Waltham, MA, United States, 2014/11/05 - Metalogix is bringing industry experts, tools and training together to help clients accelerate adoption and ROI with Cloud-based collaboration platforms including Office 365, Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services.
Today, Metalogix announced the launch of the Cloud Acceleration Suite and Partner Program to help clients successfully deploy collaboration capabilities in the cloud platform of their choice, including Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and hybrid and private cloud. The program brings together Metalogix’ trusted migration and management tools for mission-critical collaboration platforms and Microsoft qualified cloud deployment partners to offer organizations a start-to-finish solution for rapid migration of email, files and SharePoint content to the cloud.
Despite a strong industry push in recent years to move content collaboration to the cloud, a significant number of companies are far from achieving cloud adoption due to a lack of professional experience in migrating content and training end-users on how to maximize their cloud productivity. As reported in The Wall Street Journal’s CIO Journal in May, Gartner Research Inc. vice president Tom Austin stated that only eight percent of enterprise employees moved to cloud-based office systems in 2013.
To enable enterprises to meet their cloud onboarding goals, the Metalogix Cloud Acceleration Suite contains the industry’s most trusted tools for deployment, adoption and ongoing management of cloud-based collaboration platforms. These expert tools provide IT professionals a single, unified solution for the migration of email, files and SharePoint content into OneDrive for Business, Office 365 and other cloud-based collaboration platforms. Employees are also provided simple and secure tools to move business content from their personal cloud storage into their corporate cloud storage accounts. Once migrated to the cloud, the suite provides tools for the on-going management of sites, security, users, content and metadata.
“Successful cloud deployments combine the right set of tools and the right expertise to accelerate migration to and adoption of cloud-based collaboration platforms,” said Steve Murphy, CEO, Metalogix. “So today, we are launching the Cloud Acceleration Suite and Partner Program to provide clients the tools, training and expertise they need to overcome the unique deployment and user adoption challenges of rolling out a cloud-based collaboration platform.”
The Metalogix Cloud Acceleration Partner Program brings together the most experienced and knowledgeable experts in deploying cloud-based collaboration platforms. Cloud Acceleration Partners are qualified and trained to use the Metalogix Cloud Acceleration Suite to achieve each client’s unique business goals on their chosen cloud platform. These partners can help clients at each step of their cloud journey including developing a migration roadmap, establishing governance and management processes and securing sensitive content.
To help companies provision, configure and fund their Cloud migration, Microsoft‘s Office 365 Adoption Offer FastTrack program makes funds available to Microsoft clients who enlist the help of a Microsoft qualified partner to conduct adoption activities through March 2015. All six Metalogix Cloud Acceleration Suite Inaugural Partners are Microsoft qualified FastTrack partners.
The following are the inaugural partners in the Metalogix Cloud Acceleration Partner Program:
• Cardinal Solutions
• En Pointe
• Slalom Consulting
