Until recent times, IT organizations were referred to as cost centers.  They were plagued by issues such as too many servers to manage, mediocre application delivery and performance, and constant resource capacity challenges.  Today the primary role of an IT organization is to deliver services that will enable and support the business direction.  At the same time, the technology landscape has changed significantly.  Making the best technology choices is critical for establishing and maintaining the competitive edge of a successful business.

The optimum blend of service selections from a plethora of choices is a daunting proposition for the modern business.  Service options can include, but are not limited to, in-house, managed, outsourced, cloud, and hybrid service solutions.  StratoGrid Advisory expert staff can help your business make these critical choices..  We will ensure that your business avoids the cost of mistakes resulting from needless solution complexity and extraneous technology.  Our advisors will help you analyze your current infrastructure and application state and present service and technology options that best support and align with your business direction.  Contact StratoGrid Advisory and enhance your business competitiveness today.

Today’s information technologies are changing rapidly.  The server processing requirements and the corresponding data usage demands are growing exponentially.  The promise of employing cloud services to help alleviate this challenge is a tempting solution.  However, cloud services can introduce additional integration complexity with you organization’s people, processes and IT infrastructure.  In addition, 3rd-party intranet connections may expose your vital business information and data to external security threats.  This can create the perfect storm that could quickly overwhelm your IT department and result in the loss of current business opportunities and clients.

Our team of experienced advisors will help you assess your IT infrastructure and the current state of its architecture.  They will assist you with the identification of potential gaps and develop remediation plans to address the corresponding findings.  StratoGrid’s Advisory’s targeted remediation plans will prioritize tasks based on risk level and importance to the business.
