Our laudable cloud experts create a cloud strategy that will lead to cost-effectiveness in your business. We conduct a workshop and training to explain the cloud solution that will be profitable for you. We also help you assess the cloud environment and plan migration accordingly. We provide different offers and services such as Proof of Concept, Workshop, HBC (Holistic Business Case), Migration Assessment, etc.

Proof of Concept (PoC):

As a top-notch Microsoft Azure Expert MSP, we provide the Proof of Concept (PoC) offer that enables the clients to get exemplary solution architecture and business results that eventually help the customers in making the best cloud strategies. We take the role of a cloud enabler for your business. Once you select the cloud solution like migration, automation, etc., we further help you plan and do a solid project to get the advantages of the answer eventually.

To start the transformation
The key advantages of
creating working layouts
  • Testing the new ideas:
    Cloud enables you to meticulously test all the ideas before considering the concepts for production. Our PoC offer effectively helps in executing the vision and checking the results.
  • Check new possibilities:
    Our PoC offer gives you the pertinent details of various technical probabilities regarding the request. This, in turn, helps you transform ideas into facts.
  • Opt for the rollback:
    If in case you do not like the offered solution, you can roll back anytime and select a new method for your innovative solution.
Functioning of Proof of Concept (PoC):
Organizing workshops

Once our team listens to your idea, we will create an architecture diagram of cloud computing. We also educate you about the application that needs to be migrated, even from a different public cloud.

Connect with the team of cloud architects and engineers

We have skilled architects and engineers to guide you at each step, right from the initial meeting to the post-implementation guidance regarding your solution.

Factors to consider
Creating a cloud-native product from the initial stage 01

While creating an application on the cloud, planning the entire architecture is vital. Our team of laudable cloud architects will guide you in favour of a suitable layout for different system elements. To vindicate the concept, our cloud specialist will also make the Proof of Concept (PoC) for the entire infrastructure of the innovative product to check if the solution will function smoothly and be the cost-optimized solution to enhance the scalability of your business.

Migration from the legacy infrastructure to cloud 02

Creating a PoC in this scenario will depend on the possibility of performing the migration process per the guidelines, to what extent refactoring must be done, and if the system’s movement to the cloud will be a cost-effective solution. There are some changes needed while migrating from one cloud to the other. It is sometimes essential to refactor the application architecture according to the cloud services.

Cloud adoption method 03

Suppose an engineer desires optimum use of cloud computing possibilities, like moving system elements to managed services. In that case, it is essential to make some alterations to the application’s architecture and the source code. Eventually, Proof of Concept is to be made, keeping in mind that the chosen services and sample codes must run into the test environment.


The Noventiq team has a workshop offering wherein our cloud engineers provide the workshops during different meetings with your stakeholders and management team. Here, we give seminars of around one week or even lesser days. We even ask you to take some initial steps to prepare for the meeting, for instance, guiding you regarding the required information.
Our workshop helps in understanding the best practices and different cloud migration challenges. We help you understand the concept through the use cases and other tools. It will eventually help you to understand different ways to get the best value and advantages from the technologies and cloud solutions.

(Holistic Business Case)

We have a team of laudable cloud engineers and architects to provide a holistic business case approach per your needs. Here, you can get an overview of your environment's financial and technical timeline. Certain factors must be considered whenever there is a migration process from one platform to another. For instance, for migrating from on-prem to the cloud, you need to know if you wish to do lift & shift, implement from zero, etc., per your organization’s requirement.

Different factors of a business case
  • Financial data:

    There are certain things to remember about the financial data: costing required to run the environment, current spending on servers on average yearly, current expenditures in the Data Centre operations categories, next hardware refresh, etc.

  • Environment scope:

    While creating the on-premises view of the environment, it is essential to remember that financial data and the technical environment must be matched.

  • On-prem cost:

    It would help foresee your overall on-prem cost before migrating to the cloud platform.

  • Azure scenario for on-premises costing:

    Foreseeing the cost of migrating to the cloud in Azure is vital. Time and resources are required to ease shifting the entire environment on the cloud platform. So, this factor must be considered in the business case. All the advantages of the cloud are included here.

  • Timeline of migration:

    You need to foresee the migration timeline and cost for the environment. Accordingly, you can opt for the optimized solution and get the benefits of Azure. Different options exist, like using reserved instances, the Azure hybrid model, etc.

Different ways to reduce cloud costs
  • Azure hybrid:

    You can decrease the costs of operating the workloads in the cloud with the help of licensing advantage. The Azure platform can use on-prem Software Assurance-enabled Windows server and SQL server licenses.

  • Spot virtual machines:

    Another best advantage is using the spot virtual machines for workloads as it gives discounts, and the best part is there is no time frame to complete this. For instance, batch processing job and dev/test environment that includes the integration and delivery workloads.

  • Reservations:

    Here, we get a discount on different workloads as you reserve resources in advance using reservation techniques.

  • Azure saving plan for computing:

    It is one of the most flexible saving plans available for the organization that eventually gives savings on pay-as-you-go prices. Different computing services eligible are container instances, virtual machines, dedicated hosts, Azure app services, etc. Savings apply to all computing services irrespective of the regions, operating systems, or instance sizes.

  • Azure dev/test pricing:

    You can also make optimum use of discounts on the rates of development and testing. Here, there are Microsoft software charges on Azure Virtual machine and special dev/test prices on different types of services.

Migration Assessment:

Noventiq has a team of cloud professionals who are well-versed in providing migration assessments per customers’ needs. Our assessment tool (Azure Migrate) lets you sync the company's people and different processes to a single solution. It eventually helps to share insights with concerned people in a jiff. Moreover, using the recent data, you can make the correct decisions for your business. Various functions are incorporated into the tool, allowing the team to add current data and complete customer requests sooner. After a thorough assessment, a report is generated.
