Grow your ISV with Microsoft Azure

Reach more customers, enter new markets and introduce recurring revenues by harnessing the power of the public cloud.

We help transform your business to a Software as a Service (SaaS) model with the technical and commercial expertise in application modernisation and Azure. The pace at which you migrate to Azure is up to you. We can host the application on behalf of your customers or we can migrate your application to Azure so you have a SaaS model. We can then work with your own developers or ours to modernise the application to be cloud native.

A fully supported SaaS journey for your ISV

We work with teams across your business to provide our complete Software as a Service (SaaS) solution which follows Microsoft’s best practice Cloud Adoption Framework. We also leverage Azure Dev-Ops to speed up development cycles, allowing you to keep pace with customer demands.

Our dedicated ISV team have moved many ISVs to the cloud with our three-stage ISV modernisation programme. Whether you’re new to Azure or looking to optimise an existing environment, Cloud Direct is the growth partner to take your offering to the next level.

"Cloud Direct has been great. They sat down with us, asked what we were trying to achieve, then worked with us from planning through to implementation. I really value the personal level of service. Being able to pick up the phone and to speak to someone who knows what we’re trying to do from a business perspective makes a big difference."
