Cloud Assure ISV QuickStart: 3-Day Assessment

Grey Matter

Grey Matter’s Cloud Assure ISV QuickStart service will help you, as an ISV or Application Builder, deploy your application to Microsoft Azure regardless of the existing deployment model.

What’s the process?

  1. One of our Microsoft Certified Cloud Solutions Architects will work closely with you to gain an in-depth understanding of your goals and how they can be achieved
  2. That done, we’ll give you some application deployment and delivery options to suit your needs, whether Azure based Virtual Machines (IaaS) or application requirements to support Azure Platform Services (PaaS)
  3. We’ll then audit your existing deployment model to find out how much Azure you’re currently or would be using
  4. Next up, we’ll determine your requirements for test and development environments
  5. Lastly, we’ll give you all our findings in a comprehensive report that road-maps your journey with some tips on deployment best practice, along with our security and resource recommendations

If, after reviewing our report you’re not ready to go it alone, don’t worry, we can provide on-going consultancy to implement recommendations.

What are the immediate benefits to you?

  • Happier customers who will benefit from the seamless operation and delivery of your application
  • Cost savings will give you back some hard-earned cash to reinvest
  • More time to focus on developing with the simplification of the environment you’re supporting
