IT CONSULTING PROJECTS FOR YOUR BUSINESS: LET’S GET STARTED

Are IT solutions a player in your business goals and objectives? If not, we encourage you to talk with an IT support company.  Today’s business climate is intensely demanding, and technology services can play a pivotal role in shaping your success. Companies need help to find ways to be more productive, secure and competitive. Whether you need help on a project or want a top-to-bottom operational assessment, IT consulting can help your business with everything from infrastructure and cybersecurity to data management, cloud computing, privacy issues, and more. 

WHY IS A DEDICATED STAFF NOT ENOUGH AT TIMES?

For many companies, supporting information technology demands of today’s workplace is increasingly challenging. Internal IT staff are often spread thin, may not have the breadth of skills needed to keep up, and are difficult to recruit and retain in a highly competitive market. The Co-Managed IT Services model is designed to answer this challenge.

As a Co-Managed IT services provider, they can help your internal IT department be more successful. Assistance can be provided through services known as Virtual CIO.  Here an IT company can function as a virtual Chief Information Officer by helping align technology with your business.

A Chief Information Officer (CIO), provides a company with better ways of working with customers, streamlining workflows for greater productivity, risk management, and more. Until now, only large corporations and businesses had the financial wherewithal to employ this position. As your managed IT services provider, TeamLogicIT Plano can function as your virtual CIO.  Rather than making a full-time hire, you can utilize TeamLogicIT Plano as an ongoing service, or it can be for IT consulting just when you need it. We collaborate with you, helping to assess your operational environment to strategize where IT can help to advance your business objectives.  It is IT expertise when you need it, provided by your trusted advisor.  Services in this area include:

  • Technology roadmap development and review
  • Ongoing IT planning and budgets
  • Technology & business risk assessment
  • Technology planning & deployment
  • Vendor management
  • IT expertise and leadership

IS A REMOTE WORKFORCE THE NEW NORMAL?

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, combined with people’s growing desire to work remotely, has shifted the workplace dynamic for the foreseeable future. This presents new IT challenges and opportunities.  Remote workforce support can assist your company with the “onsite-to-offsite transformation,” ensuring your remote workers have highly-available, highly-secure work environments.
 
The assessment begins at the current business workplace, taking into account everything from setting up and securing VPNs, to protecting company data on personal devices and much more. The approach is based on industry best practices and documented processes, all designed to help you manage the risks of employees working remotely. Backup, antivirus, firewall, and other data protection are essential to safeguard your company’s applications and information. As such, services include:

  • Identifying assets and data that require protection
  • Protecting your assets proactively
  • Detecting incidents and remediating remotely
  • Supporting help desk inquiries rapidly

WHAT IS PROJECT OUTSOURCING?

Advancing at light speed; this is how technology moves in today’s world, so it’s realistic to expect that the IT skill sets inside most businesses can’t keep up. When a project comes along that requires expertise outside of your IT wheelhouse, turn to TeamLogic IT Plano.

Projects and services that would otherwise consume the full attention of your IT staff may include the following:  network/server design, network assessment, IT procurement, structured cabling, and IT relocation.

  • Network/server design – A business network works tirelessly to make sure their company’s data is traveling where it is intended to go.  It appears to be working fine, but just like your car, it requires service, and will eventually require an overhaul.  TeamLogicIT engineers and technicians work with businesses of all sizes to ensure their network and server design is up to the task.  From on-premise servers to enterprise grade systems make able to handle massive demand spikes, TeamLogicIT works to make sure your business system delivers industry-leading speed and security.  Our engineers follow industry “best practices” and make sure our clients take appropriate steps to insure the most common issues are avoided in the design/planning phase. This is one of the most overlooked aspects of any project implementation or rollout and it is critical to a successful project.
  • Network Assessment – A network assessment is a detailed report and analysis of your company’s existing IT infrastructure, management, security, processes, and performance.  The purpose of the assessment is to identify opportunities for improvement and get a comprehensive view and current state of your existing network.
  • IT Procurement – As a nationwide network, TeamLogicIT brings significant economies-of-scale to bear in procuring your IT equipment and software licenses.  Our experts consult with your stakeholders to identify your business needs, budget parameters, and work only with reputable suppliers.  And since we are vendor agnostic, your company can be confident our recommendations are based strictly on the best fit for your business.
  • Structured Cabling – This is the design and installation of a cabling system that will support multiple hardware uses and be suitable for today’s needs and those of the future. With a correctly installed system, current and future requirements can be met, and hardware that is added in the future will be supported.  Cabling  is an essential component of business performance and the backbone of your company’s communications network.  TeamLogicIT advises businesses on decisions regarding methodology and design as well as carriers to ensure proper installation whether the business is expanding, relocating, or is ready for a cabling upgrade from Cat 5 to Cat 6.
  • IT Relocation – While the long-term results may be beneficial, relocating is disruptive to business and revenue in the shorter term. A company needs an experienced IT relocation services partner to ensure that their entire technology infrastructure will be up and running immediately.  Relocating a company’s technology requires advanced planning and a keen understanding of logistics. Disconnecting and reassembling technology is a suitable time to re-assess core infrastructure.  It also may be time to address upgrades, phase out antique systems, leverage cloud services, etc.  TeamLogicIT experts can help your business strategize how to best optimize the transition and facilitate every aspect of the move.
