Customers rely on SA to implement solutions that optimize their IT environments and maximize their return on technology investments. Whether your strategy is to go full public cloud, private cloud or a hybrid solution, you need a partner who understands corporate data center environments, virtualization, cloud migration and management of your mixed environment. In addition, you want a partner with the experience to identify and mitigate risks associated with IT projects. SA is that partner– and helping customers take full advantage of their technology investments is what we are all about.

Audits & Assessments

The first step in any project is a proper assessment of the current environment. Our Solution Architects perform Capacity and Performance Assessments, Gap Analysis, Cloud Readiness Assessments and Health Checks.

Advisory Services

While the industry moves to “everything in the cloud” and “everything as a service” (XaaS), do you know what workloads and applications make the most sense to migrate to the cloud? If so, do you know what it takes to migrate and then manage them once they are there?

Clients who prefer to do the implementation work themselves can take advantage of our expertise and past experience by leveraging our Advisory Services. These services include on-site workshops, training, lab testing, project planning and quality assurance during implementation.

Health Checks & Optimization

SA provides a variety of Health Check services across the IT environment to ensure systems meet industry best practices for configuration and management. We use a combination of manufacturer, industry, and proprietary tools developed in-house in conjunction with stakeholder discussions. Our Health Checks cover configuration, management, operations, capacity planning and security as they relate to various IT systems, whether in the corporate data center, in a hosted facility or in the cloud. The end goal is to improve our customers’ business operations through efficient use of technology.

Sample Health Checks

  • Active Directory
  • Exchange
  • Hypervisor configuration, performance and resilience
  • System Center (SCCM/SCOM/Orchestrator)
  • Networking (LAN/WAN/Internet/etc.)
