How do we consolidate your data?
A common problem enterprise IT groups face is the resource flooding that occurs in their data centers throughout the years. This cycle is inevitable in most environments and is typically the result of a growing collection of small inefficiencies. When combined, these inefficiencies create a bloated environment that wastes significant resources and causes frustration that often makes its way to the organization’s clients. There comes a time when it makes the best financial sense to invest in a data consolidation effort.

PSI’s Solution Delivery Methodology (SDM©) looks at all three dimensions that make up the desired solution: Technology, Engineering, and Management to structure the delivery of any solution in a prescribed Solution Delivery Lifecycle (SDL©). PSI will work with clients to identify all three dimensions of the desired solution:
PTechnology dimension: Identifying the specific cloud platform, and whether a standard or hybrid platform consisting of multiple vendors is appropriate.
Engineering dimension: Working with the client to identify desired services such as moving computers, storage, and/or network services, and selecting the appropriate cloud provider.
Management dimension: Identifying measures to set risk parameters that may prompt the transfer of operations to the cloud when existing operations are at risk. Another example is setting policies for data back up with alternative providers and developing policies to ensure security and compliance standards in the cloud.
