You’re in the cloud… Now what?
Today, it’s safe to assume some aspects of every environment are cloud-based, including yours. Early on, many assumed there was a cookie-cutter approach to success; but as our cloud sophistication grew, it became clear that there is no one-size-fits-all model. Public, private and hybrid cloud deployments each bring their own benefits – but how do you choose which, and how much, is right for you?
Despite all the resources available, very few organizations are confident that they are leveraging cloud to its true potential. Many organizations we deal with are in the same boat. They jumped onboard and are realizing the benefits. But the costs are higher than expected, too many people have access, or not enough controls are in place to truly realize the possibilities.
We created our cloud practice to address exactly these issues. With hundreds of cloud implementations across multiple industries, we have experience helping organizations design models that contain costs, provide lots of space for creativity and growth, and give IT the control they need to keep it all running safely and smoothly.

How cloud is changing business
Building a resilient and ready-for-anything environment
When Defence Construction Canada (DCC) found themselves unable to keep up with the security and infrastructure changes necessary to propel the business forward, they made the call to transition to Azure. Today, DCC works from a hybrid cloud environment that has not only made them more agile, but set them up to handle a quick transition to remote work with ease. Now their focus is solely on what they do best - the construction and management of defence-related facilities.
Transformation powers agile response to the unexpected and unplanned
By migrating their data and systems to a Microsoft’s Azure and Office 365 cloud environment, our turbine service industry client streamlined their business operations and gained autonomy over their IT environment. And when they needed to transition to remote work, they were able to pivot quickly and painlessly.

Understanding Hybrid IT
Ever wonder what all the fuss is about with hybrid IT? It seems like there’s always something new and exciting (and expensive and confusing) to consider for your IT environment. Buzz words abound, recommendations from various vendors flood in, but with so much to review, it can be difficult to discern what the right mix of cloud and on-premise storage should be for you.
Optimize your cloud resources to avoid bill shock
The business benefits of cloud computing have always been clear: Move your workloads off-prem and reap the rewards of a consumption-based model, paying only for what you use, along with the agility and massive scalability that you can only get from the cloud.
But receiving a bill that reads much higher than you expected is a more common occurrence than you might think.
Is Managed Cloud right for you?
With all the efficiency and agility that cloud brings, the growing popularity is unsurprising. That said, the growth of cloud use also brings significant additional requirements that can be complicated to manage. Resource optimization, migration of workloads, support and troubleshooting are all different in a cloud vs on-prem environment.
Managed clouds are custom built for your organization, designed to scale to your requirements and best of all, are managed, patched and supported by a specialized third party. For many organizations, the decision to consider a managed cloud is workload-specific and is often part of an overall hybrid cloud solution. Industry regulations, or a desire to hold sensitive data close, often leads to on-premise storage. But for those applications that require scale, agility and quick ‘anywhere, any device’ access, a public environment is an excellent option.
Options continue to grow in the public cloud arena. We’ve showcased our favoured partners below.
Never has the need for agility and security in business been more evident than now. The question is how to make it happen – without breaking the bank, or your ability to support it.
Microsoft Azure is an excellent place to start.
The cloud experience has changed what business leaders expect of IT. Shifting to an as-a-service model can provide the agility to innovate faster, provide consumption clarity and analytics, and offload daily management.
