Commonly requested hardware items that continue to present slow delivery times include:

  • Laptops optimized for remote work
  • Desktop PCs
  • Spare parts, such as batteries and motherboards (we can help you check to see if they are under warranty)
  • Backup devices
  • Docking stations
  • Monitors (significant backup due to glass shortage)
  • Access points (for example, software controllers are delayed due to chip shortage)
  • Video cards

Compass Computing Group is here to help you get it faster and at the best price possible.

Advanced Azure Architecture

Some organizations are moving workloads to virtual machines. Others are re-platforming legacy .NET applications to Windows containers. Then there are others building cloud-first applications using PaaS services or microservices.

Compass Computing Group is a Microsoft Partner and direct CSP hosting provider. We build and deploy cloud-architected web applications for clients. Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Full Stack Web Applications
  • Relational & Nonrelational Databases
  • Web Caches and Sockets
  • Containers & Kubernetes
  • Application Downtime Resolution
  • Performance Optimization
  • Application Migration Strategy

Our Azure certified cloud architects will conduct a holistic review of your cloud architecture, ensuring applications are resilient, scalable, efficient and cost effective.

Microsoft 365 Applications Migrations

With cloud computing application offerings increasing every day, more and more businesses are making the switch to Office 365 for its cloud-based and productivity communication and collaboration capabilities.

However, migrating systems can cause headaches and frustration. Employees need help adapting to new systems and, of course, you need to ensure your data security during the migration, which can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months.

At Compass Computing Group, we utilize road-tested migration solutions that will not only minimize the impact on your current business processes, but also quickly reduce your legacy infrastructure costs, enabling your enterprise to start proving ROI from your new service.
