With the ongoing development of vaccines and gradual lifting of lockdowns in various countries, several industries are now preparing for a post-COVID-19 world. Organizations across the globe, with a renewed interest towards digital transformation, are looking out for solutions that facilitate working from home (WFH) and remote working, which entails greater dependency on IT and security infrastructures. On the other hand, technology trends like SaaS, hybrid cloud, and colocation, have changed the very definition of modern data centers.

Integrating multiple technologies into business processes can be overwhelming for enterprises, especially when taking into consideration the technical expertise and resources that may be required. In effect, many organizations need help not only to modernize their data centers but also to take care of underlying responsibilities that they are unable to prioritize due to resource constraints or technical limitations. Enter Vista IT Group—a technology service provider that helps companies move "Beyond IT."

Founded in 1986, Vista IT Group has grown into one of the foremost and largest family owned technology solution providers in the country. The organization specializes in data center management, IT and associated supply chain management, and outsourced managed technology services.

Vista IT Group leverages a state-of-the-art ISO certified integration and logistics facility to help clients make more efficient strategic investments in their data center. Their deep technical expertise and professional services help clients integrate sophisticated technologies that helps in the transformation to the modern data center. As a result, Vista's clients can achieve the efficiency they’ve always wanted by breaking down the legacy technology silos that have existed for decades.

Many enterprises struggle to devote resources to different aspects of their infrastructure due to reduced staff, complexity, or budget constraints. Vista IT Group caters to such clients with managed services by providing an extension of physical and virtual resources. The company offers a unique a-la-carte approach to delivering managed services where the client is free to choose the area of engagement where it wants Vista's help.


We're big enough to work with even the largest organizations but agile enough to shift resources and priorities on a dime

The most commonly requested services are backup-as-a-service and end-point protection. However, the company also offers assistance with remote monitoring, hardware-as-a-service, and hardware maintenance. Vista can bundle these individual services as part of a custom package as well to maximize internal IT flexibility depending on organizational resources. The client is free to suggest and modify the level of engagement to meet their needs.

In a case study that best showcases the proficiency of Vista IT's managed services, one of their clients experienced a malware attack which locked the organization out of its infrastructure. Fortunately, as a Veeam cloud-connect provider, Vista managed the client's backup environment off-premise using enhanced air-gap protocols where data is also stored on both disk and physical tape. The client called Vista, who, in turn, quickly assembled a disaster recovery team. They were able to resume operations in hours, whereas many competitive cloud offerings have recovery times measured in days, if not weeks.

To have earned so many such success stories, Vista IT Group leverages relationships with various big-name companies like Cisco, Dell, HPE, Microsoft, and VMware to name a few. The company serves clients of all sizes throughout the United States ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small-to-medium enterprises. As Jeff Stevens, President & CEO of Vista IT Group, says, "We're big enough to work with even the largest organizations but agile enough to shift resources and priorities on a dime." With that kind of flexibility at its core, Vista plans to concentrate growth efforts around the Mid-West region to serve mid-market enterprises and help clients prepare for a Post-COVID-19 world.
