Blue Chip nominated by IBM for Most Innovative MSP award

UK managed services award finalist 2018

We’re honoured to be shortlisted for this year’s UK Managed Services Awards, which takes place at the UK Managed Services & Hosting Summit in central London next week.

The hard work by our engineers in establishing a highly agile software-defined data centre is the main factor as to why IBM put us forward for the Most Innovative MSP award. Our clients have received significant business advantages through the SDDC’s speed and agility, along with our expertise in ensuring data security and compliancy remains solid.

Speed, efficiency and flexibility are crucial factors for business. The biggest benefit from the software-defined data centre is an astounding reduction in on-boarding time, from three months to just 1-2 days. This rapid deployment time even applies to IBM POWER and X86 systems.

Entire environments, even at large scale, can be built in a matter of hours rather than months.

Acknowledging the GDPR landscape, Blue Chip’s innovation delivers another advantage for customers. AI services, such as those provided by IBM, can be accessed without data leaving the perimeter.

Customers can access the latest IBM technologies through an OPEX consumption model; decreased processing time by a factor of 10 (without increasing costs); increasing online sales through faster processing and reduced cost per transaction for online travel searches.

An enviable range of accreditations come with Blue Chip’s Tier IV design data centre, such as PCI DSS Level 1; SOC2 and ISO27001. The team has certifications which include CCSM and CISSP ISSAP.

In the managed service industry, it is unusual to use high tech storage for data recovery. Doing so however allows faster disaster recovery testing; rapid recovery and increased consolidation.

Also, clients can now offer the same flexibility and speed that the public cloud delivers, but with Blue Chip’s tailored support for mission-critical services and reliability. The inclusion of IBM’s AI-optimised AC922 POWER 9 servers empowers Blue Chip customers to start AI projects easily and without data leaving their current perimeter.

This new and GDPR-friendly approach to an AI-enabled software-defined data centre will provide more forward-thinking, responsive, flexible and efficient managed services at an affordable cost.
