoring, and disaster recovery.
Security
We understand the importance of security and compliance, so we offer:
  • A security health check
  • Consultancy on developing your applications with security best practices
  • Open source and third party code vulnerability analysis
  • Compliance guidance, whether it’s Cyber Essentials, PCI DSS or ISO 27001
  • Training where requested
DevOps
Microsoft Azure can be utilised to enable dev and test functions. With Visual Studio Team Services, development teams have DevOps best practice tooling to create a streamlined continuous integration and release pipeline for applications written in any language, when deploying to the cloud. We offer a full range of services and consultancy to enable your development teams, and other third party tools to help you modernise your client application for touch screens and for multi device deployment.
Support
Our priority is to help every ISV and App builder partner benefit from the efficiencies and flexibility that the cloud offers. Our pre and post sales support is accessible by phone, email and web portal.
