Case Study: Reducing the Cost of Ownership Through Cloud Computing
This Boston accounting firm has spent the past 15 years refining their best-of-breed tax consulting, compliance, and advisory services. They currently support corporate executives, entrepreneurs, private equity ventures, and more - but their digital assets were controlled by a third-party private cloud vendor. When the quality of their IT service began to lag, it became clear that a much needed switch was in order - leading them to iCorps and the public cloud.
They originally reached out to iCorps for a 360° technology assessment. They had spent the past three months working with their then vendor, trying to get their technology to a better place. When it became clear that their provider couldn't match our suggestions, the firm signed on as an iCorps Encompass client. This provided immediate maintenance from mid-level consultants, strategic senior IT leadership, system and server monitoring, equipment procurement, and account management.
Our consultants migrated their employees to Azure, Microsoft's public cloud platform, over the course of a single night - ensuring there would be no disruption to employee workflow. We were able to seamlessly integrate their line-of-business applications in the Azure stack, while adding layered security through Microsoft Intune and Windows 10. With these tools in place, the firm was able to cut the cost of their cloud ownership by 50%. Learn more about their digital transformation.
For the past 20+ years, iCorps has been refining outsourced and hybridized IT strategies for companies across the Northeast. If you are interested in learning how cloud-based IT solutions can support and drive change within your business, contact an iCorps expert.
