Watch how Eide Bailly helped Extra Space Storage execute a data strategy built for growth.

The Challenge

In a short time, Extra Space Storage saw explosive growth in the number of data sources available to them.

The growth in new data sources quickly outpaced the available resources to extract value from the data.

The Solution

Eide Bailly helped Extra Space Storage unlock growth with Microsoft Azure.

After performing a data assessment with Extra Space Storage, the Eide Bailly team created a data strategy focused on agility and scalability for future growth. Together we determined Azure’s cloud platform was the right fit for Extra Space Storage and got to work creating the infrastructure.


Our team members worked in tandem with Extra Space Storage to upskill their staff for the new platform. “Eide Bailly feels like part of our company,” says Karla Mills, Director of the Data Management Team. “They are so ingrained with us and work really well with us. They don’t feel like a consulting firm. I feel like they really believe in the success of our product and our projects, and they take as much ownership as we do. They want us to succeed. They’re in it with us.”

The Results

Fast, efficient, and reliable data across the organization.

Extra Space Storage has a cloud data solution that enables them to unlock the value from an expansive array of internal and external data sources, giving them real-time insight to support data-driven decision making.
