Services

We wouldn’t even think of delivering solutions to you without recommending the services that can attach. Because as powerful as those solutions are, they need care and feeding and some pretty expert oversight.

So in addition to services that cover Assessment, Data Center Optimization, Virtualization, Storage, Cloud, and Professional Methodology, we offer Digging deeper, we offer Blade and Proliant services, Management and Migration services, Networking Solutions, and a wide array of levels underneath all of those.

And now, with the HP ServiceOne program (and our Elite level designation) we’re able to sell and deliver HP services from across the entire range of technology service offerings, a wide-open portfolio ranging from desktop deployment to hybrid cloud, from basic maintenance to strategic consulting - services that offer a level of support commensurate with the complexity and mobility of today’s IT environment. With HP Care Pack Services that support the entire HP commercial portfolio, all Professional Services, and HP Contractual Services, it’s our most powerful services toolbox ever.

Data Center Optimization

A Data Center means exactly that. It’s the center of your operations. As such, any level below optimal is hurting performance, capabilities, ROI, and more.

IIS installs and delivers Data Center Solutions that can add flexibility across your infrastructure, simplify management, lower cost of ownership, and protect investments.

We begin by assessing these areas:

  • IT operations (provisioning, data mobility, application rollout and support)
  • Network overview (LAN and WAN design and costs)
  • Backup design and operation (Backup and recovery times, retention, archiving)
  • Storage network infrastructure
  • Disaster recovery capabilities (including application recovery)

Our assessment results determine where you can make improvements to simplify operations, provide better means of protection and recovery for critical applications, and where costs and service levels can be improved.

Assessment

If your enterprise is like most, you're probably spending 70% or more of your IT budget on ongoing operations and maintenance. This leaves only 30% for innovation and investment back into the business.

Leading industry analyst firm Forrester suggests companies shift to spending 60 percent or less of the IT budget on maintenance and 40 percent or more on innovation. This will achieve better alignment between IT spend and business needs. Yet, most enterprises are not sure where to begin.

IIS can help you with a wide range of transformation assessments. Together with HP, our experts provide rapid-turn consulting services as a great first step as you look to jump-start or re-start your infrastructure and applications modernization efforts.

Depending on both your immediate and long-term needs, we can execute Virtualization assessments, Security and Risk assessments, Infrastructure Modernization assessments, Environmental assessments, and more.

Our toolsets and software run in the background of your system and can analyze an endless number of operational conditions. We analyze the results quantitively, and just as importantly, qualitatively, to make powerful and transformational recommendations from there. Assessment is a science, but there’s also elements of art - we make part of our mission to always bring creativity and inspiration to assessment.
