EagleRock’s IT Assessment and Planning Services for your business is the answer.
Envision your Organization’s Technology Goals
Because your technology plan will become a detailed, written document that connects your organization’s current use and future needs of technology to achieve your organization’s mission, it is critical to begin this planning activity with your Mission Statement and Services. This statement will be included in your technology plan and will act as your compass when moving forward with technology.
Assess your Current Technology
We will develop a complete understanding of the technology needs required to meet your organization’s technology goals through completion of your technology inventory, including all hardware and software currently in use throughout your organization.
Assess Internal Practices
We will help you assess your organization’s current internal policies and procedures in the areas of technology training, security and disaster recovery.
Survey Staff Skills
This process will identify which of your staff members may need training, and discover who can act as resources within your organization.
Create your Technology Plan
We will utilize the information gathered during the envisioning and assessment process to design a technology plan that will take your organization from its current operating reality to your technology goals. Your technology plan will address the following areas:
Your immediate technology needs will be addressed by priority. Critical needs are classified as situations that severely hamper or prevent the execution of activities key to your organization.
By insuring that all servers and other mission-critical appliances are hardware fault-tolerant, we can significantly minimize downtime and remediation costs when a failure occurs. For example, when properly implemented, server hard disk fault-tolerance can allow the continuity of normal server operation should a hard disk fail.
Numerous factors have the ability to corrupt your critical data. Viruses, spyware, and other unforeseen causes such as unstable or “dirty” power conditions have all been shown to corrupt systems and data. We will review your current strategies and make recommendations to ensure the integrity of your data, as well as the ability to quickly restore and access data in the event of corruption or disaster.
In many cases, replacing aging equipment actually helps reduce your costs. It is more economical to replace aging workstations than to continue to upgrade or maintain them, when actual physical labor costs are recognized, along with the cost of replacement parts.
It’s never too early to address disaster recovery. We will help you develop a comprehensive disaster recovery plan that you can implement immediately, to get your organization up and running as quickly as possible in the event of disaster, service interruption or catastrophic failure to your environment.
We will schedule implementation of your technology plan in phases tailored to meet your organization’s forecasting and budgetary requirements, starting with your highest priorities first.
We will successfully implement each phase of your technology plan in order for you to achieve your technology goals.
Your technology plan will be evaluated and revised throughout each phase of implementation, in order to insure the successful achievement of your technology goals.
