“Businesses should embrace digital transformation, not only to survive — but also to thrive.”
Companies are able to leverage the latest technology, rethink their future and disrupt the market because of the tools and capabilities at their fingertips. This technical application is what leads to digital transformation and drives innovation across the organization.
Ten years ago, the barriers for true innovation and transformation were high in terms of time and cost. Now, thanks to the public cloud, the toolsets have expanded, and innovation and transformation are not only reachable, they’re achievable.
Digital innovation and transformation don’t happen overnight. They require a journey to make it meaningful and to get it right. It starts when you truly understand the challenge you’re facing. It also requires the right blend of consulting expertise and the correct application of technology.
The three factors to kickstart your digital innovation journey:
Assessment and Planning
You can’t start a journey until you know where you need to go. We have partnered with Microsoft to provide clients with a funded Microsoft Cloud Accelerator – an assessment service designed to help organizations assess where they are on the maturity scale to move to the Microsoft cloud and evaluate their application environment. The output of this assessment is a custom business case with associated ROI value, a cloud migration plan and future roadmap for your recommended move to Microsoft Azure, Microsoft 365 or Microsoft Dynamics.

Cloud Adoption Framework
A cloud adoption framework is critical for defining policies, establishing best practices and standards for how to leverage the cloud for applications, services, virtual machines, for managing change, and for evaluating and potentially abandoning legacy practices. The first phase of our process leverages our On-Ramp methodology to lay a foundation for people, processes and technology by creating a cloud adoption framework for migrating and operating in the cloud.

Governance and Change Management
Lifting and shifting legacy practices when migrating to the cloud may mean there’s an inherent lack of governance and enforcement that could result in unnecessary security risks or events. By identifying and auditing existing governance and controls that may or may not be ideal once in the cloud and course-correcting on these processes, you’re saving yourself from these types of issues in the long run.

Master the migration
We don’t consider a move to the cloud as a process––we see it as a partnership. Whether you’re migrating to Microsoft Azure, Microsoft 365 or Microsoft Dynamics, we believe the best approach to migration is one that engages, guides and trains the customer every step of the way. Once migration is complete, your team isn’t simply dropped into the cloud to face a steep learning curve in order to reap the benefits. Instead, by the time migration has completed, your team is trained, self-sufficient and ready to operate and innovate, unlocking your organization’s investment immediately.
Migrate to Microsoft Azure
Our proven, partnership- based approach to helping customers migrate to Microsoft Azure ensures that we drive ultimate success every time. Our On-Ramp to Azure consists of defined sprints, based on the customer’s priorities, appetites, complexities, and criticalities from both a business and technical perspective.
Sprints occur within three defined stages:
- Application Readiness

Migrate to Microsoft 365
We leverage a precise migration planning structure to streamline your migration to Microsoft 365. No matter what platform you are coming from, our On-Ramp to Microsoft 365 provides your organization with certainty when it comes to upfront costs, greater business agility, enhanced organizational communications, boosted employee productivity and streamlined IT operations.
Once implementation is completed, we provide organizational training on the key features while implementing change-management best practices to ensure strong employee adoption and optimized utilization of the Microsoft 365 platform.

Now is the time to make a change for the better and explore a cloud-driven business management solution that will empower your teams to get work done from anywhere. We can guide you throughout the process with our On-Ramp to Dynamics 365 Business Central methodology, so you can manage your company’s financials, sales, service and operations all with one solution.
