Read the full whitepaper to find out.
The digital revolution has raised our expectations of the workplace. People now demand the ability to interact with colleagues whenever they need to, wherever they are and on whichever device they choose. They expect communication and collaboration to be always available and on-demand.
Microsoft Office 365 will turn your workplace into a highly collaborative environment, transforming how work is done in your organization and connecting employees, customers and partners in ways that improve productivity, agility and results.
Most IT organizations have built up considerable skills and resources to support their current on-premises collaboration and communications platforms and when these move to the cloud (or in many cases partially move to the cloud, creating a hybrid on-premises and cloud environment), the impact is considerable.
“All of our employees are now connected, and better able to serve our customers. They share their documents online, building their business plans together in a collaborative way – something that people could only dream of in Towergate 12 months ago.”
At Avanade, we understand that every business is unique and not all workloads are best suited for just one delivery platform. That’s why we offer solutions delivered your way: on Microsoft Office 365, on-premises private clouds, hosted virtual private clouds or a hybrid deployment. In fact, many clients choose to take advantage of a hybrid deployment and trust us to manage their ecosystem.
Our approach includes strategic planning, and proven industrialised tools and processes for faster migrations with less risk. We also offer training and change enablement to help speed end-user adoption and productivity. Experts located in our Managed Services Delivery Centers manage your Office 365 ecosystem remotely, powered by our innovative Avanade Management Platform. This frees up your IT function to concentrate on strategic initiatives and innovation on the platform.
And for unified communications transformations to cloud we have combined the Microsoft Skype Operations Framework (SOF) with our own proven consulting and managed services to help you realise the benefits of Cloud PBX through planning, delivery and operations expertise.
Our experience in delivering and managing Office 365 is second to none. We offer a comprehensive range of services, using leading-edge Microsoft technologies such as Exchange, SharePoint, Skype for Business, as well as OneDrive, Yammer and Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS).
