Consulting and Professional Services

We help many of the world’s top companies solve their IT infrastructure challenges.

Enterprise Computing

Transitioning from expensive legacy environments to dynamic models? It’s an important agenda item for IT infrastructure executives. Yet moving from traditional data centers to a more versatile (and virtual) environment isn’t always straightforward. How can your IT delivery models keep pace and be more dynamic? And how can you virtualize your IT infrastructure and boost return on assets?

At e2e’s Enterprise Computing practice, we provide strategic technology direction for data center design and assessment. For example, we help customers determine how to best leverage vitualization, cloud technologies and cloud services in ways that best meet their needs. Leveraging our team’s expertise across hundreds of projects, you gain fresh ideas and insight on IT Infrastructure plans and technologies, operational assessments and optimization.

Services We Offer

Other Enterprise Computing Services include:

  • Virtualization Services
  • Enterprise System Management
  • Data Center Consolidation
  • Server Rationalization
  • Mainframe Optimization

e2e’s Virtualization Services group designs new and flexible infrastructures that free your management to allocate IT resources as needed. Using our Virtual Maturity Model, we can help you determine where you are today with this technology and then work on moving you up the maturity path to maximize the business benefits that virtualization can deliver.

Our Enterprise System Management service monitors your business systems and practices to determine their overall health in the enterprise. Using the latest tools and processes, we can architect and implement an effective ESM solution that regularly check your servers, mainframes, storage devices and applications wherever they reside. Our ESM offerings include consulting, design and deployment, end-to-end managed services, and service management.

For Data Center Consolidation and Server Rationalization services, we evaluate your IT infrastructure’s server capabilities and determine the best approach to maximize your ROI, often by using consolidation and virtualization techniques. Project success is measured by increased productivity, reduced costs, improved time-to-market, and a lower cost of operations.

Our Mainframe Optimization service helps you maximize your mainframe investments. For example, we show you how to delay mainframe upgrades by reducing CPU consumption, better tune existing applications, and improve processing to help your staff meet service levels. Clients typically report significant monthly savings in hardware and software licensing costs.

Infrastructure Security

Our team focuses on reducing and managing risk throughout your organization’s entire IT infrastructure.

  • Secure Internet Gateway Assessment
  • Risk Management
  • Security Architecture

Social media and web-based business applications help bring new productivity to your changing, virtualized workforce—and new risks to your networks. Mergers and acquisitions and major technology migrations complicate today’s security environment, as do personal network devices like smart phones and flash drives.

Few companies today have in-house expertise to defend against every threat. That’s why our Infrastructure Security Services team focuses on reducing and managing risk at all levels of your organization.

We begin each project engagement with clear business goals. We then develop a set of compliance roadmaps and risk assessments to identify the true costs of exposure and controls. We also help create more secure and resilient infrastructures by creating and deploying plans that prepare businesses for our outages and disasters.

Services We Offer

With a focus on planning and preparedness, our lifecycle of security services provides a sensible approach to protecting your information. By creating and deploying plans that prepare your business for outages and disasters, we help you create a more secure and resilient infrastructure.
