Azure Strategy Workshop
Ensuring you are getting the best return from your Microsoft Azure investment.

The Azure Strategy Workshop is a 2 hour workshop, prepared and delivered by our most experienced Microsoft Azure experts. We will review your current Microsoft Azure strategy (or help you start to create one). We'll be open and friendly in our approach and are looking for opportunities to help rather than critique. We pride ourselves on being trusted advisors and will be honest in our assessment and suggest a strategy that will power your business for the future.

This workshop is aimed at technical leadership or non-technical leaders with accountability for IT.

Worskhops are typically facilitated by our CEO, Matt Hammond and CTO, Dan Meineck. We pride ourselves on being trusted advisors and will provide a strategy which is in your best interests.

  • An outline of your business goals, challenges and opportunities
  • An overview of your current position and approach to cloud
  • If applicable, a review of your current Azure or AWS estate
  • An open discussion on options and appetite for change
  • A high level strategy will be produced and delivered within a week of the workshop
