Microsoft 365 Consultancy
Through Technology provides expert consultancy to help organisations through the transition to Microsoft 365 (Office 365, Windows 10 and Enterprise Mobility). We have recently provided solution leadership and architecture support to the UK Ministry of Justice to support their migration of 40,000 users from Windows XP to Microsoft 365, across over 1,000 sites and numerous business units.
With decades of experience in infrastructure transformation, we know how to manage this change whilst maintain access to and modernising the legacy ICT that so often holds these changes back.
We also provide the expertise to help with the broader challenges of Microsoft 365 adoption, where we can support user research, procurement, contract negotiation, technical implementation, solution assurance, migration process assurance, deployment process assurance. adoption & change management, training and various other services.
This service is now available through the HM Government G-Cloud 10 Framework for public sector clients or through direct contract to the private sector.
Government Email Security
GCF Exit Services
Do you need assurance of your programme or service? Whether it is delivered by a supplier or internal team, for critical or high-value work independent assurance provides confidence that things are on track or progressing on a defined path to rectifying any issues.
We have a proven and pragmatic approach to technology and delivery assurance built from years of experience.
Do you need help integrating and delivering solutions from multiple suppliers?
Solution Leadership means standing at the front as our customer's voice. We augment your team with the expertise to enable and direct the delivery of a complex integrated and fit for purpose solution and to hold your major suppliers to account. At any stage of a project and in any context.
Disaggregation & Multi-Source
Disaggregation and multi-source arrangments are starting to replace big systems integration contracts.
At their best, these models help drive competition, innovation and reduced risk of supplier failures. At their worst, they split IT provision into multiple dependent parts, placing the delivery and integration risks (and costs) in the lap of the customer.
We are experts in delivering complex multi-source programmes.
Phishing (impersonation of others to gather company or personal information) is the most prevalent form of hacking. We specialise in improving email security, introducing tools such as DMARC, SPF, and DKIM, along with user education campaigns, email sanitisation and monitoring to reduce exposure to phishing. These standards are mandatory in UK Government and just common sense in the private sector as they protect not only your staff and business, but those of the organisations with whom you work.
Azure & Microsoft 365 Managed Services
Managed Services aren't about the technology; they are about people and relationships.
At Through Technology, we build excellent relationships with our customers. Not just delivering an excellent service but continually seeking ways to optimise it or better leverage the technology to meet our customers' needs and with a unique way of measuring our impact.
(Technical excellence comes as standard).
The UK Government Convergence Framework (GCF) provides email relay, DNS, peer-to-peer and other services to the UK Public Sector.
The Government Digital Services strategy is to bring this contract to an end whilst it continues to be extended in the short-term to enable exit.
Having already helped the Ministry of Justice and Department of Work & Pensions move over 200,000 users off GCF Services. We are the leading supplier for this work.
Office 365 Transition, Optimisation, Security & Compliance
Through Technology led one of the first large-scale Office 365 deployments in UK Government.
Having mastered the challenges of large complex migrations our focus is now on driving customer-value from Office 365. Helping organisations customers ensure they are getting the best from the optimised, fully leveraged and automated solutions possible with Enterprise licensing.
Insource Transition Support
Increasingly, our customers are finding that the agility and control offered by cloud services mean that the scale of a big IT partner has become a hindrance to service and innovation, not a help.
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.
Cloud Archiving & Compliance
With our partner Archive360, we offer solutions to reduce the cost of SaaS licensing and cloud storage whilst ensuring legislative and industry-specific compliance.
Not only can we archive your cloud service data. We can also provide a temporary repository for your dormant SaaS accounts, providing significant license savings and a seamless user experience for those on Long Term Absence.
File Analysis & Migration
Do you actually know what data is stored in your old file shares:
- Which data is still relevant?
- Which should have been deleted?
- Which must be retained for compliance.
- Which data should have retention policies.
We offer file analysis and migration services to understand your data, ensure compliance, simplify migration and reduce the cost of storage services.
Application Migration & Refactoring
When migrating applications, you can migrate (lift and shift), then refactor the application to make optimal use of cloud services, or do both in sequence.
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.
If you need an impartial, vendor-neutral partner to deliver or guide your application migration and modernisation strategy, please get in touch.
Client Software & User-created application 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.
