For almost twenty years, Conscia has been a leading European provider of secure, reliable IT infrastructure.
With a history of building and delivering fully managed solutions—largely built from Cisco’s broad portfolio of market-leading technologies—Conscia is moving toward delivering IT as a service to its customers. Furthermore, Cisco’s Cisco Plus announcement represents a significant step in this journey.
The road to IT as a service
The destination to which we are all traveling is obvious: Many customers ultimately want their IT infrastructure—whether on premises or in the cloud—delivered as a service. They want to focus on their core business, such as healing patients, educating students, and providing public services, while paying predictable monthly fees. Customers want to devote fewer of their limited resources to tactically managing IT infrastructures.
Delivering and managing IT infrastructure throughout the product lifecycle is what we do here at Conscia. We consider ourselves a “network of knowledge” as we leverage our experience and core competency in managed, secure IT infrastructure to deliver the best possible IT solutions to our customers.
At Conscia, we already offer an IT as a service, including managed services, customer experience, and our own Conscia Cloud. But it has been challenging to create a complete IT- as-a-service offering. Quite frankly, the technology and supporting business models from Cisco and other vendors were not entirely in place.
