All businesses are looking to reduce costs and the IT budget is coming under scrutiny as never before. The cost of energy is a significant component of IT operating costs. Newer PCs and Servers are more energy efficient than their predecessors and technologies such as virtualisation can reduce the need for physical machines. There has never been a better time to review your IT infrastructure to minimise ongoing costs.
We will conduct an IT operations audit and produce a tailored action plan showing how you can reduce your ongoing costs by focusing on these key areas:
The vast majority of servers are underused for most if not all of their working lives. Virtualisation allows you to consolidate your servers into fewer physical machines with related savings in power usage, maintenance and management. We will assess your infrastructure to see if you can benefit from virtualisation and provide the technology and expertise to make this happen.
You may have equipment that is nearing the end of its useful life. It is likely that the manufacturer has introduced more reliable kit that uses less power and provides a better service, with less maintenance expense and downtime. We will assess your equipment to see if savings can be made and supply replacements at the best possible prices.
Maintenance and Support Agreements
If your equipment was bought at different times, it is possible that you could be paying a premium for separate support agreements. If appropriate we will devise a consolidated support agreement delivered by our service desk that will provide real savings.
