Desktop Deployment Planning Services
When you want to modernize your desktop deployment, either on-premises or in the cloud – like a virtual desktop infrastructure – this service is perfect for you. With the help of our consultants we help you plan, make a migration plan, conduct a proof of concept and assist you alongside.
SQL Server Deployment Planning Services
Thinking about modernizing your data estate and wondering if an on-premises, SQL on Azure or any form of a hybrid data architecture is right for you? Than this is your way forward. Our certified and knowledgeable consults will help you find the best way forward.
How does it work?
First of all, when you consider modernization, no matter what sort, contact us first so we can align the most cost effective way forward. When Software Assurance Planning Services shows that it is, you will have to assign the planning services vouchers you have to a partner of your choice before consulting services start. For sure we hope that Quexcel is that partner for you.
After the vouchers are assigned we will, together with your, determine the scope and start the consulting. After the work is done and you are fully satisfied, we will send the proof of execution to Microsoft for payment to us. You will not receive an invoice at all (you already payed for the service through your Software Assurance).
If you find the workflow to get it organized complicated, off course we will help you with that too!
