Where are you on your Cloud Journey?

At String we recognise that the Cloud is not a single destination.  It encompasses years of innovation and ‘as-a-Service’ consumption models as varied as they are complex.  We also recognise that every client is different when it comes to their cloud needs.

So, how’s your ‘Cloud Strategy’ going?  Do you even have one?

If not then you could always find a solutions partner to help you; however, in our experience, their advice will tend to take one of two forms:

Rebrand an on-premises solution as ‘hybrid’ or ’private’ cloud and hope for the best


Try to crowbar you into an unsuitable cloud-only solution

For this reason we’ve simplified the idea of the cloud journey by combining the myriad of choices into three simple areas: productivity & engagement; platforms & places and security & continuity.

To help you on your cloud journey, our String 365 services are designed to keep your IT function closely aligned to your organisation’s business strategy, letting you do what you do best.  From design and build, to Microsoft Support services; we have you covered at each stage.
