Managed Print Audit
We will audit your managed printer estate as well as your Managed Print contract should you have one. This will ensure that you are able to get the most cost effective and efficient approach to print, which in turn will contribute greatly to corporate profits. We have found that a typical Print Audit shows savings of around 20% of current costs or will allow more functionality for your currently budgeted costs.
The audit process will cover:
- An evaluation of the existing infrastructure
- Support service efficiency
- Printer estate review
- Usage review
- Review of operational costs
- Documentation flow
- Office print procedures
- ISO / ITIL compliance where applicable
- Recommended improvements in technology cost savings and print strategy
The most surprising thing that has emerged during our Cloud Audit history is the low level of data security and backup procedures. If you are entrusting your data to a third party it is of paramount importance that your data is both secure and available to you on demand when you need it.
The audit process will cover:
- Review of existing cloud usage
- Review of your data security
- Review of your business continuity, disaster recovery and all associated documented procedures
- Evaluation and relevance of alternative cloud services
- Review of current network design
- Recommended improvements in operational cloud philosophy
- Achievable objectives and likely costs
With the advent of cloud services the way businesses plan for disaster recovery has changed forever. By using a cloud service to deliver IT delivery has become much more efficient. However our private cloud has many other benefits especially when it comes to Business Continuity.
Historically, a company had to take daily backs ups on site then copy over to a mirrored servers at a remote locations. Mirroring these critical IT systems also required the software to be identical at all locations. This was (and is) really expensive and should the worst happen recovering from a disaster could take a few days.
With Private Cloud there is never a disaster to recover from! When all your data is being continually pulled from your own Private Cloud co-located & mirrored in our Data Centres, Business Continuity is ‘designed in’ and is immune from any disaster, even if your office does blow up.
With JCom Cloud we will:
- Mirror from desktops to Data Centre
- Mirror between our two Data Centres
- Achieve Business Continuity whatever the circumstances
- Plan that a disaster will have as little effect on your services as possible
Not all cloud services are as secure as the JCOM model. Our three Data Centres offer seamless mirroring between Virtual Server Farms and Storage Area Networks all protected by High Availability Enterprise Class Firewalls.
If you are already using cloud services, we will be happy to audit your supplier’s strategy with respect to data security, Business Continuity and disaster recovery. Should we find that the service provided was not secure enough, we would propose a disaster recovery scenario in the event of an unplanned outage by linking you into our Data Centres to cover such a contingency.
From research carried out by IDC, nearly half of all businesses that lose data during a disaster never reopen, while the hours of downtime range from 300 to 1,200 per year and can amount to as much as 16% of annual revenue. The risks are clear if you have recovery systems pre-dating Private Cloud, or no cloud at all.
