Intellect IT’s appointment of Jesse Liberts to the role of Data Centre Practice Manager comes at a pivotal time where the new epidemics in IT – Big Data and Mobility- are driving an evolutionary change all underpinned by Cloud technologies.
According to Cisco, global mobile data traffic in 2013 grew 81%; in Australia this growth was 47%*- so we have some major growth still to come. This is in line with the increasing number of mobile devices we all seem to carry now. Security company Sophos released data last year showing that the average Australian now carries 2.6 mobile devices!^
The insatiable appetite for data storage also continues unabated driving a much deeper reliance on storage systems and technologies for all businesses which in turn leads to heightened demand for backup and disaster recovery solutions.
Nowhere is this change more evident than in the Data Centre. “The demands on IT are becoming more complex … but what we actually have to do is help our customers simplify their IT environments” said Jesse.
Jesse comes to Intellect IT with over 10 years experience in IT, from engineering through to pre-sales and business development roles. In particular, his knowledge of EMC’s vast storage and back-up portfolio is enviable. EMC have long controlled the Enterprise Storage market and after an R&D spend far exceeding any of their competitors, in 2011 made a foray into the highly competitive mid-market.
What is now available to organisations of any size is an end-to-end, completely integrated solution. According to Max Soukhomlinov, Technical Director at Intellect IT, “the ability to provide a well-integrated solution from the one vendor is worth its weight in gold. So the role we have created is a critical one giving us the ability to advise and deliver to our customers the best solutions on the market”.
Completing the solutions offered by Intellect IT is a range of comprehensive services led by the Expert Care team and supported by the highly experienced engineers and project managers.
