Managed Hybrid IT
Today’s companies need personalized IT support that’s hyper-focused on the outcomes that matter. A shared IT service agreement with another government agency meant SaskWater wasn’t receiving the attention needed to support their IT infrastructure, applications, and customers. SaskWater was ready to modernize their infrastructure, but knew they needed a trusted partner that was invested in their outcomes and long-term strategy.
“WBM is a great partner for SaskWater. They really take the time to understand our business and work well with other partners that are involved, including the application vendors, which we feel is important to the success of a long-term engagement. WBM’s investment in quality resources that have the experience and expertise in the area of co-location and cloud solutions is exceptional. They designed a solution that is robust, and the performance exceeds our requirements.”
