CLEVELAND, Aug. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Digitization is occurring at a breakneck pace inside enterprises, non-profits and government agencies. More than simply adopting new technologies or increasing bandwidth for web access, digitization represents the mass adoption and integration of smart and connected communication technologies among consumer, business and government users. As it increases its presence in the Cleveland region, Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), is working to make its global consulting expertise available to local businesses. To aid regional business leaders in understanding and managing digitization in their organizations, Logicalis US is hosting an Open House and discussion on innovation, collaboration and productivity including a presentation by visionary educator, technologist and smart city architect Lev Gonick.
"Logicalis offers a local touch with a global reach and we are excited to expand our consulting services into the Cleveland region to continue helping local organizations with the business transformation journey that new technologies are bringing. We hope to begin a discussion around digitization during this event that we can continue with regional business leaders," says Mike Montisano, Logicalis Regional Vice President. "Logicalis brings mature processes and service offerings that can help customers in the Cleveland market as they embrace digitization and develop new business strategies. We can develop an implementation plan and support them as they adopt services including managed services, cloud, data center and infrastructure services and communications and collaboration services."
Lev Gonick is co-founder and CEO of OneCommunity, the catalyst for the creation of an ultra-high speed, open and neutral fiber network in Northeast Ohio that spans 24 counties. In 2011, Government Technology awarded Lev one of its "Top 25 Doers, Dreamers & Drivers in Public-Sector Innovation." In the same year, Crain's Business Cleveland named Gonick one its "10 Difference Makers" in Northeast Ohio and Broadband Properties honored him with its Cornerstone Award for "using fiber to build an inclusive society and empower individuals." In 2010, he received recognition as "Visionary of the Year" from the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (NATOA). Gonick has also been recognized by ComputerWorld as a Premier 100 IT leader, honored by CIO magazine with a CIO 100 Award, and recognized by Northeast Ohio's Inside Business as one of its Power 100.
