Case #1 (small startup - 3-5 people with no IT knowledge)
Vaktech believes in a well-planned and process driven approach for implementation, monitoring and managing remote networks. We thoroughly investigate and meticulously plan every minute detail before final implementation and delivery for our customers. For small startups Vaktech takes into consideration the specific needs of the organization and their employees to design a cost effective and efficient IT infrastructure. To cater to IT needs of small customers we have custom developed specific user manuals for various applications and technologies to help their staff. Besides, we conduct online training and demos to allay IT usage fears and help them be comfortable with their day to day activities. Automated scripts are run to take daily, weekly and monthly backups incrementally and infrastructure optimization activities are carried out regularly.
Case #2 (medium to large startup - 5-40 people with some IT knowledge)
Application Support (OMS/PMB/Accounting/...)
The fundamental approach of Vaktech for medium to large start ups remains same as the one for small start ups, but there will be greater focus on connectivity, security and business continuity aspects. For multi location scenarios clear cut designs are laid out in advance taking in consideration all the minute details. Sharing, access, VPN, communication, backup, redundancy, DR, policies, security, and compliance strategies are clearly documented and implemented.
How can you take over IT infrastructure and support them?
Vaktech has built its business strategies using industry standard ITIL framework for service support and service delivery models. A thorough audit of the existing infrastructure is conducted to understand inventory, assets, technology, processes, and compliances specific to that IT infrastructure. Improvements and modifications to existing infrastructure are proposed for smooth, efficient and optimal IT operations. IT objectives and goals, support structure, migration strategies, and IT optimization policies are laid out in a detailed manner. More and more companies are realizing the importance of remote infrastructure management, which not only facilitates cut on budgetary requirements, but also provides a platform to standardize their policies across all systems, to result in greater operating efficiency and consistent standards.
