Office 365 – Planning and Migration Services

Office 365 expertly orchestrated by ISC.

ISC specializes in implementing cloud-based systems for businesses that need to keep IT systems modernized and operating effectively. We assess your IT systems and provide you a roadmap to help your organization realize the benefits of cloud computing. We migrate IT workloads to the cloud, then we help you keep those systems operating at peak effectiveness for cost, performance, reliability, and usability.

ISC is a direct reseller via the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider program.  Many customers subscribe to Microsoft cloud platforms with ISC and enjoy the benefits of pay-as-you-go, pay for what you use computing.  The additional benefit of working with a reseller that understands and supports those platforms can be invaluable.

ISC’s Gold level credentials reflect success in delivering cloud solutions.  Microsoft recognizes ISC as a valuable partner, recently writing to a customer:

ISC has a strong track record of successful Office 365 implementations and also belongs to an exclusive Microsoft Partner Program at the highest competency level.  I know you will be impressed with their technical aptitude and professionalism.”

Cloud Onboarding

Onboarding includes migrating IT systems to the cloud and deploying new IT systems in the cloud. The industry refers to each IT system as a “workload.” Many onboarding activities are called “migrations.” A common onboarding project is migration to Office 365, which includes deployment of the selected Office 365 features and migration of email and SharePoint content from legacy platforms to Office 365.

Management Services

Once a workload is migrated to or deployed in the cloud, it requires ongoing management.  This is true for all types of workloads although the time, resources and capabilities to manage one workload can vary greatly from that of another.  For example, we have a standard management service offering for IaaS deployments that include virtual networks and virtual machines.  This service includes continuous monitoring, critical alert response, scheduled operating system updates, backup, and reporting.  For an Office 365 Exchange Only customer, a management service will include user and license management and second tier help desk support.

Focus on The Microsoft Cloud

ISC’s exclusive focus on delivering services related to The Microsoft Cloud helps reduce complexity and obstacles that others struggle to overcome. Our success with cloud onboarding projects is a big reason for our overall success as a cloud solution provider. We continuously refine our processes, management strategies, technical approaches, tools, templates, roles and responsibilities, and technology to meet the rapidly changing demands of IT in the cloud. It requires substantial learning, coordination, and dedication.
