Old school, not old fashioned

We’re a consulting team based in Adelaide Australia specialising in cloud and telecommunication services.

Lets Talk

Manifesto

When building a consulting firm, the first place to start is the values. Once this is sorted then you can think about the staff, partners and customers you want to work with.

Found in the internet

Baked into jtwo is the early days of the commercial Internet. We think about corporate IT from this direction.

Commercially Minded

Our services are based on the simple idea that ICT is about enabling great things for the lowest cost and risk.

Integrate, don’t abandon

The cloud represents another tool in the box. It’s important to respect and leverage what we already have, not abandon what works.

It’s OK to have fun

We want staff and customers to enjoy the process. It might get hard but why not have fun on the way?

Hard is good

We think complexity isn’t a vice. It’s when the problem or the solution is hard that we see the biggest innovations.

Creative thinking

We expect creative thinking from our staff and our customers. No plausible solution is off the table.

Corporate grade problems

We want to bring new thinking to corporate grade problems.

Build and manage

We are prepared to stand by anything we build and deploy not just deploy and walk away.

What we do

We offer planning, transition and management services for the adoption of digital technologies

Telecommunications Consulting

Making sense of telecommunications in Australia is a challenge. Broad competition in corporate communications, the NBN and a movement towards workforce mobility make networking more important than ever.

Cloud & Infrastructure Consulting

The delivery of applications to the business requires infrastructure. The cloud offers a way of simplifying infrastructure, reducing costs and improving reliability and effectiveness. We bring a lot of experience with delivery of cloud infrastructure.

Latest insights from the jtwo team

  • Welcome 2020ne – “are we there yet?”
    “are we there yet?…. are we there yet?….” In vacations past, this was the back seat cry heard by many young parents as they sought the refuge of a far-away campsite or holiday house in search of some peace and quiet after a hectic and busy year.  Clearly, 2020 was […]
  • Disable-CsAdForest – “Cannot remove the Active Directory settings for the domain due to ‘FE’ still being activated”
    I’ve spent 15 years deploying on-premises versions of Microsoft Unified Communications, namely OCS, Lync & Skype for Business. During that period I did a lot of installations, but never had I done a full removal of the product. I guess that speaks to the usability of Microsoft Voice solutions. Once […]
  • Understanding Undocumented ARM Oddities
    Over the past year I’ve been working pretty heavily with Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates to create safe, reusable and consistent deployments of virtual infrastructure. When producing ARM templates, it’s important to understand what resource types are available, and what values to use in your template. I always use the […]
  • Undocumented ARM Oddities – .Net Core App Services
    Every once in a while, when working with ARM templates you come across something that is missing from the official Microsoft ARM template reference. In my case yesterday, I was looking to update the configuration of an Azure App Service to use the DotNetCore stack (rather than .NET 4.8). While […]
  • Azure Bastion – Unable to query Bastion data.
    I’ve recently setup Azure Bastion to give external users/vendors access to resources via RDP or SSH following these instructions: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/bastion/tutorial-create-host-portal The key permissions outlined in the prerequisites at point 3 are: A virtual network. A Windows virtual machine in the virtual network. The following required roles: Reader role on the […]
  • Get all restore points for an Azure VM
    Getting restore points out of Azure can be like getting blood from a stone. The portal likes to always set a custom filter showing only ~90 days and your Powershell cmdlet only allows for a 30 day interval for retrieval dates. When running ‘Get-AzRecoveryServicesBackupRecoveryPoint’ you get the following: Sigh.. I […]
