Facing platform ‘end of life’ issues – along with increasing pressures to digitise processes, increase profitability, and innovate on product and service – organisations are finding that Data Platform Modernisation projects for both on-premise and cloud environments can deliver significant value by enabling IT cost reductions, improving service levels, and increasing agility.

An effective Platform Modernisation project factors in a combination of architecture refreshing, ongoing software upgrades, and targeted application remediation to deliver a platform that offers the optimum combination of TCO, performance, and business innovation.

Microsoft, DSP and Softcat together offer proven approaches to modernisation projects. We ensure rapid delivery at minimum risk while maximising the value that is returned to the business in terms of enhanced capability at low cost.

 Why attend the event?

Our workshop offers all attendees the opportunity to learn from experienced and renowned experts. They will provide real examples of how customers have delivered significant cost savings and enhanced business outcomes.
