MORRISTOWN, N.J., April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Alliant Technologies, a global IT infrastructure company, announced today that it is changing its corporate name to TenFour. The name change reflects the company's leadership in the IT space driving the innovations needed to shape the future of IT.
The company's new name, TenFour, reflects the brand promise to its customers that their message of frustrations with the IT industry has been received. TenFour saw the future and developed a solution that takes IT innovation to new and exciting heights. Under this new namesake, TenFour will integrate contemporary models and technologies that improve the customer experience in far-reaching ways. CEO Bruce Flitcroft describes the mission of TenFour:
"IT as an industry is going through the same evolution that we saw in electricity, gas, software-as-a-service (SaaS) and Cloud computing. IT departments spend way too much time, budget and people maintaining IT infrastructure systems when instead the business wants to focus more on innovation and not bear all the risk. They just want to pay for what they use. We are leading this change. TenFour is the first IT infrastructure utility company."
Under this new utility model, core and distributed infrastructure will work in an increasingly seamless and simplified manner so that clients can focus on scalable company innovations. To this end, TenFour is extending beyond the typical cloud compute and storage platforms, to other business-enabling technology platforms.
"Looking towards the future, we are excited to usher in a new era of IT infrastructure and innovation with TenFour," said Mike Funk, TenFour's President. "Our IT infrastructure utility model improves and revolutionizes the way that IT is consumed and delivers exceptional, private domain global IT infrastructures that are simpler, have fewer defects, and cost less to operate than traditional models."
The most significant difference in TenFour's model is that unlike cloud compute and storage solutions, the model does not feature shared platforms, target rich security challenges, a lack of visibility, or complex integration challenges. By consuming IT as a utility, TenFour's clients achieve a multitude of unique benefits, including a pay-per-use consumption model, a proactive equipment refresh that removes technology obsolescence, and a shift of IT risk to TenFour.
Through innovative practices, TenFour works in close collaboration with some of the biggest corporations around the world such as Cisco, AT&T Partner Exchange, Riverbed, and many others. Its core philosophies and values of honor, fearlessness, and innovation define the DNA of TenFour as it steps into the next phase of company development.
At TenFour, we believe that IT should just work. We want IT leaders and organizations to focus on innovation instead of boxes and wires. That's why we build exceptional, private domain global IT infrastructures that are simpler, have fewer defects, and cost less to operate. But, unlike transitional managed services, we don't just build and operate them, we own them and deliver IT just like power or water utilities where you pay only for what you use. It's a simpler, less complicated model for IT that positions IT leaders to redefine their resources and drive business priorities. We create a fearless and honor-driven environment that empowers our employees, customers, and partners to reimagine IT to ignite innovation in the Digital Age. TenFour. We got this.
