Azzurro Associates

Azzurro Associates is a specialist purchaser of commercial and niche consumer debt portfolios; FinTech, Innovator, Disruptor, with a Data-driven approach at their core, they formed to make a real difference to the way the credit industry operate.

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
