WORLD OF CLOUD

Altron has positioned itself to help its customers to succeed, by offering numerous ways to engage with and assist them in driving forward their digital transformation journey.

As the foundation upon which any successful digitisation strategy is built, Cloud is now playing an increasingly important role in laying the platform for businesses to move their digital transform journeys along, helping them to improve performance, efficiency, reliability and cost-effectiveness.

With a solid track record in technology migrations, including comprehensive skills and certifications with leading providers of cloud, software-defined networking and storage solutions, we are positioned to assist customers to meet the challenges of modernising their infrastructure.In achieving this, we assist our customers in making their transition to a cloud-first strategy both as seamless as possible, and ensuring it is accomplished without compromising on performance, reliability, or cost-effectiveness.

At Altron, we can assist clients with all forms of cloud migration, be it a public, private or hybrid model, or even a multi-cloud strategy. To this end, we have Altron Karabina, which is a Microsoft-focused cloud business unit, and Altron Systems Integration, which provides cloud services outside of the Microsoft stable.

Cloud Infrastructure

Although cloud environments are highly reliable, scalable and always available, the fact remains that moving from in-house systems to a cloud environment or even a hybrid solution, can be a daunting project for a business. Altron is the ideal partner to help you automate, scale, innovate and provide agility to your business.

Capacity Optimisation

This approach is all about assisting customers to optimise existing capacity, while also guarding against stranded capacity – which is capacity that has been paid for, but is nonetheless under-utilised. Our experienced teams can ensure complete and thorough optimisation of all capacity across the business.

Data Centre as a Service (DCaaS)

In a digital world, IT and the data centre no longer needs to be the owner of the infrastructure – instead it simply needs to be an agile provider of service outcomes. This dovetails perfectly with adopting a data centre as a service (DCaaS) model, where the role of IT and the data centre is to deliver the right service, at the right pace, from the right provider, and at the right price.

Extended Infrastructure Management

The modern data centre is no longer the sole source of IT infrastructure, giving way instead to a hybrid of on-premise, co-location, hosting and public and private cloud solutions. These elements are being combined under the banner of ‘Extended Infrastructure Management’, which focuses on providing business-enabling services and outcomes, rather than on physical infrastructure.

Our purpose is focused on enabling our customers to move to the cloud, in order to help them to accelerate their business success. We are driven by client intimacy, passionate people, innovative solutions, contract flexibility and thought leadership that helps eliminate technical complexity. Altron Systems Integration is a talent-rich partner that strives to consistently exceed client expectations. Adopting the cloud can help you to stay ahead of changing IT needs, while at the same time saving costs and improving IT performance is critical for all businesses today.

From storage, NAS, SAN and app consolidation, to server virtualisation and backup, recovery and archiving, we assist CIOs to overcome their biggest challenges and primary pain points, including:

Application proliferation, and infrastructure bloat and under-utilisation
Complex management leading to low productivity
Excessive downtime and inability to cost-effectively meet required service levels and keep critical data accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
Long lead times to deploy new workloads or to scale existing applications
Long backup windows and complicated restore processes that keep customers waiting, which costs time and money

Microsoft Azure

In the past, many organisations would run business critical systems on their own hardware or in their company data centre. The shift to a digital approach, however, means that this is no longer necessary. Gone are the days of companies struggling with unreliable or unavailable systems, or with ageing hardware. In an era of shrinking budgets and increasingly-costly-to-replace hardware, the opportunities presented by the cloud are too big to ignore.

Among these are lower total cost of ownership, more rapid deployments, improved security, elasticity in terms of performance and storage, compliance with local and global data regulations (GDPR + POPI), faster upgrades and updates, a reduced strain on internal IT resources and disaster recovery and uptime that is well over 99%.

Altron Karabina is able to help you transform your business by seizing the opportunities presented by the cloud, through the implementation of Microsoft Azure, it’s services and capabilities. We can create a cloud strategy that makes business sense, backed up by a robust Cloud Governance Framework that will guide you in adopting, governing and securing the cloud – whether this be in an application development scenario or the adoption of cloud infrastructure.

Furthermore, we will help your business to decide on the best way to put your cloud strategy in place. This includes providing a complete view of workloads that can be moved to the cloud; a cost analysis to fully understand both current spend and future spend; and the ability to migrate even the most complex workloads to the Azure cloud without any downtime, disruption of service or data loss, in a cost effective and methodical way.

We also offer a Cloud Managed Service that turbo-charges single or multi-cloud environments, deliver modern applications that can be easily and cost-effectively built, maintained and designed in a manner to allow them to be able to meet changing business needs and requirements in the future, and can assist with system-to-system integrations by leveraging Microsoft Azure-based technologies.

We will help you from the assessment phase, through the development of a migration plan, the actual migration itself, and on to the validation stage, where we ensure your apps are all working, following the migration. Finally, we assist with optimisation, where we undertake continuous cloud health monitoring to maximise performance and cut costs.

Dynamics 365

A cloud-based enterprise software platform, bundling ERP, CRM and HCM products alongside Power BI reporting functions in one streamlined, unified package, Dynamics 365 is a set of interconnected, modular Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications and services designed to both transform and enable your core customers, employees, and business activities.

By integrating the data, business logic, and processes of your company’s CRM and ERP capabilities, Dynamics 365 eliminates silos and instead offers automated, integrated, and intelligent sales and marketing capabilities that efficiently connect, prioritise, and convert leads into paying customers.

Built on Microsoft Azure, which offers both a trusted platform and a broad ecosystem of services, and natively integrated with Microsoft 365’s productivity apps, Dynamics 365 offers a unified way to manage users and services in a way that allows you to start with what you need, and grow at your own pace, adding new apps and functionalities as and when these are required.

Dynamics 365 allows your business to create impact faster and deliver more value in less time, by quickly adopting new solutions—or augmenting existing ones—to enable your teams to accelerate results. Furthermore, because it uses modular, pre-built applications, you can easily connect Dynamics 365 applications with the systems and tools you already use to add to and extend your capabilities. It also ensures that you can connect solutions end-to-end, thereby accelerating your business growth with connected business applications, which help you to optimise your operations, innovate across teams, and better engage customers.

Dynamics 365 applications are made to work together—and with your existing systems—for a comprehensive solution that connects your entire business. So you connect with every customer.
