It is no longer necessary to provide expensive and hard to manage computing resources at the network edge. A Virtual Desktop Infrastructure can provide employees with a fast, stable, multimedia capable “desktop” on a highly cost effective thin client device. Further benefits in terms of reduced power and cooling requirements, lower management overheads and maintenance costs can also be realised.

“Two heads are better than one”, so imagine the power of getting teams and departments in your business to work more effectively together, regardless of their physical location. Email, Instant Messaging, Voice Calls, Document Sharing, Video and TelePresence conferencing can all be integrated to provide a content-rich, real-time meeting environment for your staff. The use of Video Portals, Blogs, Wikis and Intranet sites then collate information and resources that can be accessed by staff independently, regardless of time-zone or location. We use all of these technologies ourselves and can demonstrate to our customers the commercial benefits that they achieve.

Virtualisation

Many organisations have large numbers of servers spread across multiple locations, each typically running a single application. This results in expensive duplication of resources and inefficiency in power and cooling. Virtualisation technologies deployed by us can consolidate the functions of multiple physical servers by migrating them on to virtual servers on a smaller number of physical hosts. This maximises the RoI on the physical platforms and reduces the amount of energy used to operate the systems.

Advanced Building Management and Control solutions can now be deployed across an IP platform, which means that multiple systems that have historically been managed separately can now be integrated. This integration allows simplified, unified and intelligent management, for example, the access control system identifies a particular floor is empty, so automatically turns of the lights and lowers the heating.

Service Desk

The average IT environment consists of such a broad mix of technology that it’s near impossible to have all the expertise to overcome every system issue in-house. So when your internal skills are pushed to the limit you need the peace of mind that additional help is on hand – the reassurance that with one phone call your query will be dealt with swiftly by someone who cares about getting it sorted. This is the straightforward guiding principle behind our service desk and is an invaluable complementary resource to the smooth running of any IT function.

Migration

Migrating from a working solution that supports a business process, to a new system is one of the highest risk IT projects. Migration projects normally have short outage windows, require data migration and affect multiple users or departments. We recognise the risks involved, and more importantly have a track record of designing migration project plans that mitigate these risks through extensive planning, testing, and rollback contingency preparation to help our customer’s projects run as smoothly as possible.
