“What do you need?” the president says. “
“Well, I think we need to do a cloud migration,” says the IT director. “We can do it with minimal time and effort. I can do it in a few steps internally with the go ahead from you.”
“Alright,” says the president. “Just get it done. I want costs on the table on Monday. If you need some extra help, put on a couple of contract workers. Hey, thanks, you’re the best!”
Ahh, well 5 years later, here we are with a new IT manager in place, and the story is pretty much the same. Operations are slow. Output is slow. Numbers aren’t where they should be. People are complaining about response time. Only now, after several hundreds of thousands of dollars have been spent on “modernization” efforts, systems still aren’t functioning.
“Has anyone worked with MMI?” says the president.
“I know they just helped a high-end retailer through a real mess,” says the sales manager. “They were talking about it at the Javitz show. MMI was on it!” she said. “Don’t worry, I got their contact info. I’ll set something up for you this week.”
By now, the senior leaders are fully engaged. They are seeking out MMI, a leader in innovative solutions to cloud transformation, using highly skilled IT experts and strategists to come up with a tailored solution. MMI knows that long-term results are dependent upon a holistic approach, which addresses each department’s specific needs. Success comes when everyone at the company gets to weigh-in on (from senior leaders and department heads, all the way to the mail center workers). MMI is the premier company to help decipher operational patterns, and then use this knowledge to spearhead a solution that works for you.
Where did this company go wrong initially? Well for one, there was an unrealistic expectation on the internal IT team to figure out a solution on its own. Without specific and advanced knowledge of cloud transformation, it was like telling the team to find a needle in the haystack.
Well-intentioned IT teams keep systems running, but they are not usually hired as efficiency/security experts. There is a whole different skill set needed to keep this company running and secure. That is where MMI comes in!
