Insight Enterprises has added a new global managed cloud offering, and Cloud5 Communications has launched a new managed services division to support the hospitality industry.

Insight Managed Cloud Services takes cloud management from IT teams to deliver improved performance and user experiences for Microsoft Azure environments, with capabilities to extend to a multicloud approach including Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

Insight technical support centers are positioned around the world to provide access to engineers for 24/7 monitoring, data and endpoint protection and issues resolution.

Further, our ability as a solutions integrator to address every aspect of digital transformation – from modernizing infrastructure to integrating game changers like generative AI that create more compelling work experiences – provides the strategic partner to help them realize the most ambitious goals for their business.”
