Migrations & Cloud Solutions

Inventory & Audits

Our audit and assessment program quickly delivers unparalleled insight into your technology infrastructure.

The Overview

Having a clear understanding of the equipment within your data centre, and the status of that equipment, is imperative before beginning an IT change event. Once you have an understanding of your environment, you gain valuable insights into the capabilities of your facility: uncover redundancies and opportunities to downsize, legacy equipment that may need to be updated or decommissioned, and more opportunities to streamline your operations.

The Benefits

  • Real-time transparency of the current state
  • Reveal inefficiencies, redundancies, and legacy equipment to retire
  • Reduce power consumption and your physical footprint
  • Full preparation for any and all IT change events
