Expert-Only Engineers Design, Migrate, Manage and Optimize Your Hybrid Cloud

Maintaining on-premise infrastructure is costly, particularly for emerging and midmarket companies. Increasingly, organizations are moving workloads to the cloud to gain agility, scalability, accessibility, risk mitigation, and cost performance – allowing them to focus on growing their business and keeping employees productive. But finding cloud expertise in todays talent market is challenging and often cost-prohibitive. 

Mindsight is a recognized hybrid cloud and managed services provider based in Chicago serving midmarket companies. Our IT consultants and engineers are expert-level-only – AWS and Azure certified to help you assess where you are today in your cloud journey, migrate the right workloads seamlessly, manage processes and infrastructure along the way, and optimize the environments for ideal performance, accessibility, and cost management. Mindsight’s deep expertise across platforms gives you access to cloud talent as well as cybersecurity, collaboration, contact center and infrastructure expertise. We become an extension of your IT team. 

Mindsight is SSAE18 SOC 2 Type II certified. We adhere to ITIL-based processes and pride ourselves on tight SLA compliance. Once you’ve worked with our team, we’re confident you’ll understand the value that Mindsight delivers. 

  • ASSESS

    Typically, we find clients are overprovisioning – and overspending – on current cloud deployments by up to 80%! 

    Our highly certified experts assess your on-premise environment and review your hybrid cloud configuration to create a strategic cloud roadmap. 

    Whether you are currently operating on-premise or in the cloud, we will help you identify server usage metrics, application interdependencies, server interdependencies, and licensing.  

    Gain Valuable Insights from a Mini Cloud Assessment 

    Our experts step on-site for a two-hour dive into your infrastructure – identifying what you have, where, and why – and hand-deliver your Cloud Insights Report. The report includes the immediate next steps you can take to maximize your on-premise and cloud infrastructure for the world of tomorrow. Some report insights might include: 

    • High level assessment of whether the cloud is right for your organization
    • Recommendations for which cloud provider, or multi-cloud approach, would best meet your strategic needs
    • Application / server migration document overview

  • MIGRATE

    We help you migrate securely and strategically to the cloud while aligning to your organizational goals. 

    From single applications to entire shifts, our expert-only team of engineers can design and implement a custom-built migration strategy that makes sense for your business. 

    Our migration strategies align business objectives with the environment. Using a validated server matrix and measurable milestones, we’ll build, test, and deploy your cloud environment, providing you the technical expertise necessary to achieve all the benefits of cloud computing. 

  • MANAGE

    Mindsight managed IT services experts allow you to focus on growing your business while we manage your cloud environment – monitoring workloads, providing advanced alerting, patching servers, performing infrastructure support, and addressing ongoing security challenges in todays complex threatscape. 

    Our managed cloud services clients have access to our customer monitoring portal from day one, and the breadth of Mindsight’s services, including the largest expert-level-only engineering team and security specialists who provide proactive support. 

    Managing the cloud is different than managing an on-premise environment. If you choose to self-manage your cloud deployments, ensure your teams have defined levels of management and understand the complexity of cloud provider and business responsibility protocols.

    The complexities of migrating and managing cloud environments are the main reasons midmarket organizations often choose a managed IT services provider with deep, specialized expertise in designing, migrating and optimizing hybrid, multi-cloud environments. 

    Managed IT Services
  • OPTIMIZE

    We assist our managed cloud services clients in the continuous optimization of their cloud environments, whether public, private, hybrid, or multi-cloud architectures. For businesses already in the cloud, we assess, review, and optimize your current cloud deployments. 

    Some of the elements we analyze are:

    • Components/design architecture
    • Existing billing usage
    • Storage usage
    • Networking components
    • Cloud data center usage
    • Location usage
    • Redundancy

    We help our clients optimize costs, since we often find our clients are overprovisioning by up to 80%. We’ll help your team secure your cloud environments, optimize access to cloud-based applications and workloads, and ensure network connectivity.

The cloud isn’t simply a technology – it is a solution – and the cloud today supports disaster recovery, security, and operating services across the business.
