Strategy

We set the course

Only with a sound strategy can information technology be used in a goal-oriented, secure and economical manner. To this end, we evaluate your company's current technical infrastructure and determine whether it is in line with your work processes, business goals and future visions. Our team of experts supports you in the strategic alignment of your IT and helps to identify and evaluate the most important influencing factors. Based on the results of the analysis, we then develop a goal-oriented strategy that is specifically tailored to your current as well as future requirements and gets the most out of your corporate IT.

Our strategy-building block

Depending on where you are in the process of your IT project, on the one hand all participants have to be brought to the same level of knowledge and on the other hand decisions for the next steps have to be planned. However, this can only be achieved if influencing factors are made transparent and the dependencies are shown. The initial workshop is the basis for all parties involved in the data center process.

A data center project is influenced by various factors. Not all factors are always within the sphere of influence of one person or one department. Your executive management looks at your IT project with different parameters than the building services or networkers. However, all these stakeholders are important to achieve a result that suits you and your goals. Therefore, the different perspectives need to be made visible and understandable for everyone. With a strategy paper, you achieve maximum transparency and information density at the beginning of your project.

Where is the right location for your data center? By means of preliminary studies we create or check your data center strategy based on the different influencing factors. Depending on your requirements, we evaluate and assess the suitability of different locations. This site evaluation serves as an important tool for you to develop your concept with manageable effort.

Once the framework conditions and measures for implementing your IT project are known, we compile all the information into a general concept in a further step, so that you know what is needed. You can then check space requirements and determine costs for the IT budget.

The analysis of all geographic opportunities and risks is an important building block for your further decisions. Meteorological factors such as heavy rain or lightning frequency, geological risks such as earthquakes and attack hazards must be identified and evaluated. Measures are developed to minimize these risks. An environment analysis is part of the standard compliance according to DIN EN 50600.

We identify the specific sector requirements for KRITIS - i.e. critical infrastructure companies. With this analysis, we show you the solutions at your location so that your IT can be operated with a data center infrastructure that meets the specific demands.

When you have to make decisions, you need facts. We comprehensively document the conditions under which your project can be implemented.

With our data center feasibility study, we develop the IT and data center strategy according to your requirements. In doing so, we include location factors, such as a development plan, in the considerations and develop a rough concept from this. We document all considerations, whether existing buildings or new construction, or whether your requirements can be developed at the desired location. We examine the various opportunities and risks, the energy connection and connectivity. You will also receive a cost overview so that you can develop your business case.

In every phase of a data center project, whether small or large, it is worthwhile to check the implementation of the measures with regard to possible funding measures. We analyze the possibilities and modalities of the funding programs for you and support you in applying for the funds.

"Data Center Group's expert advice on the future direction of our IT and data center strategy was the first important cornerstone for greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness of our entire infrastructure."
