Virtualization

Virtual storage and virtual desktops are changing the way organizations provide IT in a more secure, standardized, compliant and cost effective manner.  Organizations are solving business requirements like micro-segmentation, automation, IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and SaaS (Software as a Service) by a deeper commitment into the virtualization space in their environments.  Let us help bring these concepts to reality in your organization!

…including Storage, Telecom, and Application Rationalization
IT leaders are getting these types of questions asked of them every day by the business. Let us help you answer these questions by scheduling conversations with the right people, ask the right questions, then produce an executive consumable presentation along with the technical details you and the business need to make easy change decisions.

Data Center Consolidation & Migration

Our team can help bring this potentially very positive operating expenses solution to light for your organization by first defining it, then asking the right people, the right questions to make sure the solution is all encompassing right out of the gate.  We can help pull together the right information to help you develop your disaster recovery plan if you don’t have one.

3 – 5 year Strategic IT Business Planning

Business leaders and investors alike are asking IT leaders for their “vision”, i.e., “how much money are you going to need extra in the next 3 – 5 years”.  How are technologies like “cloud” and “virtualization” evolving and how will your company take advantage of these changes? Our team can help you develop that documentation in an executive consumable format.
