ITaaS – ECI History

In 2004 ECI was one the first companies to give small and mid-sized businesses an on demand IT “utility” company that turns on and off like a light switch and always works.  We were also innovators in the design and engineering of our data center as one of the first facilities to be completely constructed and powered by alternative “GREEN” energy.  The center has been off the grid since 2002, powered by solar, wind and geothermal systems.

Software as a service and managed networks were the ideas behind what we started but it has grown into a service and product mix that now is known as ITaaS – IT as a Service and ITaaUS – IT as a Utility Service.  Think of IT as a utility company just as the power to turn on the lights is always there and working when you flip the switch, so should IT be in a business environment.  With NetOffice and E3-IT products our services and products can and do produce a 25%-50% yearly savings in overall IT expenditures and the maintenance /support costs involved.

Fantastic video on the progression of information technology, researched by Karl Fisch, Scott McLeod, and Jeff Brenman. The video really makes it clear some of the foundations of the future ways we will think, be and act.  The ways business will be conducted and how our social lives will interact and the tools and the enviroments that will exist to make these things happen

A profound shift is occurring in the way that enterprise applications are purchased and delivered. Customers have become increasingly dissatisfied by resource-intensive application deployment cycles that take years and yield less-than-optimal results, and are actively seeking the ability to consume software products as services. The IT as a Service (ITaaS) and IT as a Utility Service (ITaaUS) models offers significant benefits to the end user, including reductions in cost, risk, and the length of time it takes to recognize value from the investment.
