“Bravo partners with Atech to help us achieve our vision and business goals. Having worked with other MSP’s in the past there really is no comparison. What impressed me the most about Atech was the service they delivered, they’re experts within Microsoft cloud technology and they always deliver on time and on budget”
Roy Eden, Chief Operations Officer, Bravo Investments Limited
Bravo Investment Limited, specialise in delivering exceptional returns by transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary, managing over 1 million sq. Ft of residential, commercial and hospitality assets, and a strong track record of delivering results time and time again. Their experienced team adapts to constantly evolving markets and trends, looking for opportunities to add value whether through unlocking complex sites, turning around distressed assets, or applying innovative financing solutions.
Productivity in the Cloud
Bravo needed to improve the performance of its legacy on-premise infrastructure, which was previously hosted at their London head office. With ageing infrastructure and regular performance issues causing an impact to the service delivered to its users who performed business functions on a daily basis, Bravo recognised that there was a need for change within the business and this was the first phase of a new digital transformation program.
The company’s mission is to be a global organisation that constantly stays a step ahead of the competition with innovation and creativity. This was a key driver when creating the digital transformation strategy to align the company goals and objectives with their technology digital transformation roadmap.
To support their vision, they needed a 21st century intelligent cloud platform. Having been through a selection process, they carried out a detailed assessment of other public cloud providers, and it was clear from the start that Microsoft Azure offered the best technology for today. In addition, Azure aligned with the technology roadmap of the business.
Delivering the lowest risk path to cloud adoption whilst accelerating digital transformation
By selecting Atech as the partner of choice for their Azure migration, Bravo managed to reduce the risk of migrating to the cloud through the experience and expertise shown by Atech. Atech had a clear strategy and migration plan that followed four key phases leading to the successful migration.
- Phase One – Technical workshop held with Bravo to gather and understand their requirements.
- Phase Two – Technical project plan and business case created including ROI for the project.
- Phase Three – Proof of concept created, with full User Acceptance Testing (UAT) carried out to mitigate disruption.
- Phase Four – Implementation of the migration plan, delivered seamlessly with minimal business impact.
Utilising the Microsoft Cloud to deliver Agility and Stability
After the successful migration to the Microsoft cloud, Bravo now have a full highly available platform, delivering SLAs of 99.95%. The environment is designed to allow for global expansion, with multiple offices throughout the UK. Atech implemented the solution to allow the business to collaborate and share resources at a low cost. The technology vision was always to deliver a single platform.
The next step on the roadmap is to introduce the modern desktop, using the available features in Microsoft 365, we plan to migrate all files and folders to SharePoint and OneDrive and implement governance and security through EMS and Windows 10.
The ongoing support from Atech comes as standard 24x7x365, maintained and managed by our team of Microsoft certified professionals, whilst delivering service and optimisation as part of quarterly reviews. This enables Bravo to receive a detailed overview of all new releases from Microsoft in the previous quarter to help improve their new cloud platform. Discussions also take place on any general releases in Azure and Microsoft 365 over the same period along with recommendations for future improvements which can be made from a technical, service or cost optimisation perspective. This enables Bravo to have a continuous influx of new technology advice and service improvements whilst benefiting from the value being delivered by Atech.
