Transforming the IT Landscape
Microsoft Datacenter and Cloud Solutions
Microsoft solutions can be complex, and sometimes you need to bring in the experts to help you plan and implement the technology properly. Stratiform has been providing Professional Services focused on Microsoft solutions since its inception. We bring the most talented, experienced consultants on board and deliver the best quality consulting services possible to our customers by understanding the unique business challenges you face.
Stratiform has executed multiple Office 365 projects with IT administrators, Directors, VPs and CIOs and we have the expertise you need to ensure it’s done right, from planning and conception, to deployment and operation. Whether you are a small business migrating from a consumer-based email system to a large enterprise with a complex on-premises Exchange environment, we will provide the right migration solution for you.
In addition to Exchange Online, we have helped many organizations with planning and implementing Office 365 ProPlus, OneDrive for Business and Skype for Business, providing training sessions and workshops to ensure maximum value is reaped from these powerful technologies.
We’ve seen it all, and know exactly where the pitfalls and ‘gotchas’ are with this critical business service. Our careful planning and design approach will ensure all aspects are taken into consideration, giving you the assurance that business will continue uninterrupted throughout this phase. If you have 150+ staff, we can also help you take advantage of subsidies that can offset the costs of your email migration.
There are a lot of things to consider when creating an Azure Migration Strategy, and Stratiform is here to help. Be it a single application or an entire data centre, Stratiform’s five-phase approach is fully-customizable, so you’ll get a solution that works perfectly for your organization. We will handle the migration and hand-off, minimizing awkward transition time as much as possible.
Microsoft Azure is a flexible cloud platform that enables you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. With Azure, you can be up and running fast, scale up or down as needed, and avoid high capital costs—paying only for what you use.
Stratiform is a leading Microsoft Azure solutions provider, and we have helped many organizations determine the specific workloads that make sense for them to move to the cloud.
Our Azure professional services can help you build a strong foundation to build a virtual datacenter in the cloud and leverage all the power and cost-efficiencies of the cloud to the maximum business advantage. We are one of the most experienced Azure practices in Western Canada and have performed Azure planning, migration, deployment, and optimization projects for some of the largest and most complex Azure customers in the west.
Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) is comprehensive set of tools that gives you everything you need to enable mobile and remote access with better protection and management, including Azure Active Directory Premium, Windows InTune and Windows Rights Management Services.
Stratiform can help your organization to assess, plan, deploy and extend EMS. We have qualified, experienced consultants that have worked with many customers to discuss their mobile strategy, identify success factors and goals and deliver the benefits of EMS quickly.
Windows 10 Planning & Development
Our depth of experience in Operating System migrations enables us to understand the challenges and opportunities you will face when planning for Windows 10. We’ll also help you navigate the technical and business requirements to ensure that your Windows 10 migration works for you. You may have mission-critical systems that cannot receive updates the same way as your end users do. We can help you design and implement the strategies that will work best for your unique business.
As with any Operating System upgrade, there will be application and browser compatibility considerations, and we have deep experience with how to plan, test, mitigate and deploy to maximize your migration project.
Additionally, we can help you leverage POC funding from Microsoft to get started on the path to Windows 10.
System Center Configuration Manager
If you’ve got hundreds or thousands of desktops and servers to manage, you need a strategy. Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager is the market-leading systems management tool for automating and optimizing your desktop and server estate, from inventory and asset intelligence to automated Operating System deployment and software delivery, as well as patch management, compliance reporting and more.
Whether you need a check-up, assistance implementing new functionality in an existing deployment, upgrade assistance, or end-to-end architecture, design and implementation, Stratiform is a leading ConfigMgr provider and can help you put this technology to work for you.
Applications are central to the success of your business, and managing an ever-growing and complex application portfolio can be a significant and costly challenge. We can help you develop an application management strategy and introduce systems, standards and processes that allow for efficient and streamlined application delivery.
We can provide ongoing application packaging services to allow for automated application delivery to end users via App-V and System Center Configuration Manager, as well as project-based services to analyze your applications and create a plan for end-to-end automation and lifecycle management.
Microsoft Technology Roadmap
Staying on top of all the changes and innovation coming from Microsoft can be a full time job. Understanding the interdependencies and complexities involved can be a challenge for even the most experienced IT professionals. Stratiform has unique, deep insight into the Microsoft roadmap and can provide valuable guidance to our customers to help them understand upcoming releases, end-of-life for current technologies and a detailed roadmap of how to get where you need to be to realize your business objectives.
