Mitchell Shire Council Case Study - Summary
"Azure MasterPlan has helped us understand how the cloud can free up time for IT operations and support to work on innovating business processes, instead of worrying about day-to-day operational problems” - Kamran Changezi, Project Manager
Mitchell Shire Council (MSC) is modernising its on-premises infrastructure environment by migrating its disaster recovery (DR) services from local data centre providers to Microsoft Cloud, as part of an ongoing digital transformation initiative to alleviate existing capital expenditure and operational pains by leveraging Azure.
Mitchell Shire Council determined moving to Azure could provide compliant, secure and scalable disaster recovery and a future-proofed platform to explore moving their backup, SQL Server and site recovery to the cloud. The council directly engaged Microsoft to find a partner experienced with cloud infrastructure migration and optimisation.
Meeting the council’s requirements, Xello joined the team and worked closely with Project Manager Kamran Changezi to map out the council’s strategic long-term cloud journey in the form of the Azure MasterPlan solution.
Mitchell Shire Council Case Study - Outcomes
With a customised cloud roadmap solution built from the ground up with the council's business needs in mind, Mitchell Shire Council now has a better understanding of Azure and how its capabilities can support their many operational objectives and take them towards a cloud-first future. Our Azure MasterPlan has also provided:
- A detailed cost optimisation plan that fully leverages Azure
- A cloud-first strategy that clearly defines Azure benefits and maps it to MSC's unique transformation journey
- Business continuity that supports the council's overall goals for better disaster recovery (DR) capabilities
While the council is still in the early stages of its overall cloud journey, the Azure MasterPlan provides them a clearer picture of how Microsoft Azure’s services align with and benefit their long-term digital transformation objectives.
