The Challenge

Having the vision to do things differently requires infrastructure that utilises the latest emerging technology, Machine Learning and analytics, but equally important is support by a managed service provider who can think outside the box and challenge the norm. Azzurro had already taken the initial steps with Azure and Office365, but was looking for a partner who could architect a solution that not only fits the day-to-day requirements, but has the capability to evolve to satisfy the planned aspirations

If nothing changes, nothing changes. Plenty of companies could have taken the tried-and-tested route with our infrastructure; We’re challenging ourselves to be exceptional and we expect our partners to do the same, Yobah have done just that

How we helped

Following initial discussions around their vision, Yobah undertook a comprehensive audit of their current infrastructure, and a review of existing and emerging solutions within the Azure technology stack.

This enabled Azzurro and Yobah to create a roadmap of development, migration, expansion and progression that delivered on the agreed goals, without introducing any bottlenecks that would impede growth further down the line. Everything was considered; development and operational databases, DataLake and storage, analytics, MI and reporting, secure communications and data transfer, device management, audit and business continuity.

Data Security and Regulation is a key consideration throughout every area; everything was designed with GDPR in mind, meeting ISO27001 as standard, with a clear focus on their various regulatory requirements . The current solution meets all core requirements, provides a solid foundation for growth and delivers an ‘innovation platform’ for Azzurro

We took a risk with partnering with Yobah, as they were new to the market in the managed service space. I do not regret taking that risk. We have received a service far greater than what we have previously seen in the market, and Yobah have gone beyond the traditional offering to provide us with a bespoke infrastructure that is allowing us to excel
