ICS: What Makes Us Different?
ICS is comprised of technical managers, project managers, design engineers and technical implementation specialists who have been working in the data center/IT infrastructure business for most of their working careers. As a result, we’re in the unique position of being able to provide IT and facility expertise under one roof, effectively bridging the gap between the two disciplines. Most of our team members have been in your shoes when it comes to the challenges of managing data center services so we’re able to quickly develop custom solutions to address your business needs.
We combine our years of experience with customizable processes and in-house developed tools to streamline your day-to-day operations or, to address a one-time initiative such as a data center move. Developed by data center specialists, our power management and space planning tools used in our Capacity Planning Service are also used to support the rack planning activities required for a Data Center Relocation, taking the guesswork out of power and space planning while mapping all inventory components from source to target location.
We’re an end-to-end services provider when it comes to data center consulting. This means that if we work with you to develop a Data Center strategy, we have the expertise to help you with the execution of that strategy from defining site requirements, to site buildout, and on through relocation or consolidation. This helps ensure that important IT standards and requirements are not compromised throughout your Data Center life cycle, potentially putting your business at risk.
Our Business Partners
ICS is a vendor neutral consulting firm. Our analysis of vendor options (such as a storage manufacturer, a co-lo provider or a cabling company) is always based on an objective analysis of our client’s unique business requirements, our knowledge of the changing market, and the process controls evident within our IT Vendor Management Service. Although we maintain strong relationships throughout the data center industry to strengthen our services, we remain vendor agnostic in order to meet the unique characteristics of each of our clients.
The majority of our clients are in the Financial Services industry including regional and international banks, brokerage houses, insurance providers, payment processors and personal financial services. We have also supported the needs of clients in the communications, transportation and healthcare industries as well as in the public sector. Whether working with Fortune 500 or smaller businesses, we bring the same experience, methods and tools with us to meet our customer’s needs.
