CIO Solutions of Santa Barbara Now Offers Microsoft Online Services

The IT company can sell, support and migrate clients to the cloud-based infrastructure

CIO Solutions has been implementing Microsoft Solutions in the Santa Barbara and Tri-Counties since 1986, making Microsoft Online Services a natural fit.

CIO is now able to sell, support and migrate clients to these cloud-based services. Microsoft Online Services helps customers cut the total cost of ownership associated with premise-based solutions by allowing customers the flexibility to migrate portions of their Microsoft infrastructure to the cloud.

“It’s not a fit for all of our clients, but it makes a lot of sense for some, especially for those who are in the SMB space,” said Andrew West, chief technology officer for CIO Solutions. “In Santa Barbara, most small businesses have few choices while maintaining relatively complex server and email environments. Microsoft Online Services offers these companies the choice to remove some of these complexities, effectively moving capital expenditure spending to operational expenses. We recognize the benefits that the cloud has to offer, and CIO Solutions is ready to pass on those advantages to our clients.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
