Transforming IT Infrastructure into a More Agile Platform
Andover, MA based NaviSite is a leading international provider of enterpriseclass, cloud-enabled hosting, managed applications and services. “We partner with customers in the mid-market and enterprise segment to transform their IT infrastructure into a more agile and efficient enabler of their business growth by leveraging Cloud technologies, and in the process lower their capital and operational costs,” says Sumeet Sabharwal, GM, NaviSite. He goes onto add “We are in early stages of a significant transformation underway in our market as more and more companies shift away from a captive, fixed-cost, in sourced IT model to a ‘as-a-service’ model for their IT consumption – one where they are redeploying internal IT talent further upthe- stack to focus on unlocking business growth and enabling increased business agility by consuming the traditional IT resources in a outsourced service-oriented model.” This is reflected in the aggressive adoption of Cloud-based services and the continued double-digit growth of the Cloud market.
