Welcome to this comprehensive guide to enhancing your business's I.T infrastructure. In today's digital age, the role of I.T is more important than ever in propelling your business towards its objectives. However, understanding the complex landscape of applications, security measures, and modernisation efforts can be daunting. That's where we step in with our team at Cloudatmo. This guide will give you a walkthrough of our tried-and-tested approach, from a free hour audit to implementing robust strategies for security, modernisation, efficiencies, backups, and disaster recovery. Read on to discover how we can help bridge the gap between your current I.T status and your business goals.

Step 1: Free Hour Audit

We start by taking a comprehensive look at your current I.T setup. During our free hour audit, we assess what applications you currently use and how they are being employed in the company. By understanding your existing infrastructure, we can determine where it falls short of helping you meet the goals for your business. This also helps us to identify areas where improvements can be made in terms of security, modernisation, efficiencies, backups, and disaster recovery.

Step 2: Setting Goals

Once we have completed our audit of your current I.T setup, it's time to set goals for the future. We take a deep dive into understanding the objectives you're trying to achieve with your business, so that we can identify the gap between what you want and what you have. This helps us to pinpoint where we need to focus our efforts in order to help you reach your goals.

Some examples could be:

  • What are your current pain points in the business?
  • Is security a large focus for the business during this financial year?
  • Forgetting all technology, what does your businesses end goal look like?

Step 3: Solutions & Recommendations

Armed with this knowledge, we then put together a tailored plan of action for transforming your I.T infrastructure. This plan includes recommendations on tasks that can be done to help your business achieve its goals. At this stage, you can also count on us for advice and expertise, so don't hesitate to ask any questions or point out areas of concern.

These solutions might include:

  • How can we improve your security without impacting the business?
  • What tasks can be quickly implemented to improve any critical concerns?
  • What should your next steps be to start working towards the businesses strategic plan?
  • What can we implement to drive efficiency within the business?

Step 4: Implementations & Testing

Finally, we move onto the implementation phase. Here, we take care of the practical steps for setting up and testing your new solutions. This includes:

  • Creating a proof of concept so you can see how the solution works for your business.
  • Running extensive end-to-end testing to validate the solution with your team.
  • Implementing the solution with minimal business impact to ensure business continuity.

We also conduct extensive testing to make sure every part of the infrastructure is running smoothly before officially launching it.

Step 5: Post-Implementation Support

Once your new solution is up and running, our job doesn't end there. We provide ongoing support to ensure that any issues are quickly addressed and resolved.

This includes:

  • Ensuring that all components are working as expected for you and your staff.
  • Helping your staff adapt to these new changes.
  • Providing documentation to align with your business processes.
