Overview

Brad Berry wears several hats at Delta Diversified Enterprises, Inc., a privately owned electrical contractor that has been growing steadily. Not only is he EVP and Chief Financial Officer, he also takes care of much of the company’s information technology. His IT knowledge isn’t surprising. With an electrical engineering degree from Arizona State University, Berry has tackled the company’s IT matters since a business partner put him in charge of Y2K preparations in 1998. Recently, Berry realised that between IT advances and increasing workplace demands, his business required he seek an outside vendor.

A top concern for the business is application availability and security of its data. Berry was aware that an unplanned event could jeopardise his IT operation at Delta Diversified. “I always worried about our servers going down if we had a break-in or a fire or a tornado,” he recalls. “The work it would take to go to our tape backup could take a week.” He needed assistance to watch over his IT operations, particularly from a secure data facility that could handle day-to-day operations.
