Say no to "as needed basis" IT infrastructure management. Proactively manage your IT infrastructure to achieve cost-efficiency, reliability, and scalability.   

 

 

 

 

Infrastructure for remote work - did you implement a "Plan B"?

During the initial COVID-19 lockdown, organizations were in a rush to enable remote work. Often, this led to implementing "Plan B" options, like VPN. A Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) on the other hand, is a more long-term, sustainable "Plan A" option for large corporations, especially those that need to meet various regulatory requirements (like financial institutions, insurance companies, healthcare institutions, and legal firms).  

Windows Virtual Desktop Proof of Concept

Price: $15,000+ (various ECIF funding buckets available) 

Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) is much more cost-efficient and scalable than other traditional VDI options that typically require large, upfront CapEx. This modern, Cloud-based VDI uses existing Microsoft 365 licenses and a pay-per-use model - especially useful for organizations who'd like to have VDI available as an option at all times at a lower cost.  

Test out the benefits of Windows Virtual Desktop in your organization with a WVD Proof of Concept (POC) for up to 25 of your users. A POC is a smart way to verify whether WVD is the best option for your organization, whether it is for a specific use case (i.e. to enable remote workers to access QuickBooks) or for a full-scale implementation. This POC also includes a 90-day trial to Nerdio's Manager for WVD to simplify ongoing management of WVD.

IIROC’s WVD Proof of Concept with ProServeIT was so successful that the company is on track to deploy 250 workstations within ~3 months, with a further 250+ workstations scheduled for Spring 2021.

Cloud-based infrastructure leads to unprecedented agility and cost savings.

There is a major shift taking place in infrastructure these days. Organizations are looking for the ability to be more agile and increase and decrease capacity at will. Compared to traditional on-premise infrastructure, Azure, the next generation Cloud-based option, provides organizations with flexibility to increase and decrease capacity as employee head counts fluctuate, and provides organizations with cost-saving opportunities (as you only pay for what you consume). 

 

Azure Assessment & Roadmap

If your organization is evaluating Cloud-based infrastructure, start with an Azure Assessment to uncover all dependencies within your current network, understand the cost of running Azure, and discover any potential security risks in your environment (like Shadow IT).

Case Study

Azure Assessment

planet-W Canada        organization-w Automotive     employees51-200

 

Wakefield needed to understand how Azure-ready each of their business-critical servers would be, and what, if any, preliminary work would need to be completed on the servers to ensure that they could successfully run on Azure. The Azure Assessment provided Wakefield with a clear picture of the benefits of Azure, requirements for an Azure Migration, and a projected cost analysis to help them budget for their new Cloud-based infrastructure.  

 

 

 

 

Maintain infrastructure efficiently

Servers, workstations, networks, laptops, mobile devices - maintaining infrastructure lifecycles for these vital products can be time consuming. Instead of burning in-house IT resources on these, outsourcing that responsibility to a Managed Services (MS) provider increases the value per dollar spent.   

MS allows the freedom and flexibility to choose what kind of IT support works for your budget. A Service Level Agreement (SLA) allows you to handle your hardware and software effectively, while reducing the total cost of device ownership, and creating and deploying IT strategies that enable your organization to grow and succeed in a safe and secure manner.

Proactively maintain infrastructure.

Your infrastructure, a big part of your business strategy, needs to be considered from a holistic view for it to be a true business enabler. Thinking of your infrastructure investment on an "as needed" basis leads to redundancy and over-spend. An IT Roadmap provides your organization with that overview you need when making decisions on your infrastructure.

IT Roadmap

Price: $7,500+

Understand the most efficient ways to leverage IT as a critical business advantage.

This advisory engagement helps your management team by reviewing and measuring two aspects of your business (your business needs and your IT capabilities), performing a gap analysis, and providing recommendations to close the gap between the two. You will receive an IT Roadmap; a detailed report (typically 40-70 pages) that not only shows you the gaps and how to fix them, but also addresses any current IT issues, inefficient technology, and how these changes can increase productivity in your organization.

Solid Technology Framework Means IT As a Business Enabler

Security

Cybersecurity should be the foundation of any digital transformation journey. Just the way a house needs a solid foundation, your business's technology framework should have a solid cybersecurity practice and plan.

Business Apps

SMBs tend to use 10+ business applications and large corporations can use 100+ business applications. Are any of your business apps serving similar purposes? Are your business apps integrated with each other?

User Experience

Whatever you implement in your organization, it needs to be user-friendly in order to achieve end-user buy-in. No digital transformation journey is complete without a solid adoption plan and effective end-user support.
