Customer Success: Worthington Industries

As Worthington became active in acquiring new companies, the IT management team faced the challenge of incorporating both human and technological resources – including desktops, security, server infrastructure, hosting, and networks – into the Worthington infrastructure. Facing old and at times outdated or redundant technologies, the new IT team decided it was time for a complete IT strategy refresh. The team at Worthington Industries needed to validate their plans and assess their readiness to move to advanced technologies. They used RISC Networks to help them analyze their environment so they would have a baseline to work from.

How RISC Networks Helped

By conducting an engagement with RISC Networks, Worthington’s IT team were able to receive in-depth, easy to understand reports that provided performance and status information on their complete infrastructure. The benchmarking capability within the RISC Networks product allowed them to gain a baseline against other organizations their size, which helped prove to their management team how they were performing and it verified other companies were facing the same challenges. RISC Networks tool presented prioritized, actionable solutions to remediate the issues they found.

Working with RISC Networks was a critical first step to a new IT management team to become thoroughly familiarized with all of our technology, allow us to more efficiently use existing resources, validate our refresh strategies and confirm our security position – all top priorities.
