Where are you in your virtualization execution? Is private or public cloud right for you? Do you understand your data growth and how to leverage data to improve your business? Our IT assessment services can provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions on your cloud strategy, data growth and analytics, social media approach, and much more.
Our IT infrastructure assessment goal is to reveal valuable information to aid in setting strategies and leveraging technologies to meet your customer demands, improve service levels, and ultimately increase your organization’s profitability.
Many of our customers need to develop a strategy to implement and support the IT Infrastructure. Many times, they just need to know what they have, where is it in the technology lifecycle, and if they are positioned correctly for future growth.
Today, IT departments are challenged to develop and implement a reliable, efficient IT Infrastructure. This requires time to plan, strategize, and be proactive in their support. Is your IT Infrastructure ready to take on the changes in business? Are you following best practices? Are you positioned to take advantage of evolving technology and changes in work dynamics? The Zunesis IT Infrastructure Assessment will assess your current IT infrastructure and deliver a report detailing observations regarding hardware, software, and the business processes impacted by your IT environment. Leveraging information about current state IT and considering future business plans, an IT strategy will be developed that not only addresses short-term issues but also builds the framework for a long-term roadmap for supporting your ever-evolving IT infrastructure.
One issue that impacts every IT department is the explosive growth of data. Data streams into a business from multiple sources and includes office documents, emails, digital media (including security camera and bodycam), and scanned documents to name a few. Businesses are often required to maintain this data for long periods of time. The combination of rapid growth, the requirement to keep data indefinitely, and the increasing importance of data to the viability of a business is leading our clients to assess their data management practices.
The Zunesis Data Management IT Assessment Service can be used to focus separately on Production Data, Archive Data, Backup/Recovery, or it can encompass all three. Is data being stored in line with its value to the business? Is the protection scheme appropriate to meet RPO/RTO? Will the current infrastructure be able to meet demands for future performance and growth?
The goal of this IT assessment service is to help our customers develop a strategy to implement data management processes that will accommodate data growth and provide data availability, security, and protection of business-critical information.
By providing a snapshot of where your organization currently stands, and by highlighting areas in which you can strengthen your performance, the Social Listening IT Assessment can also help you progress towards more effective Social Media communications.
The Social Listening IT Assessment Service provided by Zunesis is a critical exercise to understanding your organization’s maturity of using Social Media and/or opportunity of leveraging Social Media to create a strategic, competitive advantage. Assessment deliverables will include an in-depth report and presentation that provides you with industry, competitor, and brand performance in the Social Space. For those that have already incorporated some form of Social Media, the listening assessment is a service that will help you evaluate your effectiveness of using Social Media. The report will identify what’s working well, what’s not, and what might work better with some adjustments. For those that are new to Social Media Listening, the assessment will help your brand continuously improve its Digital Marketing strategies, content creation, and overall Social Media performance.
Many of our customers have virtualized over the last few years. However, as with most initiatives, the virtualization process is either incomplete, aged, or does not follow changes in best practices.
Today, many companies are using virtualization and have been for many years. Are you using virtualization effectively and efficiently? Are there additional servers, applications, or clients that can and should be virtualized? Are your business-critical applications a candidate for virtualization? Whether you are looking at Server virtualization or client virtualization, our Virtualization IT Assessment Service and Operational Analysis can provide you with the information needed to improve your virtual environment or fast track your IT project.
Most companies do not check their wireless network regularly. Often, wireless access points will be configured, deployed, and forgotten until a user enters a support ticket. Wireless systems can also be installed incorrectly from the beginning, without proper evaluation of the environment. The typical “evaluation” we see when purchasing a new wireless solution is a Predictive Site Survey, where a network engineer will import floor plans into a tool and draw walls on the map to give them an idea of what their coverage area will look like when the solution is deployed. These predictive surveys do a great job at telling you where to place the AP’s, but they lack the real-world data to create the best channel plan to minimize interference with your building neighbors (for example). There are many variables in a wireless deployment; even something as small as a microwave oven can cause interference when in use.
The Zunesis Wireless Site Survey aims to give network engineers the real-world data they need to ensure a healthy and robust wireless network with minimal RF interference. Whether you are looking to upgrade your existing solution or validate a recent installation, a professional site survey will give your engineers the data they need to minimize the support calls.
