Velocity IT Supports Microsoft Networks For Organizations Throughout Dallas & Fort Worth
If you have a computer, odds are it's running a Microsoft operating system. If it's connected to the cloud, it may be using Microsoft's cloud services. As of June 2021, Microsoft's Windows operating system ran on 73% of all desktops worldwide, and 22% of companies used its cloud services which grew 50% in the second quarter of 2021. With that many devices using Microsoft products and services, it only makes sense to have access to IT support that specializes in Microsoft solutions.
Whether it's preparing presentations or writing reports, Microsoft 365 has the tools to improve productivity. Add Teams to the mix, and your business has a collaborative environment that makes a distributed workforce operate efficiently and effectively. However, many organizations never take advantage of many features because they are unaware of their potential.
For example, Teams allows private channels to be created under the same umbrella, ensuring that all information remains in one location. Combining Teams with Microsoft 365 enables employees to collaborate using familiar Office applications. Working with Velocity IT's certified professionals means having access to the resources needed to realize the capabilities of Microsoft's productivity tools. With Microsoft's productivity tools, organizations can:
- Support a distributed workforce
- Maintain reliable security
- Leverage Microsoft product integration
Whether companies continue to use on-premise solutions or move to the cloud, Velocity IT has the resources to deliver Microsoft support for productivity tools.
Microsoft Support for Cloud Services
Part of Microsoft's growth in cloud services comes from its Azure platform. Organizations can ensure successful cloud migrations and Azure deployments by using a managed IT provider with Azure expertise. Experienced providers understand what is required and can help plan, manage, deploy, and onboard to an Azure platform.
Velocity IT partners with clients throughout an Azure lifecycle. They start with an assessment to determine needs and evaluate existing infrastructures and processes to determine migration readiness. They assist in implementing best practices to ensure a reliable and secure cloud-based infrastructure.
Managed IT's proactive management and monitoring minimizes the day-to-day operational demands of a cloud-based implementation. With the help of Velocity IT's trained staff, companies can optimize their investment in Azure and enjoy an environment that:

As more companies look to Azure, they should look to trained professionals for assistance and ongoing Microsoft support.
On-Premise Microsoft Support Services
Windows Server is part of the infrastructure for organizations using Microsoft products on-premise, but managing it requires an expertise that not every company has. Whether dealing with password complexities or ensuring updates are deployed, administering Microsoft server products demands practical experience. Only through designing and implementing server solutions can individuals gain the knowledge of how to maximize their potential.
If your Dallas-based business uses the following Microsoft products, Velocity IT has certified engineers to help configure and maintain an on-premise environment:
- Microsoft Windows Server
- Microsoft Exchange Server
- Microsoft Windows Small Business Server
- Microsoft SQL Server
Deploying multiple servers only adds to the complexities, which increases the opportunities for vulnerabilities to go unchecked. Working with Velocity IT ensures the delivery of comprehensive Microsoft support.
Microsoft Support for Cybersecurity
Microsoft offers an advanced threat protection solution using Windows and its cloud services. The protection platform includes:
- Behavioral sensors that collect and process signals from Windows 10
- Security analytics that leverages Microsoft optics to deliver insights and recommend responses
- Threat intelligence based on information from Microsoft's network of cybersecurity specialists
These features can identify attackers and generate alerts based on collected sensor data. When properly configured, Microsoft's end-to-end cybersecurity solutions can:
