Why Engage NAK for an Azure
Well-Architected Framework Review?

Whether you’ve recently moved infrastructure, applications or services into Azure – or have used it for longer – aligning against the Microsoft Azure Well-Architected Framework unlocks numerous benefits.

Reduced Costs

Reduced Risk

Increased Productivity

Your business may be facing some
common pain points:

Security Concerns:

Given the breadth and depth of capabilities available in Azure, it’s easy to accidentally create a security hole, such as directly exposing a virtual machine to the public Internet.

Inadequate security exposes you to the risk of data breaches and reputational damage.

Unpredictable Costs

Using Azure shifts the traditional emphasis of capital investment into monthly operational expenditure.

Rapidly escalating or fluctuating Azure costs undermine confidence in your Azure strategy and prompt awkward questions from your stakeholders.

User Frustration

Without a cohesive and standards-led strategy for delivering Azure-hosted technology services, you risk creating single points of failure and performance challenges.

Users will quickly become frustrated with services that suffer from poor performance or are regularly unavailable.

Azure WAF Review Success Stories


TripStax, a cutting-edge digital platform designed for Travel Management Companies, leverages Microsoft Azure to connect with Global Distribution Systems like Sabre.

TripStax commissioned NAK to conduct a strategic Azure Well Architected Framework Review to align its infrastructure with Microsoft’s best practices. This review, in collaboration with the broader TripStax team, scrutinised their deployment across the Five Pillars of the Microsoft Azure Well-Architected Framework.

The outcome from the NAK conducted review, was a detailed report identifying critical priorities for improvement, particularly in reducing operating costs.

Scott Wylie, TripStax CTO, said, “NAK’s Azure WAF Review was a quick and easy process that gave us actionable insight to help improve our Azure estate. As part of ongoing governance and audit, I’ll be inviting NAK to conduct an annual WAF Review from 2025 onwards.”
