At Through Technology, we offer expertise to help insource services from these large suppliers. Supporting commercial and management teams to make the change whilst providing interim technical expertise to reduce service risk during the transition.

Application Development & Management
Agile Cloud & Application Development
We provide application development expertise through individual developers, agile teams or on an outcomes basis. Working on hybrid, cloud or multi-cloud solutions best suited to our customer needs and across both AWS and Azure. Our teams follow Agile development practices and align to both industry and UK Government standards such as the Technology Code of Practice.
Cloud Application Migration
When migrating applications, you can migrate (lift and shift), then refactor the application to make optimal use of cloud services, do both in sequence, or shift to a hybrid or multi-cloud approach where your applications require.
It depends on what outcomes you are looking for as the customer. Suppliers and vendors often favour lift and shift as it is quick to achieve (and bill). However, it is often just "kicking the can down the road" and can result in more expensive operating costs than on-premise solutions and fewer benefits.
If you need an impartial, vendor-neutral partner to deliver or guide your application migration and modernisation strategy, please get in touch.
Client Software Readiness & Remediation
Moving away from traditional, on-premise managed End User Devices and Services requires a strategy and process to manage your client software and user-created applications. Either modernising them, or presenting as-is to your new devices.
Talk to us about the strategy, process, and service to manage one of the main challenges of IT modernisation.
Microsoft Power Platform Services
Microsoft Power Platform is an area of strong focus for Microsoft, with ambitions to use it to move Teams from a hub for collaboration, to the core platform for your business.
Whilst that is ambitious, the combination of ready access to corporate data in Office365 and other vendor products, PowerBI, Power Apps and Power Automate provide Microsoft customers with a powerful suite of tools to build and manage their own systems with a "low code" approach.
In 2020 Through Technology automated many of our business processes using Power Platform, providing the efficiency we needed as a growing business and leveraging the data and licensing we'd already procured in 365.
If you are looking to build simple applications, develop your raw data into valuable business information or simply automate processes and drive efficiency, with tools you can manage within your organisation, then please get in touch.
Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
ML and AI are currently in a "Buzzword boom" with lots of organisations leaping into projects to try and drive efficiencies and gain competitive advantage.
We aim to help our customers apply AI, ML and process automation solutions effectively to your business problems and data. Starting with assessment of where and whether these technologies can be utilised, through business case development before proceeding into the implementation lifecycle and measurable benefit realisation.
