 Frequently placing all your eggs in one basket is not the most efficient way to build a corporate ecosystem.  With today’s Microsoft Software as a Service offerings (like Office365), powerful local offerings (like Windows Server and workstations) and cloud based hosting options (like Azure) your best environment is a blended environment that uses the strengths of each of those platforms, while avoiding each one’s pitfalls.


This 2 hour presentation will cover the following topics:

  • ·       Overview of the current Microsoft cloud and local offerings and their advantages and disadvantages. ·
  •   H How to use the strengths of each platform in designing a solution.   
  •            How business continuity fits into the picture
  • ·        Why a strong, manageable network infrastructure is key to fixing these issues
  • ·           Why you need a systems architect to ask you the right questions and design the proper solution for your business needs
