Data Center Assessments
Assessments: Evaluating the Glass House
Most IT decisions begin with a problem that needs to be solved, a strategic path to be followed or an evaluation of current capabilities against a defined standard or business requirement. Assessments assist IT organizations in understanding and prioritizing data center risks and identifying key investments that are required to meet a defined business goal. Whether addressing a new requirement or staying in compliance with an existing standard such as the redundancy/failover capabilities of a data center facility, ICS data center assessments help you identify where to start.
ICS offers two types of assessments:
- Low cost, quick turnaround scorecard based assessments
- In-depth assessments that evaluate your overall data center capabilities
Organizations can save significant dollars by clearly understanding their current state. An analysis of current positioning performed against strategic plans, business requirements or service capabilities is beneficial. Analyzing business requirements prior to investing in incremental assets and services saves costs and allows organizations to better meet requirements or to identify and close gaps.
ICS brings experience, tools and market insight into the process of current state assessments and in assisting customers with developing action plans, including cost benefit analysis to close any identified gaps.
