Widespread access at any time and from anywhere

With traditional software you may have multiple physical copies of software, each potentially of a different version and with a potentially different configuration, installed throughout your business. This could, and probably does, cause numerous issues.

It’s thus clear why Software as a Service (SaaS) has become so popular and become a common delivery model for many business applications. SaaS describes a cloud service where you are able to access software applications over the internet. It ensures that all locations and all employees are using the same version at the same time. It allows applications to be available from any computer or any device, anytime and anywhere.

With lower upfront capital costs, the ability to get up and running quickly, immediate access to updates and streamlined maintenance, SaaS has many benefits. Furthermore, it provides you with the assurance that applications will be available whenever you need them, wherever you need them and at the performance level you expect.

We currently offer the following services:

Office365

This provides an online version of Microsoft Office suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Publisher, OneNote and Outlook) together with Microsoft’s hosted servers (Exchange, Exchange  and Lync Server) to give your organisation a consistent experience across multiple users, devices and locations. These services are used by virtually all employees so it makes sense to want to ensure they have access to their email, documents, contacts, and calendars on any device, at any time.

 

Best of all, you don’t need to worry anymore about server patching, updating or upgrading. That’s all done automatically for you and everyone gets the newer version at the same time. What that means is no more time consuming management or administration duties.

 

Office365 Advantages

Many organisations are moving to the cloud and are choosing to migrate to Office 365 because of advantages that include:

  • Fast and easy deployment,
  • Improved productivity
  • Lower and more predictable IT costs.

Through a comprehensive assessment, we’ll determine the right solution for your organisation and will work with you to migrate existing data and workloads.

 

Content as a Service

If you’re struggling to provide fast, on-demand storage to users and this is resulting in inconsistent or incomplete backups, underutilised infrastructure and insufficient data protection, then our Content as a Service (CaaS) solution will be what you’re looking for.

 

CaaS is designed to help you reduce your costs of storing and managing massive amounts of static data by archiving content offsite. Since it’s a cloud service, it offers you the flexibility to dynamically grow and shrink capacity according to business demands.

 

We maintain your chosen data remotely while you retain easy access to the data, regardless of user location. You’ll be able to store, share, protect, preserve, analyse and retrieve file data from an enterprise-level cloud platform. It provides users and applications with a standard (CIFS and NFS) on-ramp solution which eases and simplifies deployment since applications and the way users use storage are not affected.
