Auxilion invests €800,000 and creates 15 jobs in new cloud-based project support service
02 June 2015
Auxilion, the Irish-owned cloud transformation and support company, has invested €800,000 in a new project support service. It has already created 15 jobs and is currently recruiting in response to growing demand. Auxilion www.auxilion.com is offering the service in Ireland and overseas.
“As a result of the economic recovery, project managers are under pressure as organisations gear up to implement projects that had previously been shelved,” said Paul Schmitz, chief sales officer, Auxilion.
“Our service gives project managers back 40 per cent of their time by delivering a lot of the generic tasks associated with overall project delivery such as administration and project support. This frees them up to focus on key elements such as stakeholder management, budget control or managing a wider portfolio of projects at the one time.”
Research published last year by Lero, the Irish Software Research Centre, found that many Irish companies and public sector organisations are struggling to deliver projects effectively, especially in multi-project environments.
Lero researcher Dr Orla O’Dwyer, of NUI Galway, said that between 40 and 60 per cent of IT programs fail to meet budget, deadlines and expectations and are often underutilised when implemented. She estimated that Ireland is wasting more than €1 billion annually on ICT projects.
The new service provides project management people, processes and technology on demand. The service is available remotely to keep costs down and is hosted on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform which facilitates global service delivery.
“Our philosophy is that much of IT support is already provided remotely so why not a cost-effective remote support service for project delivery?” said Schmitz.
Auxilion is already providing project support services to a number of Irish organisations including Coillte and across multinational service providers such as HP and BT through its parent company, IT Alliance Group.
Auxilion, which employs 50 people, was set up in 2012 to address the rapidly growing global cloud computing services market. It provides cloud transformation and 24×7 support services around the globe with physical premises in Dublin and Sheffield, England.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2015/06/02/cloud-based-project-support-service/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/cloud11.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/cloud11-300x300.jpgNewscloud,Dublin,jobs,software
