Cloud & Platforms

No business can meet its long- term goals if business agility itself is hindered by obsolete, rigid and cost-intensive technical foundations. Netcompany supports and partners with organisations to evolve their technical foundations — not just to rehost applications in the cloud, but to enable innovation and agility by defining and delivering clear roadmaps to leverage the power of cloud capabilities.

Netcompany has been at the heart of managing and transitioning Europe’s most complex infrastructure estates to adopt and leverage capabilities delivered by cloud services. With our approach, blueprints and expertise we can assist in the evolution of your operating models. The result is an effective, sustainable cloud strategy — one that drives digital transformation and enables on-going ongoing services that securely future-proof your technology investment.

Whatever the business or IT outcome you need to achieve, Netcompany can provide an experienced team. We will work in partnership to scope, design and deliver the evolution of your technical foundation and leverage the capabilities delivered by cloud-based technologies.

We are technology agnostic and have expertise across the full range of cloud platforms. Consequently, we can provide true interoperability in hybrid configurations to ensure a seamless and performant experience for your workforce. Our approach is based on best practice and pragmatic experience to deliver the maximum benefits to your organisation, while ensuring a cost effective cost-effective model aligned to your business requirements.

Cloud migration

Migrating services to cloud platforms can be a daunting and complex task. Organisations have found that, once migrated, the costs can quickly accumulate and any perceived savings quickly vanish.

As experts in cloud technologies, Netcompany provides a complete end-to-end service for cloud adoption, integration and migration. Our service covers the initial discovery and suitability assessments, through to the design and implementation of the cloud platforms, their integration and interoperability with existing systems and ultimately onto the migration of services from their current locations to the chosen cloud platform. 

Not all services are equal when it comes to cloud migration and, as such, key decisions on the approach to migration and chosen cloud solutions will be taken in partnership with you. Options to refactor applications to take advantage of the true benefits that cloud services can deliver will be defined.

Understanding the impacts on existing infrastructure is key when planning the migration of services. Netcompany's teams are highly experienced in identifying potential issues and providing solutions to mitigate any risks — ensuring a highly secure and well-functioning technical foundation and subsequent connectivity to cloud services.

We will work with your internal teams to ensure that they are upskilled to support the ongoing management of the new environments. We can also provide further Managed Service support where required to augment your internal capabilities.

Cyber security

Cyber Security starts with a well designed and managed foundation of core infrastructure services. This, in turn, will enable a clear view of all assets, monitored and maintained in line with your required policies. Effective monitoring and controls need to be implemented at multiple layers within your technical foundation to ensure adequate protection of your systems and data. From effective identity access management leveraging layered controls, through to well established and practiced incident management processes, good Cyber Security spans the entire operating model.

Netcompany provides an initial health assessment of your organisation, including: a technical assessment of the estate; identifying issues and potential risks; tactical and strategic solutions to resolve these problems; analysis of your incident response maturity and overall staff awareness.

Netcompany then designs and implements the required Cyber Security solutions, resolving any issues and improving the overall security posture of your organisation in line with the requirements of your business.

Many organisations now require formal certification including Cyber Essentials Plus or ISO27001 to operate. Netcompany can assist your organisation in acquiring the necessary certifications through a collaborative approach — guiding you through the steps to protect your critical assets and deliver a much improved security posture. Netcompany is Cyber Essentials Plus and ISO27001 certified.
