Rising Above the Competition in the IT Landscape
60% of Embee’s business is from its existing customers. What helps the team to rise above the competition include a number of facets. First, it follows an understand-evaluate-design-test-implement approach to add value to each customer engagement. They understand the current and near future business challenges and business objectives, evaluate solutions that integrate seamlessly with its existing infrastructure, design the solution architecture, test the same on a smaller group to overcome any challenges and implement it enterprise wide.
Some of its Microsoft success stories based on the above framework include:
- Being the IT consultant and solution partner of a global advertising agency, Embee pitched and implemented Office 365 to help the client collaborate better and improve data availability. With anywhere-anytime access the team remained connected 24*7 enhancing their productivity. SharePoint empowered the team to intelligently discover and share the content on any device. One Drive offered the client secure, reliable and unlimited storage space and backup features. And its inbuilt disaster recovery and uptime maintenance services helped the customer minimize its organizational risks and reduce the workload of the internal IT team.
Embee used industry-recognized best practices in the implementation and migration, where over 800 users and 700 GB of data belonging to the client were migrated to the new system.
- With a strong legacy system in place, our client was facing concerns over storage and security issues of the increasing volumes of multimedia and traditional data of the organization. Moreover, the back-up process was slow and tedious. Chosen based upon expertise and hands-on experience, Embee’s implementation of a hybrid cloud storage solution based upon Microsoft Azure and StorSimple helped the client, a global media organization, transform.
With StorSimple, the client now has unlimited secured storage capacity in the cloud, eliminating constant worries about shortfalls. It has dramatically reduced administrative overheads while achieving better disaster recovery. They have managed to slash down the time required for back-ups and restores.
