The benefits

If you’re just managing, you’re not

Information is what keeps your business going and gives it a competitive advantage. Data use is exploding and data centres need to expand to cope with the demand. But the cost of storing data and tying up your IT department to manage it can be high, particularly at a time when IT budgets are being slashed while the demand to have accurate data always on-hand is increasing.

That’s why more organisations are looking to virtualisation and cloud services to help them reduce costs, improve the way the business runs and increase productivity. But how do you know where to start?

Start with a BT Advise Compute Quick Start
The BT Advise Compute Quick Start gives you a fast overview of your business, its goals, and the context it operates in. Once that’s established we get our experts to look into the issues you’re facing and use their vast experience to predict what you may face in the near future. We can help you get the most out of your existing technology, recommending solutions to improve business efficiencies and providing support needed to run it.

We help you plan how you’ll move to the cloud
The Quick Start highlights any areas for improvement. Then we make a plan that will make those improvements and help your business move smoothly into the cloud. The result will improve the efficiency of your data centre infrastructure, and that will mean less management time. With this mix of consultancy, professional services and tools, we can transform your business.

BT Global Services was the most convincing of the worldwide IT companies that competed for our data centre management design contract. Whereas other companies bombarded us with a load of marketing jargon, BT Global Services brought real people and proven processes to the table. They were able to convinve us with actual solid eaxamples of their work, especially in mission-critical environments.”
