“For Plymouth University, effective service management is all about mitigation of risk, and Aurora365 has been instrumental in helping us to shape our NOC Culture – ensuring that we’re in a position to react much more quickly when issues arise,” added Gary. “Universities are one of the most demanding IT infrastructure environments, so it’s been particularly important for us to take advantage of Aurora365’s proven NOC expertise to help us really track all the key performance elements that go towards creating a best practice Student IT Experience.”

I honestly believe that the service is second to none, it really is, it’s made my life an awful lot easier.”

When the global manufacturer Innovia Films signed up to Aurora365 it was expecting a cost-efficient infrastructure monitoring and management service that would help free up valuable IT department time. However, since first deploying Aurora365, Innovia Films has uncovered at least seven unexpected cost, security and risk management benefits as a result of more effective monitoring across the company’s global network.
“With Aurora365 we now enjoy full visibility across all of our switches, giving us a more meaningful understanding of just how our IT infrastructure is configured and a consequent awareness of the likely impact of any changes,” added Paul Carrick, Global Systems Analyst of Innovia. “Whether it’s more effective cost analysis, more efficient operational IT processes, more secure back-ups, or greater online safety, Aurora365 gives us a fantastic overview of our worldwide IT estate – enabling us to make smarter decisions for higher productivity, risk and cost savings going forward.”
