Systems management

​​Effective systems management is more important to your business than ever.  While managing your on-premise infrastructure is complex in its own right, a move to a cloud-based model brings a new set of challenges. If you're migrating certain workloads to private, public and hosted cloud environments, you need to control multiple architectures.  Your infrastructure and applications are no longer housed in a central location.




Robust systems management is critical to ensuring you can automate and digitise your environment and minimise the level of human intervention…and potential for error.

Our systems management services cover the following areas:

  • Data centres: better manage your hypervisors and leverage the Microsoft® System Center suite for the seamless management of applications…regardless of the type of infrastructure on which they're running.
  • IT service management: automate and optimise your Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) processes and Microsoft Operations Framework.
  • Desktop : automate and streamline desktop management tasks.
  • Mobile devices: control and secure your mobile device fleet.
  • Identity management: better manage identity across both on-premise and cloud-based infrastructures.

Our teams enable you to integrate the Microsoft® System Center suite with other technologies in which you may have invested, for example VMware, Cisco, EMC and NetApp.




 Working with us, you can:

improve business agility through provisioning, automation and orchestration
extract maximum value from your infrastructure
minimise the cost and administrative burden associated with managing your environment

reduce the possibility of human error

enhance security and achieve more effective governance
