To stay ahead of the curve, Laffer Associates, founded by supply-side economist Arthur Laffer—world famous for the Laffer Curve—turned to Pointivity for a simple and secure Microsoft-based solution to reduce data risk and downtime.
Issue: As world-class thought leaders in the field of economic research and analysis, Laffer Associates faced high levels of data, increasingly complex IT requirements, and the never-ending demands of growth, regulatory compliance, and taxing application issues. They wanted to focus on protecting their core business and leverage the cloud to create a failsafe for their data, as even a minor outage would be a major setback.
Solution: Pointivity, who has consulted and managed Laffer Associates for over ten years, implemented Microsoft Azure as a solution to leverage offsite backups and business continuity. Affordable and easily supported by a single managed dashboard. Laffer Associates is now on a secondary platform without the expense of secondary infrastructure.
