Cloudwise becomes Microsoft Cloud Champion
Cloudwise, the Wise Group’s IT consultancy, has become a Microsoft Cloud Champion. That makes Cloudwise only the second Cloud Champion in Scotland. Fourteen third sector organisations involving more than 500 people have migrated to the cloud through Cloudwise.
Josh Waldo, senior director in the Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft, says “We are excited about Wise Group joining the Microsoft Cloud Accelerate program. The partners in this program are doing amazing things and are looking to differentiate their business and better serve customers with Microsoft cloud solutions.”
Cloudwise has also achieved one Silver competency in the Microsoft Partner Network. This places the Wise Group within the top 10% of Microsoft partners in the world.
Cloudwise is an IT consultancy for public and third sector companies - supporting them to move onto Microsoft Cloud Computing.
Cloudwise can provide your business with subscription based, Microsoft hosted, online communication, collaboration and productivity applications. The service, delivered in partnership with Microsoft Online Services, makes the transition to the cloud pain free.
Benefits of using Cloudwise:
- seamless transition to Microsoft cloud computing
- cost-effective, you only pay for what you use and there is no need for any hardware procurement
- easy licence management
- your employees are kept up-to-date when new versions of software are released
- built to cope with increases/decreases in workload

- all data is stored securely on central servers which are backed up daily.
How we can help you make the move
The Wise Group will provide you with a free 'health-check' on your current IT systems and will enrol your organisation on a no-obligation 30 day free-trial. After your trial, if you would like to move your IT infrastructure to the cloud, we will ensure the transition is fully managed and we can provide your organisation with on-going support and training. As a Third Sector enterprise we will also ensure you are receiving the substantial discount offered to organisations in our sector.
