During a data center consolidation process, the client identified issues that were resulting in higher costs, complexity and business risks.
The various departments were siloed and using an assortment of processes and applications hosted in multiple data centers. They had complex interdependences and integrations or did not follow any automated integration or dependences and relied on manual processes. They all followed their individual licensing polices and hosted monitoring agents on different servers, using data centers which were being maintained by different resources. There was no enterprise-level standard maintained and best practices were diluted and lost. This resulted in a high level of cost, complexity, increased risk and the creation of siloed subject matter experts.
Stratacent’s experienced consultants discovered, analyzed, and documented the legacy systems and process. They conducted a GAP analysis, defined simple architecture and provided inputs for client stakeholders to make critical business decisions. We implemented an enterprise-level automation solution with one licensing policy for thousands of users, created enterprise-level standards and a central knowledge repository. We also facilitated an application and databases migration to a single datacenter location thereby by increasing the SLA of data and application availability. We refined processes and complied to enterprise level standard and solutions. This provided the client with a roadmap for next five years and improved their risk mitigation strategy.
