A&M helps companies around the world address complex business issues to boost their productivity and performance. Not surprisingly, the organization evaluates its own business through the same lens of operational excellence. Recognizing that its outsourced data center solution provided opportunities for improved operations, A&M jumped to action.
“Our former data center was operating as a silo,” said Collin John, global system engineering manager for A&M. “My objective was to integrate it into our business operations to improve efficiency and productivity.” A critical element of this plan was creating an on-premise feel while managing the data center remotely. The company turned to colocation services to achieve this goal.
To do this, A&M needed visibility into the data center environment, including its power use, security controls and workflow processes.
