Client requirements sometimes dictate the necessity for IDS to deliver not just professional services but a comprehensive solution that may include hardware, software and a range of lifecycle services such as business case development, procurement, architecture design, deployment, implementation, training and operational support.

IDS’ managed storage services assessment allows clients to outsource certain tasks and archival functions for services such as disaster recovery, backups and offsite mirroring. These include, but are not limited to, facility expansions, value-added services, professional services, network monitoring and reporting services. The software and services provided help enterprise IT organizations better manage the complexities of their data storage environments, increasing management control and asset efficiencies to reduce storage management costs and complexities.
With data and information central to the digital economy and as public and private sector organizations seek to collect and archive greater volumes of client data, it becomes increasingly important to determine how to manage and save these measurements cost effectively.
When it comes to solving the problem of bottlenecks in the application environment, a WAN optimization service can be more cost-effective than deploying in-house technology.
Enterprises may choose managed WAN-optimization services over in-house appliances for various reasons. One reason is tactical: A WAN-optimization service can adjust quickly to organizational needs. It scales with expansion and gives IT managers more flexibility to solve physical network slowdowns while avoiding the high cost of retrofitting branch offices with WAN-optimization appliances. For example, if a retailer decides to open several new stores internationally but bandwidth is prohibitively expensive, IT can use a managed WAN-optimization service to get desired throughput for point-of-sale applications.
“Cutting costs while increasing efficiencies will be the mantra for IT departments in 2009,” said Tracy Corbo, Senior Analyst for IDC. “This will require centralization and consolidation of IT personnel and services. Consequently, we believe that this will result in growing opportunities in the area of managed network services, with WAN optimization as one such service that can be readily outsourced through a service provider. The technology is already proven and as a managed service it offers both CAPEX savings as well as freeing up staff for other projects.”
IDS’ technical professionals have assisted numerous organizations in assessing, evaluating, deploying and managing WAN optimization solutions.
Access management is a simple concept. Every organization has information that needs to be protected from unauthorized disclosure. In that regard, public sector and private sector firms define policies that govern the access to specific classes of business and/or personal information. By leveraging partner solutions developed by global leaders in enterprise application development, IDS’s access management solution is designed to equip its clients with the automated capability to control the access of sensitive information.
Managing technology infrastructures that are designed to enable business to achieve organizational strategies is increasingly important. IDS possesses many years of private and public sector experience in developing network management solutions that facilitate critical business functions such as disaster recovery, high availability and continuity of operations. Our team will help you maximize your IT investments – from the network, to storage and applications with the power, scale and flexibility needed to manage today’s complex IT environments and data centers.
