Modernize IT Infrastructure & Improve Organizational Efficiency

NS1 provides the modern foundational infrastructure that today's complex, distributed application delivery environments require.

Inflexible, legacy infrastructure and tools require an increasing percentage of budget and maintenance hours to meet application delivery requirements, slow down deployments, and put you at risk for outages or downtime.

Our Increasingly Digital-First World Requires Modern IT Infrastructure

Delivering today’s applications using yesterday’s infrastructure and tools limits your team’s ability to innovate and deploy at a global scale. With a modern foundation built for a complex, distributed environment, your team unlocks spend and headcount for higher-value initiatives, improves application performance, and deploys innovative products faster - improving business metrics with the same IT spend.

IT Modernization

Business Impact

Manual processes result in downtime, outages, and time spent maintaining rather than innovating. Necessary improvements take longer to deploy, slowing product development overall.

Employee Impact

Your IT team is viewed as a roadblock, rather than an enabler, and spends more time putting out fires than innovating. Attracting and retaining top talent is an uphill battle without a modern and appealing technology stack to work on.

Why IT Modernization Should Be an Urgent Priority

  • 80% of companies find it challenging to meet current application delivery requirements with existing infrastructure.
  • According to IDG research, some of the top challenges companies cite are linked to aging networks, including: legacy infrastructure (35%), organizational inflexibility (33%), and technical and operational debt (31%).
  • The pandemic accelerated the digitization of customer, supply-chain, and internal operations by 3-4 years, according to a recent McKinsey report.

Digital Transformation Initiatives Accelerate

The pandemic created new urgency around modernization initiatives, and a search for tools that can help.
