Centralising & standardising ICT
Centralising and standardising ICT across your international group – implementing harmonised, high performance communications solutions for business benefit.
Gaining control of a disparate and widely dispersed network is an important step for international organisations in controlling and reducing costs and providing better, more stable and more integrated voice and data services. Creating a central, IP-based communications infrastructure provides the greatest potential cost savings and efficiency gains. It transforms a fragmented network into a streamlined, efficiently managed infrastructure that is easily scalable and adaptable to the present and future needs of the organisation. And it provides a stable platform to introduce Unified Communications solutions that can boost collaboration, bringing associated productivity and efficiency gains. The ability to work together more effectively, with powerful conferencing, messaging and information sharing tools, greatly reduces the need for business travel, creating a major cost saving for international businesses.
NextiraOne can help you to achieve your goal of a centralised, standardised ICT environment by designing and creating a new IP-based infrastructure with the flexibility for future growth and change. Our experience in transformation [link to transformation] projects will help you to achieve the migration painlessly and seamlessly. And our solutions are designed to be sustainable and both cost and carbon efficient.
Most large international organisations have developed and evolved over time through organic growth and acquisition and their networks often reflect this, with local sites and subsidiaries making their own technology purchasing decisions. The result is a dispersed and disparate communications environment, pieced together to create a network which is unstable and inefficient.
NextiraOne can help you to improve your existing infrastructure in a number of ways that will provide better services, a more stable environment and improved business continuity together with operational and environmental savings.
As a first step NextiraOne can audit and assess your existing ICT systems and improve your central architecture so that it immediately gives you greater control, a more stable infrastructure and more business efficiency. Our international service management [link] approach can support your existing network, centrally providing consistent levels of support and maintenance across your sites. At the same time our experts can help you to look at system performance, business needs and future planning to create a transformation project that will ultimately provide your organisation with a high capacity, high performance centralised network that will also be cost-effective and energy efficient to meet your Green [link to Green IT] objectives and introduce tangible productivity gains.
Replacing locally managed and supported PBX-based networks with core servers centrally located in one or two data centres [link] creates a flexible, dynamic network that can grow with the organisation and its voice and data requirements. It creates a more resilient environment which is easier and more cost-effective to support and maintain and to monitor for performance.
Consolidation also introduces enormous energy efficiencies both in reducing the number of server rooms and amount of equipment required to run the network, especially with server virtualisation and the introduction of new blade technologies, and in the use of energy-efficient cooling and air conditioning and other physical aspects of the data centre environment.
