Big Opportunities In Managed Services
By Brian Albright, Business Solutions magazine
This cloud computing and application hosting services provider lands a unique project with a healthcare client that has a multimillion-dollar IT budget.
The continued expansion of hosted applications and cloud-based services has blurred the line between vendor and resellers. Increasingly, it is also blurring the lines between vendors, VARs, and their clients. Consider InsynQ, a provider of cloud computing and application hosting services. InsynQ is currently helping one large client virtualize its own application infrastructure, while simultaneously laying the groundwork for the client to sell its own managed application services.
InsynQ (a member of Dell’s PartnerDirect Service Provider Program) has been working with a large healthcare company that operates several dozen laboratory facilities nationwide to transform its distributed, on-premise application portfolio into a centralized, hosted infrastructure in order to reduce its IT support costs. The company also plans to turn its IT operation from a cost center to a profit center by offering access to a suite of hosted applications to the thousands of doctors’ offices that make up its customer base.
