Happy Holidays to everyone from the EYP Mission Critical team! We hope all of our clients, partners and friends had a great 2019 and will get some well-earned downtime with family and close ones over the next few weeks before we all go charging into the New Year. On our end, we look back on a great 2019, and can’t believe that it’s been nearly two years since we became independent once again. Time flies when you are having fun no doubt.
This past year saw us continue to scale our client base, signing up over 40 new clients over the first 11 months, and continue to expand our presence within organizations we have been supporting for years.
We have also continued to expand our services over the course of the year and introduced a new Cloud Adoption service for our customers seeking to evaluate the cost and feasibility of moving applications to a cloud environment, as well as broadened our Datacenter Roadmap program, which assists customers with evaluating their overall strategy with regards to their datacenters – helping them determine the right mix of on prem, cloud and collocated workloads, and then working with them to implement this strategy. Just this past week we held a recent webinar on the top issues when considering a Data Center Transaction:
Co-location Services, Financial Requirements & Contracting SLA’s, which would provide significant value if you are contemplating such a program.
We have also increased our presence with our clients in traditional areas like datacenter MEP design and Commissioning, and focused on developing new Operational services for 2020, which will assist our customers (in particular Hyperscale and Colocation) in driving more efficiencies and reducing downtime in the many new facilities that have been constructed over the past 10 years.
Accordingly, we also see a need for significant retrofit and renovation work across our client base to bring facilities they have put into place even five years ago that need to be upgraded to address changes in IT and market demand. To address this need, we published an article focused on best practices in renovation and retrofits for live datacenters.
In the spirit of the season we are also developing our first “giving back” program at EYPMCF. The firm has chosen to support The Gary Sinise Foundation on behalf our veteran staff we are proud to have on our team. This foundation’s purpose is to honor our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. They are also known for steering a large proportion of their donations directly to those that have served, delivering over 91% of all dollars donated in 2017. As our firm, and the industry as a whole, employ a high percentage of veterans and first responders, our team feels it is very appropriate to be aligned with this cause, which is so important to our country. More to come on progress around this initiative in future newsletters.
