ViaWest Client Ancestry.com Highlights How Tech Cuts Across all Industries
Virtually all businesses create or collect data that is important, often fundamental, to the operation of their organization, whether they’re a for-profit business, an educational institution, or a non-profit. Today, with the advent of robust data collection and analysis techniques, data is often one of the most valuable assets an organization has. Take, for instance, ViaWest client Ancestry.com, which actually started as a non-profit venture of the LDS church. Their entire value proposition is based on collecting, analyzing and distributing data about family histories. Their technical solution, which includes, co-location and database management, among other services, is absolutely vital to their business.
Often, depending what the type of the organization is, like a healthcare-related business, regulations may dictate that this data be stored and accessed in highly secure environments that the organization itself cannot practically provide. The organizations rely on third-party vendors who specialize in helping organizations meet these regulations to house their data.
Tech crosses the spectrum of organizations in that all organizations have a need to communicate—with employees, suppliers, partners, prospects and the public at large. This necessitates the use of computer networks, phone systems, CRM systems and on and on. With organizations spread out across different cities, countries and the world, a technical communication system is the only option.
