“It became clear that Microsoft 365 would be the best solution for Alpha as we continue to grow. We also immediately felt that Virtuoso were completely aligned with how we wanted to progress as a business, and we trusted their experience to help us move away from problematic, legacy infrastructure like the server, and to embrace the Microsoft cloud – all with their support.” Jeff Baskett, Technology Manager
For Alpha, there were numerous benefits in moving to Microsoft 365 Business. Not only does it allow for file data to be stored securely in Microsoft 365, but devices can also be enrolled in Azure Active Directory. This enabled the removal of the server, which had been acting as File Server and Domain Controller.
With a few other small changes, the on-premise solution could be decommissioned, and the risk of recurring issues removed. Furthermore, with file data hosted in SharePoint, users in overseas offices no longer had to rely on inelegant VPN connection to access key business data.
