Back Office Solutions
The term "back office" comes from the building layout of early companies where the front office would contain the sales and other customer-facing staff, while the back office would be manufacturing, developing the products or involved in administration behind the curtains.
Although the operations of a back office are seldom prominent, they are essential contributors to the business. As a result, the applications used by back office employees to do their jobs are increasingly considered “mission critical,” meaning they cannot fail if the business is to survive and prosper.
With mid-sized enterprises facing continued IT budget pressure, how can CIOs reduce costs for deploying and managing mission-critical back office applications and maintain the necessary service levels? HOSTING is helping a growing number of midmarket enterprises do exactly that.
Unlike most other cloud hosting services, HOSTING’s products are designed to meet the rigorous and unique requirements of mission-critical applications that must remain Always On. The basis for HOSTING’s services are its Managed Cloud Foundation, which uses a building block approach to combine the best capabilities of several cloud deployment architectures.
HOSTING then layers on a broad array of availability and recovery services to provide resiliency in the face of system or even data center failures. In addition, it offers three tiers of security and compliance services designed to protect applications in even the most regulation-intensive industries.
Finally, HOSTING supports all these services using ITIL-based policies and procedures to ensure that critical processes like change control happen correctly. To find out more about how HOSTING is helping mid-sized enterprises deploy back office applications, read these case studies.
