What We Did

Solution

After conducting an assessment, MRE created a proposal to leverage Azure public cloud to achieve the flexibility and predictive costs the organization was seeking.

MRE inventoried critical assets and architected a staged migration to move the organization’s infrastructure to Azure. ​

The team also designed a three-year strategic IT roadmap to further increase the client’s security posture and leverage technologies to positively impact business operations. The roadmap would mitigate risk, prioritize initiatives, and increase IT efficiency and spending throughout the organization. ​

“They have found ways for us to save on initial and operating costs, including winning us donations and credits from vendors including Microsoft, and continue to bring us recommendations for things that add value and save cost for us. Due to their partnership, we were able to continue our work from offsite throughout Hurricane Harvey until it was safe to return to our buildings, and to pivot on a dime for Covid with almost no disruption to our teams and services”
