IDEX is a diversified specialty manufacturing company that sells highly engineered products to customers in a variety of markets worldwide, including fluidics systems and components, optics and photonics, and fire and safety products such as the Jaws of Life® family of rescue and recovery tools.
"We are very pleased with the results achieved by Secure-24 and GSI, as they were able to successfully migrate our JD Edwards and business intelligence systems to Secure-24's private enterprise cloud under budget and ahead of schedule with minimal disruption to our business," said Andy Kiss, vice president, Technical Services, IDEX.
Secure-24 is a leading provider of managed IT operations, application hosting and cloud services; GSI is a full-service JD Edwards consulting and managed services organization. Secure-24 currently hosts IDEX's multi-instance, multi-version JD Edwards environments that support over 65 percent of IDEX's revenue. With more than a decade of experience operating their business with a managed service provider, IDEX elected to move all of its JD Edwards infrastructure and services to Secure-24 and GSI. Working in partnership, IDEX, Secure-24 and GSI built and executed a detailed transition and communication plan, deliberately structured to support operational availability needs and corporate compliance requirements.
"Migrating to Secure-24's Enterprise Private Cloud enables IDEX to operate in a high performance, highly scalable environment with geographically diverse disaster recovery capabilities. The transition went smoothly, and the IDEX team was extremely knowledgeable about their infrastructure making the process a success," said Sean Donaldson, CTO, Secure-24. "We look forward to our continued partnership with IDEX by delivering and maintaining world-class infrastructure and JD Edwards expertise."
GSI provides global 24/7 managed services for IDEX including CNC, proactive monitoring, upgrades, database refreshes and standard managed service operations such as troubleshooting, package builds and queue maintenance.

"The three teams came together to deliver as promised, with a cost/benefit model that made sense for IDEX," said Jim MacLennan, SVP & chief information officer, IDEX.
