There is a very high cost associated with technology when running the modern business and keeping pace with it can be a challenge for any organisation, regardless of size.
Your technology should be supporting your business-critical objectives and working as hard as you are to deliver. By utilising the right mix of technology in the right way you can maximise its effectiveness and squeeze even more from your investment.
This is where eSpida can help. We don't believe in technology for technology's sake. We believe in smart design and smart usage that leaves you with an infrastructure on which you can rely. We believe in IT that gets on and does what it is supposed to do, leaving you to get on with running your business. It is about seeing through all of the 'noise' around IT and making sure it mirrors your business architecture.
So where do you start? Start by understanding your organisation and its commercial objectives; IT has to support those, not fight against them. Then consider the challenges that your business is facing and how your business is architected.
Through the delivery of a review or an IT healthcheck, we can determine the current scope and usage of your infrastructure and begin to build a picture of a better landscape. It is only through real understanding and testing of that infrastructure that you can begin to design a solution that will deliver against your objectives.
Techinical Design Authority (TDA) workshops cover a wide range of areas that need to be considered including firewall & security, storage, fabric, backup & recovery, disaster recovery to name but a few. It is these sessions that will lead to the development of a Statement of Requirements - your blueprint on which to build.
