Extraordinary’s 2014 Year in Review
Posted by Andrew Ogilvie in Extraordinary News
2014 has been another year of strong progress for Extraordinary, featuring important new contract wins in areas such as managed services, scalable solutions attuned to the growth needs of many of our mid-sized customers, managed network services for blue-chip companies and additional private cloud contracts.
After a comprehensive marketing review exercise, the summer saw Xtraordinary Networks rebranded as Extraordinary Managed Services with a new name, logo and website. Although our core values of delivering exceptional services remain the same, we decided a slight tweak of name and fresh look was in order. In terms of market focus, while we continue to deliver infrastructure hosting services, we have made a strategic decision to expand our offering in growth areas such as security, data intensive platforms and managed services.
In July, members of our executive team were in Washington D.C. for a week to participate in the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference and gain global insights into the IT industry’s new trends and innovations.
In September we achieved ISO 27001:2013 certification. Obtaining this internationally recognised information security standard validated our ongoing commitment to securely managing systems and customer data.
December saw us adding an additional 20Gbps of Tier-1 network capacity, spread across our London and Edinburgh facilities, as part of the continuous development of our network capacity and throughput.
With 2015 just around the corner, we have more exciting projects under way such as ISO 9001 certification, launching our new client helpdesk, joining Microsoft’s Cloud OS Network and further investment in SQL and private cloud training for our staff.
At this special time of the year we want to thank our valued customers for their business and continued support over the years. We wish you all a very happy festive season and all the best for the New Year 2015 ahead.
