Bridge the IT gap

Since 2020, digital transformation has moved at a pace never seen before, and the gap between traditional and modern IT is now larger than ever. For some, it might seem their competitors and customers are too advanced in their cloud journeys for them to ever be caught up with.

Fortunately, a solution exists that allows IT teams to move to a modern workplace at a pace that’s right for them, enhancing productivity, collaboration and security without abandoning legacy infrastructure until it is no longer needed.

Our new eBook introduces you to Microsoft 365 and how it can help you to bridge the gap between your classic and modern IT with Microsoft 365.

Classic vs Modern. Why not both?

Historically, migration to a modern workplace meant risking the loss of your tried and tested IT for something new and unknown. With Microsoft 365, you don’t have to choose between the old and the new.


Modern IT

The demands on IT are incredible. IT needs to be able to support multiple device platforms in a cloud-managed way, all while driving automation to reduce costs and, most importantly, improving the experience for the end users. It ultimately falls on your IT team to make all of that happen.

Classic IT

But the reality is we are also still living in a world of classic or traditional IT. And there is real tension here. IT departments have built themselves around the traditional PC lifecycle, managing images, controlling updates, locking down behaviour and protecting users. And so IT must evolve and adapt.

Your IT

We don’t think this should be an either/or. The Microsoft 365 approach is to allow you to do both, and to modernise at your own pace, to manage risk in a smart way. To take advantage of the cloud and modern IT, but also give you the tools and capabilities to bring that design point to your existing investments so you aren’t throwing everything out.
