Your New Flexible, Sustainable Business Model
Cloud services are transformative. When you leave behind physical servers, you break out of rigid systems and gain a flexible, sustainable business environment. With the help of a trusted Microsoft Azure partner, you can easily manage the shift to Azure, increase agility, and create new opportunities for your business to rapidly scale.

An Azure Partner That Simplifies Your Business
The digital transformation is creating a business divide. Companies that take advantage of Microsoft Azure services enjoy flexible OpEx cloud subscription models for all their technology. Other organizations struggle to make technology secure, flexible and scalable to meet their dynamic needs. Instead of strategic planning, they continue to update applications and hardware in a never-ending CapEx cycle.
We believe it’s time for a change.

It Only Takes 3 Steps to Work with a Microsoft Azure Partner
Not every cloud service provider is a trusted Microsoft partner. At Nortec, our team continually demonstrate their skills and obtain certifications. They’ve completed over 100 migrations, using a proven framework to accelerate and optimize cloud adoption within organizations. When you work with us, you’re guaranteed your Azure migration plan and support will be administered by experts. Here’s how we do it for you:
1. Define and plan your migration
You explain your business needs and goals and we roadmap solutions. Before migrating your organization, we create a robust plan from start to finish and test the plan without disrupting your working environment to ensure everything is properly connected and working.
2. Migrate you to the cloud
We prepare the cloud environment and migrate you to the cloud after business hours or over a weekend to minimize disruptions and operational downtime. We check the systems and turn on advanced security tools, like Advanced Threat Protection, so your business is protected from day one.
3. Support with Azure services and staff training
After the migration, we manage and govern your resources, users, security and process to continually optimize the cloud through our Azure services. Our aim is to ensure that the Azure cloud continually supports your business needs without you overspending in the cloud. We’ll also train your team on new applications and systems and identify your next steps in the cloud.
