From an IT Infrastructure that Once Hindered Productivity to One that is Now an Asset

MyTek Partners with MIKID to Support Internal IT

MIKID (MIKID.ORG) is an Arizona non-profit whose goal is to improve the behavioral health and wellness of children and youth through a family-centered approach. With seven locations across the state and a team of 150 plus, Kristian Nordhaugen, IT Administrator, oversees all aspects of MIKID’s technology. Yet, as an IT team of one, he sought a trusted IT partner to
provide support and additional resources.

The Challenge

When Kristian joined MIKID, he saw an opportunity to collaborate with MyTek in the following ways to address critical issues that were causing downtime and to provide ongoing IT support:
• Updating outdated technology company-wide
• Managing and monitoring potential malware and virus threats
• Connectivity and networking functionality issues across locations
• Loss of productivity due to technology issues
• Security issues around protecting patient data

The Solution

MyTek conducted a thorough analysis of MIKID’s technology infrastructure to:
• Identify root causes of systemic problems
• Analyze the existing technology infrastructure
• Isolate sources of malware
• Address security concerns
• Thoroughly understand MIKID’s technology needs to make relevant
MyTek upgraded MIKID’s servers and managed switches and access points, transitioned them to a cloud-based system to include O365 and upgraded firewalls to better support the needs of the system’s infrastructure and protect confidential client data.

The Benefit

“The work we did helped us accomplish our goal of having an IT infrastructure that meant less time dealing with IT issues and more time for our staff to focus on the children and families we serve,” shared Kristian. “Our technology now helps, versus hinders us.” Kristian noted the following strategic benefits from their partnership with MyTek:
• Having a relationship-centered IT partner, where MyTek knows us and our business.
• Freeing-up precious time to focus on daily operations and training staff on using the
new O365 tools for increased collaboration, productivity and efficiency.
