The modern workplace
Working productively with Office365
The modern workplace is influenced by factors such as mobile working, work-life balance, job appeal, demographic change and the desire for greater efficiency.
In addition to Outlook, Word and PowerPoint, Microsoft Office365 also offers lesser-known applications such as teams or planners that meet the requirements of a modern workplace. In addition, the functions of the Microsoft productivity servers (Exchange, SharePoint, Skype for Business) can also be obtained as a cloud service. Cloud services make a significant contribution to a secure, flexible workplace infrastructure, increase productivity and agility, enable distributed work and reduce costs.
Materna supports organizations in implementing and operating the appropriate workstation environment. We deliver ready-made solutions and have extensive consulting and project experience in the areas of knowledge management and collaboration as well as content management, document management, archiving and portals.
The cross-industry offering includes solutions for a collaborative intranet. It promotes organization-wide and location-independent cooperation, work in project rooms, the exchange of information among employees and the joint processing of documents. In addition, Materna offers the integration of existing specialist applications or information sources into the familiar office environment.
Industry-specific solutions include the eFiles basic package, a modern eFiles system for public authorities based on the Microsoft SharePoint server. The eFiles basic package is very user-friendly, requires little training and is barrier-free because it integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Office. The solution can be operated in its own infrastructure and is also available as a cloud service.
Office365 is also available from Microsoft Cloud Germany. Due to data retention in Germany and the use of a German data trustee, this is particularly relevant for organizations that previously had concerns about data protection and data retention.
As a cloud solution provider, Materna is Microsoft's direct sales partner for Office 365 services.
Microsoft Dynamics as a platform for modern specialist applications
The demands on specialist applications have increased: Changes need to be implemented quickly and new applications need to be made available quickly. Access via mobile devices must be possible, as must web communication with customers, citizens or business partners. Dynamics365 is an ideal platform for quickly providing specialist applications, making mobile apps and web portals available and keeping them up-to-date at the touch of a button.
Materna has many years of experience in specialist process development. We advise organizations on how Dynamics365 can help them modernize existing business applications or introduce new, sustainable solutions. The offering also includes an interactive knowledge management solution based on Dynamics365 that can be integrated into an existing office environment or SharePoint-based intranet. This allows you to make knowledge intuitively available in your organization.
Dynamics365 is also available from Microsoft Cloud Germany. Due to data retention in Germany and the use of a German data trustee, this is particularly relevant for organizations that previously had concerns about data protection and data retention.
As a cloud solution provider, Materna is Microsoft's direct sales partner for Dynamics 365 services.
Apps & Infrastructure
Microsoft Azure, the Cloud platform
Azure offers a wide range of integrated cloud services: from simple infrastructure services such as virtual machines and storage to powerful services for real-time data stream analysis and machine learning. Existing infrastructures can, for example, be fully or partially moved to the cloud or provided with a redundant infrastructure. Completely new application scenarios are also becoming possible, e.g. for Big Data, business intelligence, simulations and video streaming.
In addition, Azure also offers enormous potential for application development, such as ad hoc test and development environments that are billed according to use and intelligent services that can be integrated into your own applications. However, the Azure platform is not limited to Microsoft technologies. It also supports open source technologies such as Linux, Docker, Java and PHP as well as virtual machines with applications or environments based on Oracle, IBM and SAP.
We realize your individual developments in the cloud on the basis of Microsoft Azure.
- Programming services in the cloud
- Migrate on-premise solutions to the cloud both as a complete migration and as a hybrid approach
- Creation of architectural concepts
- Configuration and connection of Infrastructure as a service, continuous integration and delivery
- Use of Azure services as management backend of Materna's own cloud solutions or partner solutions
The Azure services are also available from Microsoft Cloud Germany. Due to data retention in Germany and the use of a German data trustee, this is particularly relevant for organizations that previously had concerns about data protection and data retention.
As a cloud solution provider, Materna is Microsoft's direct sales partner for the Azure services.
Not everything should be in the Cloud
Microsoft brings innovations not only for the cloud
Microsoft pursues a hybrid strategy. In addition to cloud services, products such as Office, Windows, Windows Server, Exchange, SharePoint Server, SQL Server are constantly being further developed. Materna helps organizations design, implement and operate their own IT landscape based on these products. Migration and consolidation are also part of the offer.
In addition, we implement projects based on .Net technologies. We support you in all phases of a project from requirements analysis and conception to implementation, testing and rollout of individual solutions. We have particular expertise in mission-critical applications, C#, Microsoft SQL, WPF and Web interfaces, test driven development and agile methods.
Management of IT infrastructures
Client, infrastructure and Cloud management
Cloud Management for Microsoft Azure
Materna offers solutions for managing your cloud and data center. We support you with consulting and technology to transform your data center into an internal Trusted Cloud Provider, so that you can operate and control the entire data center management agilely, scalable and automated. We advise and support you in integrating your IT infrastructure automatically and efficiently with Azure (Infrastructure as a Service). We also design and implement Office 365 and migrate existing on-premise environments.
Service monitoring with Microsoft SCOM
Materna supports you with comprehensive services to further optimize and automate the use of Microsoft products for monitoring and analysis. We have extensive experience in the design, development, implementation and use of Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM). SCOM offers central service-oriented monitoring and can be efficiently integrated into existing Microsoft landscapes. Another advantage is that the software recognizes the connections between the IT components and can therefore also evaluate service availability. Overall, Materna pursues a comprehensive service monitoring approach, which includes SCOM, but which we can also supplement with special solutions such as AppDynamics if required.
