Infrastructure and Licensing Health Check

Infrastructure and Licensing Health Check

Evaluate your current network and infrastructure performance to ensure your IT environment is ready to meet the challenges of a growing business

Infrastructure and Licensing Health Check:

 

Non-Invasive Data Collection

Ensure your technology platform is optimized while simply going about your business. Quest begins by installing our cloud-based virtual appliance on your network, where it will engage for one week in a reiterating multi-step process that includes discovery, inventory, asset review, active testing deployment, performance collection, and review. Each step involves discrete tasks and analytics checks, affording you valuable technology performance metrics.

Practical Data and Documentation

When the data collection and assessment process is complete, Quest will produce a report detailing how you can improve your technology performance while keeping licensing fees in check. We’ll review the report and lay out a recommended best course of action so your infrastructure meets your business requirements as cost-effectively as possible. Key assessment results include, but are not limited to:

  • Inventory of your infrastructure and software components
  • Tech performance metrics - and how these stack up against thousands of other organizations
  • TrafficSim: VoIP, HD video, and VDI traffic testing - so you have solid baseline metrics for how your network handles these traffic types

Considerations for the Future

Quest’s Infrastructure and Licensing Health Check helps you prepare for change by identifying performance bottlenecks, rightsizing your environment, estimating software/device end-of-service/life, and evaluating your readiness to deploy advanced applications. We will also help you navigate the new vendor licensing models as the industry moves away from on-prem models to cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS) approaches. By highlighting these areas of concern within your environment, our comprehensive assessment will provide you the visibility you need to meet ever-expanding, always-shifting business demands.
