What are the challenges in digital transformation today and how Onix helps companies tackle them?
In today’s customer-centric world, choosing the right technology that delivers on both the present and future needs is the most significant challenge that a business faces today. As IT takes a central role in business execution, traditional, aging hardware and servers can be detrimental to the final outcomes. The growing demand for computing and storage scalability as well as efficient data backup and disaster recovery is adding to the pressure.
Founded in 1992, Onix is North America’s premier cloud solution provider from the time when ‘cloud’ used to be an abstract term. —Known for selling hardware and software products for networking in the early years of its inception, Onix has kept pace with the rampant technology disruptions and has made significant efforts to stay ahead of the curve. Today, our offerings include comprehensive digital transformation solutions and on-going support for cloud implementation and migration, cloud-based workplace collaboration, enterprise search, and map- and location-based services.
It was in 2002 that Onix became Google’s first enterprise search partner, and from then on, we evolved to offer the full spectrum of Google products, specifically the cloud platform and Chrome Enterprise, to foster agility and collaboration in a business establishment. In addition, we also offer Amazon Web Services and LumApps’ social intranet platform.
Give us insights into your strategy to help your clients succeed in their cloud initiatives.
Our professional cloud services help firms in fostering organizational growth. Before providing any solution, our expert IT professionals conduct a thorough analysis of the client’s business to understand their operations and challenges inside out. We not only help in migrating to cloud but also do the heavy lifting of cloud orchestration to manage hybrid cloud infrastructure on behalf of our clients.
As we tackle the complexities in change management, the resultant IT modernization helps the workforce to work smartly
Modern workplaces are more diverse, dynamic and widespread with workers scattered across different cities, states, and even countries. We have a dedicated workplace collaboration solution that accelerates a company’s decision-making capabilities by equipping employees with more intuitive, connected tools. We offer both software and hardware for real-time and secure data sharing across the organization from anywhere, at any time.
Amid the buzz around location-based services for improved marketing and sales results in different industries including transportation, utilities, logistics, insurance and retail, Onix helps companies with location intelligence services that include expert consulting and innovative cloud-based mapping APIs.
We also offer custom app development to help large, midsize and small organizations from various industries in solving their unique business challenges. We have created two customized cloud products, Equidox and OnSpend, to help companies improve their information accessibility and better manage their cloud spend. Equidox empowers organizations to easily convert inaccessible PDFs to WCAG 2.0 AA-compliant HTML and EPUB 2 content for customers with hearing, cognitive, and visual impairments. And, OnSpend helps clients to efficiently manage the budget and billing processes associated with Google Cloud Platform (GCP) accounts and projects.
Can you share with us a case study highlighting the benefits brought to one of your clients?
To foster a strong hive mindset through collaboration and drive the efficiency of its entire workforce, Alberta-based ATB Financial approached Onix. With us, ATB became the first bank to be fully driven by Google technologies globally and work smarter. We migrated ATB’s entire data repository—35 terabytes of data, including 340 million email messages, calendar items, and contacts—to G Suite. The migration of 7,500 users across 300 locations in the province of Alberta took just four months, with two months of prior planning. Post-deployment, our change management experts brainstormed alongside ATB’s leadership to make the crucial G suite adoption a success.
We not only helped ATB to create specialized workforce training and engagement programs but also got all workers to cope with the implementation and adoption effort. We continue to assist ATB to move along the cloud transformation journey to be more inventive in its services.
