With redefining the modern workplace a priority for business leaders right now, Microsoft 365 remains a leader in cloud based productivity, with its platform designed to help leaders empower everyone at their companies to unleash creativity and collaboration.
Implementing a Microsoft 365 Enterprise allowed organisations to deploy collaboration technology, like Microsoft Teams and Exchange Online, and to share sensitive data online across secure SharePoint intranet sites.
At the same time, intelligent security features and product integration helps streamline management needs and minimise the total cost of ownership across the IT lifecycle.
Dynamics 365 is a big player in the Microsoft family of business applications.
It promises to turn business process into business advantage for organisations everywhere.
Dynamics 365 includes a range of apps and add-ons which address organisational needs for ERP and CRM, Human Resources, Commerce, Mixed Reality, and AI. All designed to provide you with maximum flexibility and extensibility.
Because of this flexibility and rapid innovation, Dynamics 365 can adapt to fit almost any organisation, whether you are a government agency, enterprise, or university.
How ASG supports the Microsoft Power Platform
Because Microsoft’s applications are continually evolving, and because they connect to your whole business, it is recommended to seek expert guidance to determine exactly which apps fit your business needs and strategy. As well as advice or support around implementation, business processes and change.
Microsoft Azure is Microsoft’s public cloud computing platform that aims to help businesses manage challenges and meet their organisational goals.
As one of the top hyperscale cloud providers for pricing and capabilities, Azure is a fast, flexible, and affordable platform that provides a range of cloud services, including compute, analytics, storage and networking.
Organisations can pick and choose from these services to develop and scale new applications or run existing applications in the public cloud. It offers tools that support all industries and is compatible with open source technologies. This provides users with the flexibility to use their preferred tools and technologies.
HOW ASG CAN SUPPORT YOUR CLOUD JOURNEY INTO AZURE
When you’re choosing an Azure partner for hosting your business-critical applications, it’s essential that you find one with the expertise needed to give you the level of support you need both now, and into the future.
ASG can offer both local and federal Governments the ability to host Government sensitive applications in Microsoft’s “Protected” CDC.
Microsoft CDC datacentre is one of the only global cloud facilities, with the first in Canberra and has been specifically designed and secured to meet the strict security compliance requirements of Australian government and national critical infrastructure.
MICROSOFT GOLD PARTNER
As a Microsoft Gold Partner, as well as an experienced digital transformation and managed service partner, ASG has many case studies of delivering major cloud transformations using hyperscale providers like Microsoft Azure.
Our services focus on cost savings, increased capacity and capability, insights, and continuous innovation.
In this digital age, we are extremely reliant on data – and the amount of data companies are creating is continually increasing. While data is important, it is useless (and costly) unless we are able to gain insights and meaning from it.
Traditionally, creating value from data would require data analysis, app creation or automation, and would require teams to outline their requirements and aims, submit these requests to their IT department (or even an external partner) and then wait for it to be built.
Microsoft’s Power Platform helps remove bottlenecks in IT departments through data democratisation – the ability for digital information to be accessible to the typical (non-technical) end user. It provides three technologies – PowerApps, Power Automate and Power BI – that allow staff to do more with their data themselves without coding knowledge. While it doesn’t allow the intricacies and flexibility of custom coding, it does provide a simple method for most users to be able to create, automate or analyse their data in ways which have never been possible for the average worker.
How ASG supports the Microsoft Power Platform
The Power Platform has many exciting possibilities and considerations to ensure you get the most from your investment, but it can be difficult to know where to start, or what it could do for your organisation.
ASG can help you discover the true value of the Power Platform and ways it can be manipulated to give you a competitive edge. We can provide consultancy, workshops or even build a Proof of Concept (POC) so that you can test these technologies in your workplace with minimal investment.
To achieve success in an ever changing climate particularly following Covid-19, today’s CIOs and IT leaders have to contend with many challenges, such as continuous innovation, time to market, and process inefficiencies.
Overcoming these challenges involves grappling with what practices, technologies, and skills are required to deliver – which inevitably becomes its own issue due to resource and cost restraints.
Some IT leaders are approaching the problem through Low-Code Application Platforms (LCAP’s) which oﬀer the technical agility that companies need to innovate new applications and mission critical systems (or adapt legacy technology) faster and more securely, using existing talent and resources.

SharePoint is an intranet and content management system that enables greater sharing, collaboration, and accessibility of documents and tools.
In current times, SharePoint has demonstrated its critical status in modern organisations, where remote working has become the new ‘business as usual’.
Microsoft SharePoint is comprised of a multipurpose set of technologies that has tight integration with Office 365 as well as handy document management capabilities.
How ASG supports Microsoft SharePoint
Implementing the SharePoint software is the easiest step. It’s the work that you do before the implementation that determines whether it’s successful. Assessing your requirements and determining what you need SharePoint to do for your company is what will make or break your implementation.
As a Microsoft Gold Partner, ASG are experienced in SharePoint, as well as enterprise IT and user environments. Using our trusted processes, we can help you; eliminate what you don’t need; add in what you do; choose the right service model for your current and future needs; and then finally, train your staff to ensure full adoption.
In recent times, Microsoft Teams has been a bit of a hero.
As the leading business communication platform, Microsoft Teams brings together the best capabilities Office 365 has to offer including chat-based communication and collaboration.
With its seamless integration of applications that business users rely on every day, Teams is a user friendly, enterprise solution for instant messaging,voice and video calls, interactive meetings, file sharing, collaborative editing and team-based planning.
Benefits to your organisation include:
- Seamless integration with Office 365
- A single platform for collaboration and teamwork
- Customisable to your business needs
- Built-in security, compliance and management tools including advanced data protection.
SKIP THE TEETHING PROBLEMS AND GET STRAIGHT TO BUSINESS WITH MICROSOFT TEAMS
Despite Microsoft Teams powerful capability to enable a remote and modern workforce, it does have its horror stories. Through poor implementation, Microsoft Teams can quickly become an uncontrolled cobweb of content that makes it difficult to use effectively.
To avoid this, recommended practices include considerations for effective deployment, configuration, governance, user education and change management, that are rolled out following extensive planning, advice, control measures, and investment in the right areas to suit your needs.
Need an experienced partner to work with? ASG have carried out many Microsoft Teams rollouts for large organisations.
