Big Data

Customer Challenges

We live in a data-driven world. Companies are leveraging large pools of data to formulate their business strategy. New technologies are being developed every day and with that, more data is being created. We see this trend in Ancestry.com. They are generating new data streams with the addition of DNA processing to help clients make family connections. They can now sequence a client's DNA and match the client with other people in its database. Each industry has similar use cases for utilizing big data. The way your oranization defines its data strategy and approach makes a critical difference in your ability to compete in the future.

Cloud

Customer Challenges

The cloud is not a one-size-fits-all solution, nor is it likely to replace your IT infrastructure. Each model needs to be customized and architected to fit your specific business goals. With such a wide range of messaging, discovering your cloud agenda is a confusing endeavor. Some companies want to use cloud for test and development, others for production, still others for backup and recovery. We work closely with you to define your goals, while ensuring your data is secure and available when and where you need it.

Public Cloud: Public cloud addresses your technology needs while shifting from capital operational costs. It is an efficient way to control costs while maintaining transparency, agility, and scalability across increasingly complex IT environments. Public cloud allows you to focus on managing IT services instead of supporting the needs of a growing data center.

Private Cloud: Private clouds are utilized by many IT organizations to redirect their focus from building to managing infrastructure. By combining virtualization with automation, private cloud enables various business units to automatically provision their data needs. The main benefit of private cloud is the ability for you to remain in control and compliant while allowing users to allocate services as needed. Private cloud gives you the agility of public cloud with the security of private infrastructure.

We understand that not all cloud offerings can meet your unique requirements. With our consultative approach, vast experience, and
wide range of cloud offerings, we can design a private, public, and/or hybrid solution around your business needs. This will empower you to integrate your existing infrastructure while leveraging the benefits of cloud computing.
