Azure | Getting Started

Whether you’re new to Azure or have already invested, we’re here to help you plan and build a solid platform

For many resource-strapped businesses, the thought of getting started with Azure can be overwhelming. Working out which workloads to move to cloud first can be hard, as can right-sizing your Azure investment to your needs.

Data#3’s Azure team can help you plan your move to cloud with confidence. Drawing on our vast experience helping hundreds of organisations prepare for Azure, we also have the advantage of having completed hundreds of Azure Health Checks for Australian organisations. We know what works and what doesn’t.

Stage 1

“Assess and plan”

Azure Readiness Assessment

Build a proven cloud roadmap and strategy  without guesswork or uncertainty. Our experts help you plan your move to cloud with confidence.

The Data#3 Azure Readiness Assessment includes a discovery workshop and analysis to determine which workloads to run in Azure, cost comparisons, and a high-level migration plan.

Azure Health Check

Of the hundreds of Azure Health Checks conducted by Data#3, only a handful of organisations have a clean bill of health.

Our health checks identify opportunities to optimise your Azure instances, and show you how to reduce costs without compromising performance.

Stage 2

“Build a solid platform”

Azure Foundation

Once you’ve identified which workloads to migrate, it’s time to develop and implement a secure Azure ‘scaffold’ that includes the appropriate security, governance, access policy, tagging and subscription topologies.

Data#3 can help you lay rock-solid foundations for a secure and resilient Azure environment.

Azure Remediation

After completing an Azure Health Check, it’s time to implement the resulting recommendations.

Data#3’s expert consultants have deep experience in the complex, multi-layered requirements of Azure. From serious security issues to overspending, we plan and implement changes to get your Azure environment into a healthy state much faster than your organisation may be able to achieve in-house.

75% of customers are paying too much for Azure.

Of those customers, some are overspending by as much as 70%.
