21 Training provides support to school leavers, job seekers, employees and employers to develop their skills with nationally recognised qualifications and employability supports. Serving communities across Northern Ireland they aim to help people of all backgrounds aspire, evolve and achieve.

The challenge

Following a merger, 21 Training needed to reduce their administrative workload and move their on-premises infrastructure to Azure. They were also hoping to boost collaboration between the merged organisations by embracing cloud technologies.

21 Training were encouraged by Microsoft to give us a call, and chose us as a trusted partner thanks to our experts’ technical expertise, our close relationship with Microsoft and our CSP support offering. We were confident we had the right solution to meet their goals and support their work in expanding career opportunities for those who need it – a cause close to our hearts and the mission behind the Transparity Academy.

The solution

We suggested a full Azure migration with Endpoint Manager to provide additional security for their users and devices.

By migrating to Azure, 21 Training gained a platform that would scale and grow with them – connecting their offices across Northern Ireland to enable better collaborative working. Plus, Azure’s pay-as-you-go model offered them better control over their spend without the headache of maintaining on-premises infrastructure. As a result, their team can focus on supporting their communities and forget about expensive hardware updates and time-consuming software updates.

We implemented Endpoint Manager to support the security of their devices across all their offices. This means users can securely access the data and files they need from anywhere on any device. The team at 21 Training can also secure and deploy new devices quickly, allowing them to onboard new team members more easily.

The outcome

As a result of this project, 21 Training have a reliable, flexible and scalable cloud environment to support them across branches as they grow. Built with security in mind they can be confident their Azure infrastructure will support their future development, with Endpoint Manager to deliver a further layer of security.

21 Training have removed the cost and maintenance demands of their on-premise estate and opted for a fully cloud-based infrastructure. Their IT team now spend less time on maintenance and managing requests from users, and more time on innovating and improving systems to support the organisation’s growth and development.

“The team at Transparity have been outstanding to work with from the get-go.  From planning the project to implementation, their wealth of knowledge and advice on Microsoft Cloud solutions has enabled us to streamline our IT infrastructure.  Transparity have supported us every step of the way and they’ve made migrating to Azure and improving our security a seamless process while giving us confidence that our systems are robust and secure.  I strongly recommend Transparity as a trusted partner for Microsoft Cloud”
