Storage-IT Solutions is a data-centric solutions integrator that leverages industry standard best practices to implement leading solutions for the modern enterprise. Their mission is to ensure performance and integrity of data as it moves through the data center into networks that are being challenged by complexity of end point growth and rapid deployment of mobile infrastructure. Their Audit procedures provide complete classification of your data and a detailed understanding of the way it moves through your infrastructure to the end points. This understanding determines specific infrastructure requirements enabling a solution to be tailored to organizational initiatives while minimizing expenditure.
directIT Chicago is a strategic event where we welcome the Office of the CIO to share strategies, successes, failures, and lessons learned as they are an important part of the continual education of successful IT leaders. The role of the CIO requires an effective leadership model that will incubate a team of forward thinking innovators who can effectively leverage technology to support the goals of the business and its many facets.
