Our Solutions Architect Team will evaluate your existing topology and / configurations, and provide you with a current assessment of your environment.  This document will identify pros, cons, and areas for improvement.  The deliverable will be an “as-built” or assessment document.  You will have a road map that enables our staff or your own staff to understand the current situation and next phase recommendations.

Deply and Integration

Most environments are not able to afford downtime.  Our Senior Engineer Team will review the design document; and further identify critical applications.  This Team will provide insight into current technology trends, re-assess the current infrastructure, identify business goals, and create the change management steps to minimize or avoid down-time.  The deliverable will be a list of steps for implementation.  During this phase, our Team will work with you to simulate the effort and / or provide proof of concept.
