Simplify Your Journey

Digital transformation is a driving force in business. No matter the industry, organisations continue to accelerate digital initiatives to advance their business and gain a competitive edge. That focus is more important than ever today as the world begins to move into the era of AI.

The cloud has been vital in helping organizations adapt to changes in the business landscape and evolving customer demands. While early digitisation strategies focused on understanding where and how the cloud could benefit the business, those views have shifted and become more encompassing.

Organisations today see the cloud as a critical part of their overall technology portfolio, whether that means a hybrid environment or going “all in” on the cloud.


Our Cloud Approach

Cloud has become an important tool for addressing top business priorities and helping organisations move faster, be more resilient and adaptable to change, and strengthen security postures. And yet, while organisations recognise the value and power of the cloud, getting started migrating to the cloud and modernising resources can feel challenging.

At Leap, we’re committed to simplifying your cloud migration and modernisation experience so you can deliver value to your business. That's why we have partnered with global leader Microsoft to leverage their Azure cloud platform. 

Our guided, four-phase approach is structured to understand your business needs, identify your best options, and set you up to implement the solutions. With Microsoft and Leap at your side, the Solution Assessments process comprehensively covers the full arc of your organization and informs your next strategic moves.

Planning - Identify Your Business Objectives

Phase one of your Cloud Solution Assessment is designed to help you identify your business goals. We gather critical information about your IT infrastructure and share your key business outcomes. We ensure that your organisation’s goals and objectives align with our recommended course of action.

Data Collection - Get a Clear Picture of Your Data
Phase two of your Solution Assessment will give you a clear picture of your current data estate. We will perform a detailed inventory of your organization’s software and hardware assets, and then conduct a deep dive into your data, including user deployment along with network and system usage.
Data Analysis - Optimize Your Investments
With our analysis and verification of your collected data and infrastructure, phase three gives you a full view of your current IT environment. From here, we will create a roadmap based on your goals—maximizing the potential of your IT environment.
Action - Implement Your Strategic Plan

In phase four, you receive tailored recommendations and next steps—including detailed reports, business cases, and execution plans. Moving forward, you and your organisation can team up with Microsoft, or one of our recommended partners, to begin your transformation.

Value of Cloud Migrations and Modernisation 

Making progress on your digital goals with Microsoft Azure starts with a migration and modernization journey. The two initiatives are closely related yet bring different advantages for you to consider. 

Migrations involve moving applications, infrastructure, and data from your private, on-premises datacenter to the public or hybrid cloud. Migrations give you the foundation for an elastic, scalable, and secure infrastructure. 

A cloud migration will help you start to realize several important benefits. For example, your organization may experience lower IT costs by rightsizing capacity, so you are only spending on the compute and storage resources that you use. When you need greater capacity, you can easily scale up usage, giving you a more flexible approach. You’ll also be able to strengthen your overall security posture through Azure’s comprehensive security controls, and benefit from Microsoft’s $1 billion annual investment in securing its cloud environments. 

Modernization initiatives, on the other hand, involve updating existing or legacy applications to incorporate newer computing approaches, such as modern application frameworks or cloud-native technologies. Modernization allows you to innovate existing applications to provide better user experiences, greater business agility, and cost efficiencies. By adopting modern frameworks and technologies, you enable greater developer velocity, making it easier for your people to create, test, and launch new innovations. 

Often, modernization projects build on migration to the cloud. For example, moving data to the cloud opens the door to gaining more value from the integration across your data and applications. Once your data is in the cloud, you can extend your cloud infrastructure foundation to apply more advanced analytics, or even integrate AI/ML approaches to glean richer and predictive insights from your data estate.

Cost and Operational Efficiencies with Microsoft Azure

The inherent properties of cloud, including elasticity, high availability, security, scalability, and more, open a multitude of benefits for organisations. These benefits offer you ways to create significant business advantages while accelerating digital transformation initiatives.
