Strategic Sourcing Services to Secure Qualified Hosting, Colocation, and Cloud Services Providers
Source One is the premier Procurement Services Provider with specific expertise in sourcing best-in-class hosting, colocation, and cloud services providers.
Finding the best-fit hosting, data center, and cloud service providers that can handle your evolving technology needs at a competitive price point can be challenging. Many companies simply do not have the internal resources or expertise to manage hosting, colocation, or cloud services, and sometimes simply do not have the infrastructure to effectively manage business continuity or disaster recovery processes to protect against outages. Without the right benchmarking and market intelligence, companies struggle to increase capacity and scalability in their secure data storage without exceeding budget.
Source One recognizes the difficulties that IT departments are facing and can help directly improve the way its clients manage their hosting needs. Our Hosting and Colocation experts apply strategic sourcing and negotiation best-practices to secure the best hosting, colocation, and cloud services at the best price.
