Global Manufacturer Selects Connectria for IBM i Remote Admin Services

St. Louis, MO (January 20, 2014) - Companies all over the world are now faced with dwindling resources pertaining to the IBM i platform. Connectria’s newest customer was no exception to this trend. When a global electronics manufacturer’s IT team was faced with a multitude of projects and deadlines, their CIO had to make a decision on how the team could possibly support their own existing hardware. On one hand, he could hire a full-time in-house team of iSeries engineers. Or, he could pay a manageable monthly fee to outsource the system’s on-going management to an already established and proven team of engineers. Since this particular manufacturer has 17 LPARS spread around the globe, hiring additional staff would have been an exhausting undertaking. Finding a reputable hosting provider, however, would take far less time and energy.

After looking at a number of managed hosting providers, it became clear that the manufacturer needed a dedicated team of experienced IBM i engineers to act as an extension of the IT team, and not just another 3rd party vendor. Considering the fact that Connectria has over 10 years of IBM i remote admin experience and dedicated IBM i engineers, Connectria was able to propose a logical and cost-efficient solution.

Now, the manufacturer’s internal IT team can focus on their respective jobs and not be side tracked by small projects and unforeseen server issues. Hiring Connectria to remotely manage their environment allows them to move more fluidly, provides 24x7 support and administration, and frees up their team to focus on core business projects.
