Rapid Cloud Activation Service
Azure Jumpstart
Rapid Activation on a Stable Future Foundation

Service Overview

Your organization may be convinced of the value of Azure, but lack of experience about which applications to move and when can paralyze any cloud strategy before it gets started. Using Softchoice's Jumpstart service, you'll navigate the onboarding process more easily to unlock the transformational potential of Azure.

Jumpstart provides a rapid activation path based on best practices so you can build an operational, scalable, and secure cloud environment. The service also offers your teams the support they need - from planning and implementation to knowledge transfer and closure - to build a foundation for ongoing management and future expansion.

Who should be involved?

We recommend assembling a cross functional IT team with a senior sponsor to provide alignment to the issues, business drivers and guide prioritization.
