ES3 launches new ‘MyConnect’ Cloud ecosystem to aid customers in their Cloud adoption

Organisations that have moved operations to the Cloud still aren’t achieving the desired operational agility. A renewed focus on giving companies comprehensive access and visibility into their data as well as improved functional connectivity have unlocked the Cloud’s full potential.

The advancements made in Cloud adoption has been a game changer for organisations partnered with ESyn3rgy. It has revolutionised the way these businesses approach integration and the age-old battle against data silos. Offering flexibility and scalability, the new Cloud ecosystem has opened a world of opportunity for organisations to connect various applications, systems, repositories, IT environments, services, local or Cloud-based, such as Microsoft Office 365, SharePoint, Teams, Dynamics, Azure, SQL/ERP/CRM, for the real-time exchange of data and processes in a secure and audited manner. Businesses have benefited greatly from the ability to combine all of their Cloud applications as well as on-premises systems. Once combined, the data and integrated cloud services can then be accessed by multiple devices over a network or via the internet.

MyConnect extends the Cloud boundary rapidly and securely, incorporating the organisations that you wish to collaborate with. MyConnect provides assured access to business ecosystems, supply chains and critical partner dependencies.

Case Study
Why the Cloud Ecosystem has become critical to support the pressure of technology and growth

Across industries, CIOs and CTOs have a consistent top priority—harness technology to accelerate growth, cut time to market, and drive innovation.

A leading global financial services group, is a perfect example of how ESyn3rgy adapt and evolve the services that we provide to support the evolution of a high-growth organisation – reflecting the tangible benefits of the ES3 partnership ethos which is based on continuous service improvement.

ESyn3rgy implemented MyView as a core business platform given its ability to meet all stated requirements and also providing a flexible platform that would develop in line with a growing business. MyView has been created using market leading Microsoft technologies including Azure Cloud, Microsoft 365 and market leading security applications. With these at the core, the organisation were able to provide end users with the Office suite, shared document storage and collaboration from a secure, fully managed Cloud. However, the organisation enjoyed substantial growth and increase in staff headcount and with that, fundamental changes in processes. A change in approach was therefore required.

ESyn3rgy designed, commissioned and deployed a secure ‘Cloud Ecosystem’ dedicated to the needs of their teams. Whilst this retained the key attributes of the MyView hosted desktop, it additionally provides Azure Active Directory, fully synchronised native Microsoft 365, Box (Cloud content management), and Sage. The ES3 Cloud Ecosystem MyConnect, is an invaluable tool that allows all members of their team to access critical business applications, share files and collaborate with ease from remote locations. Processes are streamlined, supporting time-critical deadlines whilst maintaining complete data security.

These priorities are not only playing out in the financial services industry, but across all industries, with huge implications for business models.

In another financial services case study, a Product Manager of a large retail bank expressed tremendous pressure to shorten product-development cycles, with already having to contend with the industry’s average product release time which has constricted from 9 to 24 months. Crucially, the core business systems needed to be fully managed and with a high availability assurance, allowing their Managers to focus on the development of the product. This could be achieved with MyConnect, to improve connectivity and visibility, and ultimately optimise business processes.

The common thread running through these case studies is the ongoing, urgent need to gain market advantage through business acceleration and adoption of new tools.
