Inspired by the popular ELI5 format from Reddit we explain each of the Hestio offerings as simply as possible.

ELI5 (Explain Like I'm 5) is a term used in Reddit and other online communities to request an explanation of a topic or concept in a simplified, easy-to-understand manner.

The Hestio Portfolio

Our portfolio reflects the areas of demand for businesses that are solving modern challenges, such as access to technology, expertise, and talent.

Sometimes you need the help of modern tools and equipment to accelerate the processSometimes you just need an experienced hand who understands what needs to be doneSometimes you just need additional qualified and experienced staff for the tasks you already have.

On the basis that it's very unlikely a 5 year old will be interested in Hestio's offerings, let's bring it back to something more relatable for potential customers.

If we look at some of the major challenges to business today it's easy to see where we can add value;

  1. Cybersecurity

    With cyber attacks becoming more frequent and sophisticated, businesses face a range of potential consequences, including loss of data, financial loss, and reputational damage. According to a report by Cybersecurity Ventures, the cost of cybercrime is projected to reach $10.5 trillion annually by 2025. Just pick up any newspaper on any given day of the week and you will find reports of organizational compromise.

  2. Supply Chain Disruptions

    Cyber attacks on supply chain partners can compromise the security and integrity of the supply chain, leading to disruptions and delays.

  3. Compliance

    Compliance challenges are a major concern for businesses today, as regulations and standards are constantly evolving, becoming more complex, and impacting a wide range of industries. Non-compliance can result in significant financial penalties and legal consequences.

  4. Talent Shortage

    Companies are facing challenges in attracting and retaining skilled talent, which can affect their ability to innovate and stay competitive. The competition for skilled talent is fierce, and organizations need to be able to attract and retain top talent to remain competitive.

At Hestio, we focus on demonstrating value by helping to solve those challenges by bringing our technology (worX), our talent (Projects) and our experience (fleXpertise) into play;

IaC practices can help organizations to respond to disruptions quickly and efficiently by automating processes, using analytics to identify potential risks, and implementing contingency plans.

  3. Compliance

    Automatically enforcing policies, tracking changes to infrastructure and configurations, and providing auditable logs and reports.
