onepoint’s “IT as a Utility” solution was started in 2016 as a result of a simple observation: people and organizations have transformed how they live and work. All expect freedom of choice in apps & devices, processes, infra & connectivity, but old school IT has not adapted to this new agile reality, being rigid, complex, high-risk and unpredictable. This mismatch led the onepoint group to start “IT as a Utility.” Chris Hazewinkel and a team of 75 IT experts, formerly known as Qwise – acquired by the onepoint group -, created the “IT as a Utility” vision and developed onepoint’s Orchestration Portal to support it.
