How an IT Diagnosis Led to Improved IT Costs and Operational Efficiency  

 WIN recently partnered with a leading not-for-profit health insurer in Wisconsin. Their services have grown to reach active-duty and retired military personnel, seniors, and families in Wisconsin, across the U.S., and around the world.  

IT Health Challenges 

Their IT department faced a number of challenges trying to manage complicated transport optical gear. This is the critical equipment that connects their office building and data center. It was expensive, highly-technical and their IT team members had little to no experience managing this type of transport system. In addition, they were leasing the equipment and paying for more than they needed.   

The Diagnosis 

WIN worked with the client to implement a unique solution that addressed all the client’s transport systems issues, as well as their requirements. We completed a comprehensive assessment that provided a full understanding of what the client was experiencing, and what they needed.  

A Good, Healthy Outcome 

We developed a 100G managed service solution utilizing a hardware encryption engine that managed traffic between the data centers. We also began managing every aspect of the service, including encryption, transport and fiber.   

Prior to partnering with WIN, the client was working with multiple vendors, which made communications more challenging. WIN provided thorough training on the equipment and its operation so the client could understand its value to the organization.
