Modern platforms

As consumers and markets shift, organizations must shift, too. The key to achieving this agility — and being able to innovate to differentiate and stay ahead of the curve — is modern platforms. 

Be data-driven.

Modern platforms are crucial to the performance of data and applications, and to the performance of the organization. By and large, the most successful DevOps organizations are buoyed by strong and collaborative platform teams.

From cloud, hybrid cloud, and multicloud, to hyperconverged/converged infrastructure and more, we can help you architect and support a modern data platform environment that drives data innovation and digital transformation across the business.

Ways we help include:

  • IT environment and workload assessment
  • Workload alignment for hybrid cloud environments
  • Modern platform evaluation, deployment, and management
  • Remediation of data and organizational silos
  • Platform integration, application modernization, and IT modernization strategy
  • IT operating models to support modern platforms (as a service, managed services, modern IT operations)
  • Stable architecture for hybrid infrastructure delivery
  • Governance and security for modern platforms

Distributed cloud models

As cloud usage continues to evolve, organizations have learned that specific cloud solutions may support some workloads better than others. Watch this video to learn more about the evolution of cloud to multicloud and federated cloud structures, which use a more modern distributed cloud model.

Converged means simplicity and scale.

Converged Infrastructure (CI) and Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) combine data center components into single, validated solutions with centralized management. Organizations can use CI and HCI to accelerate deployment, reduce operational costs, and improve utilization.

The latest HCI solutions bring even more to the table, such as integrations with containerized environments, independent server and storage scaling, hybrid infrastructure for cloud replication, HCI for the edge, and HCI as a service.

Insight can help you with CI and HCI solution strategies, deployment, management, and support. We partner with all leading OEMs of CI and HCI solutions.

Integrating new technologies

Startup companies have the luxury and ease of building IT environments using the newest technologies. Established organizations need to be more deliberate. Legacy systems impact data, storage, and the ability to seamlessly integrate new and emerging technologies to create a modern data center. It’s not possible, nor practical, to rip and replace entire legacy systems. Solution design therefore requires addressing a number of questions — best done with experts on our team.

  • What’s currently working? And what isn’t?
    In many cases, legacy systems are accompanied by specialized processes and databases that require enhancements and simplification. We help you evaluate and implement appropriate changes. 
  • What workloads could benefit from moving to cloud or data acceleration layers?
    We can help you map, assess, and align your workloads to the optimal platforms. For most organizations, the appropriate data center is hybrid.
  • What is your data capacity and is it sufficient?
    Work with us to better understand your data and its attributes, and to select, procure, and implement new storage solutions that deliver increased agility and scale with less risk.
  • Are your IT investments being maximized?
    By performing cost and benefit analyses, we can evaluate whether shifting IT resources — including technologies and personnel — might make sense.
  • Are you realizing the benefits you expected from newer technologies?
    Sometimes, integration challenges can make overhaul look deceivingly attractive. We can help you fine-tune and optimize existing infrastructure to control costs and reduce complexity.

Technical Debt — The Experts' Perspective

By assessing various solutions and implementing a long-term strategic plan, you can avoid the accumulation of technical debt during the transition from legacy systems. In this video, hear how Insight's experts advise limiting technical debt to stay on track with digital transformation and innovation projects.
