Data Center Strategies Workshop
To develop an architectural and technical strategy aligned with your business requirements, we suggest conducting a workshop where we invite your technology and business leaders to come together and discuss desired business outcomes, identify challenges, outline opportunities, and share ideas about strategies and architectures.
The duration of such a workshop depends on the type and number of stakeholders as well as the size and complexity of your data center(s).
Key objectives of this workshop are to analyze your requirements, review your existing architecture and come up with a strategy for your data center. Additionally, the workshop provides insights on skills, processes, and technologies that are relevant for building and managing state-of-the-art data centers.
As a first step our facilitators will start the conversation by giving an perspective on the possible, before analysing potential strategies and evaluating their values.
The second part of the workshop delivers proposed architectures and solutions aligned with previously identified strategies and desired business outcomes. The workshop will identify your current pain points, deliver a customized road map with concrete next steps and a detailed outline of resources needed to build or adapt your data center architecture. The workshop also supports the creation of a business case, ROI and value analysis of the proposed solutions.
After the workshop we will complete post-processing activities documenting all data and visual artifacts generated during the workshop, summarize all generated ideas and recommend next steps.
Strategy and Architecture Consulting
As mentioned previously, the ultimate goal for every organization is to develop a digital platform that combines multiple data center and computing options to deliver the best possible infrastructure for your business.
We will work with your teams to develop your strategy with regards to technologies, architectures and solutions meeting your business requirements. This includes a review of your existing approach as well as the development of a comprehensive architecture for your entire organization.
Data Center Solutions Design
Expanding on the results of the strategy workshop, our experts will determine the best architecture meeting all your requirements and delivering desired business outcomes. Once the preferred solution has been selected we will also provide a detailed design including an implementation and migration scenario and suggestions.
Designing a data center solution covers the following areas:
- Network Architecture & Engineering

- Server Architecture & Engineering
In case the design involves the re-design (migration) of existing data centers, we will also cover the following:
- Facility Assessment
- Consolidation & Relocation Planning
- Data Center Optimization
