How we work
We work closely with your internal IT specialists to understand what you want to achieve so we can recommend solutions that complement your own technology stack and help you progress in the cloud.
igroup managed services can be tailored to your specific requirements from fully managed and hosted through to a lighter touch of monitoring and support to complement your own team.
Problems with your cloud infrastructure can seriously affect performance or lead to down time. Our team will:
- Identify and diagnose issues
- Report on the problem
- Resolve the issue
- Ensure it does not happen again
In most cases we resolve problems before you even notice them.
Your use of cloud infrastructure will change over time which will increase costs and potentially lead to redundant services still running.
Our managed optimisation service includes:
- Carrying out regular reviews of your infrastructure
- Identifying redundant or under-utilised resources
- Reallocating resources to improve efficiencies and reduce cost
Our SLAs protect your business with 24/7 monitoring and lets us deliver 99.999% uptime as standard. This helps:
- Improve accessibility of data
- Prevent application outages
- Analyse consumption levels
- Make performance recommendations
Monitoring enables you to manage and lower your overall cloud spend while maintaining performance.
We help you stay up to date with new cloud features:
- Review new services for compatibility
- Recommend new features to improve performance
- Monitor reliability of added services
As your cloud partner, we help you achieve a competitive advantage in your market.
