The Cloud for modern business

Moving work into the public cloud can be much like moving to a new datacentre, but organisations can often get caught out when trying to quickly adopt Microsoft Azure as their datacentre through a lack of familiarity with the differences.

Microsoft Azure Operations Framework

Moving work into the public cloud is similar to moving to a new data centre. The same core elements are needed, however with Microsoft Azure the names and properties are either slightly different or offer radical opportunities for change. Companies often get caught out by the unfamiliarity of a new data centre when trying to quickly adopt Microsoft.

How Trustmarque can help: A new datacentre in a matter of weeks

Trustmarque has helped many organisations to make this move successfully through our Microsoft Azure Operations Framework. We provide a series of detailed workshops to help you and your team cover all areas needed to build an Azure datacentre ready for production loads. Using these and your cloud strategy, we will be able to formalise the design and operation of your new datacentre, ready for build.

We can also offer you further support in designing your new datacentre. This process can typically take several months of work, but by using the initial output from the Azure Operations Framework, we can reduce this to around five weeks of workshops and planning.

With our Microsoft Azure Operations Framework, you can:

  • Make fast and efficient use of Azure’s capabilities
  • Reduce learning curve
  • Prevent sprawl and rework
  • Control costs of building a new datacentre
  • Speeds up delivery to drive a rapid return on investment

Active Directory on Microsoft Azure

Your Active Directory (AD) is critical to your organisation. Without one, your workforce will either have access to everything or to nothing at all. When Active Directory is running correctly, new starters can be added and leavers removed with ease. When it is not running correctly, delays can be caused and it can prevent people working efficiently.

Move your Active Directory to the cloud or keep it on-premise:

  • Moving Active Directory to the cloud allows your workforce access to cloud apps such as Office 365, and quickly scale your user base when required without needing to buy or install new infrastructure.
  • Keeping your Active Directory on-premise, using a hybrid Active Directory solution, enables employees to access on-premise and cloud apps from any device anywhere while your IT department maintains full control over access and management of devices and apps.

New starters, new problems

An Active Directory is an essential part of every organisation. An organisation that understands its Active Directory can easily accommodate both new starters, and employees that change positions within the company, by simply adding new users and adjusting access controls.

What are the benefits of Microsoft Azure Active Directory?

  • Increase user productivity and collaboration
    • Workforce can access cloud apps and services with a single sign on
    • Workforce can access apps from any device, anywhere
    • Enable employees to work collaboratively from anywhere on any device
    • Add and remove users when necessary
  • Compliance
    • Control of devices and the apps users can access
    • Instant on/off user management
  • Improve security
    • Improve application security with Azure AD multifactor authentication and conditional access
    • Only allow authorised persons to access certain data and apps
    • Secure mobile access to on-premises applications
    • Protect your organisation from potential advanced threats with Security reporting and application usage monitoring
