Azure FastTrack program

What is the Azure FastTrack?

The Azure FasTrack program is ICS’s 4 step methodology designed to help customers move quickly and easily through the Azure selection and pilot process with a smooth path to full deployment. 

 


The process helps you decide if Azure is right for you and then proves the assumptions via a pilot and limited deployment.  Once the business and technology case has been proven the Enhance phase helps you to identify which areas of your business would benefit from Azure leading to the production of a comprehensive execution plan for business approval.

 

 

​Assess:

What the likely costs and timescales are?  That’s where the Azure Assessment Accelerator comes in,  The Assessment is designed to help organisations remove the guesswork and quickly get the answers needed to make an informed decision about Microsoft Azure.

 

The ICS Azure Assessment Accelerator is the first of 4 stages of the Azure Fastrack program which helps clients Accelerate the internal investigation of Azure prior to the pilot stage – the Accelerator provides the following:

  • Private Tailored Transform the Datacentre Immersion Experience to understand  and explore Windows Azure
  • Assessment of application environments and identification of business and technical requirements to establish fit and suitability to your current IT environment
  • Pilot solution architecture based upon requirements and current environment
  • Licence and service cost estimates
  • Business case information 
  • Next step recommendations with plan
