The business technology landscape is changing. In so many of today’s modern organizations, employees are working from anywhere at any time and on a multitude of devices. They’re using tablets and smartphones to communicate and collaborate with other stakeholders, access business data, and perform everyday job functions. They’re bringing their own devices to the office and using them on-the-go. At the same time, consumers are more vested and hands-on, performing self-service transactions through intuitive web portals that are tied into core business processes. Now factor in the exponential growth of data, and consider how this new landscape impacts IT.
Yesterday’s static networks simply cannot keep up with the anytime interactivity and anywhere mobility of this new workforce. Many were not built to support the direct input of stakeholders using customer-facing transactional interfaces that fuel backend processes, so these tools are now putting enormous strain on storage hardware and network bandwidth. Most cannot be scaled fast enough to handle ever-rising data volumes. Business has changed, and so too must IT networks.
At Encore Technology Group, we understand that IT infrastructure forms the critical foundation of all business tools, functions and workflows. In fact, many of today’s network infrastructures need to support much more than just data and traditional hardware, software and peripherals. Oftentimes, they also serve as the backbone of voice, video and mobility, and provide for the enablement of global connectivity and bring-your-own-device strategies. Because of these many variables, networks must essentially be as borderless as the people who rely on them every day.
No two networks are ever the same. Encore Technology Group is committed to building a network infrastructure that serves as a solid IT foundation for you – one that is as unique as your business. There are many factors to consider in the design, development and deployment of modern IT networks. During our discovery phase, we take the time to learn about your specific requirements; the demographics and roles of your various stakeholders; the unique dynamics of your operations; your existing infrastructure; and much more. We then take this valuable insight and combine it with best practices to design a borderless network based on your specific needs.
We believe in being proactive. We never want you to play catch-up with your IT infrastructure, nor do we want you to invest in “extras” you may not need for years. Therefore, your network will be built from the ground up to rapidly and reliably scale in a manner that outpaces your growth trajectory without overcompensating for it. We engineer turnkey borderless networks that are sophisticated and secure, and build massive flexibility and scalability opportunities into them. Our team will take a granular approach to proactive networking when we discuss with you things like on-premise storage versus hosted storage; data centers, virtualization and managed services in the cloud; and the benefits of unified communications. We’ll help you work through bring-your-own-device strategies and discuss how to put a fluid BYOD program to work for you.
When you operate a great network, few users notice how truly great it is. They know they can access their data, communicate and collaborate, and perform their job using the technology tools they have at their fingertips. In the world of IT, a quiet user is typically a happy user. What do users notice? They notice when the network is down, when bandwidth is tapped, when storage space is gone, when they have a virus, when they lose data, when disaster strikes … they notice when things go wrong. We know that you cannot afford to lose time or productivity because things go wrong, so we do everything in our power to make sure they don’t. The infrastructure we build for you will safeguard your business continuity through redundancy, security tools, malware prevention, backup schedules, disaster recovery measures and more – all of which will drive network stability, dependency, uptime, and ultimately, quiet, happy and productive users.
