Pelican selected itelligence because, as Jeff Cushing, vice president of IT for Pelican, says, "We were looking for more than just a hosting company. We were looking for a long-term partnership that would develop and adapt as Pelican grew. According to Cushing, itelligence made it clear that it understood Pelican's challenges and had the resources to manage Pelican's hosting needs and also evolve with the company.
Once the contract was signed, the two organizations mapped out an aggressive, six-month schedule to migrate the data center operations from Pelican's headquarters in California to itelligence's data center in Ohio. The migration took place in early 2012, and, according to Cushing, the project went as planned. "While the size of the migration was concerned us initially, things went very well," Cushing says.
...
"While I have a strong IT staff, I want them to focus more on serving their internal users, not just on infrastructure," says Cushing. "Hosting with itelligence enables us to concentrate on getting more value from our SAP investment, and leave the core infrastructure to itelligence. Pelican's IT staff can now focus on optimizing our applications and getting the most from our SAP investment."
Overall, outsourcing proved to be a much better decision for Pelican than building its own data center, according to Cushing. "Building your own data center is an expensive proposition, and there are many viable alternatives," he says.
