The digitization of our society is a fact. Companies and governments around the world are on the eve or in the middle of the transformation to a 'digital business'. Organizations closing their eyes on this, will be left empty-handed. The competitive field is complex, the urge for innovation is huge. Cost control and agility are on the board's agenda in varying order – alongside topics such as (managed) 'Security' or 'Big Data'. In any case, the quality of IT is essential for almost every organization. Reduced availability is a direct threat, future-proofing a must.


That's how we see it at Avit, and as an innovative managed service provider and network integrator we go along with this transformation without any hesitation. We are part of it, we are in the middle of it, in fact: We regularly lead the way. Because we are convinced of the opportunities that a digital business and a digital society offer. And because we believe that you should seize such opportunities with both hands.
