GlassHouse Launches Transom

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. -- GlassHouse Technologies, the industrys leading independent consulting firm for IT infrastructure transformation services, is changing how services are developed and delivered in IT environments through a new offering. Called Transom, this new GlassHouse proprietary methodology transforms sub-optimized, reactive IT environments to become efficient, cost-effective and scalable by moving them to a service provider model. Transom is unique because it combines GlassHouse’s deep and broad technical experience touching on all aspects of the IT infrastructure with their practical, hands-on management of enterprise initiatives ranging from storage management, server optimization, data centers, disaster recovery and managed services.

When it comes to supporting the business, the service levels many IT departments can support are limited by the technology they have on hand, much of which was purchased piecemeal by various business units to satisfy their individual needs. The result is an ad hoc IT environment that is constrained, rather than propelled, by its technology investments. Subsequently, IT frequently fails to meet service delivery expectations, faces rapidly escalating costs and is opened up to increased risk.

“We are changing the conversation, and the position of IT in the enterprise,” said Mark Shirman, CEO of GlassHouse. “Traditionally, the IT team figures out what they can do based on the technology available. Our Transom methodology positions IT professionals to take a broader view and make technology investment decisions based on the needs of the business.”
