Remote Company IT Solutions – How Timico Guides Businesses to Enable Remote Working

Company IT infrastructures have been evolving since the moment they were first created. The boundaries are always being pushed. While we at Timico are advocates of the next technological generation, we’re also respected for being in touch with our customers’ needs. We understand that not all businesses are ready to take that step towards digital transformation. Consequently, the speed at which organisations are adopting cloud is not consistent from business to business.

However, as more businesses prepare to enable remote working, Timico is at the forefront of the digital transformation. Our success is testament to why our approach is vital in ensuring the project is a success.

If your company’s IT department is preparing to enable remote working, then read on. The steps you take now can put you on the front foot, control risk and help manage costs.

One of the key success factors of Timico is our ability to listen to our customers. When they book their free consultation with us, our consultants pay close attention to the requirements. We listen, and that’s why many of them have been in partnership with us for years. It’s our approach that makes a huge difference to the digital transformation of company IT infrastructures all over the UK.

In a previous blog post, we discussed how we enable employees to work from home. From SaaS products to connectivity solutions, and even by providing our 24 x 7 x 365 IT Helpdesk. In this post however, we’ll take that one step further. We’ll explain how we enable businesses to adopt digital transformation, enabling telecommuting at their own speed, while avoiding pitfalls.

Cloud Enablement

Cloud Enablement FrameworkThe journey to digital transformation can be complex and full of risk if not managed well. Our cloud enablement framework facilitates a successful cloud strategy through to delivery. It is fully supported by our managed service levels and designed specifically to support business objectives.

Experience tells us that no two businesses have the same requirements. That’s why our cloud enablement framework is designed to ask the right questions, to the right people, to fully understand our customers’ needs.

We begin with identifying areas of risk and growth. It is from these findings that successful strategies are designed for our customers to disrupt the marketplace. Our solution focused, rather than technology focused, approach is what makes us stand out.

We have partnered with leading technology vendors, such as Cisco, Fortinet, Mitel, Microsoft, Dell and more. These partnerships allow us to propose solutions that fit the business needs, and provide a solid grounding for future decisions.

Cloud Consult

We begin with in-depth discussions with the organisation’s CIO, CTO, IT Manager or IT Director. The discussions enable us to understand the business requirements and what the business’ plans are to build a recommended cloud strategy. We then use this information to plan a successful implementation, ensuring that not only is the present considered, but that foundations are laid for the future too.

Cloud Discovery

Our cloud discovery phase provides an understanding of the time, effort and ongoing cost required to deliver the cloud strategy and how the customer can take the next steps to achieving success.

We then provide a detailed breakdown of the time, effort and ongoing costs of the solutions. In addition to this, we identify how the customer can take the next steps to achieve the strategy set out in the consultation phase.

Our approach ensures our customers are involved, informed, and at ease, knowing their data and company IT infrastructure is in safe hands.

Infrastructure Offerings

With our customers’ infrastructure solutions varying from full-cloud, hybrid cloud and even those who are yet to move to the cloud, our service and solution portfolio is applicable to all scenarios and is something we are very proud of. All our products and services form part of an overall toolkit that collectively enables businesses at all stages of their digital journey to benefit from.

BUaaS & DRaaS

Business continuity and resilience is often a trigger for transitioning to the cloud. Many businesses choose Back Up or Disaster Recovery as a Service as their first steps towards digital transformation. However, with dedicated data centres linked by our own core network, we can offer colocation and hosting solutions for your backups. This means that your DR and business continuity plans are positioned well from the start, with all the resilience your business needs. Your data is off-site, and you benefit from our cooling, power and of course our core network.

Colocation and VDC

With remote working becoming a reality for many businesses, fast and secure access to company data is vital. If your connectivity is proving to be a bottleneck for remote workers, utilising our data centres could be the answer.

Colocation

Many organisations with existing hardware investments choose our colocation solutions to realise the costs. For businesses with a cloud strategy, relocating hardware to our dedicated data centres is a step towards digital transformation. It means that the business is then able to flex to change, making adopting a hosted solution in the future much easier.

With rack space or even dedicated racks on offer, we can ensure your hardware has the power, cooling and network infrastructure to keep your teams working.

Virtual Data Centre

Our flexible and scalable hosting platform supports workloads, delivering guaranteed compute and storage resources for VMs. Many businesses choose to use our Virtual Data Centre solutions due to scale and flexibility. From a single portal, our customers can spin-up new servers with full control over compute and cost requirements, with ease.

The solution aligns with the modern ‘pay-as-you-go’ model, meaning businesses have the flexibility and freedom to bend with whatever the world throws at us.

Public Cloud Solutions

With direct access from our core network into public cloud services such as Microsoft Azure, moving data into a preferred public platform to enable remote working has its advantages, but should be planned and managed well.

For businesses looking to enable remote working, public cloud solutions offer tantalising solutions. However, a move to the public cloud is not for the faint-hearted. This is where we can offer our experience and knowledge to design cloud solutions that work.

Security

At the heart of any digital transformation is security. Whichever blend of solutions your business uses to enable remote working, we have the technology in place to protect your company IT and data.

From Managed Firewalls, DDOS Mitigation and Managed SIEM services, through to our central NOC, we have all bases covered to ensure your staff stay connected, productive and secure.

Our security solutions are designed to wrap around the entire digital transformation strategy. As a result, your company IT infrastructure, your business data, and your peace of mind are in safe hands.
