Estro Group: Childcare Provider Uses Cloud-Based IT Monitoring to Grow Business, Save Money
Estro Group cares a lot more about kids than computers. But as this childcare services business grew to nearly 600 locations across the Netherlands, its burgeoning IT infrastructure emerged as a roadblock to business growth. The company decided to outsource IT wherever it could, move to cloud-based IT services, and adopt Microsoft System Center 2012 to automate routine IT tasks. Estro Group also adopted StateView, a cloud-based monitoring solution from The Backbone based on System Center 2012. Estro Group uses StateView to monitor the health of all applications and servers and alert staff to potential problems. With tools that automate IT management and give staff insight into application health, the IT staff can better support the company's rapid growth.
