Service management is the component that ties the technical services to business objectives.

Application management

Do you have an application you would like us to manage? It could be something simple, mainstream or specific and proprietary.

We have developed service offerings for a number of mainstream applications so that you can leave the headache to us. You would use us when you don’t have the in-house expertise or would like to ensure you obtain guaranteed service levels for the management of the application or business service. You might also have a proprietary application and prefer to leave the management of this with us, minimising the risk of having only a few key individuals understanding how the product works.

We also see this service as a key step toward Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).

By combing some of our other services like Hardware and Server Management with Application Management we can offer you a PaaS. 

Server Management

Managing an Operating System is now easier than ever. We are able to manage all the major operating system platforms and versions used in the mainstream, e.g. Windows and Linux. We have developed a standardised approach that helps to bring the costs down without sacrificing the service.

What’s more, we can manage guest operating systems that are on-premise, in the AC3 Cloud or even those workloads hosted with mainstream public clouds like AWS and Azure. Our standardised service management makes sure you receive a consistent approach across your entire enterprise. This is one of the building blocks for Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).

Hardware Management

If you’re super sensitive to security or just want someone to manage the lowest common building block in your environment, we can do it!

When managing hardware, we ensure the equipment is always working at its optimal levels so that it is functioning as intended. We monitor manufacturer/vendor release notes to confirm the equipment is running supported firmware versions and can do this on-premise or in a Hybrid environment.

You might also want to use this service when you need the highest level of assurances that the equipment is both logically and physically segregated.

Network & Security Management

If you’re looking for a safe pair of hands, you’ve found them!

The cornerstone of a stable ICT environment is the network and security platform. Our team of propeller heads love what they do and the results speaks for themselves. We manage our own public and private cloud environments which hosts all our customers and also extend these services to your platforms, either on-premise or with other providers.

Facilities Management

Having run our own data centres for approximately 15 years, we know what’s needed when it comes to facilities management. Whether its power, cooling, remote hands or capacity planning and asset management, we can help.

We have a dedicated team that can assist with whatever plans you have. More often these days we are engaged to assist in migrating away from an on-premise data centre to a purpose built facility and provide our customers with the best approach.
