Technology solutions and partners: Cloud and infrastructure

User engagement

"Elevate your organisation's capabilities with a secure and scalable cloud infrastructure, fostering collaboration, flexibility, and innovation for future-ready operations."

Recent advances in cloud technology mean that it is now more accessible and ever for not-for-profit organisations to benefit from having a reliable, secure and effective IT infrastructure which supports their staff (and volunteers’) desired ways of working.

We have extensive experience of carrying out infrastructure reviews (covering both on-premise, cloud/SaaS and hybrid configurations) helping our clients to identify strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement with their hardware, software, networks, telephony, and security solutions.

We also regularly help with defining requirements for external service provision and then managing the procurement process to help our clients select suitable technology partners (whether just for certain areas of IT support, or as part of a broader outsourcing or managed IT services solution).

We give proper consideration to potential migration paths, selecting the right service and resourcing models, and ensuring robust security measures.

Whether you're looking to improve IT support for users, improve resilience, enhance data security, or achieve greater agility in your IT operations, we can guide you through the entire process, from assessment to implementation.

Why Adapta

Adapta are independent, not resellers, and do not receive any commission or income from suppliers. We therefore help you to define the service that you really need from your technology providers, rather than what fits best with what they happen to sell. We have extensive experience of managing IT services contracts and reviewing operations, and our highly experienced consultants bring with them a wealth of knowledge about best practice that can benefit your organisation.


We have helped many charities, membership organisations and other non-profit organisations with their Cloud and infrastructure projects. Below are examples of just a few of the organisations we have worked with.

"I would not embark on any IT project without first meeting with Adapta to understand how they feel they could support me. I have found their guidance and practical support invaluable…"

Chief Executive, Trussell Trust

“To achieve the level of change we saw in 6 months without the support of Adapta would have been impossible. Shortly after completing the project the pandemic hit. Without the work completed by Adapta, our organisation would not have been able to weather the pandemic and keep working.”

Chief Executive, Voluntary Action Islington

"ICT is an area where we do not have in-house expertise. There are now lots of companies trying to sell us services so it was very helpful to have independent and impartial advice."
