Infrastructure Transformation

IT organizations are thinking about their data center and infrastructure needs in innovative new ways. At SINTRX, we bring years of experience in IT infrastructure, data centers and service delivery models, and we know how to bring business strategy in line with IT capabilities, assets and applications. That gives us the ability to help clients see the big picture while implementing solutions that work on the front lines of the business, taking into account everything from tax and real estate to organizational change. Because we are independent, we do not sell infrastructure products, and we maintain relationships with all the major vendors .

How we can help
One of the challenges of infrastructure optimization is the number of options on the table for everything from networks and servers to storage and appliances. Lease temporary facilities or build from scratch? “Patch and run” the existing infrastructure? Outsource? Move to the cloud? At the same time, the business environment is changing rapidly in some fundamental ways. The workforce is increasingly mobile. As consumers, they expect more from business applications. And the security demands are only growing.
There is also the issue of aligning with the business. After all, this is not some abstract technology exercise. This is about serving the business better, which requires understanding its needs today and what they are likely to be in the future.

Here are some of the ways we can help:

  • Develop an objective view of the efficiency and effectiveness of the current infrastructure operating model, service delivery model and assets
  • Assess cost effectiveness, risk and other systemic qualities, such as reliability, scalability and adaptability
  • Evaluate internal capabilities and skills
  • Identify business-driven future-state capabilities and needs
  • Explore opportunities for improvement through optimization, consolidation and other forms of transformation
  • Examine alternate service delivery models such as outsourcing, data center co-location or cloud computing
  • Develop an individualized improvement strategy and roadmap
  • Develop and manage project plans to execute implementations and consolidations
  • Align application portfolios and IT project portfolios
  • Develop enterprise architecture roadmaps
  • Develop and implement business continuity and disaster recovery programs to protect critical business assets
  • Rationalize application portfolio
  • Design and implement shared services infrastructure
  • Improve service delivery through the development or implementation of the full life cycle of IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) processes
  • Design programs to align capacity and demand across the infrastructure and data center stack
