Challenge

In helping companies use modern IT infrastructures and solutions, one of IT sure’s biggest customers found themselves facing multiple challenges that resulted from transitioning to a new remote working situation during the pandemic. They needed assistance in maintaining the daily flow of information as the customer’s employees began to work from home.

Solution

Using Microsoft Cloud technology, Ingram Micro Cloud’s support and IT sure’s own expertise, they were able to transfer desktop workstations and PC applications to the cloud—so employees could work from home on their private computers. The first virtual workstations were available within a few hours and hundreds more became available over the next few days. Despite the major transition, productivity was seamlessly maintained.

Results

  • Seamlessly maintained productivity with hundreds of workstations in the cloud
  • Implemented a business continuity plan in a very short time and at a very low cost
  • Scaled the business in accordance with what was required to achieve success
  • Reduced acquisition and operating costs by choosing cloud over an on-premises solution
