Microsoft Office 365 is a collection of cloud-based, pay-as-you-go applications and platforms. They all have their different uses and advantages. Depending on what you are trying to achieve in your organization, an Office 365 product may or may not be appropriate for the task.
Microsoft Azure is the best way to replace your on-premise hardware by leveraging the cloud. With Microsoft Azure, entire servers can be migrated into the cloud, turning the largest capital expense in your IT spend into and affordable operating expense.
Once the server is virtualized, there is no need to maintain the physical infrastructure. Microsoft’s engineers are responsible for allocating the resources needed to support your virtualized instance. The cost of maintenance is rolled into the monthly subscription fee. More than 57% of Fortune 500 companies rely on Azure, which offers enterprise grade SLA’s on services, 24×7 tech support, and round-the-clock service health monitoring. Customers include 3M, AccuWeather, Condé Nast, Diebold, GE Healthcare, HarperCollins, Heineken, LG, NBC, Pier 1 Imports, Real Madrid, Saab, Samsung, Trek, Xerox…and many, many more.
The platform is easy to manage, available across a number of devices and platforms, highly available, and rapidly scalable. Data stored in the Microsoft Ecosystem is HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley compliant. Powerful encryption for all content ensures your data remains safe.
The most difficult part of the process is that of selecting the appropriate licensing, and achieving a successful migration from your existing service to Office 365. That is where we suggest you work with a knowledgeable and experienced IT provider, like TRA Consulting, to assist in facilitating the necessary changes. TRA Consulting, Inc. is a Microsoft Cloud Partner and Subscription Advisor.
