Top Questions
Does the INSPIRE-RETHINK need to take place in Riga?

No, we can also do it on one of your locations.


But, we prefer doing it at Atea Global Services in Riga as this will - if needed - give us immediate on location access to Subject Matter Experts (SME) in all areas. Our experience from already conducted workshops shows, that no matter how well prepared the customer and we are, during the INSPIRE-RETHINK workshops often new and innovative solutions are developed, which require access to SMEs right away...and, nothing is easier than to ask them to come to the conference room while in beautiful Riga.


What is the outcome of the INSPIRE-RETHINK workshop?

Very concretely we give you a well-documented roadmap for moving your current on-premise workloads to Microsoft Azure.

Give us a call and we will within 24 hours be able to quote you the Managed Azure Services you require - to your exact specifications.


I pay for consumption in Azure. Are your Managed Azure Services also priced consumption based?

Yes, some of them are. It depends on the nature of the Managed Azure Service in question.
