You are:

A CTO of an established firm interested in aligning your IT team with business partners and removing disruptive, non-alpha generating tasks from the equation.

A business manager charged with reducing your commoditized IT to minimize operational expenses.

A portfolio manager who struck out to start a new firm. You have your name; you have your strategy. You need an office, and you need to set up your infrastructure, but you should be focusing on raising capital and selecting your counterparties.

Agio, our name, has come to stand for so much more than just

technology. Our name means service, commitment, drive, perseverance, determination and excellence. Consistently we find our clients and partners interested not only in our technology but also in our culture and our philosophy around service.

We coined the phrase, “The Art of Service” to remind us service is an art as well as a science. We use a deliberate process of providing strong fundamentals and ask our employees to show up every day willing to bring themselves and their craft to their work.

In the same way, we asked lauded New York street artist Paul Richard to apply his unique craft to the most fundamental graphic element of our brand: our “Swirly.” We place his artistic interpretation of our Swirly prominently in our offices and in our materials as a constant reminder to our clients and to ourselves of our commitment to “The Art of Service”.

The above is one of three commissioned artworks created by lauded New York street artist Paul Richard. The original pieces hang in our New York, Oklahoma and North Carolina offices.

For us, our commitment to being the best means a continual investment in our service delivery. To that end, we developed a proprietary system called Enterprise Service Platform (ESP) to ensure Agio engineers focus on your most critical issues and consistently deliver a superior end-user experience across all Agio services. The enhanced insight and transparency of ESP offer you access to a real-time view of all your open cases. You see what we see—an “inside” view of all your open tickets—so there is never a doubt as to exactly what is happening in your environment at any given moment.

ESP automatically prioritizes open tickets based on select inputs you’ve identified, utilizing a scriptable heuristic algorithm, advanced data mining techniques and predictive analytics. As we constantly evaluate and monitor the priorities of your specific environment, we build and retain institutional knowledge allowing us to service you more effectively every day.

Agio’s Remote Monitoring & Management provides coverage of your:

NETWORK SERVERS DATABASES STORAGE BACKUP APPLICATIONS

We developed Agio Monitoring Service (AMS), a customized monitoring application designed specifically for the alternative investment

industry, to integrate security, performance, availability and monitoring in a single application (SIEM). With AMS, we monitor devices, users and applications across the entire IT infrastructure—on premise, in the cloud or a hybrid model—through a single pane of glass. By combining security, performance and availability with monitoring via powerful real-time analytics, AMS identifies security incidents and operation-impacting problems more rapidly, keeping your business running with minimal disruptions.

With our 24x7x365 Management Services, we manage your environment to actively reduce downtime through detection and remediation. From data collection, trending and capacity planning to deploying changes to servers, troubleshooting and monitoring performance, Agio ensures your environment is in a healthy state and stays that way. Furthermore, our infrastructure management platform can be accessed by our service experts from anywhere, at any time, so there is never a single point of failure in terms of our systems or people. As an Agio client, you too have access to the AMS platform, offering a transparent view into what’s happening in your environment at all times.

VIRTUAL INFRASTRUCTURE

Colocation: Our Colocation service saves you money and avoids outages by supplying a secure environment with the added flexibility of having complete control over your own servers and software. Plus, with managed colocation, Agio manages and maintains your servers, providing you with a dependable, efficient environment without having to retain your own dedicated IT staff.
