Review, Strategise, Maintain…
Blue Chip offers three discrete services to ensure the health of your IT Infrastructure:
- Infrastructure Review
- IT Strategy
- IT Health Check
The Blue Chip Infrastructure Review provides you with a 360° view of your IT environment and maps the results against industry best practice standards. Analysing the technologies and services that your business currently employs, the review will provide you with independent expert analysis and the foundation to plan for development.
The Infrastructure Review will highlight three key areas within your IT:
- Risks to your business
- Performance and availability shortfalls
- Network development to meet business needs
You will receive a detailed report with recommendations, actions and any investment required to match best practice standards across these areas; in line with your business growth strategy.
Technology Strategy: Driving IT based on your Business Strategy
Blue Chip’s Technology Strategy is a consultative service whereby we work with you to understand your business objectives and debate how your IT is going to evolve to support those objectives. We identify current IT challenges and build a long-term, phased plan of how these challenges can be addressed as part of an overall agenda that meets the goals of the business. Planned IT projects are examined to help ensure that these are aligned with the business objectives to ensure that every pound spent on IT is spent wisely. We document recommendations and actions and your Account Manager works with you throughout the review period to drive the actions that we agree. We pride ourselves on providing an impartial, honest and professional opinion that you can trust.
This service is built on our absolute understanding of your business and a mutually agreeable vision for the future, coupled with extensive experience of today’s technology marketplace, where technology is going and the cost implications.
IT Health Check
The Blue Chip IT Health Check provides you with a point-in-time assessment of your infrastructure to support the identification of investment and maintenance decisions during the course of the infrastructure lifecycle. The importance of periodic maintenance is crucial in maximising the value of your IT, and is an aspect which Blue Chip have a wealth of experience in managing across many of our customers.
The service takes a high-level view of key Hardware, Software, and Infrastructure services deployed with the intention of providing a documented assessment of constraints, concerns, and potential improvements that can be made. Our IT Health Check ensures that you get an honest, top-down appraisal of your current infrastructure from a highly-experienced consultant that isn’t predicated on a specific need for change.
