Azure 5-Day Proof of Concept (POC)

Azure 5-Day Proof of Concept (POC)

De-risk your cloud investment and experience the benefits of Azure with your systems and data with a 5-day Proof of Concept.

Microsoft’s Cloud – Azure – provides businesses of all sizes with the freedom, agility and scalability to grow. While companies are keen to start taking advantage of these benefits, it can be daunting embarking on a large-scale cloud project due to the cost commitment and uncertainty of the outcome. This is where a Proof of Concept (POC) offers significant value to organisations; our 5-Day POC allows you to evaluate Azure with a small-scale partial implementation or focus on a particular area you want to evaluate. We will work closely with you to build a POC, which can be used as a project business case, to gain company buy-in or to minimise project risk, time and cost; allowing you to make informed decisions before committing to a full project. Our most common POCs include: infrastructure migration, storage, Azure Site Recovery/Disaster Recovery and Backups.
Typical Approach

Our engagement and approach will vary depending on your requirements, but a typical approach could be:

Discovery call – we will listen to your project goals, success measures, current pain points and gain an understanding of your overall aims.
Consultancy – we will discuss potential solutions and approaches with you, so that we can determine the best approach together.
Define scope of work – we will define a clear scope with objectives and deliverables.
Build – we will build the proof of concept according to our agreed scope of work.
Review – we will demonstrate functionality and discuss the results together before giving you access to test and review.
Discuss next steps – we can discuss next steps to determine if the project will go ahead or not, or if the approach needs to be reviewed.
