Welcome to 9op.

Welcome to 9op IT Solutions!  We are here to help your organization achieve and support business objectives through effective IT solutions.  Our ambition is to earn a place as your trusted advisor to improve your IT operations in a way that helps improve your business and control costs. 

What We Do

9op is a consulting organization focused on aligning and improving IT operations to meet the business objectives of organizations.  9op refers to "Operational 9's" which simply means achieving the highest levels of performance for the IT infrastructure, often measured by how well it meets business objectives, reliability, security, compliance, operations, return on investment, and management.

Often IT organizations evolve to be focused on adding and supporting point solutions without clear and measurable business objectives.  This is fostered by value added resellers that represent products first and foremost, so their job is to justify why you need their product, rather than letting the business objectives and requirements drive the need.  For each product added, there is typically a cost of ownership added to support each solution, plus annual fees to maintain it.  Often the result is new focus on another technology to support without even addressing the real business need.

9op is different, we focus first on the business objectives first.  Products and solutions are often needed, but they should be planned and procured to meet the objectives first, taking into account how they meet the goals of the organization and how they effect ROI.  9op doesn't sell products directly so we can be objective and put your interests first.  With 20+ years of reseller experience, we know how to help you design the right solution, evaluate and recommend solutions, and help procure products at the best prices.

9op offers a wide variety of specialized services, ranging from new projects to improving or supporting existing solutions.  We have the knowledge and skills to not only help implement but enable our organization to function more effectively.
