Financial company going to Office 365

Office 365 for Business

I am working with a financial company helping them to move to Office 365. Office 365 is Microsoft’s cloud software used primarily for email services, Skype for instant messaging, OneDrive for file storage, as well as a few other applications. An Office 365 can also be licensed with a subscription to Office 2016 for your workstations.

For this organization going to Office 365 will allow them to remove the costly server hardware, software, storage and maintenance required for main supporting an email system in their data center. Their current system also lacked a lot of the features and functionality built into newer email systems, not to mention the integrated instant messaging and online storage.

After meeting to discuss their options it made sense for them to migrate their email to Office 365 and add on the Office 2016 licensing. With these products, they will always be running the latest and greatest applications and not have to deal with the updating, patching, maintaining, upgrading of these servers and their staff does not need training or have to be an expert on any of them. Their IT resources can be freed up to work on other projects and areas of the business.

Office 365 also brings much better availability. With everything running on redundant Microsoft servers, downtime is practically eliminated and email can be accessed from anywhere.

Their desktop Office client has not been updated for several versions. Adding the Office 2016 licenses (called Office 365 ProPlus) to their subscription allows each user to install Office on up to 5 devices. That can be their workstation, home PC, Mac, iPad, etc.

Office 365 is a great service and a very attractive service for all types of companies. Please contact me if you would like to discuss how your company could benefit by moving to the cloud.

What is Microsoft Azure and Why Use It?

What is Microsoft Azure and Why Use It?

What is Microsoft Azure?

Microsoft Azure is a collection of various cloud computing services, including remotely hosted and managed versions of proprietary Microsoft technologies, and open technologies, such as various Linux distributions deployable inside a virtual machine.

Why does Microsoft Azure matter?

Azure lacks upfront costs or an appreciable time delay in resource provisioning—capacity is available on demand. With a usage-based billing formula, Azure is a compelling option for enterprises transitioning from on-premise Windows servers to the cloud.

Who does Microsoft Azure affect?

Azure can be utilized at any scale, from a garage startup to a Fortune 500 company. Because of the ease of transition, organizations with an existing Windows Server deployment may find Azure to be best suited to their needs.

 

How do I get Microsoft Azure?

New users receive a $200 service credit good for 30 days when signing up for Microsoft Azure; the credit can be applied toward any Microsoft-provided service. Additional discounts and credits are available for startups, nonprofits, and universities.

Contact me if you would like to hear some more about Microsoft Azure and how it can help your business.

Department store chain going to Office 365

We started a new project this week migrating a very large, very popular department store chain to Office 365. This customer has decided that it takes too much time and resources to manage Exchange server email in their data centers, and they have decided to move all of their email data to Office 365 and Exchange Online. We will be synchronizing all of the Active Directory accounts to the cloud and setting up a hybrid server to migrate users mailboxes to Office 365 over time. Using a hybrid server approach will allow us to perform controlled, scheduled mailbox migrations over time with no impact to the users.

For this customer we will also be setting up multi-factor authentication. This means that when user use the web based email, they will get sent a TXT message to their smartphone. This is used in addition to the user name and password to prevent hackers who have obtained a users password from being able to login.

Such a terrific company to work with and a great project to be a part of. I am looking forward to it. Office 365 is a great solution for them.

Mac Repair – Virus Removal

Mac Repair – Virus RemovaliMac repair, virus removal

We are starting to see more viruses for Mac computers recently. Mac’s have been immune from viruses in the past but they are now becoming more prevalent. A friend asked me to take a look at their iMac this week that was hit with a ransomware virus. We were fortunate that we were able to remove the virus and recover most of the files that were hit.

The lesson to learn here is that it is imperative that we keep backups of our critical files on an external drive or with a backup service. When a virus like this hits, or if we have a major hardware failure, we can always reinstall the operating system but there may be no way to save your documents. You need to have regular backups running so that we have somewhere to go to recover these files.

 

 

Global Manufacturer is going to the cloud

A major Global Manufacturer is going to the cloud. I am starting a new project this week for a very large, international retail manufacturer. The company has decided that it wants to change its operations to be 100% cloud based. They have decided that Microsoft’s Office 365 will be the vendor platform to migrate too.

After a couple of meetings with the customer we have decided to start with email, OneDrive and SharePoint in Office 365. We will secure it all with Microsoft’s Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS). EMS provides InTune for managing mobile devices and also comes with Azure AD Premium. Between the two applications we will be able to lock down sign ins by user, device and location by taking advantage of conditional access.

On top of that we will be enabling self-service password resets, multi-factor authentication and the new AAD Connect with pass-through authentication and seamless sign-on. These last two will ensure that all user authentications happen to on-premise domain controllers and also allow users on the network to get into their applications, such as outlook, without having to enter their credentials again. The customer is very excited about this one!

So here goes another big company to the cloud! Let me know if your company is considering jumping on the bandwagon. It may not be a good fit for you or it may be a huge cost savings. Let’s sit down and discuss if it makes sense for your company.

Retail Store Point of Sales

Retail Store Point of Sales Long Island Computer

We recently helped out a local store with their main Retail Store Point of Sales application. Last year we rolled out a new POS system that has vastly improved their efficiency in checking in clients, generating service tickets and tracking customer history.  Business has been good and they have just opened their second location in a different town.

We worked with the company that created the application to get the same POS application installed in the new store and also the managers to see the schedules of both locations, as well as generate reports for both locations.

The new installation over the weekend consisted of a new computer, cash drawer, scanner, internet connection and some cabling. The data was then imported from the other store, updated some configuration items and setup access. The physical install itself took about half a day. It was the work done before hand – the planning, talking to the application people, working out a solution that met the customers requirements, and working with the internet provider – that took some time and effort. It was because of this planning and preparation that we were successful.

Call to Action

When it comes to your business, careful planning has to come first to get it done right and on time. Do not trust your critical business application and network to just any one. Please contact me for someone with experience in solving business computer IT needs. I make it a priority to understand your core business so that we can make sound decisions when it comes to your working on your computer system.
