CASE STUDY: LAW FIRM, CLOUD SERVICES
Migrating a law firm’s critical application to the cloud
Seyfarth Shaw needed their application moved to the cloud quickly and securely.
Seyfarth Shaw needed a solution to get a mission-critical app to the cloud while they moved to a SaaS model. Our solution was efficient and budget-friendly.
Seyfarth Shaw needed a solution to host this application on an interim basis immediately while they worked towards a fully SaaS model. They also knew that rapid migration could pose unnecessary and avoidable risk. The approaching deadline to complete the migration meant they needed outside help to expedite the process.
When Seyfarth Shaw leadership first went to their existing technology partner for help they were presented with a much bigger managed services solution than they needed, an estimate for the migration far more than they expected, and a timeframe that just didn’t work. The firm knew they needed an expert technology partner with a deep understanding of complex migrations, and Azure and Microsoft platforms and products.
What We Did
They turned to Netrix, who listened carefully, asked the right questions and came back with an immediately actionable solution to meet their unique requirements, their budget and their timeframe. Netrix recommended Microsoft Azure so Seyfarth Shaw could move the application quickly to avoid any service interruptions and ensure necessary security and compliance requirements were in place, including needed firewalls, while using their existing infrastructure.
In addition, Netrix understood that once this migration was completed, Seyfarth wanted to manage the day-to-day monitoring and management of this interim solution. Netrix then provided a complete knowledge transfer once the migration was done, to allow the Seyfarth team to fully manage the system themselves without a large learning curve.
A Successful Outcome
Netrix’s approach gave Seyfarth Shaw the flexibility and agility they required, without locking them into a long-term contract, and set them up for future success.
Another Successful Project
Seyfarth Shaw had to migrate this mission-critical application quickly but couldn’t risk disruption or delay.
Netrix recommended a one-time project budget, rather than an expensive and ongoing managed services contract.
Netrix’s interim Azure migration solution allowed Seyfarth to later transition their enterprise IT on their own timeline.
