Adam Burke Quest headshotTechnology is here to help you run your company. But as that technology becomes more complex, it’s easy to lose sight of what you’re trying to achieve as a business. So what’s the secret to getting the most out of your network?

Don’t invest in technology. Invest in capabilities.

This is possible with hybrid networks that leverage on-premise equipment and public cloud resources. Hybrid networks give you the flexibility and scalability to build out your network capabilities quickly and easily while minimizing your capital investment. Here at Quest, we’ve been helping clients manage their technology for over 30 years. As an IT company, we have the tools and experience to help you extend your capabilities far beyond the limits of your data center:

Assessment Services: Not sure how to proceed? Quest offers a number of different Assessment Workshops to help you determine the current state of your company, where you need to go, and how you can get there. For example, our Security Workshop identifies your current security vulnerabilities and how to shore them up through a threat-centric approach to security, facilitated by Cisco next-generation technology. Similarly, our Disaster Recovery Workshop assesses your company’s preparedness and how you can strengthen weaknesses to minimize the impact of a disaster or disruption to your business continuity.

Cloud and Managed Services: Quest was one of the first companies to offer Cisco Powered services in Private, Public and Hybrid delivery options. Today we offer a powerful combination of Cisco Powered services, including IaaS, DaaS, and DRaaS. We’ve continued to evolve our services and are now also one of the leading providers and integrators for the Cisco Cloud Architecture for the Microsoft Cloud Platform.

Professional Services: Need to figure out how to implement a specific application? Our internal application development team can work with you to build exactly what you need. We can even help with augmenting your IT staff.

At Quest, we believe in taking a company-wide approach to your network. The impact of IT affects the entire company. After all, the best security and disaster recovery plans won’t work if the people they are protecting won’t work with them. This means the right stakeholders need to be part of the process of determining how to get the most out of your network.

“Quest is fundamentally different from its competitors.” That’s what Mike Perusse, CTO/CIO of MegaPath, had to say when his company turned to Quest to help them move to the cloud. Perusse acknowledged that a managed cloud environment could deliver savings of at least 20% as MegaPath evolved into three separate businesses. “Quest evaluates your business – your goals, strengths, and weaknesses – and then responds based on what you need, not based on what they offer.”

Discover all the different ways Quest can help your business adapt and thrive with evolving technology through our online Playbook. You can also learn more about each of our Quest Workshops by contacting programs@questsys.com.
