  • 60% of businesses see digital transformation as contributing to operational efficiency and streamlining processes.
  • IT modernisation can increase employee motivation by up to 40%
  • In 2007, only 21% of the world’s population had access to the Internet. Now more than 47% of people, even in remote areas, are online


Microsoft Azure offers the flexibility to scale up or down at the click of a button and only pay for what you consume.

Need to spin up 2 servers for a week? Only pay for what you use. Azure provides you with quick access to enterprise grade technology platforms.

  • The average office worker  wastes 21 days per year due to outdated technology.
  • 41% of business users have critical company data trapped in legacy systems that cannot be accessed by cloud services.
  • 92% of businesses expect the cloud to increase revenue over the next two years.

Truly Outsourced IT

Utilising cloud servers through Azure means you may not need servers onsite. This means you can have a truly outsourced, subscription based IT setup. We can create your Microsoft Azure environment and manage it completely for you!


Do you need to increase your server resources temporarily, or perhaps you need to reduce them for a couple of months. Azure gives you the flexibility to add and remove resources as you require them. 

  • 48% of businesses say new technology will influence growth over the next three years
  • 72% of SMB decision makers say that technology can help them improve the way they run their business

Reduce your security risk

Using Azure means you get access to Microsoft’s enterprise grade cyber security technology for a small fee. 

  • Cybercrime will cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2055
  • An estimated 111 billion lines of new software code are produced each year — creating a massive number of vulnerabilities
  • Only 1% of stolen, lost or compromised records are encrypted


Both platforms are great and offer different benefits. This discussion should be around what you need cloud services for. If you are already using or planning to use other Microsoft services, generally Azure will be the better choice.

One of the great things about utilising large scale cloud platforms, like Azure, is you are accessing enterprise grade technology for a fraction of the cost. Microsoft invest billions of dollars into their infrastructure, giving you access to security technology that you may not otherwise have had. 

We can help you setup multi cloud backup or, if you prefer and it works out to be more suitable, cloud to on premise backup. We’ll work with you to determine the best setup for your business.
