Would you like a full-time job?
You’ve probably got one already.
Between the choice explosion and the ever-accelerating pace of change, buying and managing technology has become a full-time job for grizzled insiders. An impossible job for most CIOs and everyone else.
Even name-brand research houses struggle to keep up with digital transformation. Internet searches are a rigged game. Most webinars and events are transparent marketing. And increasingly, the right solution is just as likely to come from a vendor you’ve never heard of as from the usual suspects.
Your IT people are putting out fires. Who can keep track of all the household names becoming financially unstable – and all the startups with disruptive technology fairly eating everyone’s lunch? Your professional network offers blind men and women with the elephant – who only know the part they have some experience with – and are convinced of half-truths. And most third-party help you find consists of thinly-veiled salespeople – the incentives are all wrong.
Meanwhile, the stakes are existential.
That’s why more than 90% of CIOs across sectors now rely on trusted advisors*.
But how do you find the right one? An entity with true insider knowledge and privileged access? A business and technology advisor for whom staying on top of the changes, keeping vendors honest, and representing your interests exclusively is in fact a full-time job? A team to act as a permanent extension of your business? A long-term relationship where the incentives are all aligned correctly?

The Nerve Center of Your Business
Cloud-based infrastructures have already transformed not just IT but much of the way all business is done. IaaS’ benefits of agility, cost reduction, speed-to-market, key competitive advantage, scalability & flexibility, continuity & security, and future-proofing against business risk have only become more compelling – and the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) remains unbeatable.
We get it. Every company is fast becoming a technology company. And your IT infrastructure is the nerve center of your business. We put on CFO/CTO/COO hats and act as both technology and business advisors. We go well beyond features and benefits and provide customized risk and TCO analyses. We do not “default” to anything because in IaaS, the players change especially frequently. And we bring in vetted partners to solve any ancillary problem standing in the way of your implementation.
There is no “one size fits most” in IaaS – and the devil is often in the details. The only path to creating “raving fan” customers goes through a willingness to dive into the complexity, to remove weak links in the chain, and to ensure full lifecycle support.With 25+ years in IT including 15 years’ running a national MSP (IT Managed Service Provider), inside access, encyclopedic knowledge, and both consulting and engineering pedigrees, we’ve been advising companies on IaaS since inception.
