We use impact mapping to build a clear view of the relationships between your data, stakeholders, users and business objectives. We then use this framework to create an accessible technical plan for a Proof of Concept that clearly demonstrates ROI for your organisation. We support in optimising and modernising applications by re-architecting and rebuilding legacy, hard to maintain apps into modern cross platform, cloud (Azure) accessible, scalable and perfomant solutions. Our focus is on data modernisation & consolidation, customer experience re-engineering, code refactoring & re-platforming, microservices architecture and application migration and modernisation.


Microsoft and Ascent have helped some of the largest businesses in Europe realise the cost and business benefits of application modernisation as part of their cloud journey. We’ll work with you to explore user experience, scalability and security, exploiting modern cloud native services to accelerate your transformation. Our focus is to solve problems, deliver new consumer experiences and go-to-market solutions. Create new value through innovative custom-built cloud native, hybrid and mobile software propositions leveraging the power of Azure.
