Core Infrastructure

According to Sentry Research, a typical organization commits approximately 70% of its IT resources to maintain its existing infrastructure, leaving a meagre 30% for new initiatives. If you're like most companies, you have invested similarly in your IT platform. As a result, you need a way to transform your IT environment to align more closely with business goals - from desktop deployments to management and security - while maintaining a cost-effective and stable adaptive infrastructure.

At SSL, we understand challenges like this which face CIOs. With growing competition, increased pressure to provide ever-improving customer service, cost pressures and the utilization of other technology solutions demanded by organic growth or through mergers and acquisitions, it can become challenging to decide where to focus as well as what to keep and what to discard. SSL can help you find your way and achieve your objectives. We are pragmatic consultants who bring an implementation perspective to all our work. We realize that elegant solutions are meaningless unless they can be translated into sustainable business value.
