Unleash the Power of the Cloud 

We help you make the most of your Azure cloud environments. A smoothly running IT landscape is a basic requirement for your organization; providing services to your customers is impossible without an underlying platform that serves your business. Without exception, we find that the cloud is a core ingredient in making this work. We have been moving customers to the cloud since 2014, so we know how to accelerate your journey.

 

We assess your current status, implement the necessary changes, and help establish a continuous improvement mindset to ensure you are secure and compliant by default, in a fraction of the time. Our assessments, accelerators, and training help you embrace the cloud and a DevOps way of working.

Cloud is about enablement – not about control

If you are looking to use the cloud to centralize control, you will have a hard time reaping the benefits of a cloud infrastructure. We firmly believe in focusing on your team’s productivity and establishing guardrails, rather than building a central team with limited throughput responsible for everything.

Landing Zones are a key enabler of this philosophy: walled gardens in the cloud that give your teams the freedom to excel at what they do while remaining secure and compliant with your company and industry requirements. We work to ensure that your teams are enabled and able to use the power of the cloud. We show the way, work alongside as needed, and ultimately ensure that your teams are fully enabled to maximize the potential of the Microsoft Azure cloud. By delivering expertise, training, and managed services, we ensure that your cloud journey is as smooth as possible.

In addition to the struggle to remain on top of ongoing innovations and improvements in the cloud, key challenges for you include uncontrolled cloud spending, an increasing awareness of carbon footprint, and the ongoing need for a secure cloud infrastructure.

Everything You Need To Be Successful In The Microsoft Cloud

Cloud Domains

We have built our services and expertise across many areas to ensure we are equipped to handle any cloud transformation.

Cloud Strategy 

There is a lot of truth to the statement “vision without action is a daydream; action without vision is a nightmare. We strongly believe that every organization should spend just enough time on formulating a strategy for the cloud – and not much more.

Make sure that ambitions are in sync with reality and create a plan that takes everything into account. Our cloud readiness scans and cloud assessments can help build your cloud roadmap quickly and efficiently. 

Cloud Engineering & Migration 

Building or migrating to new cloud environments is where the rubber hits the road. This is where our experts shine, in execution as well as in knowledge transfer.

We take your teams along for the ride, to build state-of-the-art cloud infrastructures that will empower your business. 

Cost and Carbon Footprint 

It is very easy to turn things on in the cloud, but every service has a financial and an environmental impact. The FinOps and GreenOps disciplines encapsulate the associated responsibilities in frameworks and tools, but how do you make effective use of this? How do you ensure that the measures you take have the effect you are aiming for? Our assessments and improvement blueprints have proven to be extremely effective in managing cost and aligning with ESG ratings and regulations. 

Cloud Managed Services 

Getting to the cloud is a great achievement, but continuously monitoring, updating and expanding your cloud infrastructure is just as important. Our Managed Services team can help you maintain and grow your Landing Zones, and further accelerate your cloud journey using

Solutions

Comprehensive cloud solutions feature platform modernization, advanced Landing Zones, self-service portals, and certified Azure training to optimize infrastructure and empower teams.

Cloud Platform Modernization 

As part of our end-to-end modernization approach, we specifically look at cloud and on-premise infrastructures. It does not matter what your current situation is – existing data centers, some deployment of resources in the cloud, full-fledged but hard-to-manage landing zones, or some combination of these three – we help modernize your environment. The goal: empowered product teams, optimal cloud resource usage, minimized spending and carbon footprint, and a quicker time to market. In many cases, the Xebia Azure Landing Zone is the ideal environment to achieve these goals. 

Cloud Landing Zone 

Although many companies offer some form of the Microsoft-guided Landing Zone design according to CAF (Cloud Adoption Framework), we take Landing Zones to a whole new level. For us, a Landing Zone entails Subscription democratization, policy-driven governance, a single control & management plane, an application-centric service model as well as alignment with Azure-native design and roadmaps, and we have found that most well-meaning Landing Zones come nowhere near this level of ambition. 

We can implement our Landing Zone and instruct your teams as needed, or we can provide full end-to-end Managed Services and take away all your challenges in having to stay up to date on all the latest technology changes. 

Cloud Command – Self-Service Portal 

For organizations that have been onboarded on the Xebia Azure Landing Zone, we can optionally implement a self-service portal that allows product teams to fully take matters into their own hands: instead of the traditional ticket dance between stakeholders and a centralized, overworked team of cloud experts, we provide a single pane of glass where environments can be provisioned and key cloud metrics can be reviewed and analyzed by the required stakeholders. 

1the Xebia Self-service Portal is built on top of https://backstage.io/, a cloud native computing foundation incubation project 

Training 

We offer a comprehensive training approach. We assess current skills, align them with future goals, and fill any gaps, ensuring lasting transformation over temporary solutions. Our aim is to empower individuals and organizations to thrive independently in the evolving tech landscape.  

We provide a variety of certified Azure training courses, like the Admin, Developer and Architect training.

AI900 – Azure AI Fundamentals
AZ104 – Azure Administrator
AZ204 – Azure Developer
AZ305 – Azure Architect
