Prospective clients considering on premise to cloud transition projects for messaging and collaboration, are often steered by solution vendors, using a traditional partner introduction approach to one of their enterprise partners.
Our main expertise is helping organisations to understand and evaluate Microsoft's Office 365 and Google for Work.
At its onset Ingensys made a strategic decision not to become an enterprise partner of any cloud solution vendors, instead to offer an unbiased consultancy service, and pass on the benefit of the savings to clients.
Ingensys have therefore, created an alternative offering for clients to consider - by working as a subject matter expert, within the clients own internal project team, the clients budget and best interests are our main priority, rather than the need to maximise revenues for solution partners.
Effectively placing a truly independent expert within your team, before you engage with a cloud vendor and their enterprise partners, can significantly reduce the requirement for expensive outsourced transition services.
Working as your internal resource, alongside or encompassing the role of your project / programme manager, engaging either directly with the cloud service vendor, or with its nominated enterprise partner, we ensure that the critical elements of technical design and also crucially, business awareness, communication, training and support are made available 'in house'.
The bottom line? Having the relevant skills and experience within your team not only has a significant effect in ensuring a successful, orderly migration but also results in a dramatic lowering of overall migration costs.
