CIO Solutions of Goleta Makes List of Fastest-Growing Companies

IT management firm recognized by INC 5000

CIO Solutions of Goleta was recently selected by Inc. 5000 as one of the fast-growing companies in the United States.

“The award symbolizes our commitment to customer service, our clients and the core values that CIO Solutions has had since its inception,” said John Petote, CEO of CIO Solutions.

The growth corresponds to an increased willingness for companies to look to outsourcing the management of their IT Infrastructure as a plausible option.

“We have been able to demonstrate time and time again that when companies outsource their IT they are able to reduce the total cost of ownership over the life of their IT assets as well as gain an increase in response and resolution times for their user populations,” said Eric Egolf, president of CIO Solutions.

The growth also has been related to a new form of IT outsourcing called Private Cloud Computing.

“Many of our traditional customers who were only comfortable with their applications running onsite on servers they own are now looking to solutions providers like us to move those same applications to a more secure and reliable Private Cloud Computing Infrastructure,” said David Ashamalla, chief technology officer. “We have seen customers who like the concept of Public Cloud Computing but don’t want to change their applications or business processes migrate towards Private Cloud Solutions as it allows them the same level of productivity and flexibility they are use to, and gives them the added benefit of mobility.”

CIO Solutions has been providing IT management and design services to the Tri-County area since 1986. CIO specializes in helping businesses focus on their core business by designing and managing their IT department. In addition to managing IT networks, CIO also provides consultation on Private Cloud Services, Enterprise Storage, Virtualization, VoIP Phone Systems and other solutions.

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!
