Digital & Cloud Transformation
Helping you transform your business
Impact IT Solutions have the necessary skills and experience to help transform your business through automation & cloud services such as Microsoft Azure, Teams, SharePoint and even developing bespoke software applications to fill any gaps.
What is Digital Transformation?
Digital Transformation is a catch-all phrase for embracing new ways of working in the digital age and it can take various forms, but the end goal is to use technology to drive efficiency and productivity.
Depending on the size of your business, your senior leadership team may opt to have their own Digital Transformation Officers, or Chief Technology Officers to review each business process and system with a view to improving efficiency using modern technology.
If your business does not have access to this kind of resource, then we can carry out this function with you.

Microsoft Office 365 Services
Microsoft Office 365 allows you and your business to access email, files and programs, such as Outlook, Word, PowerPoint and Excel, from any location or device.
Microsoft’s cloud computing services offer scalable collaboration tools for businesses of any size and with affordable plans:
- Desktop versions of Office
- Cloud storage
- Secure e-mail
- Teams & SharePoint collaboration tools
- Mobile device management
Advanced cyber security and business continuity measures are built into Microsoft’s infrastructure and services.
We will help move your business into Microsoft Office 365 by delivering a tailored migration roadmap. This includes data migration, staff training, security and best-practice collaboration.
Microsoft Azure Services
Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform. It provides a range of cloud services, including cloud servers, storage and networking. Users can pick and choose from these services to develop and scale new applications or run existing applications and databases in the cloud.
We build, configure, test and migrate your servers into the Microsoft Azure environment.
There are a few different styles of cloud computing, infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and software as a service (SaaS).
All hardware ages and becomes obsolete or unsupported eventually and requires replacement (typically every 3 – 5 years). At this point rather than replacing physical servers, you may opt to virtualise what you have and even move this to Azure – letting Microsoft run the server for you.
Virtualisation is a tricky concept to understand if IT is not your field, but in essence imagine taking your music CD and turning it into an MP3 file. The music file can be run on any compatible player, and you are left with what you want (the music), the CD & the CD player can be disposed of. This is in essence what we do with your server.
Once we have the server virtualised, we can run multiple different servers on the same piece of physical hardware, or we can move this virtualised copy of your server into Microsoft Azure, from your user’s perspective they usually will not even notice any change.
Moving your server to Azure can offer other benefits, such as de-risking your hardware from damage, theft, costly breakdowns and offer services such as replication to other datacentres managed by Microsoft across the UK or even across continents.
Bespoke Apps & Software Development
Your business may have CRM, MRP and ERP solutions in place which may no longer be fit for purpose or for remote working. Using virtualisation technologies and Microsoft Azure, we can migrate these solutions into a virtual environment, or better still, develop new software solutions that are cloud based and aligned with your digital transformation strategy.
