IDS: Delivering a Proven Methodology in Data Center Solutions and Cloud Services

CIO VendorJustin Mescher, CTO
With a continuously transforming IT landscape, CIOs are being forced to take a strategic look at how they deliver the best solutions for their organizations. In addition to navigating a constantly changing course, CIOs are challenged to adopt new tech-nologies like Cloud and integrate them in their existing technology infrastructure. We’ve found that most successful CIOs are uti-lizing partnerships with experts in their fields to help them strategize for success.

One company we are continually seeing spearhead innovative solutions for their customers is IDS, a full-service Data Center Technology Integrator and Cloud Services Provider headquartered in Chicago, IL. IDS uses a unique methodology when working with customers to design, architect, and implement infrastructure solutions both in their data centers and in the Cloud. This methodology has brought them a reputation of trust and excellence with both their customers and partners, proving they only deliver the best. IDS is continually recognized in the marketplace and they are the only EMC reseller to have won the coveted Velocity Services Quality Award eight years in a row.

Matt Massick, Chief Executive Officer at IDS explains that the people behind the technology are incredibly important as well. He says, “You can have the best technology in the world and have the entire project fall apart without the right people behind you. IDS is those people.”
What Makes IDS Different?

Starting with data storage, IDS built a concrete methodology that they were able to expand to other products and services to better assist their customers.IDS's primary areas of focus are Storage, Backup, Disaster Recovery, Virtualization, Data Analytics, Mobility, Compute, Networking, Security, Managed Services and Cloud. This broad expertise with so many manufacturers and services allows IDS to provide customers with an agnostic view of best-of-breed technologies and leading practices for deploying in private, public, and hybrid Cloud environments.

In fact, part of what differentiates IDS is the time dedicated to choosing the right vendors for each customer. IDS's Chief Technology Officer, Justin Mescher, explains why this strategy pushes IDS a step ahead. He says, “Our technology agnostic approach helps us stay in front of industry trends, ensuring that IDS clients are getting the best technology solutions available.” Customers across different industries like healthcare and finance appreciate the dedicated approach to every client that IDS delivers.

With incredible expertise and strong technology partnerships, there’s not much that stands in the way of this passionate company as they move towards continued growth and success.
