IT Infrastructure Solution


Manage Your Infrastructure Cost Effectively
        Infrastructure management, including technology deployment, is a huge drain on IT resources. According to Gartner Group, an average of 78% of an IT budget is spent just managing existing systems and software infrastructures. Unfortunately, IT is often resource-constrained and barely able to manage their current environments, much less focus on their company's core competencies.

        IT needs help making the right purchasing decisions for both immediate needs and long-term goals. They also need solutions that adapt to their specific infrastructure and business needs, provide scalability, and include specialized skills sets and knowledge.

Turn-Key Solutions to Manage Your Mail and Messaging Technologies
        Email and messaging have become mission-critical for today’s businesses. Complex projects across multiple teams, the rising number of branch offices and an increasingly mobile workforce all require a flexible, reliable, and cost-effective way for end users to communicate and collaborate anytime and anywhere.

        Exactly how important is email and messaging? A recent survey by research firm Dynamic Markets found that 68 percent of users become upset after 30 minutes without email access. Another recent survey from the Meta Group found that a majority of organizations find email more important than phone.

        In fact, email and messaging systems are used by almost every employee on an ongoing basis throughout the day. Email and messaging have also become important repositories of business information, often serving as a substitute for a file system or document-management system. When these communications systems go down, business slows to a crawl — and then stops.

        Companies of all sizes need a “bullet-proof” communications infrastructure.
