In the quagmire of the covid-19 pandemic, there has been a significant shift in how businesses are conducted today, and the associated changes will stay for the foreseeable future. Many international companies–several of whom were already offering hybrid working opportunities–have allowed their employees to telework. This rise of remote working has left many firms scrambling to maintain their cyber security protocols while employees work from their homes. Businesses are also looking for cost reductions in day-to-day operations, and IT engineers seek flexibility, ease of management, and redundancy. The solution to such multifarious challenges lies in cloud technology. While enterprises rely on the cloud as a repository for backups, many aren’t certain how to best leverage it to bolster their digital transformation strategies. Rising to this occasion is iT1, a cloud solution provider that helps organizations identify the value proposition of the cloud, conduct risk reduction and compliance assessment, and implement the best cloud solutions according to their workload and operations. “As experts of the cloud offerings with regards to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), we help our customers better understand the cost structure and options of each cloud provider,” begins Wil Herrera, CTO of iT1.

iT1 was established by two very successful account executives in 2003 as a consulting firm for local businesses. To address the growing demand of its clients for cloud solutions, the company ventured into developing efficient and customized products. Fast forward to today, iT1 is a behemoth in on-premise or cloud solutions and provides comprehensive IT services. IT1 ensures the implementation of best-suited solutions by diving deep into its customers’ requisites and identifying the inadequacy in their infrastructure. The company has a 24*7 Network Operations Center (NOC), Help desk, and Lab services to deploy pre-configured equipment and a warehouse to store and deploy assets on clients’ demands.

The implementation process of cloud solutions commences with assessing the client’s business vision, workloads, environments, application workloads and dependencies, user access, and data flow. During this assessment, its teams determine which of the client’s applications could be migrated to the cloud with minimal modifications. “We know the cloud landscape very well and our engineers also comprehensively understand clients’ challenges. Our biggest strength comes from our ability to understand our customers’ business needs and develop a blueprint for their cloud solution, whether that is cloud-based or hybrid,” adds Herrera. With their long-standing expertise in Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and AWS, iT1’s teams work as subject matter experts and help their clients cost-effectively deploy the solutions.
In addition to providing consultation during the implementation process, iT1’s experts also provide constant assistance to their clients in the post-deployment phases to ensure the triumph of their cloud migration. Organizations can also employ iT1’s fully managed solutions, where it functions as an extended part of the client’s team and manages all the infrastructures, bridging their skillset gaps and enabling them to focus on projects and drive their business forward. Seldom can one find a firm as dedicated to its customers as iT1. Time and time again, the company has ascertained its proficiency in the domain and empowered its clients to jettison legacy systems and embrace the prowess of the cloud. To paint a better picture, Herrera shares a customer success story.

For a client attempting to migrate its applications into the cloud for the first time, iT1 assisted in developing a blueprint for the migration. By identifying all the single points of failures and developing a high-availability design, iT1 could deploy a solution that leveraged cloud-native tools for ease of management, data protection, and application recovery. As the client’s business model was already mobile, the cloud solutions enabled the employees to access the applications remotely and opened doors for the client to scale their operations whenever necessary flexibly. iT1 has scripted similar success stories for other clients where it provided zero on-premise hardware with all-cloud solutions that included active directories, identify management, business applications, collaborative tools, and integration with SaaS solutions. Looking ahead, iT1 envisions continuing to evolve with the dynamic IT landscape and pushing the boundaries of innovation in the cloud arena. “The vision is to help our clients with developing cloud-native applications that meet their business needs today but are flexible enough to be modified as their business transforms.”
