The iomart Group is one of the UK’s leading providers of managed hosting and cloud computing services.
It has five data centres across the UK, backed by expert technical teams who create and manage web services for anything from start-up businesses to large corporations. Established in 1998, iomart’s growth has mirrored the development of the internet. It has weathered the ups and downs of the dot com boom and bust to become a leading provider of mission-critical services to businesses in the UK and beyond.
How IT is used within the company:
IT is crucial to iomart’s business, both from a delivery and end-user point of view. Within the company IT is used for internal email, Customer Relations Management, for managing iPhones and iPads that staff use on the move and for monitoring and security purposes. iomart recognised the development of what’s called ‘the cloud’ very early on and adapted the business services it offers to be delivered via the internet to help organisations cut costs and make efficiencies – one of the first companies to do so.
Essentially iomart becomes an extension of a company’s IT department.
Careers at iomart:
iomart offers all the sales, financial, marketing, and management roles you would expect in a large organisation. However because of the nature of its business, iomart also has more specialist positions in the field of software development and technical engineering.
