ENSURING 24/7 AVAILABILITY OF IT INFRASTRUCTURE

One of the largest resellers in a leading online shopping marketplace in India needed help to keep pace with its rapid growth. Existing technologies, information systems and staffing needed to be evaluated regularly. There was also a need to maximize the availability of telephony, email, messaging, network connectivity, business infrastructure, office automation, and process automation systems.

The client partnered with Trianz to set up a managed services center to support its IT Infrastructure on AWS, thereby proactively and reactively addressing and resolving issues. We recommended processes that were not only compliant with industry standards and practices, but also rooted in experience with clients worldwide. With a well-defined governance structure and skilled resources across portfolios, Trianz built a managed services center that ensured infrastructure availability on a 24x7x365 basis. We also adopted a phased approach to transition work from in-house support teams to a fully managed services model.

THE BUSINESS CHALLENGE
