The obstacles faced
The on-premises data center was prone to flooding and this had become an unacceptable business risk. The company wanted to reduce its staff’s responsibility for managing and maintaining its IT estate. It saw a move to a PaaS and SaaS model as an opportunity to reduce upfront capital expenditure and to improve the security of its infrastructure.
This company knew it wanted to move to the cloud but didn’t know how. Ensono’s engagement began with a discovery and assessment project which produced the blueprint for the move to Azure. This project also uncovered areas where improvements could be made in employee productivity and satisfaction through Modern Workplace technologies. With a small internal team, the company needed a trusted partner that was able to drive the migration process forwards and implement the new workplace technologies.
The business now enjoys increased agility thanks to its move to the cloud. It is working with Ensono to deploy Windows Virtual Desktop throughout the organization for remote working and is using IoT technology for its vending machines.
