Our Company

Our mission is to help enterprises prepare for the cloud, migrate smoothly, and get the most out of their investment going forward.

Our service portfolio includes planning, training, migration, and complete or assisted project management that empowers your team and helps you make tangible time and cost savings.

Our story

Cloud Essentials is a team of experienced messaging and migration specialists who combine a deep understanding of Microsoft technologies with extensive, hands-on experience.

We’ve accumulated decades of know-how delivering complex projects involving business and technological change. Complexity is our comfort zone and we thrive on a challenge.

As a Microsoft Gold Cloud Partner, with recognition for breaking down the barriers to cloud adoption, we’re not here to shift licences – our business is making your cloud vision a reality.

We are a smaller, specialist service provider with a focus on adding value. If we’re not making your life better, we’re not doing our job. To enable this, we focus on fewer and larger enterprise customers, providing tailored services with attention to detail that goes far beyond the bare-bones requirements.

What we do

It can be difficult to stay on top of Microsoft’s cloud developments and make sure your business is getting maximum value from its investment.

That’s where we come in – Cloud Essentials will help you take full advantage of Microsoft’s cloud functionality and fill any gaps with complementary solutions.

We are proudly vendor agnostic, assessing the best tools for each job based on hands-on experience with similar projects in similar spheres. We’re not software resellers; we’re specialists in delivering solutions and building partnerships for the long term.

Projects are always planned and implemented against a cohesive project framework, which enables us to set realistic expectations for our customers as they embark on their cloud journey.

As a Cloud Accelerate Microsoft Partner with over 20 years’ experience in delivering messaging and transitional solutions, we can help you navigate complexity, explore a multi-cloud strategy, and take advantage of best-of-breed software as a service (SaaS) to exploit your cloud investment as your needs and business challenges evolve.

We've been helping enterprises cope with change since 1991.

Hear from some of our team members.

Chris Hathaway
Chris Hathaway, Operations Director & Cloud Advisor

I’m really passionate about helping our customers get to grips with how they manage, secure and access their data in the cloud. Data governance has become a theme that gets threaded into every project and it sets us apart from other cloud partners.

We take time to point out the implications of even the most basic cloud configurations. Storing what could be huge volumes of data in the cloud needs careful consideration before you launch feet first into anything.

David Kellett, Technical Director

Being unafraid of being pioneering is where we stand out. We often find ourselves in very niche areas – it means I oversee fewer, but more technically challenging projects, which I love.
