Consulting

CONSULTING

We thrive on IT challenges – and look forward to helping you resolve yours. Hence, our consulting process focuses on helping you identify and develop your untapped potential. Our aim here is to take innovation forward and deliver solutions designed and engineered to last. And to accomplish that, we bring our entire project expertise to bear.

/ IT assessment process: Four steps to clarity

01INITIAL TALK

In an initial meeting with you, we roughly map out your IT infrastructure. We ask about the systems you’re running and how old they are, as well as your challenges and objectives going forward.

02 INVENTORY


We pay you an on-site visit to document your current infrastructure, including all your hardware and software. This gives us the complete and comprehensive picture of your IT environment we need for our subsequent analysis.

03 ANALYSIS


We take a detailed look at your entire IT infrastructure. Then, we carry out a risk analysis to assess the status of your IT security and identify any critical weaknesses or flaws; we also review all the external IT services you may be using. If required, we can additionally conduct tailored market analysis and supply proofs of concept to make sure you have a thorough foundation on which to base your choices and decisions.

04 PLAN

Our team of experts combines all this analysis and prepares an IT plan tailored to your needs. We then meet with you to discuss potential solutions – spanning hardware, software, IT services and support – depending on the scope of your requirements. Our focus here is both on optimizing your IT infrastructure and on ensuring it’s sufficiently robust and fit for the future.

/ The inside track

If there are areas of IT you’d like to know more about but find the wealth of information available overwhelming, no problem: We work closely with major vendors whose products we know inside out. We can interface on your behalf, pick the right vendor events to attend, and come along with you to help pool the information you need. If you like, we can even arrange and accompany you on a visit to a vendor’s innovation lab, to help you gain a better idea of their products in action.

Software

SOFTWARE

Software, like hardware, is fundamental to any IT infrastructure. When it comes to choosing software, we like to make sure it will integrate seamlessly with your existing systems. That way it will win maximum user acceptance as well as deliver the intended productivity gains.

/ Operating systems

As the interface between system hardware and application software, operating systems play an essential role in server operations. We advise clients on which Windows, Unix and Linux system to choose, and configure these systems for them. With critical infrastructure or high performance and availability requirements, we focus primarily on Unix and Linux.

/ Virtualization

Virtualization plays a major role in businesses’ digital transformation. We help you to make the most of virtual systems and the benefits they afford in terms of agile, flexible and scalable IT infrastructure, low investment and low operating costs. When it comes to server virtualization, we work with products from VMware, Microsoft, Red Hat and Oracle. And we can supply the right storage virtualization solutions to match.

/ Networks & Security

Software today is at the front and center of enterprise security; it’s where multiple separate aspects of security converge. Thus, it’s essential to ensure that not just networks and data centers, but endpoints like employee PCs, laptops, tablet devices and smartphones, too, are protected against attack. We can guide you through the maze of security software solutions and design a security strategy that fits.

/ High availability

When it comes to critical IT infrastructure, high availability is essential. Seamless system monitoring, along with hardware redundancy, ensures outage-free operation. We’ve often implemented solutions of this kind for customers, including high-availability, high-performance and load-balancing clusters.

/ Data management

For companies today, sound data management practices and policies are essential if they are to parlay their data into business success. We can design data management strategies for you that not only address factors like life cycle, quality and a single source of truth, but establish clearly defined roles and responsibilities as well. We can also supply easy archiving solutions to match.

/ Backup & Recovery

Critical data loss is a constant risk for businesses. Besides costly business outages, losing data can lead to loss of revenue and even regulatory fines. When designing a comprehensive overall B&R strategy, we not only establish SLAs, we address all the crucial aspects involved, including monitoring, compliance requirements and cost. That way we can create a technically and legally compliant solution that’s tailored carefully to your needs and requirements.

/ Management & Automation

IT infrastructures are evolving constantly. With large-scale server and storage infrastructures particularly, management and automation have become essential means of minimizing time, cost and resource requirements. It’s only through standardization, management and automation that data centers are able to provision resources quickly and meet agreed service levels. We can help you find the optimum solutions to fit your needs.

/ Monitoring

With continuous monitoring, you gain visibility and greater control across all the systems, applications and devices in your infrastructure. We can advise you on the right choice of monitoring software and help ensure that your systems keep running smoothly.
