International Integrated Solutions: Enabling Enterprises to Stay Current on Cloud and Big Data Innovations
John Iacone, CEO & FounderRapid innovations in Technology and Solutions such as Cloud and Big Data are driving the enterprise to understand their impact on business. IT departments are struggling to stay relevant to their organizations by having to provide more agility and flexibility by keeping up the pace with innovations in their respective industries to stay competitive. With an aim to address these challenges, International Integrated Solution (IIS) provides consulting, IT solutions, and integration at the highest levels of partner designation from many vendors, including HPE Platinum Partner status. “The company leverages its HP infrastructure expertise and project management knowledge to assist businesses and their IT departments in solving problems with technology. For example we are adeptly skilled at working with clients to analyse their data and identify the (BEV), best execution venue for their cloud workloads, whether it be a public, private or a hybrid cloud environment” says John Iacone, CEO and Founder, IIS.
HP offers many new technologies including Helion, Eucalyptus and CSA, Management software that provides a robust platform to build out Hybrid Cloud environments. IIS brings these solutions to clients helping them manage workloads that reside in a multi-vendor public, private or hybrid cloud environment; putting control back in the hands of the IT team.
With an industry presence of more than two decades, IIS understands customer’s business data requirements and provides assistance from its own Chief Data Scientist and Digital Data Marketing experts to assist customers in data mining and business analytics that aid in the growth of their business. Also, IIS harnesses the power of HP Vertica and Hadoop to help clients get relevant and real-time data. This allows the clients to leverage data more quickly to enable their business to create and innovate better. “Our partnership with HP and alignment with the HP Haven Big Data Strategy is instrumental to our success in the big data market,” says Iacone.
“HP World Class Server, Storage and Network infrastructure allows us to build out total solutions all from a single vendor with total support throughout the lifecycle of the application and environment,” says Iacone.

IIS differentiates itself with its best-of-the-breed robust delivery foundation, coupled with experienced account management, and robust system that supports customer’s project goals from start to finish. “Our customers leverage the resources of our test and integration lab to design, stage equipment, integrated and QA their solutions prior to shipment.” This process increases their time to value,” says Iacone.
In one instance, a large online retailer with physical infrastructure was facing issues with its low levels of redundancy, limited maintenance windows, and high operations and maintenance costs. Taking hold of the situation, IIS virtualized the customer’s entire infrastructure, including Windows servers and desktops. As a result, the client achieved a physical-to-virtual consolidation ratio of 20:1; hardware cost reductions of 9:1; and a Capex/Opex reduction of 92 percent along with ROI in just over one year.
Moving forward, the company plans to double-down in the area of security for 2016. “Also by implementing one of our core strategies of constant and never ending improvement (CANI), we are better able and equipped to learn and deploy new technologies faster and better than our customers who need to focus more on their day to day operations,” Iacone concludes.
