It’s clear from the conversations that I’ve been having with my clients that a lot of industries are feeling the huge pain of Covid-19 and will likely now be impacted by the UK recession that we are now officially in.

So far, technology (especially Cloud and Collaboration areas) has seen the lowest impact – and in some cases even huge growth – due to a number of factors such as:

  • High demand in organisational needs to support home working.
  • Managing legacy infrastructure.
  • Preparing for a second Covid wave.
  • Delivering the operational expertise required to maintain, migrate, manage and support its IT needs.

Cloud is generally the first choice for customers looking to address these needs, concerns on escalating running costs when migrating are by far the most common.

In short:

If Cloud was considered a strategic initiative for an organisation before Covid19 then, Cloud is certainly the first choice for customers now.

 

Cost Busting Azure Optimisation Services

I’m always looking at ways I can ensure our clients continue to see the value of Cisilion’s propositions and services. This ethos is the fundamental reason for our direct alignment of internal resource provided to our customers, including access to both product and technical pre-sales consultants with monthly spotlights and quarterly reporting at no additional cost.

The Cisilion Azure CSP Cost Optimisation Service is proven, backed up by customer testimonials, and repeatedly demonstrates great value to our new and existing Azure CSP clients through valuable insights, advice, strategy and most importantly control on Azure spend using the Azure Cost Management Portal.

 


 

Why Now?

Until recently, Azure Cost Management was not available to customers who bought and consumed Azure via CSP Partners like Cisilion.

In fact, we were amongst the first Azure partners to begin transitioning customers to the new Azure Commerce Platform from the moment it was officially released.

 

 


 

It’s Azure – Just Cheaper!

Evolution has, and always will be, the key to survival. Whilst your business may have other issues to face during these times of uncertainty, we can be sure of one thing – our Azure Optimisation services can help organisations realise the better value from their current investment in Microsoft Azure.

Our customers typically see 35% annual savings on average on their Azure Cloud spend, with no architectural changes required on their platform to achieve these savings.  Quarterly persona mapping and Insight Analytics provided within our service further encourages customers to utilise flexibility of the platform, via our Self-Service Customer Provisioning Portal.

 


 

Our Cloud Optimisation Guarantee

Like others we have helped, we are convinced that we can help your organisation save money on their Azure spend – whether to allow you to accelerate further cloud deployment or to free up spend to focus on other parts of your business.

The confidence in our business ethos and commitment to providing honest and valuable advice and feedback to our customers will undoubtedly hold us all in good stead for what the future holds.

 

 

Sounds too good to be true, right?

 They always say that ‘if something sounds too good to be true, then it probably is’. So, I am sure that you will be questioning how are we saving customers so much money? Is it magic? Is it a different or lesser service? Are we cutting virtual corners?

We like to put our money where our mouth is. So, if you want to see how much you can save, please contact us below for a further discussion.
