Why Your Company Should Use a Microsoft Consultant

Why Your Company Should Use a Microsoft Consultant

Today, businesses face new challenges amidst economic uncertainty, changing market conditions and new consumer and employee expectations. This is compounding existing pressures to accelerate technological adoption to remain competitive and succeed in their respective industries.  

Microsoft, being one of the world’s foremost technology companies, provides a range of products and services that can help organizations achieve their goals. However, implementing and managing these solutions can be difficult, especially without the necessary expertise and resources.  

Microsoft consultants leverage their expertise and experience with Microsoft technologies to help organizations maximize the potential of their technology solutions to fully exploit the potential of their data, streamline operations, improve efficiency and agility, and meet their unique business objectives.  

By effectively selecting, implementing, and leveraging the right tools and technology solutions, organizations can explore new opportunities that position their business to grow alongside the pace of change.  

What are Microsoft Consultants? 

 

Microsoft consultants are outcome-driven specialists who provide businesses across all industries with the expertise, customized solutions, and ongoing support they need to efficiently navigate their digital transformation and modernization initiatives. 

Many U.S. companies are experiencing obstacles related to internal IT team layoffs. In 2022, over 93,000 technology jobs were cut due to growing inflation and the economic downtown, and this year another 131,000 tech workers have been laid off as of March.  

Organizations are attempting to fill in the capability gaps via options like hiring gig workers at full-time equivalent (FTE) hours. But this leaves a lot of room for error and often results in expensive project setbacks and stalled digitization initiatives due to limited skill sets and experience.  

Consequently, businesses are increasingly turning to dedicated specialists, like CloudServus, who are industry-recognized for efficiency and strategic core competencies. This enables them to acquire the expertise of a team of leading professionals who can successfully execute any given project at part-time hours. 

Microsoft consultants are typically acknowledged for: 

  • Expertise and experience: Microsoft consultants are experts in their field and have years of experience working with Microsoft technologies and products. They’re adept at working closely with organizations to identify the right solutions for their needs and ensure that the solutions are implemented effectively. 
  • Customized solutions: As every company has unique needs and requirements, a Microsoft consultant can deliver solutions that are tailored to address those specific needs. This includes understanding the business’s goals, challenges and workflows, and developing solutions that meet these requirements. 
  • Increased efficiency: Microsoft consultants can help businesses optimize their processes and workflows, which can result in enhanced efficiency and productivity. By implementing the appropriate technology solutions, organizations can then streamline their operations and automate repetitive tasks, enabling their resources to be deployed towards more important initiatives. 
  • Cost savings: Businesses can save money in the long run by ensuring their solutions are implemented correctly the first time around. This can reduce the need for costly rework or fixing issues down the line, and can help companies avoid investing in unnecessary or ineffective solutions.  
  • Ongoing support: Specialized consultants can deliver continuous support and maintenance for a business’s solutions, ensuring that they are always up-to-date with the latest technologies and best practices. They can also provide training, resources and knowledge transfer sessions to help businesses and their teams get the most out of their Microsoft solutions. 

Let’s say a business wants to modernize their workplace and equip their employees with the right tools to support an agile work experience. Microsoft consultants can help determine if a solution like Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) or Virtual Private Network (VDN) is best for their hybrid or remote work model and business strategy.  

Consultants can also reduce the disruption that arises while setting up and managing the solution, and ensure the business is able to gain the complete advantages of performance, scalability, cost savings, optimized user experience, and security associated with a solution like Cloud VDI, for example. 

Benefits of Working with Microsoft Consultants 

 

Microsoft consultants typically provide a number of different services that are in tune with the rapidly changing and diversifying technology landscape and the corresponding business challenges that emerge from this disruption.  

Many businesses adopt Microsoft technologies to resolve these pain points, but can struggle with the monolithic approach to software development as its products have traditionally been designed to work together with the goal of creating a seamless, consistent user experience across its suite of products. If a business is implementing a newer product with someone who is just figuring it out as they go, they ultimately end up experiencing problems long-term. 

For instance, organizations are increasingly seeking centralized approaches to managing security in a distributed work environment punctuated by more endpoint devices and device types. Microsoft recently launched Intune Suite, in addition to two eagerly anticipated Intune Suite additions, as a unified endpoint management solution.  

Organizations wanting to strengthen compliance, reduce risk and streamline device and app management via this updated toolset can use Microsoft consultancy services to ensure it’s successfully implemented into their existing environment 

Essentially, a Microsoft consultancy can help organizations realize their goals related to their technology infrastructure, systems and processes in key areas: 

  • Digital transformation: Developing and executing a digital transformation strategy that leverages Microsoft technologies and solutions to drive growth, efficiency and innovation. 
  • Cloud migration: Moving their IT infrastructure and applications to the cloud to reduce costs, increase scalability and flexibility, and improve security and governance. 
  • Business intelligence and analytics: Leveraging Microsoft Power BI and other tools to derive actionable insights from their data, improve decision-making and drive better business outcomes. 
  • Modern workplace: Designing and implementing a modern workplace strategy that enables remote work, collaboration, and productivity using tools like Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, and OneDrive. 
  • Application development: Building custom applications using Microsoft technologies, like .NET, Azure, and Dynamics 365 to enhance efficiency, automate processes and accelerate innovation. 
  • Infrastructure optimization: Optimizing infrastructures and systems, including server migration, security and compliance, and disaster recovery planning.  
  • Knowledge transfer: Providing knowledge transfer sessions to help maximize the value of Microsoft investments, increase user adoption, and troubleshoot areas as they arise. 

Moreover, Microsoft consultants have a robust understanding of industry trends and best practices, allowing them to provide innovative and efficient solutions to complex business problems. They often work with teams across an organization, providing guidance and collaborating to ensure that Microsoft solutions are integrated and functioning as intended.
