How Technology has Simplified Business

April 20, 2017

The future of business is here and that means complacency is no longer an option.  Living in a “comfort zone” when it comes to running operations can mean falling behind the competition; today’s environment demands flexibility to change to constantly evolving technology.

Advancements - whether it be phones, online security, applications, cloud or big data - have made us faster, more informed and have empowered us to excel beyond what we thought possible. We work remotely across multiple platforms and devices with virtually no need for paper. Stay competitive in today's market by harnessing the power of enterprise level IT solutions, with the cost and functionality designed for small to medium sized businesses.

Is your company keeping up?

Long View found four technological elements that have the biggest influence in the business world:

Mobility

In a competitive landscape, it’s imperative to be connected and reach your customers anywhere, anytime, on their terms. Your employees need the assurance that any device they use will be compatible across multiple platforms. Thanks to the latest mobile technology, we can do just that:  67% of small and mid-size businesses now view mobile solutions and services as critical to their business.*

Security

The biggest crimes today are committed through that screen you’re looking at right now – your computer.  90% of Fortune 500 companies have been hacked at some point in time* and smaller entities are not immune to security breaches. Luckily with innovations like HPE’s server and storage solutions for small and mid-size businesses (you can check some of them out here), you can ensure your important information is safe out of the hands of cyber criminals.

The Cloud

Accessing files from anywhere is now the norm; you no longer have to “go dark” when travelling for business.  Information can be accessed and edited from anywhere, keeping your team organized and in sync.  It’s now an affordable trend that’s easy to get on board with too:  61% of midsize businesses and 37% of small businesses already subscribe to cloud based back up and disaster recovery.**

Big Data

Companies are capturing data on your customers all thanks to business analytics.  Intelligence available to you in-the-moment is crucial to running a business these days – your clients expect you to know what they want without asking and if you don’t have the information, you can bet your competitors do.

No matter how you slice it, businesses run seamlessly when implementing a solid performance plan. If your company isn’t utilizing the latest in technology, maybe it’s time to catch up to the competition.  Long View is here to help; reach out to us and we’ll get you up to speed.

A powerful alliance: Long View collaborates with Shaw and Microsoft to create flexible hybrid cloud solution for ENMAX

July 5, 2016
CALGARY, Alberta (July 5, 2016) —ENMAX Corporation, through its subsidiaries, makes, moves, and markets electricity to residential, small business and large commercial customers in Alberta and ENMAX Energy is the retailer of choice for both The City of Calgary and The City of Edmonton. And with the support of a strategic alliance led by Long View, ENMAX has now successfully powered up in the cloud computing environment. “The world of IT is rapidly changing and this is having a significant impact on how we work and do business with our customers,” said Andrea Bastin, Vice-President of ENMAX Information Technology. “ENMAX is modernizing its technology ecosystem through prudent investment in solutions and services that improve efficiency and reduce risk.” Long View is working with Microsoft and Shaw Data Centre & Cloud Solutions in supporting ENMAX’s transformation to a hybrid cloud environment. The hybrid solution put together by Long View, Microsoft and Shaw provides security, agility, scalability, flexibility, and cost transparency. “This strategy will enhance our IT platforms at a sustainable cost and simultaneously allow us to move maintenance and support activities to expert external providers,” added Bastin. Long View’s One Cloud offering enables customers to provision, deploy, monitor, and manage their powerful hybrid cloud environment with a singular, coordinated and integrated game plan. “We’re so successful with our One Cloud offering because we provide a customized set of Hybrid IT solutions for every one of our clients,” notes Don Bialik, Long View’s Chief Executive Officer and founder. “With the experience and the expertise that Long View, Microsoft and Shaw Business have brought to the table, the net result for ENMAX is leading-edge technology solutions and a superior delivery system to accelerate change.” Long View’s One Cloud solution was focused on taking more than 350 ENMAX in-house applications and establishing them in one of three environments:
  • Public cloud, for many key IT services;
  • Private cloud, for specialized operations, through Long View’s hosted OnDemand platform; and
  • ENMAX’s on-premise data centre, for select mission-critical applications.
Long View’s One Cloud solution also includes management and operation of all three environments through Long View Managed Services, to reduce administration, management, and commoditized operations work. The One Cloud model allows IT to be consumed as needed, in a pay-as-you-go scenario, with workloads continually managed, maintained and migrated as required—at the right place, time, and cost. Long View was able to leverage its long-standing relationship with Microsoft to create that custom solution for ENMAX. With a software package that includes Microsoft Azure and Advantage for Office 365, and local cloud solution architects assisting with the project, Microsoft brought its global expertise and local delivery capacity to bear. “It has been an exciting time collaborating with Long View to help drive digital transformation at ENMAX,” said Janet Kennedy, president of Microsoft Canada. “The cloud offers unprecedented solutions, cost savings, efficiency, productivity, and reliability. It enables organizations – of any size, and in any sector – to collaborate, compete and excel in an increasingly mobile world.” Shaw Business also plays a vital role in the ENMAX solution—delivering a reliable fibre optic network and state-of-the-art enterprise colocation—involved in optimizing ENMAX’s data centre while reducing costs and infrastructure complexity. “Partnering with Long View and Microsoft has allowed us to deliver ENMAX a customized hybrid IT solution that leverages the power and flexibility of our state-of-the-art colocations data centre,” said Ron McKenzie, Senior Vice President, Business, Shaw Communications. “This custom solution will expand ENMAX’s operational capacity, allowing them to enhance their customer service experience.”   ABOUT LONG VIEW: Long View is one of the most powerful IT solutions and services companies in North America, with offices across the continent.

Long View earns inaugural Oil & Gas Industry Solution Provider award at CDN Top 100 show

May 5, 2016
CALGARY, Alberta (May 4, 2016) — In a challenging economic climate, agility is king. Far-sighted companies in the oil and gas sector know it—and Long View does, too. Since late 2014, the energy sector has been forced to weather low and unstable commodity pricing. In the face of this volatile environment, Long View—one of North America’s most powerful providers of Hybrid IT solutions and services—countered with prudent advice for its clients in oil and gas. Earlier this month, that leadership was recognized during the release of the CDN Top 100 Solution Providers of 2015 index, as Long View earned the inaugural Oil & Gas Industry Solution Provider award during the CDN Top 100 show in greater Toronto. “We are deeply honoured to win the CDN Top 100’s first-ever Oil & Gas Industry Solution Provider award. It provides validation that we are providing sound advice in the face of a tough economic climate,” says Dave Frederickson, Long View’s Vice President Sales and Business Development. “Our panel of experts, is providing valuable insight for our customers on cost savings in challenging conditions—whether it’s providing scalability for changing consumption requirements, using technology to boost innovation, avoiding unforeseen costs, or suggesting methods of boosting productivity,” adds Frederickson. The CDN Top 100 Solution Providers list, an annual ranking of Canada’s information technology industry players, is compiled by Computer Dealer News (CDN) and research partner IDC Canada, and based on the yearly revenue of Canada’s top IT channel partners. In addition to capturing the first Oil & Gas Industry Solution Provider award during the annual Top 100 Awards Gala on April 22, Long View also earned a Top 10 spot on the national list for the fifth straight year. Long View was ranked No. 7 overall, after earning an identical ranking in 2013, 2012 and 2011. This marked the second time in a month that Long View was named to a prestigious industry index. In late March, for the fourth time in six years, Long View was listed on the annual CRN Tech Elite 250—a North American index featuring solution providers who differentiate themselves by investing in IT certifications.
