New Signature’s Azure services are designed to help organisations rapidly onboard and consume Microsoft Azure infrastructure services. Aimed at businesses with an existing Azure commitment which they have yet to take up, or those about to make a commitment and wishing to onboard immediately, ‘Azure On’ and ‘Azure Foundation’ provide a perfect instrument to help the business move rapidly towards its goals and benefit from either an initial “starter” instance or fully operational Azure environment.


Azure ‘On’

The ‘Azure On’ draws on New Signature’s years of experience, standardised Azure designs and IP (intellectual property) to get you up and running with your starter Azure environment, which can be used for pilots or development activities. At every stage of the engagement, our Azure experts will “show and guide” you through the set-up of your environment, provide knowledge transfer to the in-house team and familiarisation training of the Azure Management Portal to ensure efficient ongoing management.


Azure ‘Foundation’

For those businesses wanting to step straight into an operationally-ready Azure environment, ‘Azure Foundation’ experience takes you a step further. The engagement starts with a comprehensive workshop at which New Signature experts will review current Azure needs, help define an end state architecture and build out your “production-graded” environment in Azure – an environment ready to host your apps and workloads. Again, working in partnership with your internal teams to ensure knowledge transfer at every stage, you’ll be ready to engage the business and start consuming Azure services immediately.
