Convergence : our approach

03-Approches

 

 

 

The Information Technology infrastructure and its employees is henceforth the backbone of the organisations and the nerve centre of developing their business.

Companies do not hesitate therefore, to invest in IT Infrastructure, and very often proceed to the stacking of successive applications and heterogeneous technologies, which results to complex, heavy, costly and hardly evolutionary solutions.

Since its creation in July 2005, Assyst Europe decided to follow a different approach.

In order to create infrastructures adaptable with full transparency and in all circumstances to the evolution of your needs, we emphasized the necessity of interconnecting the systems between them, replacing the static interconnections by dynamic and indeed to provide tailor-made comprehensive features, which were not necessarily present in the elements that constitute the infrastructure.

Our systemic approach allows us, therefore, to offer convergent, dynamic and agile infrastructures. It is due to this agility that every company will measure its competitiveness in the future.

Our mission is made possible thanks to our holistic vision of the market and our transversal competences developed by our team of IT specialists. We tend to put a stop to the silo approach in favor of a unified and agile way, impacting significantly six key parameters:

Performance

The performance of a system can only be achieved on the condition of establishing measuring indicators at all levels of the application process. Convergent infrastructure limits inconsistencies and bottlenecks. It centralizes management and strengthens the resources, thus it increases the rates of use and reduces operating costs, parameters, which, we can measure in the definition of the project with the customer (KPIs).

Before each integration process:

  • We identify and eliminate redundancies.
  • We group and strengthen the applications.
  • We analyze the frequency at which the applications are used and where appropriate, we use less expensive cloud solutions (pay-per-use), while always respecting security criteria.
  • We restructure and simplify infrastructures to the maximum.
  • We eliminate, we eliminate, we eliminate…

Scalability

Companies are faced with a very rapid evolution of technological tools and software. The modular and centralized design of our convergent architectures and the management tools

provide an unmatched scalability with a significant reduction of performance requirements and IT resources.

Security

Numerous companies have shifted to the Internet of Things hybrid infrastructure (on-site and on cloud) which leads to a growing disparity of connection modes and data storage.

Convergent infrastructure enables automated process management, procedure standardization and central management control monitoring. Thus, we reach a much higher security level.

Standardization

Another source of remote connections are the teleworkers, the customers, but also the connected objects whose data is increasingly stored on the cloud. This disparity of connections and the storage facilities become complicated and necessitate standardization of the connection modes. The convergence of an infrastructure leads to the standardization of computer equipment and networks (CMM – Computer Maturity Mode), but also to procedures of authentication by resorting to Agile Identity type approaches and Single Sign-On type technologies.

Storage capacity

A convergent infrastructure will allow  multiple servers to share the same storage unit (on-site or on the cloud), which itself shares many centrally managed applications.

Continuity

Convergent infrastructures enable deployment solutions of high availability through the redundancy of the servers and therefore priority business specific applications. It is possible to provide a partial redundancy, but also a complete infrastructure (Site Replication). Associated with a redundancy of the internet connectivity, a convergent network will provide a real time redundancy on all telecom services: Internet, email, teleworking and IP telephony.
