AMC is a management company chartered and accredited by the Association Management Company Institute, Association Management Center (AMC), and was founded in 1974 by Art and Dagny Engle. For more than 40 years, AMC has built a reputation for caring, trust, and long-term commitment among its association partners—making us a standout among association management companies.
They have been dedicated to furthering their client-partner causes through collaboration, strategic leadership, and vision. That passion has allowed them to develop long-term relationships that create mutual success and growth for their dozens of Healthcare, Professional, and Trade Associations.
Association Management Center (AMC) was running its association systems (Personify and Financial Services) on an on-premise server hardware infrastructure. Maintaining the physical hardware environment along with the associated applications created both significant risks and constraints that prevented AMC from achieving the desired scalability, access, enablement, security, and business continuity that the rapidly growing business required. Simple backups to disks were no longer enough to meet both theirs and their client-partner portfolio requirements.
AMC developed a 2018 plan to leverage Microsoft Cloud & Office 365 collaboration capabilities to replace legacy file shares. Microsoft Azure was leveraged to run the required server workloads supporting both current and future association systems.
Despite multiple challenges, Cloud 9 was able to successfully migrate AMC to O365 and Azure on-time and under budget. The resulting solution allowed the entire AMC family to realize the benefits from this transition to Microsoft O365 and Azure.
