New Signature’s Cloud Management Portal provides a simple way to view and track Azure subscriptions, consumption and spend in one place.
Washington, D.C (PRWEB) November 19, 2015
New Signature, the 2015 Microsoft US Partner of the Year, announced that its Cloud Management Portal is now available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. Organizations with an Azure Enterprise Agreement can use the portal to manage the health, usage and cost of their cloud environment. Available through the web (http://bit.ly/NSportal) and the Azure Marketplace (http://bit.ly/NewSignaturePortal), New Signature’s Cloud Management Portal provides a simple way to view and track Azure subscriptions, consumption and spend in one place.
“New Signature's Cloud Management Portal is very helpful because it shows us the specifics of Microsoft Azure billing and usage by department, and also allows us to make better planning decisions," Robert Welsford, Manager of IT and Network Operations at engineering firm Morrison Hershfield. "For example, I am now able to easily show to management why moving test/dev to Microsoft Azure is very cost-effective.”
"To drive real business transformation, customers need the right strategies, services, and solutions that take advantage of what the cloud offers," said Nicole Herskowitz, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Microsoft Azure. "The addition of New Signature's Cloud Management Portal to the Azure Marketplace will help accelerate cloud adoption by providing the tools and insights to help enable better business agility and cost savings."
In June 2015, New Signature acquired Canadian cloud platform leaders Infrastructure Guardian and CMS Consulting to expand its Managed Service offering for Microsoft technologies. Created as the Infrastructure Guardian Cloud Management portal, New Signature is integrating its Cloud Management Portal for Azure into its expanded Managed Services portfolio:
- Cloud Management Experience (CMX): The Cloud Management Portal for Azure is part of New Signature CMX, the managed services plan for Microsoft's cloud productivity (Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online) and cloud platform (Azure) solutions. CMX offers cloud advisory services, cloud operations services, and cloud governance services that are needed to manage all key aspects of cloud environments. It enables customers to quickly launch and use Microsoft cloud solutions without having to worry about legal, technical or pricing complexities.
- Infrastructure Management Experience (IMX): In addition to full cloud management, New Signature provides 24/7 enterprise-class systems management of network, server and application layers, including complete health and performance monitoring for on premises and hybrid cloud environments.
- Technology Management Experience (TMX): TMX is a managed services plan that delivers 24/7 full-service IT management through certified professionals. This includes end-to-end management of computers, laptops, servers, cloud environments, assets, vendors and mobile devices. With TMX, organizations can benefit from easy access to an instant IT department.
"The addition of our Cloud Management Portal to the Azure Marketplace offers enterprise users another great option to gain visibility and predictability in cloud consumption. With the new access option to the portal, New Signature continues to help organizations derive more value from their Microsoft cloud solutions," said Brian Bourne, President, New Signature Canada, and Executive Lead for the Cloud Management Portal. "The portal is an important component of our expanded Managed Services portfolio, which lets customers choose to make New Signature the strategic cloud partner for in-house IT departments or even become their instant cloud IT department."
