We’ve partnered with Intel for some time to help provide strategy and support for our Eagan, Minn.-based data centers. These data centers support Westlaw and many of the online services from across Thomson Reuters. Through this partnership, we were able to expand our technology infrastructure to support further business growth. Since our customer usage is growing rapidly, it’s imperative that we expand our technology capabilities to support increased demand. We also have to control cost to ensure we remain profitable.
We recently participated in a case study with Intel, in which our own Christopher Crowhurst explores the value that Intel has provided to our business. Server virtualization, increased density in processing and memory – none of it is a trivial matter. It’s our responsibility to create valuable products and services and to keep the infrastructure solid, so Intel’s assistance as a vendor is very beneficial to us.
It reminds me of the relationship we have with our customers. We build, maintain and enhance products like Westlaw and its content with the main goal of delivering value to our customers so they can do their job well. It’s the combination of people and technology that makes our information “intelligent,” and this helps our customers succeed.
Thomson Reuters, like Intel, is more than a vendor to customers. We help customers get their jobs done.
