More than likely, your organization is thinking about building—or has already started down the road to building—a cloud computing solution. There are a lot of questions and challenges you face as you embark on this new path, and the best thing you can do for your organization is to employ an expert guide to take you on your virtual journey.
MoreDirect, the enterprise sales subsidiary of PC Connection, Inc., wanted to move part of their infrastructure to the cloud. In order to ensure a successful transition, they engaged the PC Connection Professional Services team to design and implement a managed services environment, built on a standards-based infrastructure from Tier 1 manufacturers.
Since MoreDirect, like every organization, had some unique needs, the PC Connection Services team employed 4 steps to ensure a successful implementation:
- Investigating and interviewing user needs
- Analyzing business requirements
- Conducting comparative and cost analyses of different specific hardware and equipment options
- Providing consulting recommendations based on their extensive industry experience
In this episode of our Connection Point podcast, I join President of MoreDirect, John Thomas, as well as Carlos Covarrubias, Vice President of Systems for MoreDirect, to talk about this project—and how MoreDirect used the same services we offer to all our customers to overcome design challenges and build their new cloud environment.
