As digital transformation accelerates, the modern IT environment is becoming increasingly complex and the trend is set to continue. Gartner predicts that by 2025, 85% of infrastructure strategies will integrate on-premises, co-location, cloud and edge delivery options, compared with 20% in 2020.
To meet growing end-user expectations and to remain competitive, organisations need to be agile. Dynamic and distributed hybrid infrastructures combining on-site hardware and servers, edge computing and multiple clouds have become commonplace, as new technologies are implemented.
As a result, a delivery model for new software, hardware, or infrastructure upgrades, that minimises disruption to keep data secure and mission-critical systems online, is crucial. Equally, there are multiple devices, software applications and operational logistics that must be considered, along with your organisation’s long-term goals.
Given that many employees work from more than one device, managing the configuration and deployment of multiple devices can be a time-consuming task for your IT department. An external IT solutions provider, such as Lexel Systems, can take care of device procurement, deployment and support, giving your business access to the latest technology without disrupting day to day operations.
With a modern deployment strategy, even national projects can be completed in a matter of days rather than months. Plus, with full hardware lifecycle management, including purchasing, deployment, hardware repairs and spares management, upgrades and retirements of old hardware, the success of future upgrades is also assured.
A successful deployment solution should include at a minimum:
- Application Packaging.
- Device Pre-configuration and Imaging.
- Cloud-resource Tagging.
- Standard Operating Environment (SOE).
By consolidating your technology, operational and business goals with a tailored and scalable approach, you can reduce complexity, cost and risk. A modern deployment strategy will keep you at the forefront of technology, whilst improving operational efficiencies. By ensuring you have the right measures in place to manage future technology refreshes and digital development, your company will be in a strong position for future growth.
