Hybrid Cloud Optimisation

For most organisations, a large portion of their funds are spent on Microsoft, so it’s worth ensuring the money is spent well and that your company has no exposure to any unacceptable risks and expenditure.

We can assist you to save money in a number of ways, including:

- Discovering and identifying your Microsoft apps and databases

- Comparing on-premises costs against cloud costs so you can redeploy more expensive applications or databases in a cloud platform

- Reconciliation and advice on your Office 365 subscriptions

- Looking into whether you’re running too many Azure instances
