  • Single Sign On enables secure access to your apps, enabling your teams to stay productive from anywhere.

  • Conditional Access and multi-factor authentication to protect and govern access. Manage identities to ensure the right people have access to the right resources.

  • Azure AD supports more than 2,800 pre-integrated software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications.

Storage

  • Access a range of storage options to meet all business needs. Store unstructured data at massive scale with Azure Blobs. Use a virtual hard disk for Azure virtual machines, a file system service for the Cloud and Azure Tables for storing flexible datasets.

  • All data written to an Azure storage account is encrypted by the service. You retain fine-grained control over access.

MHR Analytics: Plan, Migrate, Optimise, Succeed

MHR Analytics offers a menu of services, designed to de-risk your journey to the Cloud, to meet your business requirements and to ensure you reap the full benefits of the Azure platform.

Planning

Taking a consultative approach, we help you assess the current state of your IT environment and the business issues you want to address.

We help you determine which systems, databases and workloads would benefit from Cloud migration. This includes an assessment of storage options, along with analysis of which Azure features and add-ons are likely to be most relevant.

For many organisations, a hybrid model will be appropriate, with some systems migrating and others remaining on-premise. We ascertain which delivery model will be suitable, whether an industry standard or bespoke model.

We enable you to define KPIs and performance baselines covering areas such as user experience, component performance and business engagement rates.

Migration

We help you identify the most suitable migration approach, determining what should be migrated, and in what order. The aim is to ensure minimal business disruption.

We assist with refactoring existing applications and services so they perform as effectively and efficiently as possible within the Cloud.

This includes detailed data migration planning, including cleansing, validation, along with all modifications necessary to fit the new Cloud environment.

Optimisation

Putting our in-depth knowledge of Cloud infrastructure to work, we can provide ongoing assistance with security, governance and management.

We provide advice, guidance and project management input for internal Cloud projects to optimise performance and cost-effectiveness.

As the Azure environment evolves, we can help you avoid unnecessary spend by identifying underutilised or idle resources. This includes identifying focus areas to assist in optimising Azure usage.
