Provoke delivers Microsoft cloud transformation

Over the last year Provoke has worked hand in hand with Microsoft technical experts to reimagine our approach to cloud digital transformations. We have combined our many years of Azure expertise with Microsoft best practices to develop products that range from:

  • Consulting on best practice on implementing and adopting the Azure platform, focussing on platform governance, security, cost management and deployment planning.
  • App modernisation of legacy application onto modern platforms with a strong focus on DevOps processes and automation.
  • Support and hosting, providing expertise and resources to help customers manage their applications in Azure.
  • Migration services that reduce operating costs with minimal downtime.

Azure Migrate

Azure Migrate from Provoke helps businesses get safely and securely to the Cloud while maximizing existing application, virtual machine, and data technology investments. We see this as the first step to unlocking the power of the cloud. Provoke’s team of Cloud Architects, Engineers and Developers will help you every step of the way, providing peace of mind during your business transformation activities.

The Provoke team will assess your current environments, people, and processes to define a tailored migration approach. This approach will include setting up your Azure platform’s monitoring, security and governance models, and upskilling of your internal team. As part of the migration, workloads will be refactored to be cloud optimized and cost-effective.
