Accelerate your cloud transformation journey with our best practices-driven approach

Every organisation—regardless of size, industry, or geography—faces seismic changes in markets, competitive landscape, strategies, and business requirements.

Sometimes these changes are expected, sometimes not. Regardless, you need to pivot, which is made more difficult (or impossible) by legacy technology that can’t keep up. Plus if you’re a large, global enterprise, the challenge is even more daunting.


We are experiencing a generational transition in the way organisations use, buy, and operate software.

Take a look at HSO’s presentation delivered at South Coast Summit 2021, and learn more about how organisations are moving from app to ecosystem.

The past era focused on implementing point solutions to solve specific business needs… using an app to fill a gap.

Today’s forward-looking organisations are taking a platform-first approach, investing in their infrastructure to build, manage and govern their entire technology stack.

Microsoft’s answer to the platform-first movement: The revolutionary Cloud Application Platform

Forward-looking enterprises are leveraging Microsoft’s cloud application platform.

The Microsoft Cloud Application platform provides layers of governance and security, so you can connect multiple systems in a safe way. The recommended tools for this include…
