With the right forward planning, your IT infrastructure should support your business
The importance of IT infrastructure is often overlooked, yet it is the foundation of any modern business.
Maintaining an up-to-date IT infrastructure is an essential investment in your business's future as you grow
Ageing IT systems can put a strain on a growing business which can lead to frustration and loss of productivity. Minimal investment in your IT infrastructure over a number of years will inevitably result in a higher investment outlay in a shorter period of time. Having a long-term IT strategy in place is a key requirement for any modern business.
Whether your business is a start-up looking to create IT Infrastructure from the ground up, or an organisation looking to develop an IT strategy, we can work with you to ensure your business requirements are met.
Having an on-premise server for your business could have a number of benefits over other infrastructure solutions. iTAG can help you identify which option is best for your business requirements.
With more functionality than ever before, using Cloud Computing to host your secure business data might be the best option for you. At iTAG we only provide Hosted Infrastructure solutions we trust.
Hybrid Infrastructure solutions use a mixture of both on-premise and hosted server options, giving your business the added advantage of flexibility. We can help you decide which option is right for you.
If your business ever requires remote support, Citrix systems can provide you with safe, secure access to your IT infrastructure, whilst reducing the workload of your computer hardware.
Finding the right hardware for your business to use day-to-day can be confusing. From Servers to desktops, iTAG can work with your team to equip them with the right tools for the job
Losing your network connection at the wrong time is not only frustrating, but bad for business. We can help you determine whether a new Wireless or Cabled solution is right for your business needs.
Opting for an in-house server
Not every business’s data has to be in The Cloud. Sometimes, an on-premise server is all that's required. iTAG is here to help you decide what’s right for your organisation.
There are plenty of reasons why an on-premise server might be better for your business: from data security to cost-efficiency. Our team can help you identify your IT requirements, providing advice and support on which in-house server will best suit you.
Should an in-house server be the best solution for your business, we will ensure that your new IT infrastructure meets your business requirements today and into the years to come. We want you to be prepared for whatever the future holds.
The advantages of a Cloud hosted solution
Is The Cloud a better option than traditional server solutions? Is it cost effective? Is it more secure? We know the answer depends on you!
Cloud Computing can provide a number of real benefits to your business. More than ever before, basic IT functionality is now hosted in remote servers known as The Cloud. Available to any-sized business, this solution is becoming a more affordable option and can make a huge difference to your business.
At iTAG, we only offer Cloud Computing solutions we trust.
With strong security features and automatic updates, our hosted infrastructure solutions can give businesses improved IT reliability and consistency, as well as the option to work remotely.
A mixture of hosted and on-premise server solutions
The key to an effective, reliable business IT system is simple: flexibility. Our aim is to provide you with the right tools to achieve this.
The first thing to think about for your business, whether you are a new start-up or a larger organisation looking to grow, is your IT infrastructure.
Whilst some businesses prefer a traditional in-house server and others do almost everything in The Cloud, there is a third option.
Hybrid IT infrastructures combine both on-site local servers and hosted servers to give businesses a huge amount of flexibility. The Cloud can provide hosted services such as email or business applications, whilst an on-premise server handles the rest of your business’s IT needs, such as data storage and recovery, at a local level.
If your business requires the flexibility of the Cloud but the reliability of an on-premise server, a Hybrid Infrastructure solution may be the best option.
Reduce support needs with a remote system
Opting for a Remote Desktop or Citrix system can reduce the amount of expensive computer hardware that would be required for your business, especially for those with multiple users.
It can also reduce your overall IT support requirements, as these "thin clients" are lightweight computers, with reduced functionality, that depend on the Citrix remote server platform to perform the main data processing work.
This reduces the workload from the local device to the server, thus removing the need to manage and maintain the devices used by end-users.
By using a remote desktop system such as Citrix, we can provide safe, secure access to your business's systems. This allows us to more effeciently support and maintain your company infrastructure should anything go wrong.
Getting the right devices for your business needs
Keeping up with the latest technology can be daunting. We want to help you make the right choice for your business.
From equipping an entire office with the latest desktops to making sure you can stay connected on the road with a top-of-the-range smartphone or tablet device, our team knows that the most important factor in deciding the right device for your organisation is the users’ needs.
Working closely with your team, we can advise you on which options fit with your business plans and gives you the most flexibility.
Making sure you have the right network foundation
A solid, reliable network is the backbone of any successful IT infrastructure. To us, that means making sure you’re properly connected.
Businesses, whatever their size, can choose from one of two network solutions: cabled or wireless. While both have benefits, here at iTAG we know that every business is different. Sometimes, one option may be more suited to your organisation and growth plans than the other.
Here at iTAG, we want to help make sure your organisation has the most reliable, effective network possible.
We can provide support and advice on the choices available to your business, and help you decide on the solution that works best for you.
