Planning service Yes
How the planning service works Azure Planning Services from Nexus can help your organisation evaluate and plan your cloud based Microsoft Azure implementation.

Microsoft Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform that enables organisations to quickly build, deploy, and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters.

Our qualified and experienced Azure consultants can help organisations to plan and manage entire projects or simply assist in-house IT teams to identify their approach and strategy. We can outline all of the computer hardware, data storage, software licensing, development, hosting and deployment services which organisations might need to meet their objectives.

How the training service works Investment in IT can be rendered useless if your employees are not equipped with the correct skills to utilise the technology. We can customise Microsoft Azure deployment and training programmes to suit the operational and budgetary restrictions of any organisation.

We know how critical it is to have stable IT systems that integrate with your day-to-day business processes. Efficiency is an essential part of a successful organisation and it's a proven fact that effective Azure training not only equips individuals with the skills to be more productive, but also promotes confidence and loyalty. Your most valuable asset is your skilled workforce.
