Evergreen IT

Say goodbye to application compatibility issues for continuously updated OS’s with evergreen IT.

The problem

With the introduction of Windows 10 and Microsoft’s strategic move to Windows-as-a-Service, we’ve been told to expect to see the end of major OS migration projects.  Microsoft plans to deliver two OS updates a year, but are you and your applications ready for that? Most IT departments aren’t.

Evergreen IT Services

Stay two steps ahead

With our evergreen IT approach, we look ahead at the next two scheduled updates and make sure your applications will work with the latest releases.  From our experience, around 20% of an organisation’s applications need to be updated each year.

Our service extends from adhoc packaging when you need it, all the way to an end-to-end lifecycle management service for applications, over either a 3- or 5-year period.  We’ll ensure that in-scope applications are monitored, maintained and deployed, leaving you free to focus on other business priorities.

Our Evergreen IT Approach

Evergreen IT services

Helping you cut the cost and time of deploying Feature Updates by regularly pre-testing your business critical applications. 

01

Pre-testing

Technical testing of each in-scope application against each new iteration or update of the Windows 10 target environment.  Applications are loaded, installed and de-install to assess their compatibility.

02

Reporting

We’ll tell you which of your in-scope applications will run on your current target environment within your chosen Windows cadence period (e.g. current/next/next+1 etc.)

03

Packaging

Applications that can’t be deployed on your chosen iteration of the OS will be re-packaged.  We will also package replacements of any retired in-scope applications and any new in-scope applications.

04

Retesting

Technical testing of the new and re-packaged application(s) against the customer’s target environment (load / install / de-install)

Per user per month pricing

Our Evergreen IT pricing makes it really easy for you to stay in control of rollouts and budgets.  With per user per month pricing you can choose to control your deployments by priority business functions or application users.  

You're always in control

Regardless of whether you’re a service provider or the in-house IT manager, we’re here to lighten the load depending on how hands-on you want to be.  If you want to manage the deployment tools and environment such as SCCM, fantastic!  We’ll focus on getting your applications ready for when you need them.  However, if you want us to manage both, we’re ready when you are.

We’ll do as much or as little as you need us to.
