Insight Surpasses 1 Million Cloud Seats Managed Across The Globe

Insight Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: NSIT), a leading global provider of technology solutions, has exceeded a significant milestone in the emerging area of cloud computing, having now sold more than 1 million seats in various cloud offerings. Insight offers a collection of Cloud solutions including messaging, security, infrastructure and collaboration.

“Industry trends continue to point to cloud adoption as part of the overall IT strategy for businesses. We anticipate this shift will accelerate growth in all client segments including public, private and hybrid clouds, as clients migrate their selected workloads away from traditional on-premise IT infrastructure and into the cloud,” said Ken Lamneck, Insight President and CEO.

Why is cloud computing so important?

  • 2 billion individuals on the Web (30% of global population) and rising
  • 250 billion emails are sent each day
  • 1.4 billion PCs and over 10 billion Internet connected devices

"We are seeing IT workloads like The Collaboration Suite (email, messaging and conferencing), Security solutions, Test and Development environments and in general, Compute on Demand as the early movers to the cloud,” said Bill McCarthy, senior vice president of Cloud Services for Insight North America. “In fact, more and more of our client conversations are around which workloads do they move first to the cloud and how do we help them get there.”

“Cloud computing can take away the stress and reduce the expense of technology implementations for businesses,” stated Mark Green, EMEA e-commerce and cloud director at Insight. “We understand that our clients have different cloud computing needs, and we can deliver a wide array of IT solutions that support those needs. Our clients only need to come to one place to securely access the Cloud Services they need from a partner they already trust.”

Insight’s recent acquisition of Ensynch, a leading professional services firm with multiple Microsoft Gold competencies and solutions across the complete IT stack, further strengthens Insight’s Cloud Services capabilities, adding to its 1,100 services professionals worldwide.
