More "hands on" than normal consultancy, but still all about you and your systems. Get an honest, professional and external review of your system, including a detailed but simple to follow report.
IT environments are becoming increasingly complex. Physical and virtual infrastructures with third party products, applications, customisations and systems are rarely simple. Finding the cause of a particular performance problem, or ensuring database queries complete within satisfactory timeframes can be very time consuming and intricate.
This can also be the ideal tool to help break down resistance to change. It may be that the leadership team is keen to move IT forward, but pehaps feel the internal IT department isn't necessarily in the best position to give an impartial review of the current situation. Or it might be an IT manager desperate to update the system but in need of external review and report to present to the management team.
What happens during an ICT Health check?
An Ergo System or Network Health Check includes assessing your current infrastructure during an onsite visit, then putting together a series of recommendations, in a comprehensive but easy to follow report, detailing our findings. If there are particular areas of concern you would like us to focus on, we will of course be happy to do so.
A Health Check can focus in on any area of your infrastructure, but will typically include:
- Network Switches and Links
- Server Specifications and Age
- Workstation (desktop and laptop) numbers, general specification and approximate age
- Wireless network povision
From this we can paint a total picture of your current IT estate, with full network diagram, connections, speeds, server specs, switch make and model, uplink connections and speeds, quantity of machines connected at each location and much more.
Ultimately Ergo's Health Check, and the in-depth report created from it, will help you isolate key problem areas in your organisation's IT infrastructure along with specific recommendations for resolving these problems - including upgrades or reconfigurations.
“We’ve already recommended Ergo’s infrastructure services to several schools. They have an honest approach and really take onboard what it is you’re trying to achieve. Ergo took the time to understand where we wanted to take teaching and learning at Priestnall School then looked at a solution to help meet our specific requirements."
