Background. Network technology represents the critical communication link between the data center which houses the business applications and the end-user’s who require the information to complete their job functions. Availability, reliability, speed and security are critical network requirements. Typically, IT management and the business take the reliability of the network for granted, until there is an issue. Typically, network resources are focused on daily operations, with little time to optimize the efficiency and cost of operation. Many times the approach with the network is, “if it isn’t broke don’t change”. However, the network often represents an untapped opportunity for organizations to reduce costs and improve service.

Where do we start? We begin with a review of your current network environment. Once we understand the current state, the business demands, and your dependencies, we move to analyze your current and future requirements, network performance and finally your internal support systems.
The Benefits The solution provides an understanding and optimization of the technical, business and financial (capital and operating costs) impacts of the network to the business and daily employee functions.
