Moving to the Cloud?

The Platform You Might Not Have Considered

by Patrick Renzi | 05.26.16

If you looked out of the window today, you’d probably see a large assortment of clouds. Clouds of all different types, shapes, and sizes. There are cirrus clouds, cumulus clouds, public clouds, and hybrid clouds; but do you see your cloud? Is it light, fast moving, and flexible? Is it dark, erratic, and unpredictable? Chances are you don’t know yet, and there is nothing wrong with this sentiment. You manage IT in a very real business, with very real concerns. But with the proper plan in place, you can ensure that utilizing the hyper scalability, flexibility, and efficiency of Microsoft’s Cloud Platform will be as smooth a transition as it can be.

Office 365 Transition Potholes

Avoid Obstacles on the Road to Success

by Patrick Renzi | 05.18.16

It’s a question I get asked just about every time I speak to someone regarding Office 365. What questions should I be asking about the transition? What should I look out for? What is going to happen that I am not expecting? Well that’s the thing: not knowing what to expect makes it awfully hard to plan what to do when it happens. But what if you had a Magic 8-Ball? Something that could warn you of what might happen, before it does. Sadly, such a device doesn’t exist. But where there is no magic, there is Connection—armed with the experts to help you find the answers you’re looking for. Let’s start with some things about Office 365 that may not be completely advertised.

Out with the Old—All of It!

It IS Broke—Time to Fix IT

by Patrick Renzi | 01.14.16

In today's technology, advice from your grandfather rarely applies. The old, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," homily? That may have applied to wagon wheels, but not Windows Active Directory (AD). Today, what's not moving forward IS broken, and authentication needs the newest and best tools available to remain secure.

The Next Step to Your Cloud-Enabled Enterprise

by Patrick Renzi | 01.04.16

In this day and age, cloud services can no longer be considered a niche product. We have officially moved into a realm where the public and hybrid cloud are essential tools for any modern business. Today’s world demands standardization across platforms, fast performance, and scalability of all services. Cloud delivers those capabilities—and it’s hard to imagine going back to a time when that functionality wasn’t there. Whether your main focus is the end users who work within your organization or the clients who drive your bottom line, you simply cannot run a successful business without enabling easy access to your apps and services.
