ASSESSMENT OFFERINGS FOR THE NETWORK, SERVERS AND DESKTOPS
Most companies simply have no information on the actual performance, condition, traffic, and security vulnerabilities on their network systems, servers and desktops. Without some insight into the facts, it is impossible to make informed decisions.
We offer a suite of assessments aimed at these important components in a company’s IT infrastructure. Our assessments are specifically designed for measuring current performance levels and making recommendations to improve response times, availability, and make proper upgrade investments.
We incorporate a logical strategy of collecting strategic performance data and then analyzing this data in order to provide an objective performance assessment of the network, servers and desktops. By defining and measuring key performance indicators, we are able to accurately assess the current state of the network, servers and/or printers.
The magic is not in the tools we use, but rather in the experience we leverage from designing, building and troubleshoot IT infrastructures of all shapes and sizes. In order to provide our clients with a solution that best fits their unique needs, we offer various levels of assessments for their network, servers and/or desktops.
Using graphs and detailed data captured over the sampling period, we provide valuable insight into existing systems usage and performance. Information from the assessment will provide a means for companies to identify sources of poor performance and estimate the impact of changes and additions required for issue remediation.
To collect information, we install the appropriate tools on the network, and gather ‘live’ traffic information sent from target devices. The information is then evaluated and reported in a user-friendly format with clear recommendations for improvements. Using this information, configuration changes, upgrades and future investment areas can be determined providing a means to make proper investment decisions.
Customers who have leveraged our Assessment services benefit in the following ways:
- REDUCED OPERATIONAL COSTS
- REDUCED TROUBLESHOOTING TIME
- IMPROVED APPLICATION RESPONSE TIMES
- BETTER INVESTMENT DECISIONS BASED ON REAL NETWORK VISIBILITY
- BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF VOICE AND VIDEO READINESS
- BETTER USE POLICIES FOR APPLICATIONS AND WEB USAGE
- INCREASED AUDITING AND COMPLIANCE REGULATIONS
- FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS ARE CLEARLY COMMUNICATED AND PRIORITIZED
All of these key indicators are jointly evaluated in order to give us invaluable insight into the actual performance of the network, servers and desktops. By focusing on the “cold hard facts”, we are able to provide an objective view of the current performance level as well as future scalability.
We then clearly define and prioritize any issues using the following priority rating system:
For any areas of the infrastructure that are experiencing issues, we clearly define the issue and outline of our recommendations to resolve the issues.
SERVERS / DESKTOPS ASSESSMENT
IT Solutions Chicago
Our server and desktop assessment is a good fit for answering the question, “We know that the network is not the issue, so why is this particular device performing so poorly?”
The Server / Desktop Assessments focus on analyzing and measuring the real-time data from the various components that directly affect the performance of a particular device. CPU and memory utilization levels, disk space utilization levels, IP configuration information, and other related performance measurements are gathered and analyzed. Security issues are also evaluated by assessing OS revisions as well as the services and ports running on each device. Virus and/or spyware scans are performed on each device to ensure these are not the root cause of latency issues. The Server / Desktop Assessment is the perfect complement to our popular Network Assessments.
