An inadequate and obsolete infrastructure…
Ediciones Urano has been growing throughout the years, managing its business through an intranet based on SharePoint On-Premises. Due to obsolescence and performance problems, they have decided to modernize their infrastructure to enable fast and reliable access to the corporate environment, guarantee security under the Zero Trust principles and have a scalable solution.
Zooming in on the problem of an obsolete infrastructure, it generates:
Access difficulties and low performance due to saturation of the corporate network and certain applications, leading to a significant loss of productivity as users cannot make efficient use of applications and services.
Technical problems that require the IT department to invest a high volume of resources in the maintenance of the platform when there are much simpler and more flexible alternatives available on the market with better performance.
A high security risk, increasing security gaps and leaving the door open to cyber threats.
Azure Virtual Desktop: a flexible, secure and scalable infrastructure
Driven by the organization’s commitment to enhancing hybrid work securely and improving the user experience to increase productivity, Ediciones Urano relies on Softeng for support in terms of infrastructure modernization, including management, planning, configuration and coordination.
As specialists in Microsoft cloud solutions , Softeng recommends replacing the legacy SharePoint service and remote access with Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) and SharePoint in IaaS, obtaining a flexible, scalable and secure infrastructure based on the Azure cloud, which eliminates all the complexities and inefficiencies presented by previous solutions to enable remote work, and makes IT management as simple as possible.
Increased user productivity, improving application performance and the user experience.
Increased security and reliability of the virtual desktop environment, minimizing the risks of external attacks involving service outages, data encryption and/or ransomware, among other consequences.
Increased scalability and flexibility to be able to administer and manage user demand for remote desktops in an agile and cost-effective manner.
Giving the IT department more autonomy and simplifying the management of the environment by relieving them of platform maintenance tasks in order to focus on the tasks that add the most value.
The opinion of Ediciones Urano:
“With Softeng we have managed to meet project expectations while meeting the planned timings and simplifying IT management. We would like to highlight their high technological knowledge of the Microsoft cloud and, above all, their proactive support model when it comes to recommending decisions during the process with solid arguments, and providing us with the agility and flexibility we need when faced with changes in the company’s priorities or needs.”
