ONI achieves Cisco Advanced Collaboration Architecture Specialisation

We are delighted to announce that ONI Plc has achieved the Advanced Collaboration Architecture Specialisation from Cisco. This recognises ONI Plc as having fulfilled the sophisticated and value-rich training requirements to design, deploy and support comprehensive Cisco® Collaboration Architecture solutions.

Cisco collaboration products play an important role in how ONI manage and service its clients. Differentiating through innovative IT and cloud offerings, ONI’s customers experience quality, value and seamless support required for mission-critical applications.

“Increasing numbers of customers are moving to a subscription based service (OpEx) model in a drive to reduce up-front costs.” said Rusty King, Head of Consultancy & Professional Services. “Organisations know how quality collaboration tools help improve workforce agility, productivity and decision making and Cisco are leading this change through cloud-based collaboration tools.”

“Rather than take a ‘rip and replace’ approach, many want to protect their legacy investments in equipment and software licenses by re-deploying them in a more relevant and modern solution. The Specialisation formalises the close partnership between ONI and Cisco enabling the use of legacy assets and new technologies. These can then be deployed in a hybrid environment spanning on-premises, private cloud and colocation.”

“ONI’s support services also accommodate many of the day-to-day tasks that are often overlooked”, added King, “such as maintaining back-ups and ensuring service certificates and licenses are current and valid. All too often it’s the ‘hidden’ things that IT teams forget about that stop a system from working and bring services down. The outcome is often costly, as well as highly frustrating to both employees and customers. As part of ONI’s Business Assured, 100% Uptime promise, our preventative approach to support and maintenance means customers should never experience an outage.”
