This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
In an increasingly connected world, the word "infrastructure" has become a buzzword in technology. Some people refer to it as the things companies rely on but never see - servers, software, data centers and the Internet. It ranges from laptops to the World Wide Web, and from offices to computer networks.
Well, a Utah company called Intellivex is helping their clients manage infrastructure to more efficiently run their operations. Through its work in designing, building and managing secure and reliable infrastructures, it assists companies to effectively compete in our rapidly changing digital market.
Nearly 90 percent of offices in America not only inhibit new ways of working, they are simply too difficult, time consuming and expensive to change. As an answer to this problem, Intellivex designs office spaces that can be re-organized in a matter of minutes, rather than days. Called e-buildings, these modern workplaces attract and motivate employees, foster teamwork and communications and project a strong company image.
Founder Max Carrigan, a former IBM engineer and sales manager, has led Intellivex to market dominance over the past 18 years by contributing to the construction of more than 70 percent of the data centers along the Wasatch Front Ð including Zions Bank's new data center in Salt Lake City.
Other Intellivex customers include American Express, Goldman Sachs, Novell, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, and Wells Fargo. In fact, Intellivex was recently awarded a contract for the new Federal Building in Oklahoma City.
Intellivex opened the doors to its own tier-one data center last November to host infrastructures for a growing number of companies around the globe. Intellivex was recently honored as one of Utah's fastest growing companies. Sales reached $11 million in 2001 and are expected to double again this year.
