It is composed of well-defined building blocks where the relevant products, features and solutions offered by the leading vendors are matched to the customers technical and business needs.

ENHANCE YOUR BUSINESS THROUGH MICROSOFT SERVICES

Microsoft Experts of ITQAN has recently optimized the workflow of an organization providing hospitality services for the Government and Defense Entities.
“We were looking for something that would enable agility within our business, that would accelerate our business processes and expansion within certain regions where we didn’t have enormous facilities and so required smaller offices,” the Customer recalls. ITQAN is an expert in Microsoft Cloud technologies - its migration strategy provided appropriate training while minimizing the downtime and avoiding user problems.

Pain-free migration
As existing Microsoft software was up-to-date, user-client migration of 30–50 people/day was straightforward with no disturbance. No new hardware was needed. “We were expecting it to last much longer and expecting additional difficulties, which we didn’t see,” says the Customer.

Easier administration
Administration interfaces are simple for O365, with little need for programming skills in PowerShell management framework or for advanced knowledge to move outlook users to the cloud. For end-users, familiarity with other Microsoft products meant that training was needed only for Lync and Outlook. Yammer was accepted easily because of familiarity with other social networks.
