Why AIS Managed Services Solutions?

AIS Managed Services delivers a wealth of benefits:

  • Focus your staff. By using AIS Managed Services, you can offload your staff from tedious or technical IT operations so they can focus on projects that move your business forward. Just as cloud computing brings flexibility and efficiency to your IT infrastructure, AIS Managed Services does the same for your staff.
  • Accelerate solution delivery. Added IT support gives you the expertise and bandwidth to become a “Department of YES!” instead of a roadblock to new ideas. You deliver solutions faster, incorporate industry best practices, and streamline processes. Extra hands also give you the ability to elevate team member roles and skills.
  • Speed new technology adoption. When AIS manages significant pieces of your application infrastructure, we gain insight that allows us to provide new technology consulting that can modernize your software landscape and move your business forward. Technology is moving at an unprecedented pace today, and it helps to have a partner with a front-row seat to some of the most exciting developments from the most innovative tech companies.
  • Gain instant compliance expertise. Because we have deep experience with highly regulated enterprise clients, we offer a fast path to compliance with a variety of regulations, from HIPAA to PCI to FINRA and others, whether your infrastructure is running in a public cloud, on-premises, or in a hybrid environment. We’ll work with you to customize a program based on your organization’s specific regulatory needs.
  • Create predictability. By partnering with AIS for managed it solutions, you get a consistent and predictable monthly subscription fee, reliable communication with service providers, and 24/7 monitoring. Which means that you won’t be caught off guard by surprise price hikes, massive IT outages, or an overwhelmed helpdesk.

Proactive Managed Services Capabilities

  • Monitoring — Using the right tools for your solutions, AIS monitors PaaS, IaaS, and SaaS resources.
  • Alerting — AIS configures alerts that are sent directly to our support staff or yours.
  • Patching — AIS ensures that your software stays up to date through automated patch procedures.
  • Security — We prevent many security incidents, and when an incident does occur, we minimize the impact through early detection and resolution.
  • Backups — AIS offers machine-level backups, using repeatable, automated processes. Database backups are available as a premium offering.

Reactive Managed Services Capabilities

24/7 support requests and incidents — AIS offers priority-based, service-level agreements (SLAs) for response times up to 24 x 7 x 365.

Cloud managed services — As a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider, we are well positioned to offer one-stop cloud hosting and managed services solutions that simplify your operations and likely save you money.

Custom Application Development Services

Unlike traditional managed services providers, AIS is qualified and ready to add application development support to our proactive services. With decades of development experience, AIS brings PMP-certified project managers and top-tier software engineers to support your application development activities, ranging from software design and development to enhancements testing and deployment and backlog management. We break the “time and materials” mold and give you a fixed fee, keeping you within your budget.

Reporting Services

Data analytics are critical to staying efficient and profitable. Our business intelligence (BI) reporting services—which span support incidents, monitoring/alerting trends, SLA and update compliance, and cloud consumption such as Microsoft Office 365 usage reporting—provide a clear connection between costs and outcomes.
