Published on : 11/2/2020

SOMERSET, N.J. -- (BUSINESS WIRE)--- SHI International, one of the largest IT solutions providers in the world, today launched Stratascale, a new subsidiary of SHI that will deliver high-value consulting and professional services that empower business leaders to achieve true Digital Agility for their organizations. Rooted in SHI's three decades of experience, Stratascale brings together the brightest technologists and practitioners, proven processes, and the latest technologies as it shares real-world wisdom to support cloud, automation, digital experience, data, and cybersecurity initiatives.

"So many of our customers are grappling with their own unique challenges related to achieving Digital Agility," said David Olzak, Senior Vice President at Stratascale. "They have clear, ambitious goals, they need to stay competitive, and they want to uncover fresh ways that technology can accelerate their growth. Stratascale was created to provide business leaders a technology roadmap along their journey, helping them overcome obstacles and achieve results."

Stratascale engagement starts with connecting customers to advisory capabilities rooted in research, innovation, and plausibility. This is followed by strategic planning and design, from assessments and solution design to proofs of concept and project planning, all run by senior-level strategists and practitioners. Deployment and implementation spans cloud migration, systems integration, infrastructure and app modernization, and enterprise risk management. Once the initial solution is delivered, the Stratascale team focuses on optimization and management, from health checks and benchmarking to managed cloud services to ongoing program management, always advancing customers' technology in sync with their changing goals and evolving markets.

Stratascale will focus on five major practice areas:

  • Cloud - Embrace the benefits of public and private cloud with a complete portfolio of advisory, consulting, design, implementation, and technology adoption services
  • Automation - Overcome the limitations of traditional infrastructure and application delivery
  • Digital Experience - Lifecycle approach to delivering services and applications securely, while looking after performance and user impact
  • Data Intelligence - Realize the full power of data by making it structured, understandable, and available to stakeholders
  • Cybersecurity - Address the evolving threat landscape with a more secure environment for infrastructure, data, and people

"Customers have always asked SHI to listen, understand, and advise them on how to best meet their changing business and IT needs," said Thai Lee, President and CEO of SHI. "However, these increasingly strategic conversations require actionable resolutions at an ever-faster pace, which is why we created Stratascale. Stratascale is how we can quickly dedicate expert resources to a specific set of needs and offer a more consultative and holistic collaboration. From new ideas to prioritizing deployments, the Stratascale team can work together with a customer's existing SHI account team-leveraging our strong vendor partnerships and product and program expertise-or customers can engage Stratascale independently of SHI. Either way, Stratascale will lead the way in utilizing technology to solve business challenges."
