June 2018 Roundup

June 2018 Roundup

For many organisations the 30th of June signals the end of the financial year. This also means that IT teams are finalising their strategic plans, roadmaps and budgets based on business plans. Often the “What” that is going to be done, is easy to define, but the “How” is a lot harder. This is further complicated by the release cadence of new technology with Cloud Services. For example, Azure Managed Instance wasn’t an option for deploying SQL Server this time last year.

If you are trying to work out how you will modernise your Data Platform and introduce Advanced Analytics into your plans for FY19, then WARDY IT Solutions is offering a complimentary whiteboard session to help you define the “How”.

Contact us today to take advantage of this offer.
